Simple + Brilliant BBQ Chicken Pinwheel Bake

BBQ Chicken Pinwheel Bake
Five tasty ingredients turn into dinner magic with a quick roll, slice and bake. MORE+ LESS-

I’m swooning over these super- easy BBQ Chicken Pinwheels. When I lived in Kansas for a short time, I was immersed in a world of BBQ. Maybe it was the time of year, but it seemed everyone was always outside gathered around the grill making his or her favorite BBQ recipe.

I’ve taken that smoky BBQ flavor and wrapped it up in a flaky crescent roll with chicken and cheese. Then baked it until it’s golden brown and that delicious sweet and smoky flavor fills the air. The best part? You can make these any time of the year… no grill needed!

BBQ Chicken Pinwheel Bake

Start by combining your favorite BBQ sauce (about ½ a cup) with 2 cups of shredded rotisserie chicken.

Chicken With BBQ Sauce

Unroll your crescent dough crescent dough and pinch the seams closed.

Unroll Crescent Dough

Spread your BBQ chicken mixture over the crescent roll dough, leaving about a 1/2 an inch on one side uncovered. Top with 3/4 of a cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese.

Add Chicken and Cheese

Roll up the crescent dough from the opposite side of the uncovered edge and then pinch the seam closed once it’s rolled up tight.

Roll Up

Use a sharp knife to slice into 8 equal-size pinwheels and then place them, cinnamon-roll style, in a round 8-inch or 9-inch pan. Bake them until golden brown and the center is cooked through.

Place Crescent Roll Into Pan

Once it’s done, sprinkle it with a little cilantro. Trust me on that one. It’s a great combo!
