Creamy Chicken Roll Ups

I ate these delicious bundles growing up and they have recently become a comfort food staple in our family.  The recipe uses store bought crescent rolls that are wrapped around a creamy chicken filling. They are incredibly easy to make and you can add a variety of different ingredients to jazz them up, if you would like.

Creamy Chicken Roll Ups

2 Cans Big and Fluffy Crescent Rolls
2 cups shredded chicken
1 8 oz brick of cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp Milk
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs

Preheat your oven to 350.  In a bowl, mix together the softened cream cheese with the chicken and the milk.  Set aside.

Unroll your crescent rolls.  Place a heaping tablespoon of the mixture in the  larger end of the roll.  Fold in the corners and roll, leaving no open spaces for the filling to escape.  Place on a baking sheet.  Continue these steps until you have run out of filling.  I usually make about 8 roll ups.

Brush each roll with a small amount of water and sprinkle with seasoned bread crumbs.  Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.

I love the flavor of these just as they are, but if you would like to add a little more of a kick, try adding walnuts, chopped sun dried tomatoes or a few tablespoons of pesto.  It is hard to mess these up, so get as creative as you like!

The filling is incredibly easy to make, but I sometimes will whip up a big batch of the filling over the weekend and then will freeze it into portions that will make about 4 rolls each, just enough for my family.  Then, all I need to do is thaw the filling and grab my crescent rolls.  Can’t get any easier than that!

  3. These sound good! I make something similar, but with less cream cheese and with pimientos. I LOVE the addition of pimientos! Here’s the recipe – http://sherrilynnpuz.blogspot.com/2011/05/chicken-squares.html
