These are great for a Super Bowl party or anytime for that matter! The barbecue taste along with yummy crescent roll dough, Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning is wonderful. Prep time is approximate.

Very good and easy! I did cook them in the oven a bit longer than stated, closer to 30 minutes and poured the remaining sauce in the pan. We enjoyed these and will definitely be having these again. By the way I couldn't figure out how to skin the chicken quickly so left the skin on and they still worked out fine. Thanks for sharing!
