Chicken Parm Bites

Growing up I was never a fan of Chicken Parmesan whatsoever.  Chicken and marinara just grossed me out.  Today, I've grown out of it! YAY!  These are fun handheld bites to switch things up at the dinner table!

Chicken Parm Bites
*serves 2-3

1 Can 8 pack of Biscuits (I only had crescent handy at the time)
1-2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (depending on size) (shred or dice very small)
3/4 C. Favorite Marinara Sauce
1/3 C. Shredded Parmesan (or the grated parmesan out of the green container)
Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Italian Seasonings
1 Egg (beaten)

1. Boil chicken for 45 mins.  Cut up or shred.  Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste.
2. Preheat oven to 400.  Spray a 6X9 pyrex pan with non stick spray.
3. Get everything ready to go, pull out the biscuits.  Flatten them one at a time to about 1/8"
4. Put a small handful of chicken in the middle. (again, mine are funny shaped because they were crescent rolls)
5. Sprinkle the parmesan on the chicken and then add a small spoonful of marinara sauce.
6. Gather the edges and press together.  This is a difficult part because you don't want the bottom to be too thick or it won't cook thoroughly.
7. Place in the pan with the open end down.  Repeat until you have all 8 made. (or however many you're making)
8. Once they are all done, brush the tops with the beaten egg.  Sprinkle italian seasonings and some grated parmesan on top.
9. Bake for 20-25 mins. The dough can be a little less done in some places depending on how evenly you rolled them out.  The tops should be golden brown.
10.  Serve up with a side of marinara sauce to dip in.
