Chicken Roll-Ups are a super yummy meal that my whole family absolutely loves.
Tender shredded cooked chicken and broccoli are rolled in flaky crescent rolls and baked in a creamy sauce. So easy, so cheesy and a cinch to pull together with simple ingredients.
Easy Dinner in Minutes
Crescent rolls filled with chicken and cheese, in a creamy sauce is absolutely delicious!
The sauce is perfectly creamy and can make an ordinary day, extraordinary! This baked goodness is the perfect comfort food for any occasion!
The best part is that you can use any ingredients you have on hand to fill these roll ups.
Ingredients & Variations
CHICKEN While this recipe calls for chicken, it would taste just as good with roast beef, ham, or even leftover turkey. So get creative and add your favorites!
SAUCE If you don’t happen to have cream of chicken soup on hand, substitute any other creamed soup like mushroom or cream of broccoli. Or whip up an easy cheese sauce with garlic powder and seasonings. If all else fails, a jar of Alfredo will do just fine!
BROCCOLI Instead of steaming broccoli, use leftover roasted broccoli or asparagus! Add mushrooms or even leftover roasted veggies.
How to Make Chicken Roll Ups
You’re just 3 simple steps away from making this easy recipe:
- Make the sauce (as per recipe below).
- Fill crescents with chicken and cheese and roll.
- Place in a pan over sauce, sprinkle with cheese and bake
Let the dish sit for a few minutes to allow the sauce to set and bon appétit!
Tips for Success
For crispy crescent perfection, bake until golden brown. It’s important not to under-cook these.
Make sure to use precooked meats for this recipe. Raw meat will not have enough time in the oven to cook thoroughly.
Last but not least, sharp cheddar adds extra flavor, but feel free to use your favorite if sharp cheese is not on the menu. Finally, try sprinkling with something colorful to garnish:
- Extra cheese on top!
- Chopped or dried herbs, or green onions
- A sprinkle of smoked paprika or dried chilies
- Even chopped jalapenos for some extra spice on top can make this dish look appealing and super appetizing!
Chicken roll-ups will last in the fridge for up to 3 days. They taste pretty darn good cold, but to reheat, just simply microwave or place in the toaster oven for a few minutes and they are good as new! A few drops of hot sauce for that added spice will do the trick!

I really want to make this, but am afraid that the dough that is sitting in the sauce will not cook. Will it cook or be soggy due to it being in the sauce? Thanks!
Hi Tara, the portion that remains in the sauce does stay moister while the dough on the top gets a nice brown crust. We find it to be a nice balance.
What an excellent recipe!! My family loved it This one is a keeper and going in my recipes. I had left over chicken so i put it down the middle of the casserole dish and cooked up some egg noodles to use up extra sauce.
So glad your family loved it Teri!

Do these freeze well?
I haven’t tried freezing this recipe.
Can you use cream cheese instead of milk?
I have only made the recipe as written, so can’t say for sure. Please let us know if you try it Fran!
I made these rolls today but instead of using 2 cups of cheese (670 calories) in the white sauce, I stirred in 1/4 of nutritional yeast (60 calories) and almond milk(60 calories per 2 cups) instead of regular milk(300 calories per 2 cups). I huge calorie and lactose reduction.
I also made my own bread dough using white wheat flour instead of all purpose for extra nutrition.
They are delicious!
instead of cutting it i did it as a loaf then cut when done it was good just took a little longer to cook
That’s a great idea Connie, thank you for sharing!
Was okay. Took me over 30 minutes to cook it and brown the tops.
