Chicken Cordon Bleu Crescent Rolls make dinner easy and your family happy!
The other day Reece was talking to me about what he wanted to be when he grew up. The conversation went something like this:
Reece: I know what I want to be when I grow up!
Me: Oh yeah? What’s that?
Reece: I want to be an engineer. But not like an engineer like you and daddy. I want to be a real engineer – a TRAIN engineer.
Me: Wow! That would be cool!
Reece: Yeah. And I wouldn’t need to learn that much because I already know A LOT about trains. I mean, I’ve watched the Polar Express like at least 100 times.
Me: That’s true….
As much as I think I know about cooking, I’m always looking for new, creative, delicious, and FAST dinner options for our family. Sure, I’m a stay-at-home mom BUT I also work from home which can get a tad tricky from time to time. No matter how much time I think I have there never seems to be enough when it comes to dinner.
Chris gets home between 5:30 and 5:45 ever night. Soccer practice starts at 6. And it’s not next door.
Anyone else doing the math here?
Yep. Not only do we need fast meals, we need to be able to eat them quickly and sometimes, eat them on the run :)
I am officially a super-fan of this recipe and plan on making as many variations as my creativity allows for in the future. These rolls were gobbled up SO fast and I didn’t hear any complaints. That’s rare.
I made a honey-dijon sauce for the adults that also doubled as a quick salad dressing. YUM. I roasted up a couple chicken breasts real quick but you could easily substitute Rotisserie Chicken and it would be even easier. The trick is making sure you slice the chicken thinly enough that it’s nice and flexible and rolls well. But not too thin because then I run the the risk of my husband thinking I’m trying to feed him a vegetarian meal…and that is strictly forbidden ;)
Hands off ladies! He’s all mine…
You make these just like cinnamon rolls using Pillsbury Crescent Rolls for the base. I layered on cheese, ham, and chicken and then rolled it up. Cut ‘em, bake ‘em, eat ‘em! Dinner is served!
- 1 can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
- 6 slices Swiss cheese
- 6 slices deli ham
- 2 chicken breasts, cooked, thinly sliced
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 2 Tbls honey (optional)
- 2 Tbls Dijon mustard (optional)
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Remove crescent rolls from can and lay out in a long rectangle. Pinch the seams together well.
- Sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
- Layer first Swiss cheese, then ham and finally the chicken breast on the rolls.
- Roll up like a cinnamon roll and cut into 8-10 rolls.
- Place in a pie pan or 9-in square baking dish and bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
- Mix honey and Dijon mustard and serve with rolls if desired.
