My friend Kelly gave me this recipe since her family loves it. I have to admit, I was a little hesitant to make it at first because I couldn't visualize it. But it sounded easy and I knew my family would like everything in it so I decided to make it. We all loved it!! It reminds me a little of mini pot pies (in fact, next time I make these I may use a little less green onion and add some finely chopped carrot and celery to this!) But it's great just the way it is too!! Thanks again Kelly for another recipe my family will use for a long time!!
*2 cups cooked chicken, chopped or shredded (I'm a big fan of shredded vs chopped in a dish like this. I had a few chicken breasts on hand so I boiled them with some seasoning and then shredded. Next time I will use rotisserie chicken making it that much easier!)
*1 package (8oz) nonfat cream cheese at room temp (I used 1/3 less fat, but next time i will try the fat free!)
*4 green onions chopped (I only used 2 1/2 since my family isn't huge onion lovers)
*2 cans (7 oz each) buttermilk biscuits (10 biscuits per can)
*1 can (10 oz) reduced fat cream of chicken soup (I, on accident, grabbed the cream of celery soup and used that. It was still great, but my husband and I agreed the cream of chicken would be a bit better)
*1/2 can water
*Season with black pepper
Preheat oven to 375
1)Mix first 3 ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix well.
2)Lay out half the biscuits on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Lightly flatten the biscuits with the palm of your hand.
3)Equally divide the chicken mixture on the ten biscuits. Flatten remaining biscuits and place over biscuits topped with filling. Seal edges by pinching.
4)Bake for 20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.
5)While they are baking, prepare sauce by mixing soup and water in a sauce pan. Heat on medium heat and cook until thoroughly heated. Spoon sauce over each pocket when serving.
