Rhodes Rolls

Rhodes Rolls

Hello Smart School House readers, I am Jen and I blog at Craft-O-Maniac. I am thrilled to be sharing my first ever contributor post here on Smart School House. Today I will be sharing this new recipe I tried and winged the other night and man did it turn out. It is so yummy, and the best part my kids loved it, and wanted more. SCORE!

So what am I sharing with you? These delicious “Rhodes Rolls Creamy Chicken Filled Bundles”. This recipe happened when my hubby had taken out some rolls to un-thaw and rise all day. After they had doubled in size and were ready to bake, I said to him “What are you doing with those rolls?”. He had no clue and no main dish was planned either, HA! the good ole’ hubs. Well that is when it hit me? I thought I would roll them out and fill them up with some kind of chicken mixture, seal them up, and bake them. So here is what I came up with.

Yield: 16

Serving Size: 6-8


  • 16 un-thawed and risen Rhodes Rolls
  • 2 un-thawed large chicken breasts
  • For the Filling
  • 1 brick of cream cheese
  • 1 can of cream of chicken soup
  • 1 tbsp of basil
  • 2 tsp of garlic salt
  • 2 tsp of paprika
  • salt and pepper


  1. Start by greasing your rolling pin and counter with some butter or pam spray.
  2. One by one roll out your rolls until they are about 5 x 5 or 6 x 6 inches in diameter.
  3. Place them in a sprayed cupcake tray. If you aren’t using a cupcake tray, these work great on a cookie sheet as well.
  4. Once they are all rolled out and placed in the cupcake tins set them aside.
  5. Take your filling and place everything in a bowl adding your seasonings last.
  6. Mix it all with a hand mixer, set aside.
  7. Cut up your un-thawed chicken into small little squares, and add them to your filing mix.
  8. Spoon it all together really well.
  9. Now you are ready to fill up your Rhodes Rolls bundles.
  10. Take a spoon and spoon out a small to medium amount of filling and place it in the center of your bundles.
  11. Then gather up all the sides of the rolls pinching them together. Do this with all your bundles.
  12. I did an egg wash to the top of them: For the egg wash take 2 cracked eggs and a splash of water, whisk it together and with a cooking brush, brush the tops of your chicken filled bundles.
  13. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

Like I said above, they were a hit and will definitely be filled away in our recipe box.


  1. by “un-thawed”, do you mean still frozen? or do you mean to thaw the frozen chicken and rolls? this sounds really good, just need the clarification. thanks.

  2. Did you mean “thawed” chicken and rolls? Not frozen right.

  3. rockergirl says:

    is it already cooked chicken you are using ?

  4. Please, just to clarify. The chicken is raw before you mix it together. Does it cook thoroughly in the 20 min in the oven?

    • Yes the chicken is raw when you fill the rolls and it does cook at the temp. I described and in 20 minutes. You are more then welcome to check the inside of one if perhaps it needs more time. Sometimes our temp. were we live and our ovens make the cook time a bit different. Thanks, Jen-COM
