I get frozen vegetables, simmer them with cream of chicken soup, then pour that over the biscuits. Doesn't get any easier!

I would actually give this 4 1/2 stars. Good and quick recipe. I cut the recipe in half for 3 of us and only used a scant 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil, which I thought was just right. I also made some drop biscuits instead of canned biscuits and added garlic powder and some evaporated milk to make it creamy.

I added more evap and water to leftovers the next day to eat it as a soup.

I doubled the amount of chicken, reduced the basil to 2 teaspoons but added 1 tsp of crushed dried rosemary. I used 1 and 1/2 cups of frozen seasoning mix (onions, celery, peppers, parsley) instead of the chopped fresh onion and celery, and used 1 cup of frozen peas and carrots instead of fresh carrots. Increased the broth to a 48 oz can and 1 14 oz can. Awesome flavor! I made it with rice and gave the family the option of having the biscuits or rice underneath.. most chose the rice, and ate the biscuits on the side.. Served 3 kids and 3 adults with big appetites.

I used reduced sodium chicken broth and then regretted it; I had to add salt to mine once done (and I normally don't add salt to anything), but my husband liked it the way it was.

This one is good for an all-in-one meal and easy.
