Even with four kids, work, and a busy house, I can wrap up these bundles in under 15 minutes for a quick, home-baked snack or light meal.
I recently had a baby girl, and since then things in my house have been a bit chaotic to say it mildly.My New Year’s resolution was to get more organized and now with four kids, I’ve found that organization is a necessity to maintain my sanity. Part of being organized is having a meal plan so dinner actually happens before 9:00 at night. We always have dinner as a family, and I need super quick meals that don’t have much prep at all.
These Chicken-Bacon Bundles
literally came together in under fifteen minutes. I am not a short order cook so if my kids don’t like what I’m serving for dinner, tough luck…that’s what you’re eating. But no whining here – they loved the cheesy chicken and bacon bundles! My kids liked dipping them in ranch, but they are great all by themselves too.
Here’s the filling for our little bundles – chicken, bacon, and cheese.
These are a great way to use up leftover chicken. Make them super fast by using a rotisserie chicken and precooked bacon.
We’re using buttery crescent dough here to make our bundles. Just make squares out of the dough by pressing together the perforations and then cutting them in half.
Generously add some filling and bring up the four corners of the dough to make your bundles. No need to make sure it’s completely closed – I like seeing the cheesy filling peeking out.
See how easy that was! And just after a little time browning in the oven you have cheesy, chicken and bacon bundles.
Now that I have my "little bundle," these Chicken-Bacon Bundles are the perfect go-to meal for a crazy day!
