Southern Chicken and Biscuits*

Southern Chicken and Biscuits (recipe via thenovicechefblog.com)

It has taken it’s sweet time, but Fall has finally found Florida. This week it has been cool enough to finally wear my new boots! They have been hanging out in the back of my closet just waiting for me to finally show them off.

I will only make Chicken & Biscuits when it’s cold outside…it’s one of those meals that is only good when there is a chill in the air. So it seemed meant to be when my new Pampered Chef Rockcrok showed up on my doorstep. They have a lot of new products, but I was most excited about this everyday pan. It’s the perfect size (2.5 qts) for a recipe like Chicken & Biscuits.

There is room for the chicken and sauce — with plenty of space for the biscuits to bake on top. It is able to stand heats up to 752°F, so it can easily go from stove top to the oven (which is a must in this recipe to cook the biscuits). Plus, the best part for me, it’s dishwasher safe! No scrubbing!

Chicken and Biscuits is one of my favorite stick to your bones recipe. No one will leave the table hungry after this one! If you have never had it before, it’s kind of like chicken pot pie or chicken and dumplings…but with biscuits on top!

I add green onions and parsley to my drop biscuits and it gives this dish an extra kick of flavor. If you are a green pea person — add them to this dish when you add the chicken. Much to my mother’s chagrin, I still hate green peas and will never add them to my Chicken and Biscuits. ;-)

This recipe is kid approved, man approved…and after a little accident today — I found out it’s also dog approved. While the ingredients list looks a little daunting, I promise it’s an easy dish that the whole family will enjoy!

Southern Chicken and Biscuits

Yield: 4-6 servings

recipe note: I like to use a rotisserie chicken for this recipe. It is the perfect amount of chicken and cuts down on my cooking time. But you could also buy chicken breasts and boil/roast them and then shred the meat.

Ingredients:

6 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups chopped yellow onion (about 1 large yellow onion)
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup peeled and chopped carrots (about 3 large carrots)
1/2 cup flour
2 cups 2% milk
1 cup chicken stock
3 cups shredded cooked chicken
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

for the drop biscuits:
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 stick cold unsalted butter, diced
3/4 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 green onions, minced

Directions:

In a Pampered Chef Rockcrok, melt the butter. Add the garlic, onion, celery and carrots and saute over medium heat until softened - about 10 minutes.

Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Add the milk and chicken stock to the sauce. Simmer over low heat for another minute, stirring, until thick. Add the chicken and season to taste with salt and pepper. Turn heat to low and let simmer while you make your biscuits.


Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a food processor, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and pepper. Add the butter and pulse until the butter is the size of peas. Add the milk and pulse until a dough forms. Mix in the parsley and green onions.

Drop the biscuit dough in 1/4 cup sized dollops onto the top of the chicken mixture (this will make about 6 large biscuits). Place the Pampered Chef Rockcrok into the preheated oven and bake for 18-20 minutes, until the biscuits are golden. Serve immediately.

    I definately need to try this recipe soon. I make something similar in the oven, but the crockpot sounds much easier. It is perfect for the cooler fall weather!

    I’m guessing that using something like a large enameled dutch oven might work as well?

      Yup! A dutch oven will work as well!

    would this work in a regular crock pot?

    • Jessica replied: — October 28th, 2013 @ 9:40 pm

      I would not use a crockpot, but instead a heavy stock pot or a dutch oven! :-)

    I just bought a RockCrok this week at a Pampered Chef party. I love the look of it!

    And I made this recipe yesterday in it for Sunday dinner with my family – there were ZERO leftovers! We all LOVED this! It’s now going into our weekly menu rotation!

    That crock looks great, but I have to say – I adore my pampered chef wooden spoons! I saw yours and that’s what I got excited about. I’m strange like that. :) Chicken and biscuits is one of my favorite comfort foods and this looks so perfect!!

    I really appreciate that you make “normal” recipes that don’t always have 800 ingredients that don’t even really go together. That’s really trendy in food blogs these days I guess, but yours are so much more manageable. Love your blog :)

    • Jessica replied: — November 4th, 2013 @ 12:52 pm

      This is the best comment I have received in a long time. It’s nice to hear that someone notices that I try to keep it real. Thank you Elizabeth for totally making my day!
