"I haven't made this you cook the chicken first or put it in raw?"

"We loved this recipe! As with some of the others, I changed the filling a bit. I had some spinach dip in the fridge, so for the filling, I stirred some spinach dip into cream cheese. The crunch from the waterchestnuts in the spinach dip really gave the bundles a great texture, which was a hit with my friends. This recipe is a definite keeper that is so easy to change up, depending on what you have in your fridge."

"question? are chicken tenderloins the same as maybe cut up breasts? and can you use crescent rolls instead of puff pastry? and who makes the spinach and artichoke cream cheese spread?"

"I made this recipe tonight using 2 chicken tenders per bundle and garden vegetable reduced fat cream cheese. My husband and I both agree that it's a "make again!" Next time I may try a different kind of cream cheese (chive and onion) or marinated chicken breast tenders."

"Just a question: do you cook the chicken beforehand or bake it in the pastry?"
