Kid-Friendly Chicken Bites

2 c. cooked chicken, chopped
1 c. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 garlic clove, pressed
½ c. mayonnaise
¼ tsp. salt
Frozen bread dough, thawed, but not risen

TO FREEZE: Combine chicken with other ingredients (except bread dough) in a bowl. Roll out bread dough to a 9”x13” rectangle. Cut into smaller squares. Spoon filling onto one side of each square, leaving a border of dough on three sides. Fold over bare side of dough into a triangle and pinch ends together. Fold points of triangle into center to make a roundish shape. Freeze on cookie sheet. Place frozen individual bites into 1 gallon freezer bag and lay flat.

TO COOK: Thaw overnight in refrigerator. Place bites on greased cookie sheet. Loosely cover with plastic wrap to prevent drying. Allow to rise, but not double. Cook 15 - 20 minutes in a 350° oven until golden.

OPTION #2 - Bake the bites then freeze. I like this option best because I can have an "instant" dinner or snack
