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.

Barbecue Chicken Skillet Pockets

  • Author: Jamie Sanders

Description

These Barbecue Chicken Skillet Pockets are a great way to use up leftover chicken! Refrigerated biscuits, shredded chicken, barbecue sauce and cheese is all you need for these fun little pockets.


Ingredients

  • Chopped or shredded chicken
  • Barbecue sauce
  • Shredded cheese
  • Canned biscuits (I used wal-mart brand biscuits which are kind of small – portion control, ha ha!)
  • Chopped red onion (optional)

Instructions

  1. Combine the chicken with a little barbecue sauce until the chicken is well coated with the sauce.
  2. Use a rolling pin to flatten the biscuit into a circle.
  3. Spoon a little chicken on to the middle of the circle, top with a bit more barbecue sauce, shredded cheese and optional red onions.
  4. Fold the biscuit circles in half and seal the edges with your fingers.
  5. 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’s why it is helpful to roll the biscuit dough very flat.)

Serve and enjoy…

  8. This sounds great! I love the idea of cooking it ahead of time and freezing it for quick dinners.

  9. My favorite quick meal is Gnocchi (storebought) with tomatosauce and crisp bacon on top. Super fast, super easy and just super! The kids love it too. Yum!
