Servings 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg dozen dinner rolls
  • 12 oz chicken {shredded}
  • ¾-1 cup pizza sauce {or marinara}
  • 8 oz mozzarella cheese {shredded}
  • 3 leaves basil {chopped}

Butter Topping

  • 2 tbsp butter {melted}
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp parsley flakes
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese {grated}

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Line a 9x13 baking pan with foil {leaving enough hanging over the edges to cover the rolls for baking}.

  2. Cut dinner rolls in half using a serrated knife. Place the bottom half of the rolls into the foil lined pan. Top the rolls with the shredded chicken {being sure that each roll is covered with chicken}. Add pizza sauce evenly over the top of the shredded chicken. Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top of the chicken and pizza sauce to cover. Finally, distribute the chopped basil over the top of the cheese and place the top half of the rolls onto the toppings.

  3. Combine the butter topping ingredients and brush {or spoon} over the top of the rolls. Using the foil overhang, cover the rolls with foil and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the filling is warm and the cheese is melted. Remove the foil from the top of the rolls and continue to bake for an additional 3-5 minutes.

  4. Remove from the oven, pull apart {or cut} and serve with your favorite side dish. Refrigerate leftovers and reheat in the oven for best results.

Recipe Notes

  • Use leftover, rotisserie or store bough pre cooked chicken to save on time.
  • Toast the bottom half of the rolls before adding the toppings to help keep them from getting soggy.
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning in place of fresh basil.
  • Use a mixture of mozzarella and provolone cheeses for an extra special taste.
