Introduction: Chicken Cups!
This is my first Instructable. I first learned of this recipe from a friend of mine, back when we both were still in the Army. These are especially good when it is a chilly or cold day outside. :)
Step 1: Gather the Ingredients!!!
First, you want to gather your ingredients/utensils... and you may use different proportions, just experiment a little bit.
1 Can of Cream of Chicken Soup -or- Cream of Mushroom Soup
Secret blend of herbs/spices (your choice of what you want)
1 can of biscuits
Diced Chicken (Not Pictured Here)
1/3 - 1 Can of water (from the Soup Can)
1 Mixing Bowl
1 Muffin Pan
Spoon (Not Pictured Here)
Spatula (Not Pictured Here)
Fork (Not Pictured Here)
Knife (Not Pictured Here)
Step 2: Prepare the Ingredients!!!
First you want to dice your (cooked) chicken (Skip this step if you have pre-diced, canned chicken).
Second, you put the Cream of Chicken (or Mushroom) Soup into a bowl and
add the 1/3 to 1 can of water. (To soup things up a bit) and stir with a fork until well blended.
Third, add the diced chicken, and herbs/spices.
Fourth, put the ingredients into the fridge for 15 Min.
While you are waiting those long 15 min, you can...... (next page)
Step 3: Prepare the Cups!!!
.... You can set the timer to 15 min,
... Set the Oven to 350Ë,
... and Prepare the "Cups"
-For these next steps, I am sorry, I forgot to take pictures of so I will elaborate the best I can.
First, if you do not have a non-stick muffin pan, you must grease you pan. (The cups will stick otherwise)
Second, open your can, roll, or tube of biscuits .
-Or if you make your own homemade dough, then cut the dough into biscuit like shapes.
Third, squash the biscuit dough with your hand or rolling pin.
Fourth, pull/spread at the biscuit dough until the center is somewhat thinner than the outside (kind of like a pizza, thinner crust in the middle, thicker crust on the outside)
Finally, form the dough into the muffin cups, (this will take a little bit of delicacy)
After the 15 min of waiting, take your Cream of Chicken/Mushroom Soup/ Diced chicken mixture out of the fridge, and spoon some of it into the dough cups, until you have filled them almost to the top.
Then add cheese!
Step 4: The Broiler...
....Then pop them into the oven for 10-15 minutes.
Towards the end of your 10-15 minutes, I would advise that you turn on the broiler in your oven to get that nice golden brown flakiness to the outer portion of your biscuits. Its a good thing. (In my best Martha Stewart voice) :)
Step 5: These... Are.. DELICIOUS!!!
After 10-15 min in the oven pull them out, and let them cool off a bit.
I have more Ideas about different uses for this.. Instead of Chicken/Cream of Chicken Soup, You could use:
Pizza/pasta sauce and Pepperoni/sausage to make Pizza cups, -or-
An egg w/ or w/out cheese for breakfast cups
The possibilities are endless.. well, ok, almost, but you get the gist!
