Chicken Parmesan Crescent Rolls

These quick and easy Chicken Parmesan Crescent Rolls are made with frozen chicken strips and are perfect for lunch, dinner, or an after-school snack.  

A few months ago I was tasked with making dinner for my family but had no idea what to make. I had about 10 minutes until they would be home, so I started frantically searching recipes online.

After coming across a recipe for chicken parmesan crescent rolls, I was able to make a similar version with what I had on hand.

I loved it because I don’t like cooking on weeknights and felt like I could whip up something quick without sacrificing flavor or nutrition for the picky kids.

Even though it’s not a recipe you’ll find in your grandmother’s cookbook (sorry grandma!), it turned out to be one of our favorites!

There are tons of variations you can do with this recipe, including using different sauces, rotisserie chicken, and cheeses.

I chose to use marinara and mozzarella for this post, but you can always use pesto and provolone or an alfredo sauce and cheddar cheese as well!
