"One of my family's favorite weeknight dishes. cazuhlke: I always use the frozen uncooked Grands biscuits and it turns out great ... just make sure that you don't uncover it too early. cathiemh: my husband is on salt restriction because of his heart and we have never had any problem with this recipe. The salt in the chicken is in the fat and skin, which you obviously remove and the broth cooks down nicely as well with the onions and peppers. I agree with Jenisl that you should really try something before giving such a low opinion."

"Not a tremendous amount of flavor but the family loved it."

"We really like this. My five year old daughter and picky husband said it was good. I used poached chicken breast. I sauteed the peppers and onion in oil and butter and added about a tablespoon of flour to create a roux. I used herbs de provence and parsley. I used a 32 oz. container of broth and it was not too much liquid. I did use 10 biscuits as was suggested by others. I defrosted them in the microwave a bit so I could cut them. It took 15-20 minutes to cook the biscuits all the way through. All in all pretty good. Might add carrots and celery next time. Very quick and easy."

"Could someone please clarify the biscuits? Are they the uncooked individually frozen ones (like Grands in the freezer department) and if so do you thaw so that you can cut into 6 pieces? Sounds quick and delicious but want to be sure I understand the biscuit part. Thanks."

"I'm giving this 5 stars even though I haven't tried it, just so I can balance out the negative person who has to give 1 star just to complain about a recipe they're not even going to try! Really people, if it's not something you would even want to eat, why bother even commenting! Go complain to someone who cares!"
