Hot Pockets

What was my inspiration for this recipe?

I didn't want to throw another frozen pizza in the oven. Truth be told, I think I was out of them.

I was tired and didn't know what to make for dinner.

I think it's important that my kids have some form of a home cooked meal for dinner.

I had leftover chicken and my kids have developed a taste for things with melted cheese but they won't eat chicken in a quesadilla??

Searched the fridge and found some crescent rolls.

I've made a variation of this before, but it involved more ingredients. Ingredients my children won't eat.

I gave it a name they recognized and gave them a look that they better take a bite. They not only ate what was given to them, Max had seconds.

What you'll need:

Can Crescent Rolls
1 1/2 C chopped Chicken
1/2 C Cheese ~ your favorite shredded
1 t Garlic Powder

Mix Chicken, Cheese and garlic together

Roll out and press the seams together. Cut into 4 rectangles.
Put 1/3-1/2 C of your filling down the middle of one of the rectagles.
Fold over and seal edges. Ready for the oven. Bake at recommended temp on package for about 12 minutes.
Make some fries and dinner is served
