Shredded chicken crescent rolls that are way, way better than pizza pockets

Print this recipe
Is there anything better than the scent of crescent rolls in the oven? Yes. The scent of these shredded chicken crescent rolls in the oven, courtesy of the cheese, garlic, and herbs. Instead of a dense cream or cream cheese-based filling, the addition of tomato sauce in this recipe makes it almost a pizza pocket of sorts.
The end result is cheesy and savory inside, and crispy and buttery outside. Honestly, it’s something you need to experience yourself to fully appreciate, so pick up some crescent rolls and some chicken (a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken makes for excellent shredded chicken if you don’t feel like cooking it yourself!) and give it a go. You won’t regret it.
