Easy Chicken Turnovers

"I adopted this recipe from the Recipezaar account as I am always on the look out for make ahead recipes. I think these will freeze well and I look forward to trying that. This is the original introduction: "I needed to use up some cooked chicken and also wanted something quick, so, this is what I came up with. It was a hit at my house, I hope it is at yours too!(:" (thanks cbw)"

    We called these pot pie turnovers, as they taste a lot like chicken pot pie. Very good. I made a batch and froze them for quick easy lunches or snacks. Just pop them in the microwave to thaw, and then into the toaster oven to brown them up a bit. Yummy!

    These were good. I experimented with a few of them and added a blob of cream cheee before wrapping them up; yummy. I also enjoyed them as leftovers and had some salsa on them, made it a little mexican treat.

    Very good. My family just loved them. And was super great to freeze them for later when someone needs a snack. I want to sugest you could also make them with red sauce and mozzarella cheese. Come out really tasty. THANKS Pamela!!!

    This was good. I've been looking for ideas for my husband's lunch and he liked these. I just wish I knew a way to crisp them up in the microwave. We used leftover rice in ours too. I think next time I'll add some broccoli to mine and instead of using italian breadcrumbs I think we'll skip the breadcrumbs and put Italian seasoning inside with the filling. I may even get a homemade dough recipe to make these.
