A few days ago, I had really set you up with something fantastic: Chicken and Biscuits. This healthy chicken and biscuits dish is a creamy, cozy casserole that bridges the gap between a chicken pot pie and fluffy handmade biscuits—which is precisely where we should all be right now, according to the recipe!!
Give it a shot, you’ll love it!To Make this Recipe You’ Will Need the following ingredients:
2 large spoons.Of extra-virgin olive oil.
Sliced baby mushrooms, I used 8-ounces.
1½ garlic powder
½ Tsp.Of kosher salt
¾ Tsp.Of black pepper
¼ cup.Of all-purpose flour
2½ Cups.Of milk.
2 Cups.Of cooked and shredded boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
Frozen bag.Of mixed vegetables.
1 large spoon.Of chopped fresh thyme.
A can.Of refrigerated puff (biscuits) cookie dough.
Turn the temp of the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit = 200 degrees Celsius, and using a nonstick spray, you need to lightly coat an 8-10-inch or equivalent 2-and-a-half-quart baking dish.
Over medium-high heat, heat a large dutch oven or equivalent deep, heavy-bottomed pot until hot but not boiling. 1 tablespoon of oil should be added to the pan.
Then, you can stir periodically for 8 minutes, or until the mushrooms are starting to brown, until the pan is hot but not smoking, and the mushrooms are beginning to brown.
And now, combine the garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Cook for a further 3 minutes, or until the mushrooms have a deeper brown color and are tender.
After that, sprinkle the flour on top of the mushrooms and set them aside. Add the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of oil and mix well. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 to 2 minutes, or until any white pieces of flour have disappeared and the flour is light golden in color.
At this step, the mixture will seem to be dry. Pour the milk in slowly and steadily. Change to a whisk and continuously stir the mixture. Bring the mixture to a low, moderate boil, whisking constantly and scraping any brown pieces from the bottom of the pan as it cooks.
Continue to cook, whisking constantly, until the sauce has thickened and reduced by about half, about 7 minutes. Turn the heat down to a bare minimum.
Now, combine the chicken, frozen veggies, and thyme in a large mixing bowl, and you need to taste and season with more salt and pepper if desired. Pour the chicken mixture into the baking dish that has been prepared.
To finish, drop the biscuit dough by rounded spoonfuls over the top, ensuring that the biscuits are equally distributed over the surface.
