Easy Chicken Snacks

I used to make these "chicken packets" when I first moved out of my Gran's house.  Granny was an amazing cook (there were no pre-made doughs or sauces in her house).  I searched google for DIY hot pockets and hit the mother load!  

I thought I'd make a fun snack for the hubby for when I'm gone.  I had a coupon for crescent rolls so I kinda just took a little info from several recipes.  These are definitely not the healthiest meal I've made but they were super easy.  Here goes!

Crescent Roll Chicken Packets
makes 8 packets

2 tubes of crescent rolls (I used reduced fat) 
1 cup shredded chicken
1 cup shredded mozarrella cheese
1 cup riccotta cheese (also reduced fat)
1/2 cup bell pepper (seeded, chopped and sauteed)
1 cup spinach, chopped and sauteed
1/2 cup onion, chopped and sauteed
1 tablespoon crushed garlic


Preheat oven to 375.  Combine all ingredients except for the rolls into a large bowl and mix thoroughly. 

Open crescent roll tubes.  Used 2 crescent rolls (a large rectangle) and lay it our on a floured or non-stick surface.

Add filling to one half.  Fold dough over filling and seal the edges.

Place filled dough packets on a non-stick cookie sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool for a few minutes before biting into chicken packets.  They are hot!
