Regardless if I’m putting together a party food menu or looking for a way to use a rotisserie chicken from one of my trips to Costco, this flavor combo is here to stay.

How to Make the Best Chicken Bacon Ranch Crescent Bombs Recipe

Do You Have to Use a Muffin Pan to Make Chicken Bacon Ranch Crescent Bombs? A muffin pan is important for the crescent rolls to maintain their shape. The chicken filling may cause the crescent roll dough to spread unevenly if placed individually on a sheet pan to bake.

  • Kitchen tools you’ll need: 12 cup muffin pan, sharp knife and cutting board, measuring cups and spoons and cheese grater.
  • This recipe uses a standard size muffin and cupcake pan.
  • You can brush the wells of the muffin pan with butter or spray them with cooking spray. Either way the goal is to prevent sticking.
  • For a timesaver, the chicken filling can be made in advance then chilled in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you’re ready to assemble the crescent bombs for baking.
  • I use sharp cheddar cheese in these crescent rolls bombs, but feel free to adapt with whatever flavor of cheese you have on hand in the same amount.
  • Use a quality brand of crescent rolls for the best result. I’ve tried some private label store brands that don’t seem to hold up as well as the original Pillsbury brand. If you’ve had success using a particular private label brand, go for it!
  • When pressing the crescent dough into the muffin pan, leave enough dough overhang so that you can easily grasp the corners to secure on top.
  • While baking, some of the filling may ooze from the openings in the dough. Don’t fret, as soon as you remove them from the oven, take an offset spatula or knife and press it back into place.
  • These chicken bacon ranch crescent bombs can be gently reheated in the microwave although please note they won’t be quite as crisp as they are fresh from the oven.
  • Store leftovers chilled in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

  1. They sound yummy, but can they be frozen up to step 6 and then frozen. I am trying to prepare ahead for Christmas

    1. Hi Michele, what a great idea, I think they could be. Assemble and place them onto a sheet pan then freeze until solid and package. Bake from frozen, allowing some time on the counter while the oven preheats, and wait to brush with melted butter and Parmesan until just before baking. You may need to add time as needed to bake through.
