"These were very good, and the recipe is a good jumping off point for making your own creation. I agree that the crunch from the celery was nice, and I too had a bit of extra leftover, but nothing major. These do require some sort of dipping sauce though, as it can be a bit dry. One thing to try is to sub in bell pepper for the celery, maybe throw in some corn, then after these are baked, dip them in some salsa."

"I must not have measured very well because I had quite a bit of extra chicken mixture. We liked the crunch from the celery. Everyone says it's easy to work with crescent rolls, but I find it tedious. Still, there were a hit."

"These were pretty good, and it seems like they'd be easy to tweak with different ingredients. I made them for lunch for myself and my 2 year old, with a little dipping sauce ;)."
