Easy Chicken Alfredo Roll Ups

Some things I make on the blog that I really hope everyone tries. This is one of those recipes. I have already made it twice in one week. And because I loved it so much I invited my family over for Sunday dinner. They had to experience how amazing this meal was, and they could not get enough. This will turn your ordinary roll ups upside down. It is different, creamy, decadent and full of flavor!

It all started with these Alfredo Roll Ups. An early recipe on the blog that I’ve been tweaking over the years and have now perfected. The homemade alfredo sauce is absolutely perfect,  I promise you won’t find a better one out there. Then I added the bacon, because bacon makes everything better. It was a simple addition that turned these into divine individually portioned bites of heaven. This is a dish the whole family will love! I bet you will make them again and again!

Ingredients for Chicken Roll Ups

All of these ingredients can be easily found at the grocery store. I used a rotisserie chicken or use chicken from this incredible whole chicken in the instant pot recipe. So good!

  • Lasagna Noodles: Precooked but just to al dente. Drain and rinse your noodles in cold water and separate to avoid sticking together.
  • Chicken: Cooked and shredded. Rotisserie chicken works well here.
  • Bacon: Cooked and crumbled, use the air fryer for a quick way to cook your bacon.
  • Mozzarella Cheese: Grated, but shred your own to avoid cheese that has anti caking agents on it.

Garlic Alfredo Sauce Ingredients 

  • Butter: Adds a bit of salt and tons of flavor.
  • Heavy whipping Cream: Creates a creamy decadent sauce.
  • Cream Cheese: Not only adds flavor but helps to thicken it as well.
  • Garlic: Freshly minced garlic works best.
  • Garlic Powder: This will add more flavor without the chunks.
  • Italian seasoning: A great seasoning with all the best herbs. Make your own here.
  • Salt and Pepper: Add to taste
  • Parmesan Cheese: Grated fresh will give you the best flavor.

How to Make Chicken Lasagna Roll Ups

This may seem hard, but it is not! It is actually quite simple. My kids love to help me roll the noodles up, they also love to eat the filling.

  1. Prep: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 inch pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Cook: In a large pot cook the lasagna noodles according to the package directions until al dente. Drain and rinse the noodles with cold water and lay them on a paper towel to remove excess water.
  3. Alfredo: In medium saucepan add butter, heavy whipping cream and cream cheese. Cook over medium heat and whisk until melted.
  4. Season: Add the minced garlic, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Continue to whisk until smooth.
  5. Cheese: Add the grated parmesan cheese. Bring to a simmer and continue to cook for about 3-5 minutes or until it starts to thicken.
  6. Bottom of Pan: Line the bottom of the 9×13 pan with 1 cup of the alfredo sauce.
  7. Layer Noodles: Spread 2 Tablespoons of the alfredo sauce over each noodle. Take 1/8th of the shredded chicken and bacon and spread evenly over each noodle and top with about 3 tablespoons shredded cheese.
  8. Roll it: Carefully roll up each lasagna noodle and place seam side down in your 9×13 prepared pan. Repeat.
  9. Cover: Once they are all in the pan, pour the remaining alfredo sauce over the top and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  10. Bake it: Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes until heated through and cheese is bubbly.

Tips for the Best Chicken Alfredo Roll Ups

These roll ups are absolutely divine. They are fun and different and are going to be a family favorite for sure.

  • Noodles: Make sure you cook your noodles al dente. You want them to soft and pliable but firm enough to roll. I do not recommend using no boil noodles. They just do not work with this recipe.
  • Chicken: This is a great recipe to use up extra chicken you may have from another dinner. I like to cook thighs and breasts in the air fryer to use for recipes. They both would be amazing in this recipe.
  • Cheese: Mozzarella is a classic cheese for this lasagna dish, be sure to grate your own. It will melt easier and more evenly. Other cheese you could use is provolone or gouda.
  • Alfredo Sauce: If you want a lighter alfredo you can use half and half, it will still you all the flavor and creaminess. Also try subbing out the parmesan for romano, asiago or pecorino romano.
  • Cover while cooking: If you are worried about the noodles exposed edges becoming crunchy, cover the dish with foil before placing it in the oven. Everything is already cooked so you essentially you are heating the insides. Uncover the roll ups the last 5-10 minutes to brown the cheese.

Double it and Freeze!

One of the best things about this meal is that it is so easy to prep ahead of time and or freeze for another day. Since I am making one batch of these roll ups, I might as well make two. It is just as easy and i can freeze one to have later or to give away. It just makes sense.

  • Make ahead:  Make these chicken bacon alfredo roll ups up to a day ahead and place in the fridge tightly covered. When ready to bake, remove from fridge half hour before cooking. Bake for regular time and uncover the last 5-10 minutes.
  • Freeze: To freeze, make the chicken bacon roll ups and place in the pan. Tightly cover with plastic wrap and then with foil. Freeze for up to 2 months. Remove from freezer and let thaw in the fridge. Bake as directed. Note: Dairy does not freeze well so you might notice a bit of separation in the sauce. It will not change the flavor, just the look.  It is totally normal and still good to eat.
  • Leftovers: Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat in the microwave.

  1. Yum! Yum! Yum! I even had my parents over and they loved it! My dad kept asking me what it was called and where I found it so we can make sure to have it again!
    Thanks!!

    1. I am SO happy that you guys loved it as much as we did!! I had to have my family over with this one too because it is so good! XO

  2. Making this today! Have you ever tried to freeze the leftovers? I’m always looking for things I can freeze for work lunches 🙂

  3. These look so yummy…can you use the oven ready noodles? I have a whole box in my pantry and didn’t know if those work work?

  4. Pretty dang good. Here are the changes I made: half and half instead of whipping cream, turkey bacon instead of regular bacon, and I added sautéed cremini mushrooms and frozen spinach to the sauce. It was really good. The only problem I had had nothing to do with recipe but the rotisserie chicken I bought to make. The chicken was mushy. The next time (and there will be a next time), I’ll grilled the chicken instead. Thanks for the recipe.

  5. Excellent recipe! My family all loved it. I added chopped steamed broccoli just to add some healthy to the calories! Thanks for another wonderful recipe.

  6. This is scrumptious! I used an 11 x 7 pan, which worked great. Also, I combined the bacon, chicken, and 1 cup sauce before spreading them on the noodles. I highly recommend this recipe. Thank you!

  7. Couldn’t resist not typing this off 🙂
    bought ingredients — gonna be our meal for my “runner” on Friday night — gotta have pasta before races — just hope it makes him run FAST on Saturday morn — then next Saturday morn, it’s the ½ Marathon in our area.

    1. Oh my goodness… ONE BITE and they all said “it’s a KEEPER.”
      Thanks for this wonderful recipe — got 3rd in his age group. 🙂

  8. You did say that ….This was one of the best meals that I will make…and you were so right! My mouth is still watering about how delicious this is. I am actually going to leave out the bacon (heaven forbid) and cut up some pieces of asparagus or broccoli next time. Thank you soooo much for sharing this

  9. After reading these comments, I’m excited to make this for my guys. I have no doubt they will enjoy it. I will be adding frozen spinach to this as well!

  10. This recipe is delicious! At first I thought the alfredo sauce was going to be too “garlicky,” it wasn’t. All the flavors blend well with the chicken. I will definitely make this again. Thanks!

    1. I am thinking you can, just add the chicken, bacon and Parmesan cheese on the inside of the roll. And you will probably have to make the sauce the night of because I’m not sure that would freeze and defrost well

  11. I made this for my family and it was a hit! The alfredo sauce was excellent. I’m hungry for it again just thinking about it.

    1. What’s with the Italian Seasoning. Don’t want to give away your secret recipe or do you Really use the bottled spice. It’s In so many of your recipes it makes one wonder. Looking at them they don’t all contain the same amounts or even the same ingredients depending upon brand.

  12. This recipe delivers! I made it exactly as the recipe stated and it was fail proof! Absolutely delicious! I will be making this every time company comes over! For me, it was not something I could whip up quickly, it involved a lot of prep work but it was totally worth it! This has become one of my favorite recipes!

  13. Just made this for Valentine’s dinner tonight, this was incredible! I give this 10 stars out of 5! Whole family loves it! I did make a second batch of Alfredo sauce after it baked as it seemed dry.

  14. This recipe was delicious but VERY oily. I’m not sure why, I followed it as written. *sigh*. It’s a keeper if I can get rid of all the oil.

  15. Do you think you could make this as a full lasagna, instead of rolled up, do layers as in regular lasagna but maybe in a smaller pan? It seems like it would be a little easier, especially if you did use the no boil noodles. Just wondering what your thoughts were.

  16. This recipe was awesome. My family enjoyed this for Sunday supper. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

  17. I made this last night. It was delicious. I added some scallions, steamed asparagus and sundried tomatoes to the chicken. I also combined the chicken with the bacon, the add-ins, the cheese and some sauce to hold it together. This made it very easy to spread on the lasagna noodle. I will be making this again as the family really liked it. I will be looking to make it a little more healthy by using milk and 1/2 and 1/2 and less butter and see how it tastes. I did pour in about a 1/4 to 1/3 cup pinot grigio and mixed it into the sauce. YUM

  18. Making it right now. My husband is excited. Lets see if it passes my son who doesn’t like pasta. He is ok with lasagna, so I am hoping him and his girlfriend will like dinner. Serving with some fresh broccoli and homemade rolls.

  19. This is a super recipe. We loved it. We will use the Alfredo sauce recipe for anything we make involving alfredo sauce in the future. Thanks so much for sharing. Very delicious!

  20. Loved this recipe. I added 1 more noodle and layered it like lasagna instead of roll-ups and it’s now a favorite here. Thanks for sharing!

  21. Making this tonight, almost ready to go in the oven! I hope it is a success because man does it ever look good! Anything chicken Alfredo is a fav for my boys! Thanks for the recipe, next time I may even share with my mother 😉

  22. I just made this, but with some adjustments, and we loved it! I eat a ketogenic diet, so I can’t do pasta. Instead, I doubled the chicken and added a ton of broccoli and mixed it all together before baking. It turned out great and will definitely be a favorite. I made a few other adjustments (less butter) and I have some ideas for future attempts. I think gorgonzola rather than parmesean in the sauce would be amazing. Maybe some sun dried tomatoes? Thanks for the recipe!

    Oh, and a tip to future makers, add the shredded parm in a little at a time. I dumped it all in at once and it took forever for the giant blob of melting cheese to mix into the sauce. I think doing it a little at a time would have been a lot faster. 🙂

  23. These are delicious!! Making this recipe for the 5th time tonight, the whole family loves it. This is my go-to dinner when we have people over, always a hit! And easy to make ahead of time!

  24. I just made these and looking forward to them baking in the oven. I added the bacon and tarragon to the Alfredo Sauce. I tasted it. OMG. Yummy. Looking forward to the 1st bite. Made Homemade Crusted Garlic Bread to go with this. Thank you for a wonderful recipe….

  25. No boil pasta will work. You just need to soak the sheets in boiling water ( I usea 9×13 pan). Takes about 5-7 minutes to soften them, lay them out to dry as you would reg lasagna noodles. I use a butter knife after a few minutes into the soak to gently separate the sheets so they dont stick tigether.

  26. Planning on making this tonight for dinner. But I have one question, can I use fettuccine instead of lasagna noodles (don’t feel like running to the store)? I plan on using chicken and bacon in my sauce.

  27. I made this recipe for supper tonight and it was absolutely delicious and a huge hit with my husband and the kids. My only critique is that the prep time stated in the recipe is way off…it’s more like an hour with boiling water & cooking the lasagna noodles, cooking the bacon, then crumbling it, & cooking the chicken, then shredding it. All before assembly plus 30 minutes oven time. I understand I could have used rotisserie chicken, precooked bacon, etc however, it probably wouldn’t be as delicious.

  28. Do you use shredded Parmesan cheese or grated ( like the Kraft stuff in a green container?), or does it matter? Thanks!

    1. Either would work! I recommend the grated cheese from the green container. Sometimes the bagged cheese has too much flour coating the cheese and has less flavor. Hope that helps!

      Your Recipe Critic,
      Alyssa

  29. Absolutely fantastic recipe. Had my parents over for dinner and a movie, and they could not stop raving. Now it’s being requested for our Father’s Day menu! Thanks for sharing, Alyssa!

    1. AWE!! That is so AWESOME!! I am so happy for you! Way to go! I am glad it was a huge hit and what a fun night to be with your parents!! Thanks for sharing! XO

  30. I have made this recipe once bwfore. This time going to so it a bit differant by adding broccoli and sgrimp. My family went crazy over this recipe so now im making it for my fsther thats in town from Az. I will post how it comes out and take some pics

  31. Came out wonderful. I made this after work and it took a lot more prep time than I thought. The sauce is just incredible. Will def make again but on a weekend when I have more time.

  32. This is definitely worth making!! My family loved it. Kids comments were: Cheesey deliciousness, mom you have any of the yummy cheesy stuff you made for supper, and mom that stuff you made the other night is now my favorite meal you make. I’m now going to the grocery store to stock up on supplies to make multe batches of the alfreso sauce so it is easier to put the meal together. I’m going to see how the sauce freezes. I threw some broccoli on the top and sides of the baking dish so I didntfeel so guilty when I fed them this dish lol.

  33. I’m thinking of trying this with tortillas, since my husband won’t eat Lasagna noodles. Bet it would be good as well! He will eat spaghetti noodles, so maybe I could make chicken, bacon spaghetti with your sauce on it

  34. This dish was really good. Easy to prepare and, well, it was just perfect. I followed the recipe exactly as written. Good stuff, thank you.

  35. Hello, I’m excited to try this recipe out, however I have a question. The ingredients call for Garlic Alfredo Sauce, and yet in the directions you also make a Sauce. There is no distinction in the directions on when to use which sauce. Can you clear this up for me? I really dont want to mess up when i try this.
    Thanks

  36. Hello Alyssa, i have shared your website with my sister in laws and friends because everything looks delicious…
    I made the alfredo rollups and switched it up..Added spinach on top for color and made some with spicy sausage.. your alfredo recipe is delicious..
    i look forward to trying more recipes…Regards Annmarie

  37. I made I.T everything as the recipe said: absolutely amazing & delicious my boyfriend loved ky & now i can make Alfredo sauce from scratch whenever i need very simple. Only thing i did diff was i got chicken cutlets and seasoned w garlic oil n herbs early in the day n then cooked n shredded the chicken myself a bit more time consuming but if you have the time it’s worth I.T taste even better but rotisserie still a good option ! I love all the recipes on here can’t wait to try another one !
