Freezer Meal Recipe: Chicken Crescent Rolls

5 / 5 (1 review)

Easy chicken crescent rolls recipe!

This is an easy recipe to throw together for dinner and as a freezer meal! The chicken filling freezes well to enjoy for another time. Of course, if you want to make it for a meal right away, there is no need to freeze it. It can totally be an easy meal ready to serve in less than 30 minutes! Even better, double or triple the recipe, prepare some of it for today, and freeze the rest for another time.

The chicken filling is simple, but full of flavor. By the way, this recipe is a really great way to use up leftover chicken!

As mentioned above, you can freeze the filling part of the recipe for another day. You will want to keep a can of the crescent rolls, some milk, and a can of the cream of chicken on hand for when you are ready to enjoy the meal though.

I usually use about 1 to 2 tablespoons of filling per roll. Doesn’t have to be exact, just try to use up all of the filling somewhat evenly among the 8 rolls. For cooking the rolls, follow the instructions on the roll packaging. You can totally make your own crescent roll dough too, but the refrigerated, canned dough is super easy!

This recipe is really similar to one my mom made while I was growing up. We loved it with and without the gravy. I suppose it is similar to biscuits and gravy really, except that it has the chicken filling in there. It definitely fits in the “comfort food” category! Enjoy!

Here are some more recipes that you can use to put crescent roll dough to good use:

    I thought you said NOT to freeze cream cheese? Also you say not to freeze raw eggs but in other recipes posted on this site it includes eggs. This is very annoying why post the recipes if you aren’t supposed to freeze them???????

    • Micah

      Cream cheese and eggs can be frozen when incorporated with other things. You just can’t put a case of eggs or a pack of cream cheese in the freezer.

  • Tara

    Do you freeze the crescent rolls also or do buy them when you are ready to make this?

    • Monica

      I just have them on hand in the fridge. The rolls are usually good in the fridge for 1-2 months. So I will plan to use that freezer meal in that time period, or add the crescent rolls to my shopping list if I want to freeze the meal for a longer time.
