Chicken Roll-Ups

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This chicken roll-ups recipe has been around for years. I know because I made them for my daughters when they were growing up. This is the perfect recipe to make for dinner if you have some leftover chicken or any meat for that matter. In many cases, we think of a roll-up like a wrap, a cold sandwich with meat and veggies. These are great dinner entrees all your family will enjoy.

Your kids and grandkids will love making them from start to finish. Plus, they will ask for second and thirds. My family loves the flaky croissant roll, filled with savory chicken and topped with a creamy gravy. In case you missed this post, Roasted Broccoli Recipe

Preheat oven to (350°F) = (176°C). Combine the shredded chicken, cream cheese, and onion until evenly distributed. When cooking these I use a cookie sheet with parchment paper for easy clean-up.

Step Five

Roll out the crescents and place a heaping spoonful on each triangle at the widest end and roll it. You can see where I folded the ends over the chicken mixture to hold it in place.

What can I serve with these?

How long can I store uncooked chicken?

According to the USDA and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, you can store raw chicken in your refrigerator for 1-2 days. It doesn’t matter if its legs, breasts, or a whole chicken, 1 to 2 days is the maximum time to store raw chicken to be safe.

How do I store these baked chicken roll-ups after baking?

First of all, store the chicken soup gravy in a separate container so the roll-ups don’t become soggy. I store mine in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days maximum.

How do I reheat them after being in the refrigerator?

Preheat your oven to (350°F) = (176°C) and place them on a cookie sheet and reheat them for about 15 minutes or until heated through.

Can I freeze them?

Yes, you can. Place the unbaked or baked chicken roll-ups in an airtight container and place them in the freezer. Reheat them by placing them on a cookie sheet and bake at (350°F) = (176°C) 15-20 minutes or until baked through. Remember, the chicken is already cooked, so you are just reheating them.

Can I make these with different meats?

Yes, you can. I have made these with turkey, leftover finely chopped roast beef.

Would I be able to make a vegetarian version of these?

I have substituted cooked chopped broccoli for the chicken. It’s fun that this recipe is so versatile.

    These sound really good but I think I might trade out the gravy for cream gravy or country gravy (which ever
    you want to call it) What ever you dip it in, it sounds good. Got to try this.
