Creamed Chicken 'n' Biscuits Recipe
We have a dairy farm and three young children, so I'm always on the lookout for easy, hearty meals like this one. Using leftover or canned chicken, I can whip up this entree in minutes. To save even more time, I sometimes serve the hot chicken mixture on buns.—Shari Zimmerman Deford, Michigan
