Chicken Biscuits are a recipe that we completely made up. Many years ago now, we were trying to find something for dinner, and had the most random assortment of food in the pantry. So we started looking online for ideas on what to do with it all, and didn’t find much. After searching for a while, Justin said let’s just start cooking and see what we come up with. So we combined a few different ideas, and added our own, and came up with our recipe for chicken biscuits. Over time, we have tweaked the recipe, and now it is a pretty solid recipe for us. The original recipe did not include ranch powder, but they needed something more and that made all the difference!
Chicken biscuits are a meal that can be made on your own, but I find it easier if Justin is able to help cook. You stuff the biscuits similar to how a calzone is made, and it often helps to have one person to hold the biscuit while the other fills it. I’ve done it by myself, but the process is much quicker and smoother when there are two people. My recipe calls for boiling some boneless, skinless chicken breasts and shredding it. But you could also use a rotisserie chicken as well, which would give you light and dark meat.
Another win for us: the boys will eat these! They don’t know that there are a few good things in there, and they like the flavor. We have a hard time getting my oldest to eat meat, and he will eat the chicken in these. This is also another recipe that will reheat well, and is great for taking to work because they are very filling. I can usually only eat one biscuit at a meal.
