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. Hi there! I would maybe put the cooking spray in the ingredients list. Almost didn’t catch it in the instructions. Going to be trying this tonight, thank you for sharing!

  2. I have been craving chicken Alfred for a few weeks now and came across your recipe. It was delicious. I did have to switch it up a bit because I do t eat much and my grandson wouldn’t be able to eat a whole rollup either. I used rotini noodles and made it into a casserole. Also my mozzarella went bad on me so no topping. Other than that. I followed your recipe and we LOVED it. I will be making it again.

  3. Why does this recipe call for a bottle of garlic Alfredo sauce when you’re actually making it homemade?

    1. You are making it homemade. It is a little confusing with the Alfredo Sauce since it is in a bullet form. The ingredients for the sauce is underneath the bullet for that. I apologize for the confusion! Hope you enjoy! XOXO
      Garlic Alfredo Sauce:
      1/2 cup butter
      1 pint heavy whipping cream (2 cups)
      4 ounces cream cheese
      1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
      1 teaspoon garlic powder
      1 teaspoon italian seasoning
      1/4 teaspoon salt
      1/4 teaspoon pepper
      1 cup grated parmesan cheese

  4. I am so anxious to try this recipe tonight! The only thing is the sauce…..where is the recipe for it? I looked on your site and there is alfredo sauce but not garlic alfredo sauce. Oh please help me so Ican try this out. Yum yum!

    1. The Garlic Alfredo Sauce is listed in the ingredients. Hope this helps! XOXO
      Garlic Alfredo Sauce:
      1/2 cup butter
      1 pint heavy whipping cream (2 cups)
      4 ounces cream cheese
      1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
      1 teaspoon garlic powder
      1 teaspoon italian seasoning
      1/4 teaspoon salt
      1/4 teaspoon pepper
      1 cup grated parmesan cheese

      1. So hello there,
        I just bought this beautiful mixture of mushrooms and also spinach and creamy ricotta cheese ravioli. Also an Italian sausage with mascarpone and Parmesan cheese raviolis. Instead of buying store Alfredo sauce, I wanted to try this recipe for homemade Alfredo sauce.

  5. Hi i made this and it’s really good! I have a question. When i melted the stick of bubutter it separated. The yellow and white and i got a puddle of of yellowness. I continued doing everything and it tasted really good but then i put in the over and you could see some of the yellowness in the sauce. What do you think happen?

    1. OH no, I am so sorry! I am not sure what happened to the butter and why it changed colors like it did. Butter will separate into three layers when completely melted but stirring it together will help that. It should have been more of a creamy white color. I am sorry the color was altered for you. I am glad that it tasted so good though! XOXO

  6. Hi Alyssa! Just pre-made them for a small dinner party tomorrow night! Rolled them up and have not yet poured the remaining sauce on top. Put plastic wrap tightly on top and put them in the fridge until I can bake them tomorrow night! I’ll pour the sauce and cheese on top before putting them in the oven. I hope this was the right way to do this. I was afraid to put the sauce on now while they are in the fridge overnight. Any suggestions?? I can’t wait to taste them! The Alfredo sauce is out of this world!!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!!

    1. That sounds great! I am so glad that it is all coming together! Way to go! It sounds like you are making them perfectly for how you are doing it. I think the sauce will be fine on it beforehand otherwise when you go to make them it will be great! Enjoy! XOXO

    1. I have found the best way to get nutritional info on all of the recipes is through MyFitnessPal.com. You just type in the recipe and it tells you! Skinnytaste.com is also a great resource for healthy and delicious meals and provides nutritional info. Hope this helps! XOXO

  7. This dish has such incredible flavor and the alfredo sauce truly is the BEST ever! I have 3 boys and this is now at the top of their favorites 🙂

  8. 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 !

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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!
