Shredded chicken, barbecue sauce and Colby-Jack cheese are rolled up in pizza dough then baked to perfection. These BBQ Chicken Rollups would make for a yummy dinner or appetizer!
The other night I was getting ready to make our fave BBQ Chicken Pizza for dinner when I realized I was out of yeast. So there went the plans of making our homemade pizza dough. Luckily, I had a tube of crescent rolls sitting in the fridge, so I created these BBQ Chicken Rollups instead!
Cooked, shredded chicken slathered in barbecue sauce then rolled up in pizza dough. They are amazing! I added some Colby-jack cheese and cilantro for added flavor. It was a good decision on my part. They turned out so so good! I can only imagine how much more delicious they’ll be when I use my homemade pizza dough next time. 🙂
