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!
Start by combining your favorite BBQ sauce (about ½ a cup) with 2 cups of shredded rotisserie chicken.
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.
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.
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.
Once it’s done, sprinkle it with a little cilantro. Trust me on that one. It’s a great combo!
