The 3 OZ package is not available in my local stores so 2 of those is 2/3rds of a package here in Canada. This means to not waste any I would have to make 3 times the recipe to not waste 1/3rd of the cream cheese every time! I should not be wasting food while making what looks like a tasty recipe...

Sorry, but I don't understand only a 3-star overall rating. My cousin brought these to our Xmas buffet a couple of years ago and everyone thought they were the best eating they'd had in a loooong time. I've made them since and guests have always thought they were something very special and "fussy." Correct on the first but not the second. A no-brainer to put together and oh, SO good!! A five-star from us, for sure.

These are very portable! Good for your kids' sports teams when it's your turn to provide a snack. Something different than pizza.

Very good! Have had this recipe over 20 years and the family loves it. To make it even easier than it already is I use canned chicken.

That's a good idea ruegge! I try to keep shredded chicken in the freezer, but sometimes I run out. I'm trying to make a list of pantry staples, and I think I'll add canned chicken. I don't have a big freezer, so the canned items are easier for me to store.

Very easy and really good!
