  • Try a different flavor of cream cheese spread, such as garlic or chive-and-onion, in place of the garden vegetable spread.

I've been making these for over 25 yrs with crescent roll dough. Good with mushrooms in the filling. Absolutely one of my favorites!

These were pretty good. I made a couple of changes in the interest of making them more healthful. So in the author's defense, these were not at popular at my house but probably would be if made exactly as recipe calls. I could not find the light veggie cream cheese so I used the Italian Herb Cooking Creme (because I need to use it up). I also reduced the amount of cream cheese to 2 tablespoons total. I made this with the pizza crust, however, I think crescent rolls would be more tasty. We found these a little bland.

This can be done with pita breads and, as a spread, on different crackers, e.g. melba toast. Tasty and easy ! The cream cheese spread flavour can be changed also if you want to spice it, or fuit it, etc.

Very Good! Would suggest to use more spread or have a dip/sauce.

My 2yr old son loves this receipe. I too, have been making this for years! I like to leave the cream cheese sit out at room temp or even zap in the micro so it gets really soft. I mix the chicken, pepper, broc AND onion together with the cream cheese. Keeps it all moist. Sometimes I add a little dill, depending on flavor f cream cheese AND a little parm. Spoon it all down the center (length wise) of the dough adn then criss cross the dough over the top. Its a beautiful presentation too if you're wanting to impress company.

This turned out a lot better than I expected! I, too, used the cooking creme italian herb cheese and canned chicken. I didn't measure anything and just added the ingredients to my liking. Really good for lunch!

i used frozen broccoli and cooked i first. Don't skimp on the amount of cream cheese

Great way to use leftover frozen veggies in freezer. Best if cream cheese is REALLY soft before spreading on dough.
