Flaky biscuits stuffed with spicy chicken and blue cheese. Easy to make and a surefire hit for holiday entertaining!
Preheat oven to 400ºF.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine chicken, hot sauce and butter. Set aside.
For the biscuits:
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening until the mixture resembles peas. Add milk and blue cheese and stir until the mixture comes together into a ball.
Knead for a few minutes and then use your hands and pat the dough down to a ½” thickness. Using a 2″ or larger cutter (I use a small jelly jar), cut the dough into circles and arrange half of the circles on a baking sheet.
Scoop 1 tablespoon of the chicken mixture into the center of the dough circle. Place a small chunk of blue cheese on top of the chicken mixture. Moisten the edge of the dough with a little bit of water and top with another circle of dough. Pinch edges to seal.
Bake at 400ºF for 12-15 minutes.
Once baked, you can store these in the fridge for a few days and reheat them in the oven when needed. They also freeze well.
