These bombs are truly BOMB!
Talk about absolute comfort! All you need for enjoying a full, fabulous meal besides these beautifully stuffed biscuits is a gorgeous, refreshing side salad. These cheesy bombs really are a complete meal! Each biscuit is filled with ooey-gooey cheddar cheese and savory chicken pot pie filling. They’re brushed with butter and garnished with a pinch more cheese so that it can melt marvelously on top as they bake in the oven. You can make these for any occasion, party, or get together. This is something everyone will go nuts over and just fall so in love with, especially during the holiday season. Chicken pot pie is something we have all grown up with so of course, we all make our own traditional versions of it. However, this is my new version and I don’t think I’ll ever go back! They’re personal little hand pies filled with incredible ingredients that’ll leave you and your guests wanting more!
Prepare the chicken pot pie filling!
- Small dice one white onion.
- Small dice two stalks of celery.
- Slice one peeled carrot or as many baby carrots as you did celery.
- Sweet corn. You can use fresh, canned, or frozen.
- Canned or frozen peas.
- In a saute pan, melt three tablespoons of butter with a drizzle of good olive oil over medium heat.
- Season the mirepoix with sea salt, freshly cracked black pepper, paprika, everything but the elote seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, chives, parsley, basil, and oregano.
- Saute the vegetables for five minutes before adding in all of the other ingredients.
- While the vegetables caramelize for a few minutes I suggest cutting up the chicken breast for the filling from a rotisserie chicken. I left the skin on because I love the texture and flavor that it brings to a dish, but if you don’t, by all means leave it out.
- After the veggies have become soft and started to caramelize, deglaze the pan with a 1/4 cup of sherry wine. Then whisk in two tablespoons of flour so that we can have a nice, thick sauce as an end result.
- Pour in one cup of whole milk and 1/2 can of cream of chicken soup.
- Whisk until fully combined and let the creamy sauce simmer for 1-2 minutes.
- Toss in all of the chicken, 1/2 can of corn and half can of peas as well. You don’t want to use too many for this recipe!
- A couple dashes or worcestershire sauce and a few minutes on the stove, and you’ve got yourself the most delicious, savory, and moist chicken pot pie filling to stuff inside some biscuits.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees while you build your biscuit bombs!
- Using canned biscuit dough, place all 8 of them on a foil lined baking sheet. Then, stretch them out some so that they are easier to fold into a ball once they are filled. Put one tablespoon of cheese in the middle of each biscuit.
- Drop a spoonful of filling on top of the cheese on each biscuit.
- Pull the sides over the cheese and chicken mixture so that you can form the biscuits into a ball. Then, brush each one with melted butter and garnish them all with cheddar cheese so that your loved ones know that there’s cheese inside and voila! You have your cheesy, chicken pot pie bomb ready for the oven!
The filling makes two cans of biscuits!
BAKE FOR 35 MINUTES OR UNTIL GOLDEN BROWN!
They come out of the oven beautifully browned, buttery, and bountiful! Each one is fantastically flakey from the biscuit dough which makes these bombs, BOMB! 😉 The idea of this is actually amazing for your thanksgiving leftovers as well! You could definitely make the exact same recipe with the exact same ingredients with just a switch of the chicken to turkey. It would be a really great and creative way to use your left over turkey since we always find ourselves buying a bigger one then we actually need. Speaking of Thanksgiving leftovers! Be on the lookout for a few wonderful ways to repurpose all of your favorite holiday dishes here on the blog right after turkey day!! Heating up a plate of delectable holiday food is always heartwarming, but if you’re able to experience those icnoic flavors again in a whole new light when turning them into something completely different then they once were, why not?!
