1. Chicken with Biscuits Casserole
For the casserole you will need:
4 tbsp unsalted butter
¼ cup flour
1 and ½ cup whole milk
1 and ½ cup of chicken broth
3 cups shredded chicken (cooked)
A 10-ounce package of mixed frozen veggies
2 tbsp chopped parsley
2 tbsp chopped chives
A tsp of salt
¼ tsp black pepper
One can of pre-made biscuit dough
Heat the oven to 425 degrees F. Use butter to coat a two-quart baking dish and then set aside. In a large pan melt the butter over medium heat. Add in the flour and mix until combined. Cook until the mixture is a golden brown color. Add in a bit of milk until smooth and then add in the rest of the milk. Next, mix in the chicken broth. Bring the mix to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer.
Stir constantly until it thickens. This takes about five to eight minutes. Remove the liquid from the heat and add in the parsley, chives, salt, pepper, chicken, and vegetables. Pour into the baking dish and smooth into an even layer. Separate the biscuit dough and place about an inch apart on top of the chicken mix. Bake for fifteen to eighteen minutes or until the biscuits are brown and the casserole is heated through.
