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 every 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.
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!
This delicious and easy recipe is one of several that inspired my new book 100 Creative Ways to Use Rotisserie Chicken in Everyday Meals. I love using rotisserie chicken to create meals that my family will love! You’ll find casseroles, bakes, comfort food, soups, sandwiches and more!
I have an entire chapter devoted to meals you can can create in 20 minutes or less and another devoted to recipes with 5 ingredients or less. This cookbook is filled with simple and fast recipes that your whole family will love. Check it out!

I’ve just read this and it sort of reminds me of the armenian rolls which I use a lot for speed. Two speedy comments buy the sliced turkey breast – oil browned is moist and more delicious – and mix the honey and mustard and ‘frost ‘ like cinnamon rollsI – these will be my hurry hurry dinners on the road. And next summer for picnics. keep on sharing, stay safe and healthy Jan

Great idea! Thanks for the feedback!
I have made these several times and they are easy and amazing! My family loves them! Thank you for the great chicken cordon bleu crescent roll recipe! Genius!
I made these tonight. Substitute the Swiss cheese for cheddar but unfortunately the dough stayed raw. Not sure what went wrong.

Sounds like you didn’t bake them long enough? Or maybe your pan was a little too small. There should be some space between the rolls before going into the oven. Hope that helps!
Love these! And loved how your son has decided to be a train engineer. Aren’t kids just something else!!?? Question – do you ever sleep? I do NOT know how you do everything you do!!
I’m skipping the ‘comment luv’ – which I DO love… but since my most recent post is about making Blood Pudding under the ‘Historic and Interesting Recipe’ category.. I’ll skip the ‘comment luv’ this time!! ; o )
Sounds like a delicious meal. Although in the picture your slices of chicken look kind of thick. I’m wondering how you were able to roll the dough up into such a round log..???
