I have found that if I can roll dinner up in a crescent form, my kids will eat it. However, that means that my husband and I have to eat it too, so it’s difficult to find something that will please both the picky-eater kids and the advanced-palate parents (ha ha! Okay, so we really don’t have an advanced palate. I still really love macaroni and cheese from a box). Anyway, these roll-ups were so easy to make and everyone in the family loved them. My kids dipped them in ketchup (they love ketchup with their ketchup) and my husband and I dipped them in honey mustard sauce.
Chicken Cordon Bleu Roll-Ups
This dinner can be thrown together in a matter of minutes and is perfect for kids and adults alike!
2 (8 oz each) packages refrigerated crescent rolls (I used Pillsbury brand)
16 slices Swiss cheese (mine were 2x1" in size)
16 slices deli ham, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups cooked chicken, shredded or cut into bite-size pieces
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Unroll crescent roll dough. On each roll, place a piece of swiss cheese, piece of ham, and a tablespoon or two of cooked chicken. Roll the roll around the cheese and meat and place on a large cookie sheet (or other baking pan - mine was a 15x10x1" cookie sheet).
Once you have rolled up all the roll-ups, use a pastry brush to brush the tops of the rolls with the beaten egg (you could also use melted butter if you prefer). Sprinkle the tops of the rolls with the bread crumbs.
Place cookie sheet in the oven and cook for 13-16 minutes, or until the rolls are golden and full cooked.
