Thai Chicken Cups

Imagine being able to travel the world without leaving the comfort of your home, without having to elbow and karate-chop your way through the stampede of people at the airport who all decided to take a vacation the same time you did, without having to spend an arm and a leg just to cramming] yourself in a tiny seat in coach for 14 hours.

Whaaaa??? You say. How is that even possible?

One word for you: Food 🙂

Sink your teeth into these Thai Chicken Cups and take a flavor trip with your taste buds! First stop: Thailand!

Thai Chicken Cup

You Will Need:

  • 1 1/4 cups finely chopped cooked chicken
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup Thai peanut sauce
  • 1 can Immaculate Baking Co.® refrigerated flaky or buttermilk biscuits
  • 2 tablespoons chopped peanuts

Here’s How to Get the Dough Rolling:

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray 16 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. In medium bowl, stir together chicken, bell pepper, 3 tablespoons of the cilantro, the carrot and peanut sauce; set aside.
  3. Separate dough into 8 biscuits; separate each biscuit into 2 dough rounds. Place 1 dough round in each muffin cup; firmly press in bottom and up side of cup. Spoon about 2 teaspoons chicken mixture into each dough-lined cup.
  4. Bake 12 to 16 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown. Immediately remove from muffin cups. Sprinkle with remaining tablespoon cilantro and the peanuts. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

  • Look for Thai peanut sauce in the ethnic-foods section of your grocery store.
  • Use a medium shred on the carrots instead of a fine shred so the carrots can be seen once mixed with the other ingredients.
