Of Course, Grands!

The other day I made this recipe, Chicken and Biscuit Pockets, for lunch. Having shredded zucchini and squash in it, I was wondering how it would be received by my youngest son. They came out of the oven, and I put one on his plate. He took a bite then looked at me and said that it was good. He then asked what was in them.

I rattled off the ingredients: chicken, zucchini, squash, cheese and covered with Grands biscuits. He then replied, “Of course they are good, Grands!”

They were really good and as I substituted zucchini and yellow squash in place of the summer squash, I can see a lot of variation working here. I also had some Jarlsberg cheese I wanted to use up so I put that in place of the Cheddar or Monterrey Jack.

The mayo and mustard are for a dip.

Roll out the biscuits just a bit, place a scoop of the chicken mixture inside then fold over and pinch the edge shut.

Chicken and Biscuit Pockets

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 6 ounce package (5) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped cooked chicken
  • 1/3 cup coarsely shredded yellow summer squash
  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon honey mustard
  • 1/2 cup bottled ranch salad dressing

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Separate biscuits and flatten each with the palm of your hand to a 3-1/2-inch circle. Divide chicken, squash, and cheese evenly among dough circles, placing filling on one side of each dough circle. Fold the other sides of dough circles over filling; pinch edges well to seal.* Arrange filled biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven about 10 minutes or until golden.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise and mustard. Serve mayonnaise mixture and ranch dressing as dipping sauces for warm biscuits. Makes 5 servings.

    Very nice. I’ve always wanted to do a homemade take on Hot Pockets. Should I make my biscuits by hand or does store-bought hold up better?

    Question: did you pair anything with this or just did the biscuits?

      I think we had a bowl of mixed fruit with it. I’m sure it would pair with quite a bit, though.

    Made this tonight! I actually ended up mixing cooked chicken, the squash, the mayo, and dijon together. Once I started putting it in the middle of the biscuit I thought it was going to turn into a big mess, but luckily, it didn’t! I had some mix left over though…
