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

"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!"

"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!"

Reviewed Jan. 2, 2010

"This was very good. I felt the amount of basil was just a bit much. And will probably use some milk for a creamier texture next time I make it. I did not have browining sauce and used Pillsbury Grands instead of freezer biscuits. My husband LOVED it. Therefore, this recipe is a 'keeper'."

"This is my favorite recipe for chicken n Biscuits. It is so easy to prepare and very tasty! My whole family loves it and asks me to make it often."

Reviewed May. 19, 2009

"This was very good comfort food! However, I felt that 3 teaspoons of dried basil was way too much -next time, I'll go with 1/2-1 teaspoon. I didn't use the browning sauce and I added salt and pepper to taste. My husband actually complimented me on it (which is saying a lot!) so we will definitely make this again with these minor changes."
