SAMM--Chicken Pockets

Wow--the weeks are flying by and it is again time to link up to my Sista's SAMM party.

Today's recipe is a fun one...CHICKEN POCKETS.
It could also be called LEFTOVER POCKETS--as the leftovers in my fridge usually dictate what goes into these babies.

The basic recipe is as follows:

some chicken (cooked and cut up into pieces)
1 pkg cream cheese
a handful of craisins
a handful of chopped nuts (I like pecans, almonds or walnuts)
2 tubes of biscuits

This time I had leftover breaded chicken strips--so in the bowl they go.

I also had some leftover brown rice:

My favorite part of the recipe:

Add the cream cheese and nuts and mix it all together till it looks like this:

Roll out the biscuits like this:

Place a dob of stuff on each one and either fold it on top of itself and seal the edges--or place another rolled biscuit on top and seal the edges.

Next--bake them according to the package directions on the biscuit packaging (until they start to turn golden brown).

Make a simple sauce:
1 can cream soup (again--I use cream of chicken--but for those who don't mind the fungus--you can use mushroom)
Salt and Pepper
Milk till you reach desired thickness

(SORRY--it got too hectic around dinner for me to take a picture of the finished product.) 
Just imagine it plated beautifully with the sauce drizzled perfectly over the pockets and served next to some elegant looking steamed vegetables...this is--of course--not how we served it--our version was plopped onto plates next to some canned corn or something like that.

ANYHOO--These are really yummy and easy AND a great way to disguise use up leftovers.

Some other fun Pocket variations are:
Broccoli and cheese
Pepperoni and cheese (like a pizza pocket)
Turkey and stuffing (leftover from Thanksgiving maybe?)

Pretty much any leftovers will do.  Shhh don't tell.
