BBQ Chicken Biscuits

I am a big fan of things made in a muffin pan. From sweets to savory. From blueberry muffins to buffalo chicken biscuits. Tonight, I experimented with a new idea, BBQ chicken in a biscuit! My latest food obsession is ground chicken. I discovered it while trying to plan out a meal around what was on sale at the grocery store. I tried it the first time in taco soup, and was hooked! It cooks up so much better than ground turkey. It has a very fine texture and breaks down easier than turkey too.

These are super easy to make, the hardest part is chopping the onion. And opening the can of biscuits. I have a HUGE fear of them popping open and exploding all over the kitchen so I make my dear husband open them for me. I know, wuss!

Preheat oven to temperature on the biscuit can directions. Chop, or mince, the onion and saute in a little olive oil until they start to soften up.

Add chicken and cook until no longer pink. Meanwhile, open biscuits and press into cups of a greased, large muffin pan. 

I tried the wheat Grand's biscuits this time around. I was pretty happy with the result. You can use any biscuit, just make sure it's the larger 'Grand' size. 

Drain meat and stir in BBQ sauce. 

Divide up meat between the 8 biscuits. I had about a cup of meat left that I put on a sandwich roll for my husband's lunch tomorrow. Anyway. Top with cheese and pop in oven. The directions on the biscuits I used said to bake around 15 minutes. I put them in the oven for 17 because it takes a little longer for the biscuits to bake with toppings on them. 

Let them cool a bit before removing from pans. Pick them up and bite them or eat them with a fork! We had ours with orange slices and a salad, but they would be great with a side of potato salad! Enjoy!

BBQ Chicken Biscuits

1 yellow onion, minced
1 pound ground chicken
1 cup favorite BBQ sauce, I used honey
1 can of large biscuits
Shredded cheese, I used Fiesta Blend

Preheat oven to temp in biscuit directions. 

Saute onions in a little olive oil until just softened. Add in ground chicken and cook until no longer pink. 

Meanwhile, slightly flatten biscuits in the palm of your hand and press into greased large muffin pans. 

Drain chicken and stir in BBQ sauce. Divide meat between biscuits. You will have about an extra cup of meat.  Sprinkle cheese over biscuits and bake a few minutes over time called for on can. Until biscuits are done and cheese is melted.

Let them cool a minute before removing from pan.
