An Easy Family Dinner Recipe
You know how you have your standard orders at your favorite pizza place? It seems like you end up ordering the same thing almost every time you call.. because those are the things that you’ve been craving all week.
We definitely have ours, and other friends of our have their favorites. One of them that is very popular is a chicken roll. You can get them in a few different varieties, but all of them are so loaded with cheese that really, they aren’t even that good.
Here’s where most pizza places loose us. All the gobs of cheese. Pizza to me doesn’t have to have so much cheese on it, more toppings the better. Cheese, yes, but a good ratio. Like this Pizza Sandwich recipe has a good ratio of all the ingredients, so you can tell its going to be good.
But I love the idea of this Bacon Ranch Skillet Chicken Roll for dinner that’s just about as easy to make as ordering take out!
How To Make Bacon Ranch Skillet Chicken Rolls
Use a rotisserie chicken from the store to make this an even faster meal, then just toss it in a bowl with scallions, bacon, cheese, ranch dressing and Worcestershire sauce.
When the filling is done, grab a package of crescent rolls and roll them out slightly a cutting board and then pinch all the seams together.
Dump the filling down the middle of the roll and carefully bring up the sides of the dough to pinch it together. Make sure you get all the seams sealed so the filling doesn’t leak out when it’s cooking.
Cut the rolls into 8 pieces and get a cast iron skillet ready with some melted butter. This is so the bottoms of the rolls get really crispy before baking the rest of the way in the oven…you could skip this step but I don’t recommend it.
You could also bake this as a whole roll, just transfer it to a sheet pan before cutting and bake. But there’s something about the crispy bottoms and the tops of these Bacon Ranch Skillet Chicken Rolls that make them so unbelievably good.
