Chicken Swiss Bundles

Life has gotten crazy, so I haven't been doing any creative cooking lately. I've been sticking to quick and easy; such as breakfast for dinner, bean burritos, and ordering take-out. I think this is the only new recipe I've tried within the past couple of weeks, and luckily, it was really tasty and pretty easy to put together. I didn't take a photo, but the website that originally posted this meal has detailed photos already (just click on the link if you're curious on how it looks). I think we had salad with these bundles, and I seem to remember everyone in my family really gobbling up our dinner.

Chicken Swiss Bundles
From: Pearls, Handcuffs, and Happy Hour

1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 1/2 tsp. butter
1 garlic clove, minced
2 chicken breasts, cooked & cubed
1/2 cup sweet roasted red pepper, chopped
1 tbsp. honey mustard salad dressing
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese (I used sliced cheese, in pieces)
12 frozen bread dough dinner rolls, thawed
2 tbsp. butter, melted

Thaw rolls and press each roll into a 5 inch circle on a greased baking sheet. In a large skillet, saute onion & mushrooms in 1 1/2 tsp. of butter until tender. Then toss in the garlic and saute for a minute longer. Add chicken, peppers, mustard, and dry seasonings. Stir to mix well and heat through. Remove from heat and stir in the cheese. Place the chicken mix in the center of the dough circles. (No exact measurement for this, but not TOO much. Make sure you leave room around the edges!!!) Take the remaining dough circles, place on top of the chicken mix, and press the edges with a fork to seal. Then brush the tops of each bundle with melted butter. Bake at 350 for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown.
