Cream Cheese Chicken Bundles {S} (low carb, low sugar)

Long ago, before I became a Trim Healthy Mama I made a dish called….Chicken Baseballs.  I know, I know it an odd name for a dish, but that’s what it was.  Today I was thinking about that yummy recipe realizing that I could make it THM friendly.  I really think most recipes can be made or revamped to work for the plan so they are healthy for you and slimming.  I figured I’d give it a better name  while I was at it.  The old breading was crescent rolls so they really no longer look like a baseball! 🙂

Cream Cheese Chicken Bundles (S)If you are tired of chicken dishes, use another meat!  You could use cooked ground turkey, canned turkey, ground beef, even taco flavored meat.  I think this is super versatile!  I enjoy chicken and love finding new ways to use it at home. I used rotisserie chicken to make mine today.  I also LOVE easy.  I’m going to give you an easy way and a second option that takes a little more time.

Cream Cheese Chicken Bundles (S)
Author: 
Recipe type: Dinner
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
 
Ingredients
  • 4 ounces ⅓ less fat or full fat cream cheese
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 2 Tbs of 0% Greek Yogurt
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • ¼ tsp of garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons onions, chopped
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, cubed or 2 cups of canned chicken
  • 4 Low Carb Tortillas (I use La Tortilla Factory)
Instructions
  1. Mix all the ingredients together, minus the tortillas and place them in a microwave safe bowl. Cook for 30 seconds or so until the butter and cream cheese are soft and you can mix the ingredients well together.
  2. Divide the ingredients up into the four low carb tortillas. Fold them up into a square packet and flip them upside down on to the baking sheet or in a casserole dish.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
  4. Options: Make it your OWN! Add veggies like broccoli or green peppers. You could use Rotel to add some flavor. Just add things you know your family will enjoy.

 Super duper easy. That’s what I like best in my kitchen.  This is the basic recipe so you can feel free to add whatever you and your family enjoy to make it suit you!  Add some spice with cayenne pepper!  Add other veggies like broccoli or cauliflower or some green peppers.  I think rotel would be another nice addition to this.  Play around with it.  You can have many versions of this recipe to enjoy by using different kinds of meat and fillings.  

If you want to try this with a calzone type breading instead of the low carb tortillas I have a recipe you can try!  Shelby Dunning told me about this delicious recipe that could work great from Maria Mind and Body.

  1. I had a similar recipe but in addition to the inside combo (similar to your recipe) you placed the filled tortillas in a baking dish, covered with shredded cheese and poured a can of evaporated milk over them and baked it. The evaporated milk evaporates and thickens creating a creamy sauce. Would that still be on plan as an S?

      We don’t really use evaporated milk on plan. Maybe you can make a similar sauce with cream, gluccie and spices? I have no idea!

  2. I was thinking the other day that I wished I knew how to convert our ckn turnover recipe, and here you’ve done it for me! Mine called for cream cheese and chopped green onions. I cut the original recipe out of the newspaper and we have had it regularly through the years (w crescent rolls) in fact each daughter has called back home to get that recipe. Now the name baseball, is much better than what we call them…Hamsters! We did have pet hamsters about the time I started making them, but nobody remembers who called them that first. They should at least have ham in them to get that name, but we have always done chopped ckn. ; )

      Paula, that is so funny…Hamsters!!!

  3. Question: What is the source of fiber in these awesome looking tortillas? I’m excited to find a new high fiber, low-carb favorite! Thanks.

    • [email protected] on said:

      I’m not sure how to answer you on that…There is oat fiber in them. These are high fiber wraps that I use.

  4. These were delicious, my hubbie even liked them. I’m going to experiment and make them ahead a freeze, have you tried that?

      No, but that’s a fun idea! I’m going to do some dessert options soon with apple filling.

  5. my middle son calls our creamy chicken filled dough things “chicken pillows”

    what a great idea to make them thm friendly! you gave me an idea, i’ll report back and share if it works out.

  6. I made this last night. I kept it to just chicken. I tasted the sauce before adding chicken. I tasted way too spicy. I’m glad I added chicken and baked them anyway. The flavor of the bundle was just right. It was a hit! My husband approved and enjoyed his.
    Thanks for the great recipe!

  7. PS
    I used a silicone brush to add some coconut oil on the top and bottom. I baked them in a glass 9×13 at 350 degrees, on convection bake.

  10. Am I missing something or us the butter the only thing that makes this an S? I’m terrible at thinking of appealing E meals besides just meat/rice. This seems like it could be a good E if I omit the butter in the filling and just use the allowable amount of butter or coconut oil to brush outside of tortillas (or could use Joseph’s lavash too)

      Hmm…well, you’d need lower fat…yes. So, white meat chicken, lower in fat cream cheese or maybe use a laughing cow cheese melted in each one in place of the cream cheese? Less butter. I think you could try to pull it off…

  12. Just curious…these look so good. Do just eat one of them along with something? I see the serving size says 4 so I am assuming it is only one bundle a person, correct? I would be afraid I may not stop they look so good. 🙂

    • [email protected] on said:

      I eat veggies or salad on the side. 🙂 They are very yummy. I guess the thing to remember if you are a THM is that you only want about 6 net carbs of bread products like these in an S meal. So if you find a wrap or shell that is 3 net carbs you could have more than one. If it’s a 6 net carb item, I’d have one.
