Chicken and Veggie Pinwheels

I came up with these after seeing several things like them all over pinterest.
They are full of vegetables and chicken, all wrapped up in a delicious cheesy-bread.
They didn't last very long.
Chicken and Veggie Pinwheels
Recipe inspired by Mels Kitchen Cafe

1 bread dough recipe (your favorite)
1 small onion, chopped
3 Tbsp. olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. butter, softened
1 c. grated Parmesan cheese
2 c. cooked shredded chicken
1 1/2 c. finely chopped broccoli
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 c. shredded Cheddar
1 c. shredded cheese of choice (mozzarella, pepperjack, etc.)
2 Tbsp. Italian seasoning

In a medium saucepan, heat oil and add onions, salt and pepper.
Saute until translucent or caramelized.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, cream together the butter, cream cheese and parmesan cheese.
Add onions and stir to combine.
Prepare bread dough and roll out into a large rectangle shape.
Spread the rolled out dough with the butter/cheese/onion mixture.
Top with the chicken, broccoli, peppers, cheeses, and seasoning.

Roll the dough, (like cinnamon rolls), pinching the seam to seal.
Slice the roll into 12 pieces and place each on a lightly greased baking sheet.
Let them rise until nearly doubled.
Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes, until lightly browned and bubbly.
Makes 12 large rolls.
