Do you have a meal that totally screams comfort food to you? For me, one of those is these chicken roll ups! I grew up eating them regularly, and they are now one of the most requested meals from my own kids too! Not only are they delicious, but they are super quick + easy to make!! So let’s get to the recipe!


6-8 chicken breasts (rotisserie chicken works great too if you are short on time)

chicken broth

1-2 8 oz packages cream cheese

crescent rolls

chicken gravy mix

As you an see by these ingredients, this is one of those recipes I just kind of eyeball. You don’t want your chicken mixture to be too dry, but you also don’t want to just be eating a spoonful of cream cheese…so do what looks right on the cream cheese vs chicken ratio. 🙂



Cook chicken in crock pot with chicken broth. When it is done, shred the chicken and mix with cream cheese. Unroll crescent roll dough. Scoop a spoonful of chicken mixture onto each of the roll triangles and roll them up into a ball, making sure chicken mixture is sealed inside.

Bake at 350 for 15-20 until the tops are a golden brown.

While roll ups are baking, mix up your gravy. I just use the powdered gravy mix you add to water.

When rollups are done, pour some of the chicken gravy on top and enjoy!
