Chicken, ranch, and bacon stromboli

Sometimes I wish I wasΒ  Betty Crocker and the Pioneer Woman, all rolled into one amazing cook, who baked all her own bread, made healthy meals every day, and took killer photos to document.

But in reality, some days I’m just trying to come up with a quick, easy meal, that I need for my famished crew πŸ™‚

Stromboli is something I can make, and have no complaints. But this is the 1st time I have tried this recipe. And in fact, its not a recipe, but some thrown together ingredients.

I worked very hard at making the dough πŸ˜‰ I went to the store, and bought frozen bread dough. I know, nothing to be proud of.Β I rolled it out, snapping quick photos as I went, under poor lighting conditions. sorry if you came to see pretty photos πŸ™‚ Perhaps another time!Next, I added Ranch dressing, spread it down the middle, added crumbled, cooked bacon, and mozzarella cheese.

After that, I added the chicken. You could cook your chicken, and use that. You could use rotisserie chicken. Or, you could do like I did, and get canned chicken at the store. Yes, I should can my own chicken, and maybe I will eventually do all I set out to do with canning and freezing πŸ˜‰ But this works for me, as I am all about quick and easy πŸ™‚You could use whatever cheeses you like. I added a little cheddar cheese as well.I struggle with rolling the dough out evenly too πŸ™‚ So for the last step, pull dough together, making sure there are no holes. Flip over, and add butter, seasoning, etc. to the top. And its ready to bake!

I actually just used butter on the top of my chicken Stromboli. I also made a ham, cheese, and salami version, and this is how that one looked, right before baking.And then, what is really nice, is when you have a daughter taking home economics class at school, and she brings home a salad πŸ™‚ And that’s a wrap!
