Chicken and Biscuits - Tutorial Tuesday

The weather was perfectly fall this weekend, and that called for some comfort food. I'm a super busy mom with three kids in two different schools and three sports schedules to organize each week. A quick weeknight dinner is a must - but I also want to to taste like I've spent all day preparing it. Enter: rotisserie chicken!

Throw this easy meal together in 15 minutes using rotisserie chicken and frozen biscuit dough for a quick, home cooked weeknight meal.

Chicken and Biscuits
recipe credit: Epicurious with some personal changes

Pop your biscuits in the oven according to the directions. While they bake, assemble the chicken in gravy.

Chicken in gravy

* 1 medium onion, finely chopped
* 1 carrot, finely chopped
* 1 celery rib, finely chopped
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
* 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
* 1 cup frozen peas
* 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
* 1 3/4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth (14 fl oz)
* 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
* 1/2 cup half-and-half
* 3 cups chopped cooked chicken (from a 3- to 3 1/2-lb rotisserie chicken)
* 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Cook onion, carrot, celery, salt, and pepper in butter in a 10-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in frozen peas and cook until thawed. Sprinkle flour over vegetables and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Stir in broth and thyme and bring to a boil, stirring, then boil over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes.

Add half-and-half and chicken to gravy and gently simmer until chicken is heated through, about 3 minutes. Stir in lemon juice.

Spoon the chicken mixture over biscuits or for chicken pot pie, place biscuits on top and bake according to directions.

  13. Made this tonight for the first time, sooooooo good. I used normal boneless chicken breasts and cooked them beforehand (that's what I had on hand) and dried thyme rather than fresh- otherwise kept same. We enjoyed it tons!!
