Barbeque Chicken & Bacon Cheesy Bites

I never know what to make for dinner. So I came up with this tonight all on my own.

My boys aren't that picky, but some nights they barely eat. I tend to end up making something from the freezer. The nights I do cook, I end up with leftovers. I have been wanting to make a taco ring that I saw on Pinterest. I had all the ingredients in my kitchen and I was set to make it. I planned to use chicken instead of beef. Then I had a great idea! (Well, I hope it is. It is in the oven right now.) I had fully cooked bacon in the fridge and some leftover barbeque sauce from a fast food restaurant. (Don't you keep them? I have taco sauce, ketchup, BBQ, mustard and lots of napkins.)

Everything was in my kitchen. Crescent Rolls, Cheese, Bacon, Chicken, BBQ Sauce
I love using my pizza stone. It is well used. For me it is the best choice for baking crescent rolls. I popped open the crescent rolls, grabbed the cheese, chicken and bacon, and a couple barbeque sauce packets.

Unroll crescent rolls, top with cheese and BBQ sauce,
It is super simple to make. I didn't even measure anything out. You could easily double this to make a larger serving. I only used one 8 count tube of crescent rolls. If you used two, then the finished product would be more of a ring than a packet like mine.

I used fully cooked chicken and bacon which saved extra time. You could cook this yourself or substitute with ground beef, turkey or even steak strips. I chose the quick and easy version.

I love to be honest on my blog, so you can see that my oven desperately needs to be cleaned. (I didn't show the stove top because none of the pinterest tricks have worked to get that clean.) To be honest, I don't really like to cook anymore. It used to be fun to come up with new recipes from whatever was in my kitchen. Now, I tend to throw something together just to get the boys fed. This was super simple and required little thought!

Don't forget to preheat your oven, I seem to always skip that step. 

Well it just came out of the oven, so here is the recipe. I hope it tastes as good as it looks! Try it and let me know what you think.
