Lite Eats: Easy Chicken Wing Roll-Up
We've all been there: you just got home from work or from running the kids to and from activities, and then you hear it. The question: "What's for dinner?" You realize that you haven't had a minute to even think about dinner.
Before you pick up the phone and order a pizza (not that there's anything wrong with that), think about making a Chicken Wing Roll-Up. This is a super easy recipe that is ready quickly. Using ready-made pizza dough and a rotisserie chicken to save even more time, you'll have this delicious meal ready in no time. Add a little blue cheese and celery, and you're done!
Chicken Wing Roll-Up
2-3 cups of chicken, shredded or chopped bite-sized chunks (you can quickly cook about 1 lb of chicken breast, or just shred the meat off of a rotisserie chicken)
1/2 package of cream cheese, softened (about 4 oz.)
1/3 cup chicken wing sauce (I use Frank's Mild, but choose the heat level you prefer. You can add more sauce, depending on preference and amount of chicken)
1 cup shredded cheese (I use mozzarella, but use whatever you prefer)
1 can Pillsbury pizza dough
Preheat the oven to 375. Mix all the ingredients, except the dough, in a large bowl. Roll out the dough onto a non-stick cookie sheet or a pizza stone. Spread the chicken mixture onto the dough, leaving about a 3/4" border around the edges.
Carefully, beginning at on long end (I use rectangular dough), roll the dough into a loaf shape. Pinch the ends closed and make sure the long edge on the bottom of the roll. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the loaf is golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes. Cut into slices and serve.
This also makes great leftovers, so if you're feeling particularly motivated, double the recipe and make two.
