Chicken Cordon Bleu Biscuits

Tis the season for quick recipes, am I right?  Christmas parties, school programs, office parties, shopping, baking, ack!  Who is done shopping?  I am NOT.  I am usually done before Thanksgiving, but this year has been far to full of "life" surprises to get done yet so I am still working on it.  I am doing craft shows up until the weekend before Christmas and frankly, I am to exhausted for huge meals this month!

These little biscuits were suggested to me by my husband.  I think he anticipated them to be for a snack or appetizer, and while they can certainly fulfill those titles, they could also be a great lunch or dinner.  They turned out a bit bigger than I anticipated which was NOT a bad thing.  These are easy to do, with easy ingredients and I bet the kids would enjoy helping.

You are welcome to use canned chicken, or chunks of chicken, I poached and shredded mine.  Ham, you can use the packaged thin sliced variety or have the deli counter slice it thin, just above shredded.  I used a block of Swiss but if you want to use shredded, it will work perfectly.  Make sure to use the BIG OL' biscuits, with the bits of butter and flaky.  This recipe is for 16 of these bundles of love!   Now, on with the show!

2 containers of large biscuits (16)
8 ounce block of Swiss cheese cut into small squares to fit inside
1 lb thin sliced ham (16 pieces)
2 lg chicken breasts poached and shredded
3 T. melted butter
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat your oven to the temperature on the biscuit container.  Prep all ingredients.  Take one biscuit and using a rolling pin or your hand make it thinner, and bigger.  We need to make these big enough!  Now wrap a piece of chicken and cheese in a piece of ham and lay it on one half of the biscuit.

Now grab the center and seal it over the ham to the other side. Then seal all the way around using a fork to ensure a good seal!

Repeat with all of your biscuits.  Here is what they will look like or should look like before baking.

Bake for the time recommended on the biscuit containers.  When they are done, immediately brush with melted butter, Parmesan cheese and sprinkle with a pinch of salt!
