This is delicious! I did not have blue cheese, so I used a very light tasting white cheese. I love the simple prep of this dish.
I had some wondterful pears and I had cooked chicken in the freezer.
I wish I had remembered to try a little Kraft Poppy Seed dressing
with the turnovers.But I will the next time I prepare this recipe.
Thanks for posting Krsi!
