Chicken and Biscuits
We’re going old school today!
This meal is one of the first I ever learned to cook. My Aunt Micki made a cookbook for me after my first kid was born and this was in it. It was a favorite of her boys and has become a favorite of mine too.
I haven’t made it in years but last weekend I was doing my Sunday ritual of watching all the
trash reality shows on my DVR and cutting coupons and came across a coupon for the gravy mix this recipe calls for. My husband and all the kids were at the grocery store at the time so as soon as they walked through the door I jumped on them: “Do you remember that chicken and biscuits I used to make?! DO YOU?! I should make it this week, right? RIGHT?!” And they agreed because they had no other option.
It’s like chicken and dumplings but since the biscuits aren’t completely covered by the gravy, the tops actually bake up like biscuits. So it’s basically dumplings and biscuits in the same meal. My idea of heaven.
I always have the urge to add veggies to it to turn it into a pot pie-type dish but my husband won’t allow. I think it’s especially delicious with peas so if your family is into the veggies, definitely add them.
