WOW – Creamy Chicken and Biscuits

This recipe is really worth sharing, if I do say so myself!

Creamy Chicken and Biscuits

Ingredients for biscuits:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup milk

1/3 cup canola oil

Ingredients for chicken:

1/2 cup finely chopped onion (I used half a large onion)

1/4 cup butter

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)

1/8 teaspoon pepper

2 cups milk

1 chicken bouillon cube

1 large chicken breast, diced

1 tablespoon olive oil

dash paprika

1/4 teaspoon vegeta or seasoned salt

chopped fresh (or dried) parsley, to garnish

Directions:

1. In a medium skillet, combine 1 tablespoon olive oil and chicken.  Cook, stirring often, until chicken is done.  Season chicken with a dash of paprika and vegeta or seasoned salt.  Do not drain; set aside.

2. In a medium-large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt; add milk and oil.  Stir until the dough forms a ball.  Pick up the dough, and shape into a circle, about one and one-half inches thick. (The dough should be surprisingly easy to handle – not sticky.) Cut circle in 6 pieces to divide the dough to form biscuits.

4. Take the pieces of dough and form into circles about 3/4-inch tall. (If your pieces are slightly uneven, as mine are, you may need to re-distribute some of the dough.)

5. Place biscuits onto a lightly greased baking sheet, and bake at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.

Looks good enough to eat! 🙂

6. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute onion in butter until tender.  Stir in the flour, salt, and pepper, and bouillon cube until blended.  Gradually add milk; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes or until thickened.  Stir in chicken.

7. Split biscuits; top with creamy chicken.  Sprinkle with parsley.

Enjoy!

I'm Bonnie. I'm a pharmacy technician and new wife to Bogdan. I love cooking, usually without recipes. I love good sales and coupons, but haven't quite figured out the best way to find them. I make the typical new-wife mistakes and have burned my share of cookies. I like a cold house and a hot shower all year long.

    Oh, I pinned this! I’m going to use Pillsbury Grands from the freezer section as I really don’t enjoy baking! Gasp!
