Mix the diced chicken, bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, and reach dressing in a large bowl. Mix well to coat all of your ingredients.
Line your air fryer basket with parchment paper. On a flat surface, lay out your crescent dough. Using a sharp knife, cut your dough into six equal pieces. Add two to three tablespoons of filing to each crescent square.
Fold over the dough, using your fingers to press the dough together so it adheres to itself.
Set the crescent rolls into the air fryer basket, and set the temperature to 330 degrees F, air fryer setting for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove when fully cooked.
Chicken: You can use either store-bought rotisserie chicken and shred it or just a boneless, skinless chicken breast and cook it in the air fryer.
Cheese: Use any grated cheese you want, I used shredded cheddar, but you can use Monterey Cheese, Mexican Cheese, or even shredded mozzarella cheese.
Ranch Dressing: use homemade or store-bought Ranch Dressing. Either will work for this recipe.
Seasonings: While I did not add any herbs, you can add some garlic or onion powder, or even some hot sauce, to add some spice.
How To Make Ahead Of Time:
You can freeze the crescent bites for up to 24 hours and then air fry them! But, since they are so easy to make, I would make the filling, and then when you are ready to air fry them, roll out the dough. And then cook them per the directions below.
How To Store:
Cooks who bake crescent rolls frequently know that they can be a little fussy about storing. If not kept in the refrigerator, they can quickly become dry and crumbly. However, you can keep them fresh for longer and have fluffy, delicious crescent rolls every time with a few tips!
After making these Air Fryer Crack Chicken Crescent Bites let them cool to room temperature and then place them into an airtight container. They will last for 2 to 3 days. You can either reheat in the microwave or the air fryer. Heat until warmed through.
