Chicken Squares

For Jon's birthday last week we decided to celebrate in style... with his favorite meal. 
Chicken Squares.

Simple, Satisfying, and Super Delish.

Jon's Mom (hi patty!) always made these for him, and they are still his favorite. But this year I put a bit of a healthier twist on them. Still good, but better for you!

To start you'll need to my no-rise pizza dough recipe.

Then for the innards you'll need...

Chicken Squares (makes six)
-3 smallish chicken breasts
- Garlic Powder (to taste)
-Broccoli (11/2 heads)
- 2T Milk
- 6 oz. Cream Cheese
- Salt and Peppa (to taste)


Cook the chicken in the microwave and dice up/shred up into smaller pieces. SAVE the chicken juice.

Mix together the cream cheese, milk, chicken juice, Garlic, and salt n' peppa... it'll make ya wanna' shoop (ok am i the only one that knows that song??)

Then add the chicken into the mix!

Seperate the dough into 6 little buns and then spread 'em out into a square shape ( but don't go to thin otherwise it'll rip and your innards will be spilling out... trust me, I learned the hard way.)

Place your innards in and place the broccoli on top!

Bring the sides up and pinch it together to make a little

Yes... the name is all coming together now.

When they're all done put 'em in the oven for 30 min at 350.

Serve with your husbands other favorite dish... the classy velveeta mac n' cheese

Polish it off with some birthday cupcakes (or 2) and you're good to go!

Now, these squares didn't turn out as creamy as I would've liked, so maybe a bit more cream cheese might've worked? I also think the laughing cow cheese would make a great replacement...I can't wait to experiment when we get home!
