Easy Chicken Pesto & Sun Dried Tomato Croissants #SundaySupper

These easy chicken pesto and sun dried tomato croissants are made with rotisserie chicken and store bought croissants for a flavorful savory appetizer.

I’ve been on my croissant kick with the spinach and feta breakfast croissants and peanut butter chocolate croissants so why not share an easy chicken croissant recipe that uses rotisserie chicken! I really want everyone to see that it doesn’t take a lot of special skills or tools to make something delicious like these chicken croissants.

How to make pesto chicken croissants

  1. Unroll and separate refrigerated crescent rolls into individual triangles
  2. Spread pesto and top with shredded parmesan cheese, rotisserie chicken, and jarred sun dried tomatoes
  3. Carefully roll the triangles up
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes

Please note when making

  • The oil in the pesto does get all over the baking sheet while baking. I just placed all of the cooked chicken croissants on a paper towel to dry. The oil actually gave them a nice bit of crispiness on the bottom which was a nice surprise the first time I made them.
  • When rolling some of the ingredients may fall out. That’s okay just tuck them back in.

Other variations:

  • Make this a vegetarian recipe by eliminating the chicken and substitute with sauteed mushrooms and onions or red peppers
  • Sub the Parmesan cheese for Gruyere cheese 
  • Swap chicken for ground sausage, shredded turkey, bacon, or prosciutto

This is a kid chef friendly recipe
