Chicken Pockets

My Mother-in-Law used to make these after Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with the left over turkey. I got the recipe from her and does what every cook does, altered it a bit and made it my own. I like it so much, I find myself going to Costco and getting a few of those 'Rotisserie Chickens" and not waiting for them to be 'leftovers'.

Ingredients

3-4 oz
cream cheese
3 Tbsp
butter, melted
2 c
chicken, cooked and cut up, left overs works great
2 Tbsp
milk
2 Tbsp
green onion, whites and green parts sliced
1/2 tsp
garlic powder
salt to taste
pepper to taste
1 pkg
refrigerated crescent rolls or
4
rhodes rolls or other frozen roll dough thawed, or
fresh yeast dough of your choice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
If using packaged crescents rolls, form squares with 2 pieces by pinching together one long edge. May also use your own fresh roll dough or other favorite frozen roll dough, thawed. Just roll them out thin.
2
Mix together Cream Cheese Chicken, Milk, Salt, Pepper, Garlic, and green onion/chives slices, leaving the chicken in small chunks, and the cream cheese as well.
3
Divide mixture between the 4 prepared roll squares. Pinch together the edges forming a pocket. If using frozen yeast dough, pockets will be more round, instead of the square-ish shape of the crescent rolls. Place on a baking sheet, I line with Parchment, Brush with melted Butter.
4
Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
Serve with cranberry sauce if desired.
5
These can be pre-prepared and frozen. After you have mixed the filling, and filled the pockets, place on a parchment paper square, brush with melted butter, gently fold paper around pocket, wrap in plastic wrap and freeze. To bake these from FROZEN, place in a covered shallow casserole dish and bake in a 350 oven, covered for 40-45 minutes, then uncovered for 20-25 minutes more, brush with butter when you take the lid off.
Serve with cranberry sauce.
