"I had to use gluten free flour and it made it tasty funny. I'm sure it tasted great with regular flour."

"Wow - we all really liked this! Followed the recipe as written except I had to use canned corn and refrigerated biscuits because that's all I had in the kitchen. Added a dash of garlic powder, parsley and poultry seasoning, and reduced the basil to 1 tsp. And accidentally added 1 whole tsp of browning sauce which made the gravy look more like beef gravy (oops). My husband and I both really liked it as well as two kids age 14 and 8. Thanks for sharing the recipe - it's going into our rotation."

"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 recipe just became a new favorite! It's like a chicken pot pie, but better! The sauce is delicious. I eliminated the corn & replaced it with two small russet potatoes, chopped. And instead of frozen biscuits, I substituted Pillsbury Golden Layers Honey Biscuits. So good! ps - I only use 1/2 cup flour - a full cup is overkill."

"This recipe was very good and easy to make! I had the taste of chicken a la king without my having to go to the store to get evaporated milk. I think you could easily add diced potatoes to this to make it even heartier."

"I had never made chicken and biscuits before and this was a fantastic recipe! I added some fresh herbs (thyme, parsley, basil) but that was the only thing I changed! It was the perfect meal for a rainy day! Will make again!"
