One of the ways I keep my week-night meal prep quick and easy is to pre-cook large amounts of chicken at once, divide it into meal size portions and put it away in the freezer. Most of the time, I keep the chicken unseasoned so it can be used in any type of recipe, but barbecue chicken and fajita chicken can be very versatile, so I do add batches of these into my rotation every so often.
These Barbecue Skillet Pockets are so easy and a were a great way to use the barbecue chicken from my freezer. Of course you can use any type of pre-cooked chicken, all you have to do is add a little barbecue sauce!
Here's how to make the Skillet Pockets:
Chopped or shredded chicken
Canned biscuits (I used wal-mart brand biscuits which are kind of small - portion control, ha ha!)
Chopped red onion (optional)
Combine the chicken with a little barbecue sauce until the chicken is well coated with the sauce.
Use a rolling pin to flatten the biscuit into a circle.
Spoon a little chicken on to the middle of the circle, top with a bit more barbecue sauce, shredded cheese and optional red onions.
Fold the biscuit circles in half and seal the edges with your fingers.
Transfer to a lightly oiled frying pan heated to medium and cook about 3 to 4 minutes per side until golden brown and the biscuit is cooked through. (That is why it is helpful to roll the biscuit dough very flat.)
Serve and enjoy...
