Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups chicken broth or stock
  • 5 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 3 cups biscuit/baking mix
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup roasted sweet red peppers, drained and chopped

Directions

Preheat oven to 425°. In a 6-qt. stockpot, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery and carrots; cook and stir 3-5 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; cook and stir 1 minute longer. Stir in flour, salt and pepper until blended; gradually whisk in broth. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir over medium heat 4-6 minutes or until thickened. Add chicken.
Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine biscuit mix and milk just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 8-10 times. Roll dough into a 12x8-in. rectangle. Sprinkle with cheese and peppers. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut crosswise into 1-in.-thick slices. Place on top of hot chicken mixture. Bake, uncovered, 15-20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.
Freeze option: Cool baked casserole; cover and freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 425°. Bake casserole, covered, 40 minutes or until heated through and a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°.
Yield: 12 servings.

"Halved this recipe to use up some leftover chicken and was happy with it. I'm thinking that I will make the full version for a potluck sometime."
