    Place a scant 1/4 cup chicken mixture in the center of each square.

More About This Recipe

  • 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.These are a great way to use up leftover chicken. Make them super fast by using a rotisserie chicken and precooked bacon.Now that I have my "little bundle," these Chicken-Bacon Bundles are the perfect go-to meal for a crazy day!
