On an ungreased baking sheet, separate the dough into rectangles; seal perforations.

Spread 1 tablespoon cream cheese lengthwise down the center of each rectangle.

Place ham widthwise over the dough. Arrange chicken in center in center of each rectangle. Wrap ham around chicken.

At each long end, pinch the dough together, forming points.
