Chicken Fajita Crescent Rolls

Chicken Fajita Crescent Rolls |

I love to transform boring leftovers with these quick and easy, family-friendly, and super FUN Chicken Fajita Crescent Rolls!

“Leftovers are for quitters.” 

I saw a t-shirt the other day with those amazing words of wisdom on it and it made me laugh out loud.  My wife LOVES leftovers, but I loathe them.  Transforming leftovers into a brand new meal, though?!  I’m 100% down for that!  

Ever get to the point in using up your leftovers where there’s not nearly enough left to feed the family but you realllly don’t want to cook a whole another meal?  Yup, that was me the other day.  

These One Pan Baked Chicken Fajitas happen at least once every two weeks in our home.  The kids LOVE them and they are such a quick and easy weeknight dinner.  We got two full dinners out of them, and then I was left with the tiniest amount of scraps on day 3.  And that’s when I noticed a can of crescent rolls hidden deep in the fridge immediately followed by my four year old whining in my ear, Daaaad what’s for dinner?!?! 

Chicken Fajita Crescent Rolls!  

Making these Chicken Fajita Crescent Rolls are incredibly easy and an activity you can get the whole family involved with.  5 minutes of prep (10 if your kids are helping because they slow EVERYTHING down… am I right?!) and just 12 minutes in the oven.  Boom, instant dinner.  

And really, what’s not to love… tender fajita chicken.  Sautéed onions and peppers.  ALL the cheesy goodness.  And of course those buttery flaky crescent rolls.  

Serve up these Chicken Fajita Crescent Rolls with guacamole, sour cream, and/or salsa!  

Let’s review:

  1. Make and enjoy One Pan Baked Chicken Fajitas.  Margaritas also welcomed 🙂 
  2. Use up those leftovers with a family friendly weeknight dinner… Chicken Fajita Crescent Rolls!  (margaritas still welcomed).
