Lemon Pepper Chicken Roll-Ups

If you’re looking for something you can make when
a) you’re broke
b) you’ve got any banshee children swinging from the ceiling fan
c) you like to splurge a little in the not-so-healthy eating area,
CONGRATS! You’ve found the perfect recipe here.

I’ve seen these all over Pinterest and after tweaking them a little bit to my liking, they are the best. My 3 and 1 year old eat these up. They’re so easy, dirt cheap, and really tasty.

Here’s what you need:

1lb chicken tenders (you’ll want at least 8 tenderloins)
1 tube crescent rolls
1 lemon
1 jar pasta sauce for dipping
About 3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
(you need GOOD shredded parmesan for this!)
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2-3 tablespoons grated parmesan
salt, pepper

First off, preheat your oven to 375° and spray a baking sheet. Then put a little olive oil in a skillet on about medium-medium high heat. Add the chicken tenders to the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Squeeze the lemon allllll over the chicken.

(I really struggle with seasoning the HECK out of chicken but I promise this is all the seasoning you need for this!)
While the chicken is cooking, mix up the mayo + grated parmesan and set aside.
Let the chicken cook on each side for around 10 minutes until it’s done and browned up nicely, then remove from heat.
Unroll/pull apart the crescent rolls and arrange on the sprayed baking sheet.
Add one piece of chicken to the wide end of each crescent roll and then add a dollop of your mayonnaise + parmesan mixture right on top of the chicken.

Then add a little finger full of shredded parmesan on top of that.
Pull the skinny end of the crescent roll over the chicken, mayo mixture, and cheese.

Sprinkle the tops with some more of the grated parmesan and pop in the oven for about 15 minutes until they’re nice and golden brown.
While those are baking, warm your pasta sauce in a saucepan. I use that time to throw together a salad too!
