Buffalo Chicken Pockets

Here’s my idea of pub food made easy: biscuits flavored with Buffalo wing sauce and blue cheese. They're my Friday night favorite. —Maria Regakis, Saugus, Massachusetts
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 3/4 pound ground chicken
  • 1/3 cup Buffalo wing sauce
  • 1 tube (16.3 ounces) large refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Blue cheese salad dressing, optional


  • Preheat oven to 375°. In a large skillet, cook chicken over medium heat until no longer pink, 5-7 minutes, breaking into crumbles; drain. Remove from heat; stir in wing sauce.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll each biscuit into a 6-in. circle and top each with 1/4 cup chicken mixture and 2 tablespoons cheese. Fold dough over filling; pinch edge to seal.
  • Transfer to an ungreased baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, 12-14 minutes. If desired, serve with blue cheese dressing.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled pockets in a freezer container. To use, reheat pockets on an ungreased baking sheet in a preheated 375° oven until heated through.

    I was wondering if you could use blue cheese instead of cheddar cheese

    Love the simplicity of them and can’t wait to try with other proteins and flavors.

    This recipe is a good starting point for so many variations! Meats can be sausage, ground beef, chicken, pork or turkey, adjust to sauces/seasonings to compliment, vary the cheese, and tuck in veggies that your family loves. Try different sauces, too! Example: Italian version would have ground Italian sausage, browned with onion and peppers, provolone cheese add a dab of marinara and some Italian seasoning. Dip in your favorite tomato sauce! Possibilities are endless!

    Used chunk canned chicken. Easy for teens to make. Makes a great lunch or for lunch boxes.

    I couldn't find ground chicken so I chopped up pre-sliced chicken tenders, it was still very good! Great for a light supper or just an anytime snack.

    I made these tonight and actually used the leftover baked buffalo chicken cut up from the October 2015 TOH issue I also added additional hot sauce to kick things up a notch. What a great way to use leftovers.
