I friend asked on facebook today for recipes she could make and freeze ahead of time because she is expecting a new little one really soon. I sent her this recipe because it is so good, so easy and one of my family favorites. I then realized I have never shared it on my blog so....here it is!!
1/4 C. butter
1/3 C. flour
Dash of pepper (or to taste)
1 (10-1/2 oz) can of condensed chicken broth (I use Campbell's with the red and white label)
3/4 C. milk
2 C. cubed cooked chicken. I just get a rotisserie chicken and use the remaining chicken for something else.
1 C. frozen peas
1 C. baby carrots
1/3 C. chopped onions
1 (12 oz.) can Hungry Jack Biscuits
Melt better in a large pot, stir in flour and pepper and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly, until smooth and bubbly. Gradually stir in broth and milk. Cook until mixture boils and thickens, stirring constantly.
Add chicken, peas, carrots and onions. Cook until hot and bubbly.
pour into 9x13 casserole pan and put into a 375 degree oven.
When mixture starts to bubble, add biscuits to the top.
Bake (approx) 20 minutes or until biscuits are brown on top.
I usually double the recipe because my 9x13 is deep. I just make sure to put foil or a cookie sheet on the oven rack below in case of spills.
You can use any veggies you like. Broccoli works great. But my family likes the peas and carrots. You can also put some celery in if your family likes that.
It is so good and so easy. Talk about comfort food.....and the men in the family will love it!!!
