Easy Chicken Dinner

19 Nov

Today has been a lazy day.  Tony and I both had the afternoon off so that meant relaxing on the couch and catching up on our tv shows.  It wasn’t long before I was sound asleep on the couch.  Our lazy afternoon turned into a lazy evening.  We typically go out on Friday nights but tonight I wasn’t in the mood.  The Penguin game (I grew up a hockey fan and have turned my husband into one too!) came on at 7 so I knew something quick and easy was my best bet for dinner.  After looking through the refrigerator and freezer for something to cook, I decided to recreate an easy chicken dish that I made months ago.

This recipe has just a few ingredients and is simple and quick to make.  It can be used as a main dish served with a salad and a side veggie.

Chicken Biscuit Balls

Gather your ingredients.

While the chicken is cooking, make the cream cheese mixture.

Combine the chicken and cream cheese.  Flatten 2 biscuits.

Add chicken to biscuit and seal the edges.

Bake until golden brown.

Enjoy with a salad!

Chicken Biscuit Balls

  • 6 Tbs fat free or low-fat cream cheese
  • 2 tsp low-fat margarine
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 Tbs skim milk
  • 2 Tbs dry minced onion
  • 2 Cups cubed, cooked chicken
  • 1 9.5 oz can refrigerated biscuits
  1. Cut your chicken into small pieces and saute on the stove in a skillet that has been sprayed with olive oil.  Season the chicken with your favorite spice mix.
  2. While the chicken is cooking, add all of the other ingredients (except for the biscuits) to a bowl.  If the butter and cream cheese are cold, you may need to microwave the mixture for 15-20 seconds to help combine everything.  Stir the cream cheese mixture until it is creamy and smooth.
  3. Once the chicken is finished, measure out two cups.  You can dice the chicken into smaller pieces if you’d like.  Add the chicken to the cream cheese mixture and stir.
  4. Take 2 biscuits and flatten on a cutting board.  Measure a heaping 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture (or 1/5 of the total mixture) and place on one biscuit.  Using the second biscuit, cover and seal the chicken baseball.
  5. Once you have all 5 prepared, place them on a cookie sheet and bake at 350F for 14-16 minutes.
  6. Serve with a large salad and a side of veggies!  Each biscuit ball is approximately 350 calories.

These were perfect for an easy dinner on a relaxing Friday evening.  Happy weekend!
