Creamy Chicken Bundles

Canned crescent roll dough and pre-cooked meat are all you need to make these creamy chicken bundles on a busy weeknight!

This oh-so-amazing chicken recipe is one of our absolute family favorites.

It not only comes together super 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. {Or at least the generic alternative when it’s not on sale, of course!}

I know prepackaged dough doesn’t necessarily make this recipe the cheapest, but dinner prep is certainly much less of a hassle, and way more manageable. I don’t always have time to make dough during our already busy schedules, and honestly, if I had to, we’d probably be eating frozen bagels and cereal again for dinner. Not ideal, but the truth nevertheless!

So embrace the shortcuts and watch your family devour these soft pillows of creamy flavor. You can make them regular-sized, or cut them in half for mini appetizers or little hands. Everyone I’ve made these for have absolutely adored them!

The Process

Step 1: In a small bowl, beat softened cream cheese, butter, milk, salt, and pepper until smooth.

    Kayla- Hi! this is a favorite of my family also! I ‘tweaked’ the recipe just a bit and add a little garlic salt and a tablespoon of ranch dressing to the cram cheese mixture. ( I’ve also used the low fat neufchatel cream cheese and fat free ranch wrapped in reduced fat crescent rolls for a lower calorie version!) My kids really like when I add a few garlic croutons on top! I like the idea of making them smaller and serving for an appetizer!

    I added some salsa and taco mix in to make it like a southwest flavor, family loved it, served with Spanish rice :)

    This is a family favorite also. We call them chicken squares! I mix it up and use the different kinds of cream cheese available or add frozen peas or corn.

      I never thought about experimenting with different cream cheeses before, but you’re right, there are a ton of fun flavors to try!

    I made these tonight and both my husband and I loved them! Very good, definitely going to be a new regular for us. I did add some fresh chives but I don’t think I added enough because I couldn’t even taste them. But…even without them these were great. Thanks for the recipe!

    Also, do you think these would freeze well? They seem like they’d make a nice snack, kind of like healthier hot pockets. If so, would you freeze them before cooking and then just cook the same time or slightly longer?

    • Kalyn Brooke says

      When I experimented with these, I froze them before cooking and it was not a good idea! The dough is very sticky and I ended up cooking it as one big blob because they kept ripping apart when I tried to separate them. I haven’t attempted to freeze the cooked ones yet – please let me know if you try it and if it works!
