  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 cups shredded, cooked chicken
  • 1 bottle barbecue sauce
  • 1 can refrigerated biscuits
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped, fresh cilantro


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Fry bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crisp.  Remove bacon from pan, blot with paper towels and crumble.  Add onion and shredded chicken to a pan with olive oil.  Saute over medium heat until onion is tender.  Stir in 1/2 cup barbecue sauce and remove from heat.  Mix in crumbled bacon.
  2. Flatten out biscuit dough on a greased cookie sheet.  Spread a teaspoon of barbecue sauce on each biscuit.  Divide the chicken mixture between the biscuits, spreading on only half of each biscuit and keeping 1/2 inch away from the edge.  Sprinkle cheese and cilantro over top of each biscuit.  Fold biscuits in half and press the edges together with a fork to seal.  Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown.  Serve with additional barbecue sauce for dipping.
