"When I was expecting our third child, this was one of the meals I put in the freezer ahead of time," recalls Jo Groth of Plainfield, Iowa. "We now have four kids and they all like these rich chicken pockets. I've also made them with ham or smoked turkey," she adds.

"This was pretty tasty! I make something similar to this with salmon instead of chicken and it's delicious. Maybe next time I will add in some finely chopped celery and onion to give it a bit more taste. I like the idea of adding cheese, like a previous reviewer said. I may try that too. Either way, a good dish! Will make this again."

"I often make these with reduced fat cream cheese and crescent rolls. Plus, I usually don't add the chives. Even my youngest who does not like cream cheese or anything else creamy loves these. My oldest requests them frequently."

"My family and I loved it. We used some leftover rotisserie chicken we had from the night before. I also added a can of mushrooms, and dried chopped onion to it. Instead of seasoned stuffing, I used Italian style bread crumbs that I had on hand. I only used enough to really coat the cream cheese mixture. VERY TASTY. I will definitely be making again."
