CHICKEN POCKETS

Had these Chicken Pockets at a card party at a local church. They were served with Cranberry Salad. I served them yesterday to my card party but I served them with a tossed salad. They go well with either salad. When I made them I used the light Crescent rolls, and light Cream Cheese. They have a Cream of Chicken soup sauce that goes with them. Next time I make them I think I would serve chicken gravy instead of the soup. One thing I did notice was that they don't reheat well. I think they would freeze well. I hope you try them and enjoy them.
