Garlic Chicken Pinwheels, an easy appetizer with only 5 ingredients and great for the holidays!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Finlandia™. The opinions and text are all mine.
My family went crazy for these Garlic Chicken Pinwheels! Such an easy appetizer for the holidays with only 5 ingredients including pizza dough, shredded cheese, chicken, tomato sauce, and Finlandia™ Black Garlic Creamy Gourmet Cheese!
Thrilled to be working with Finlandia again. I hope you had a chance to check out my Butter Crunch Cake recipe from a few weeks ago with their fabulous imported premium butter.
I’ve always loved Finlandia and their popular Swiss cheese, and was so happy to try their Creamy Gourmet Cheese recently. It’s creamy and full of flavor and would be fabulous on crackers, toast, or sandwiches and not to mention also great to bake and cook with.
I had to literally put the spoon out of my son’s hands to stop him from eating the Black Garlic Creamy Gourmet Cheese right out of the container! Finlandia has been making cheese and butter in Finland for over 100 years, so they know their dairy and it shows.
Besides the Black Garlic, Finlandia has 4 other varieties of their Creamy Gourmet Cheese including Vanilla Bean, Garden Dill, Sweet Lemon, and Classic. I can’t wait to try the others because the Black Garlic was fabulous!
You’re going to love these Garlic Chicken Pinwheels with the Black Garlic Creamy Gourmet Cheese! So easy to make! If you’re not a garlic fan, you could substitute one of the other varieties like the Classic or Garden Dill.
To get started on these pinwheels, first mix the Creamy Gourmet Cheese with precooked shredded (or chopped) chicken.
Roll out some pizza dough with your favorite rolling pin. When your dough is approximately 10×15 inches, spread the cheese mixture on top. Tightly roll up the pizza dough then slice into about 1-inch slices.
Place the pinwheels on cookie sheets making sure you leave some room for them to spread. I like to use parchment paper for easy cleaning after.
Bake the pinwheels for about 15-20 minutes until golden brown. You now have yourself a tasty appetizer that is great for parties year round and holiday parties!
Serve the Garlic Chicken Pinwheels with your favorite tomato or pizza sauce for dipping.
Precooked shrimp or precooked crumbled sausage would also be great instead of chicken. For a vegetarian option, you can omit the chicken or substitute precooked chopped vegetables. Mushrooms or bell peppers would be fabulous!
When you make these, please let me know ok? I’d love to send my son over because he couldn’t get enough of these!!
The Creamy Gourmet Cheese had so much flavor that you really don’t even need to add any additional spices or herbs. These pinwheels are full of flavor!
