My wife and I loved this, it was so quick, easy, and delicious. We used Jack Daniels pulled BBQ chicken, we also made it a second time using pillsbury crescent rolls, both were great!

Sorry, but I didn't think this had much flavor to it.

Very easy recipe and tasty. Takes longer than 10 minutes to prep though. I would say prep time was closer to 20 minutes.

This is a great recipe, especially if you are in a hurry. If you are lucky enough to get a can of pizza dough that will cooperate with you (and I was not this particular time), this recipe can be put together in a matter of minutes. My dough came out in pieces for some reason, so much of my time was spend putting the pieces together instead of just rolling the dough out. I had some already cooked chicken leftover that I shredded and combined with some really good honey BBQ sauce. After finally getting the dough shaped, these took no time at all to get into the oven and they baked very quickly. The family really enjoyed this one and I enjoyed the fact that it was fast and easy.

This meal was almost effortless to prepare! Just the right thing to throw together at the last minute. I was surprised at the flavor, due to the few ingredients. My picky guy enjoyed these, and I think kids would love them!

Quick and easy to make... But it also tasted like it. Not saying I wouldn't make it again. I probably would actually make it again..... just not for company or anything. My kids said they tasted like non greasy hot pockets.

Super quick and easy. My family enjoyed these alot. You canalso change up the fillings for more fun!

This is amazing!! I shredded two boneless skinless chicken breasts and added the BBQ sauce until it was covered. Mine didn't quite look like the picture, or really too nice at all, but it was still delicious! I will definitely be making this again, very soon! I may add cilantro, it was missing that.
