Chicken Roll-Ups

Here’s a recipe I found a while ago and it tasted so great that it is now a staple in our house. Basically, Chicken Roll-Ups are yummy goodness inside crescent rolls. Um, yes please!

I suggest reading through the instructions before attempting to make it. The recipe is NOT difficult to make, but there are a lot of steps to follow. Take your time and your family will thank you with empty plates. I promise!

  11. Place the crescent rolls seam-side down on top of the soup mixture in the baking dish
  12. Drizzle the remaining soup mixture on top of the roll-ups (use as much or as little as desired, you do not have to use the entire amount of sauce)

The Chicken Roll-Ups are AMAZING! My hubby went nuts for them, so we make them about once a month. Give it a try and you won’t be disappointed.
