Does the original white meat make a regular appearance in the dinner rotation at your house? If you're like most families, I suspect it does. So I'm positive you'll want to stand by for today's amazing Easy Bake creation – barbecue chicken cheddar pockets!

These easy fold-overs are a snap to make and are a great alternative to ho-hum chicken. And what's more, they are perfect for using up leftovers. So grab that rolling pin and let's get going!

For barbecue chicken cheddar pockets you will need:

  • 1/3 cup Betty Crocker pie crust mix
  • 4 tsp. Water
  • Barbecue sauce
  • Cooked chicken
  • Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven for 15 minutes. Combine pie crust mix and water with a fork until it forms a stiff dough. Divide into two balls and roll out each separately. Spread each round with barbecue sauce. Place chicken and cheddar on one half. Fold other half over and pinch edges to close. Spray cooking pan with veggie oil and bake for 20 minutes. Yield 2 pockets.

Our favorite barbecue sauce here at Lightbulb Cuisine is Sweet Baby Ray's hot 'n spicy blend. We like to say a barbecue wouldn't be complete without our old friend Ray!

Cluck, cluck....that's Easy Baking!

Love, Cookie B.

Sounds good Cookie. I'm sending Cletus out to snatch us a chicken. Stupid chickens are always wandering around the trailer park clucking at stuff. I just hope they ain't too tough.
