Chicken Crescent Chimichangas

This is another recipe for one of those nights when you are short on time. Use leftover chicken, or boil a few frozen breasts for 20 minutes and then shred. My family liked this. Just REALLY seal the perforations between the crescent rolls. It makes it so much easier to roll when stuff isn't falling out....ask me how I know this! :-)
