Broccoli Chicken Rolls


Still time to link up to Saturday's Party!  See post HERE.

 In an (unsuccessful) attempt to get K-girl to like broccoli again, I made these rolls.  Imagine a cinnamon roll.  Only instead of cinnamon and sugar rolled up inside, it has broccoli, chicken, and cheese.  And instead of icing, more cheese.

That's this recipe in a nutshell. 

I saw a version of this recipe that used pepperoni and pizza sauce--Pizza Rolls.  But I had no pepperoni, so I gave these a shot.  They were good, and would make a nice lunch for a little tot.

 The price for these is pretty reasonable as well.

Posted at:
  • 1 pkg frozen broccoli (about $1.50)
  • 1 cup shredded chicken (about 1 breast--I used leftover rotisserie chicken, about $1.50)
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (about $2)
  • 1 pkg pizza dough (about $2)
Roll out the pizza dough into a rectangle.  Mix together the defrosted broccoli, chicken, and most of the cheese.  Spread out on the dough.  Roll up and seal the edges.  Cut into 1-1 1/2 inch slices and place each roll in a greased muffin tin.  Sprinkle the top of each roll with cheese.  Bake at 350degs for about 20 minutes, or until they look done. :)

These are also freezable.  Just throw the leftovers in the freezer!  When you're reheating these, it's best to use the oven.  Using the microwave causes some sogginess issues that can make this rather unappetizing.



I love your comments!
