Freezer Meals Friday

With all the requests for my freezer meal recipes, I decided to start posting them. Look for one every Friday for Freezer Meals Friday!
Creamy Spinach Artichoke Chicken Bundles (16 servings)
2 10-oz cans of chicken
2 8-oz packages of cream cheese, softened
1 8-oz package of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 can of artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
4 cans of crescent rolls
Melted butter
1. Combine chicken, cream cheese, spinach, and artichoke hearts in a large bowl; mix well until all ingredients are fully incorporated.
2. Instead of dividing crescent roll dough into triangles, press seams together to form rectangles (four rectangles from each package)
3. Place heaping tablespoon of chicken mixture in center of crescent roll rectangles; wrap sides around and pinch to seal
4. Roll bundles in melted butter and breadcrumbs; place on a cookie sheet, seam side down, and freeze until solid; transfer to a gallon ziplock bag and freeze for up to three months.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes; serve with rice pilaf and a green salad.
*You can substitute fresh ingredients for the frozen/canned ones--it's just so much easier and you can't tell a difference when it's made.
