This oh-so-amazing chicken bundles recipe is one of our absolute family favorites.
Not only does this simple dinner come together fast (especially if you have cooked chicken already on hand), it's full of creamy goodness with a flaky, buttery crust that can only be attributed to the one and only Pillsbury!
I know prepackaged dough doesn't necessarily make this recipe the cheapest, but dinner prep is much less of a hassle and way more manageable with a shortcut or two. I don't always have time to make dough during our already busy schedules. Not ideal, but the truth nevertheless!
So embrace the shortcuts (for more ideas on how to cook with crescent roll dough, check out this list!) and watch your family devour these chicken bundles full of creamy flavor. You can make these soft pillows regular-sized or cut them in half for mini appetizers or little hands.
Everyone I've made these for has absolutely adored them!
How to Make Chicken Bundles:
Step 1: Cook chicken. Do this the day before (or use rotisserie chicken) to speed up prep time. Psst… here's how to shred cooked chicken in less than a minute!
Step 2: In a small bowl, beat softened cream cheese, butter, milk, salt, and pepper until smooth.
Step 3: Stir in chicken, and mix well until all pieces are thoroughly coated with the creamy “sauce.”
Step 4: Unroll crescent dough on an ungreased baking sheet, and press seams together of two triangles to form a rectangular shape.
Step 5: Spoon about 1/2 cup chicken mixture onto one side of each rectangle. Bring the other side over to cover chicken mixture and pinch to seal. Press edges with a fork to make it pretty!
Step 6: Bake chicken bundles at 350 degrees F about 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown.Print
