I opened the crescent rolls and pinched the seam on each rectangle together to make four pouches. I spread some cream cheese (I used low fat, neufchatel). I doubled this recipe, but it is best to only handle a few at a time.

I put a big spoonful of buffalo chicken mix on one half of the crescent and topped with some shredded mozzarella cheese.

I just folded the top over and pinches the edges to seal. I repeated the process on the next four, making eight pouches all together. I topped the pouches with a little shredded mozzarella. I baked the pouches according to the crescent roll directions; for me, that was 11-13 min at 375. I put the pouches on a higher rack for the full time (13 min) to make sure that the chicken was heated through. Two pouches was the perfect serving size for Doug and I; they were easy to reheat in the microwave or for Doug to take to work!
The best part about this recipe is that you can use almost any leftovers -- chicken, beef, pork, veggies -- or even lunchmeat to make quick and easy pockets ;)
