Chicken Roll Ups

Wow - these were super good, definitely not the healthiest thing I have put on my blog, but they were delicious!! These were something that was easy to mix up early and then bake later, which is exactly what I did. While I was fixing Saturday lunch, I baked up my chicken breasts and threw them in the good old Kitchenaid!! This was a fabulous tip that I just learned - a quick and easy way to shred chicken - throw it in your stand mixer and let it whirl... Done in less then a minute - fabulous!! While it was in there I just added the rest of my ingredients and then threw it in the fridge. Later that afternoon when I was ready to get supper going I just grabbed the bowl and starting rolling!! It was fabulous... We paired this with some fresh fruit (to try and make it a little healthier) and then tried to not eat all of them! :)

Chicken Roll Ups
(recipe found on pinterest via

2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
2 cans crescent rolls
butter and bread crumbs, if desired

Combine chicken, cream cheese and cheeses. Roll out crescent rolls. Place filling on wide end of crescent roll and roll up, tucking in the sides to avoid loosing your filling! Place on greased baking pan and brush with butter. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.


  1. Those sound really good, but I don't get how to shred your chicken in your kitchenaid? Which attachment do you use? I would love to learn this little trick! I hate shredding chicken!

    1. While it is still warm you just throw it in the bowl and start the mixer... I just used my regular paddle attachment that came with it! I had never tried it before either and heard someone talking about doing it and thought I would try it. Couldn't believe how easy it was!!
