  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking pan with parchment paper. Mix together cream cheese, chicken, cheddar, jalapeño, purple onion, salt and pepper.
  • 2
    Open biscuit dough and gently pull each biscuit apart at the center, filling each with a spoonful of chicken mixture.
  • 3
    Seal the edges tightly, then roll into balls.
  • 4
    Bring water to a boil in a deep-sided sauté pan and stir in baking soda. Gently drop biscuits into the water, boiling for about 60 seconds on each side. Gently remove biscuits from water with a large slotted spoon and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. If desired, biscuits can be carefully re-shaped to create nice, round balls.
  • 5
    Use a sharp knife to score a very small “X” into the top of each biscuit, not cutting deep enough to slice into the center filling. Sprinkle with coarse salt.
  • 6
    Bake 40-45 minutes, or until golden brown.

Expert Tips

  • Try these delicious flavor swaps: Ham and Cheese Stuffed Pretzels: use diced ham instead of chicken and omit the jalapeños. Pepperoni Pizza Stuffed Pretzels: use mini pepperoni instead of chicken, omit the jalapeños, and swap in mozzarella or pizza blend cheese instead of cheddar. Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
  • Love pretzels as much as we do? Then you’re going to want to know about this insanely clever trick we discovered: turning Pillsbury™ biscuit dough into pretzels! No need for yeast, kneading or rising. Just boil the biscuit in a mixture of water and baking soda, then bake until golden. So easy, it’s great! But we didn’t want to stop there. Instead of making plain old pretzels, we decided to make Jalapeño Popper STUFFED PRETZELS. And the results were eight perfectly golden-brown pretzel rolls which one teen taste tester said were “the best thing I’ve eaten in a week.” Give this one a try. It makes a fun kitchen craft for a creative family meal, and is an awesome appetizer for Game Day parties or your next neighborhood bash.
