Chicken Salad and Apple-Cinnamon Rolls

We had some yummy recipes today! For breakfast we had some apple stuffed rolls from, and the recipe is a take on their pizza rolls.  It's found in their cookbook, but here is the recipe.
Stuffed Apple-Cinnamon Rolls

1 package refrigerated pizza dough or 1 recipe homemade (I used homemade) pizza dough
2 c shredded green apples, about 3 apples
3 T brown sugar
1 t ground cinnamon
1 T flour
1 T butter, melted
1 T sugar
1/4 t cinnamon
6 T powdered sugar
1 T butter, melted
1/4 t vanilla
1-2 t milk
Preheat oven to temperature specified in pizza recipe.  Spray a baking dish.  Roll out the pizza dough, and cut into 3 inch squares.  (I had 25 squares at the end, because I can't roll out a perfectly straight rectangle :))  Combine the shredded apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and flour.  Divide it evenly between your squares, and roll them up with the seam side down in the plate.  (I ended up having less filling than dough, so I made a few with some prunes.  If you like prunes, these are fabulous, if you don't try some other fruit).  Combine 1 T butter, sugar and cinnamon, then crumble over the rolls.  Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown on top.  Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes.  While the rolls are cooling, mix together the powdered sugar, 1 T butter, vanilla and milk.  Drizzle on top of the rolls and serve.  These are best served warm, but they are great after cooling too.

We gave these an 8, and with the addition of 1/2 c prunes, the calories were 111/roll for 25 rolls.
Dinner was delicious, and also from the Our Best Bites cookbook.  It was a Spicy Honey Chicken Salad and it was fabulous.  The chicken had so much flavor, and the salad ingredients all went together really well, especially with the dressing.  We gave this a 9, and the calories for 6 servings were 456/serving.  We will definitely be having this again.  The most time-consuming part was boning and skinning the chicken, and if you bought it already boned and skinned, you would have a dinner that only took about 15 minutes.  Delicious and fast, my favorite :)

We are having some chicken and cheesecake tomorrow.
