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

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…
