Chicken Bites

These were meant to be "buffalo" chicken bites, but both Ray and I hate buffalo sauce (I did try it that way, still don't like it). I like it much better with BBQ sauce or teriyaki.  I think I will do buffalo at times, though, because others will like it and I am planning these for game night.
 
Modified from Simple & Delicious
 
2 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp ranch salad dressing mix
1 1/4 cups finely chopped cooked chicken
1 1/4 cups (5 oz) shredded cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 cup sauce (Buffalo wing sauce, teriyaki sauce or BBQ sauce)
1 tube (13.8 oz) refrigerated pizza crust
2 tbsp. butter, melted
 
Preheat oven to 400.  In a small bowl, combine Parmesan cheese and 1 tsp. dressing mix.  In a large bowl, mix chicken, chees and sauce.  On a lightly floured surface, unroll pizza crust and pat into a 14 by 12 inch rectangle.  Cut into 24 squares. 
 
Place 1 rounded tbsp. chicken mixture on the center of the each square.  Pull corners together to the enclose filling pinch to seal. Place on grated baking sheets, seam side down.  Brush tops with butter; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese mixture. 
 
Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve with blue cheese dressing if you want. 
 
You can also use wonton shells and bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes, flipping once halfway through the cooking.  
 
Makes 24 bites.
