Easy Chicken and Biscuits



This is another recipe that lots of friends have asked me to share, so here it is! 
This is one of those good old standbys that is fast and easy to prepare. It's also 
a real comfort food that disappears quickly - there are never any leftovers! 
For this recipe, you can either cook your own chicken or use a prepared 
rotisserie chicken instead.







Ingredients

The meat from 1 precooked rotisserie chicken, chopped or shredded 
(OR if you prefer, you can cook your own chicken. You will need about 2 & 1/2 cups, which is about 3 breasts)
1 can Campbell's Cream of Chicken soup
1 can Campbell's Cream of Potato soup
1 & 1/2 cups of milk (I use 1% milk)
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 & 1/2 cups frozen broccoli florets
1 & 1/2 cups frozen veggie mix (I use one that has corn, carrots, peas and green beans)
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 can refrigerator biscuits

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Grease or spray a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. (Casserole or lasagna dishes work well for this recipe.)

In a large bowl (I use my KitchenAid mixer on the slowest speed for just a few seconds) combine the chicken soup, potato soup, milk, and shredded cheese, and mix until combined. Then add the broccoli, veggie mix, black pepper, and chicken. Mix again, until all ingredients are combined. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish and bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, until mixture is simmering.

While casserole is baking, prepare the biscuits. Because I use refrigerator biscuits for this recipe, they are often the large or grand size, so I cut each biscuit into quarters before I add them to the casserole. This way, they will bake quickly and evenly, and you won't be stuck with any that are uncooked in the centers, which can happen when you use large sized biscuits. I think the finished dish also looks nicer this way too!

When casserole is finished baking, remove from oven and lay the biscuits on top of the casserole. Return the casserole to the oven and bake, uncovered, for an additional 13 to15 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown. 


I use kitchen scissors to cut the "Grand" sized uncooked biscuits into quarters


This way, the biscuits will cook more evenly and thoroughly than if you put them on whole



Before going in the oven





Finished!



Delicious!

  1. Any idea how to do it without the Campbells? I've pretty much completely cut Campbells out of my diet due to the MSG. But I so envy the ability to cook meals so quickly!

    1. I guess you could make your own broth part starting with chicken stock but you'd have to research that!
