MY REVIEW

These chicken bundles were delicious! They were also easy to make. I will be making them again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 25, 2013

My family and I loved it. We used some leftover rotisserie chicken we had from the night before. I also added a can of mushrooms, and dried chopped onion to it. Instead of seasoned stuffing, I used Italian style bread crumbs that I had on hand. I only used enough to really coat the cream cheese mixture. VERY TASTY. I will definitely be making again.

My husband and I really like these so I make a double batch. I used minced onion instead of chives and crushed flavored croutons instead of the stuffing.

We made at church for a make'n'take thing we do and everyone loved them! I replaced the chives with green chilies and they were awesome! Used crushed curtons for the topping, we loved the crunch.
