Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together chicken, mayonnaise, pecans, celery, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Roll biscuits into 6-inch circles. Place about 1/4 cup chicken mixture in center of each circle; fold dough over chicken mixture. Press edges with a fork or crimp to seal. Cut slits in tops of pies to allow steam to escape, if desired. Place pies on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden.
