We love pockets so I am always trying to create new flavor combinations to pack for lunch. This recipe was inspired by one of our favorite dinners, Chicken Cordon Bleu. For us, it’s one of those special occasion meals that I only serve once in a while because of the prep work involved in assembling the meal. It has a great combination of chicken, ham, cheese and a wonderful sauce. This pocket recipe reminds of the flavors without all the work!

Assembly Directions:
Remove rolls from package and connect triangles to form rectangles.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, mix the sour cream, Parmesan cheese, and Swiss cheese. Add the diced chicken and ham and toss until coated. Evenly divide the filling between the pockets using about 1/4 C. of mixture per pocket. Fold one side of the pocket over the other side. Seal the edges by pressing with the tines of a fork. Transfer the pockets to a cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Freezing Directions:
Allow to cool on the baking sheet. Place in rigid containers or freezer bags. Seal, label and freeze.

Serving Directions:
Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Microwave on high for 2 to 4 minutes or until the pockets are hot. Place in a warmed thermos and close lid.

My kids love these pockets. It reminds them of one of their favorite “fancy” dinners we serve at our house.
