Easy Chicken Bacon Ranch Pull Apart Rolls Recipe

I love having sons, they’re easy to please when it comes to meal planning. I learned rather quickly that whatever I plan to make there should be plenty of it. I’m delighted that they love leftovers and I never hear a complaint from them when we have a repeat dinner. I often try to reinvent leftovers a bit but at times it’s an encore presentation of the original. That’s how these Chicken Bacon Ranch Pull Apart Rolls came to be using leftover roasted chicken. They enjoyed it so much that I began picking up deli chicken to make them as a grab-and-go meal. It worked like a charm and has now become one of our favorites.

  • You can also use Hawaiian rolls or any similar size pull apart rolls and buns for this recipe.
  • I use deli chicken for this recipe for ease of preparation. That said, you can use leftover grilled chicken, roasted chicken, rotisserie chicken or shredded chicken breasts with excellent results. The chicken just needs to be cooked.
  • You can adapt using your favorite flavor of cheese or what you have on hand. The colby jack combination is a stellar option, when using it you can never go wrong. You could use pepper jack cheese for added spice or sharp cheddar cheese.
  • Since these gooey rolls are designed to be pulled apart, it’s important to use crumbled bacon in place of whole pieces so they can be pulled apart more easily.
  • Feel free to use light butter, low fat cheese and light salad dressing to lower the calories, I’ve found they work beautifully, too.
  • These rolls can be assembled in advance, covered with plastic wrap and chilled. Doing so will have them ready to be baked when you’re ready to eat.
  • When making in advance, brush with melted butter and season the top per the recipe just before baking.
