Just to remind you—this week I’m battling both a case of writer’s block and a complete boredom with my food options with a cooking challenge. I began with a 4.25 lb chicken and I’m creating at least five different meals from the meat and whatever is in my pantry. Yesterday I went simple: roast chicken and veggies, a meal I’ve made and enjoyed forty-two zillion times. Great, but maybe a little boring. So today, I’m trying something new.
Day 2 of the Chicken Challenge
For this I used one of the (many) cans of refrigerated biscuits from the back of the fridge, about a third of a cup of shredded chicken, four or five baby carrots (grated), and a bit of barbeque sauce.
First, preheat the oven to 350 and lightly grease a sheet pan.
So freaking good.
The carrots aren’t absolutely necessary, so skip them if you’re out. They just stretch the meat a bit and make it a tad healthier.
Consider brushing the tops of the pockets with egg white to make them get all golden-brown.
These would be perfect for a simple appetizer at a party—maybe for Independence Day?
