"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.

Update: Made this again this evening and of course forgot to add the celery, onion & cheese. I used Italian style bread crumbs as a topping since I didn't have seasoned stuffing. Worked out great!"

"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."

"My husband and I really like these so I make a double batch. I used minced onion instead of chives and crushed flavored croutons instead of the stuffing."

"We made at church for a make'n'take thing we do and everyone loved them! I replaced the chives with green chilies and they were awesome! Used crushed curtons for the topping, we loved the crunch."

"I made these bundles 2 different ways for my husband's platoon meeting. I made them the way the recipe here is done and they were delicious, but I also added and changed a few things about it to make the second batch and they were even more scrumptious.

First, I simmered 1 cup of chopped mushrooms with my chicken. I also used one 8 oz. pkg of cream cheese and only 3 tablespoons of butter. Instead of regular salt I used garlic salt and added 1 tablespoon of basil and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese. Before I spooned the mixture onto the crescents I sprinkled on a little shredded cheese.
I will be making these often! Our new favorite meal!"
