Equipment

  • Large Skillet
  • Cookie Sheet

Ingredients

  • 6 strips of bacon
  • ½ cup diced red onion
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cooked and shredded
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 16 ounces barbecue sauce 1 bottle, divided
  • 16.3 ounces refrigerated biscuit dough 1 package
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Fry bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, blot with paper towels and crumble. 
  • Add onion and shredded chicken to a pan with olive oil.  Saute over medium heat until onion is tender. Stir in 1/2 cup barbecue sauce and remove from heat. Mix in crumbled bacon.
  • Flatten out biscuit dough on a greased cookie sheet. Spread a teaspoon of barbecue sauce on each biscuit. Divide the chicken mixture between the biscuits, spreading on only half of each biscuit and keeping 1/2 inch away from the edge. 
  • Sprinkle cheese and cilantro over top of each biscuit. 
  • Fold biscuits in half and press the edges together with a fork to seal. 
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown. 
  • Serve with additional barbecue sauce for dipping.

Notes

  • You can also use bacon bits or pre-cooked bacon if you’re in a hurry.
