    Such an easy recipe to make. I added leftover vegetables (black eyed peas) to the mixture which upped the flavor even more.

    This was VERY easy to make and very flavorful. I used gluten-free flour in the biscuits and chicken mixture with great results. Comforting, filling and delicious!

    This turned out good. I did add salt, butter and extra veggies to the filling. I also made extra biscuit dough and used melted butter instead of oil.

    Maybe it was just me?? But we didn't care for this recipe at all with the exception of the biscuits and we made this as the recipe stated. Eh, we just weren't fans.

    This was quick to make and assemble. Most ingredients everyone already has. Recipe also lends itself to substitutions if need be. We really enjoyed it tremendously! Nice mellow flavor, sure to please most. Biscuits toasted up light brown just like the photo. And it's a meal in one dish! Gotta love dat! Try it!

    Have made this however it's been some time. Casseroles are easy for us, especially for leftovers.

    It's really good however I made a few tweaks...first no frozen mixed veg...I diced baby carrots and added some frozen cooked peas. Also I sauteed onions and 2 TB garlic together with 2 TB of butter and added the spices.Also I used Pillsbury southern style buttermilk biscuits. I baked for 15 mins uncovered then 15 mins covered to make sure the biscuits didn't burn and turned out perfect.

    Easy to make! Delicious! I add cream of chicken soup to the mixture as well as diced potatoes(right from the can), just to add a little something extra!

    Delicious! Although I always cook 1 lb raw cubed chicken with the onions, increase flour to 1/3 cup to thicken a little bit more, use 3 tbsps parmesan roman cheese and add salt to taste.
