This homemade chicken and biscuit casserole is comfort food at its best.
Creamy gravy with chunks of chicken and pieces of carrot and celery. Then topped with fluffy biscuits - it's a treat that will be requested often.
CHICKEN CASSEROLE WITH BISCUITS
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
1/2 cup carrots, sliced
1/2 cup onion, chopped
3/4 cup potatoes, sliced
1 TBS homemade garlic powder
1 TBS homemade onion powder
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups water
4 chicken bouillon cubes
4 cups cooked chicken meat, chopped
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees and spray a casserole dish with vegetable oil; set aside.
Heat the butter in a large skillet and add the celery, carrots,
onion and potatoes. Season with the garlic and onion powder.
Saute until tender.
Add the flour, water and bouillon and bring to a slow boil. Cook and stir for one minute, then reduce heat. Add green beans and chicken. Cook until heated through. Pour mixture into casserole dish.
Top the casserole with biscuits and bake for 30 minutes. Cover
and bake another 10 minutes. Spoon mixture into a bowl and top with a
biscuit. Serve with a fresh salad topped with my creamy
homemade salad dressing.
Instead of using the flour, water and chicken bouillon cubes, you may use 2 cans homemade cream of chicken soup and 1/2 cup milk.
You may also purchase refrigerated biscuits for the top, or use Bisquick.
