Pesto Cheese and Chicken Bundles

Posted by moderndaygourmet on August 31, 2007

I made these once for a baby shower and the husband of the hostess wandered in while I was making them and said, “Hey, those look like little dough diapers.”  How appropriate!  LOL.

1 (8-oz.) can Pillsbury® Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
1/3 cup light cream cheese with roasted garlic (from 8-oz. tub)
1/4 cup purchased pesto
1 tablespoon jalapeño or hot pepper jelly
1/2 cup Progresso® Italian Style Bread Crumbs
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
3 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
1 to 2 tablespoons water

1 . Heat oven to 375°F. Separate dough into 4 rectangles. Firmly press perforations to seal. Cut each rectangle in half crosswise to make 8 pieces; press each to form 4-inch square.
2 . In medium bowl, combine cream cheese, pesto, jelly and 2 tablespoons of the bread crumbs; mix well. Stir in chicken and cheese.
3 . Place 1/4 cup chicken mixture in center of each square. Bring 4 corners of each square up over filling; twist firmly to seal. Brush top and bottom of each bundle with water; coat with remaining bread crumbs. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
4 . Bake at 375°F. for 14 to 22 minutes or until deep golden brown. Serve warm.
