Stuffed roll dinners are my favorite because the whole family loves buttery crescent rolls and they are super versatile when it comes to filling.

I started years ago making beef empanada roll ups for weeknight dinners and my love has only grown. If you like sweet rolls, don’t miss my cranberry orange crescents.

Shopping list/Ingredients

These buffalo chicken rolls need just a few simple ingredients and they are great for using up any leftover rotisserie chicken you may have in the fridge.

What you need:

  • Cream cheese, softened
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • Buffalo hot sauce (I prefer Frank’s)
  • Ranch seasoning mix
  • Crescent roll dough
  • Green onions or chives (optional garnish)

I’ll let you in on a little secret, this cream cheese recipe also makes a fantastic dip for vegetables, crackers, chips. You name it!

How to Make It

Go ahead and preheat your oven to 375°F.

Then to begin, cook and shred your chicken. This recipe takes very little prep time and if you already have leftover chicken or rotisserie meat, it will be that much easier!

Just be sure the chicken is chopped or shredded into small pieces.

In a large bowl, stir together the cream cheese, shredded cheese, shredded chicken, hot sauce, and ranch seasoning mix until well combined.

Then, unroll the crescent roll dough and separate the triangles.

Take a spoonful of the chicken mixture and spread it over the top of each triangle.

Feel free to cover all of the crescent dough with filling and roll it up.

Place the rolled crescents on an un-greased cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the crescent rolls are golden brown.

What to Serve With Buffalo Chicken Crescent Rolls

If you are making this recipe as a meal, I recommend serving it with a side salad or some chopped fresh veggies and ranch dressing or bleu cheese.

Fresh fruits would also balance the spicy flavors nicely.

If you have leftover filling, warm it in a small slow cooker or microwave for 30 seconds at a time until the chicken mixture and cheese are melted and well combined.

Store leftovers in an airtight container. They’ll make a great quick lunch the next day.
