"A hint of curry gives this stew its special flavor," writes Elmeda Johnson of Williston, North Dakota. "Topped with tasty moist biscuits, it's a favorite with my family."

    I didn't have curry and I swapped out the flour for GF rice flour blend but otherwise the family enjoyed it!

    Loved this recipe! Been trying to eat less cholesterol and this one has 68gs. Serving size was plenty, though I did use pilsbury pre-made bisuits. I also used all chicken broth instead of the 1/4 cup water. The slight curry taste makes this amazing. Will be doing this again, and recomending this to family.

    I use a ToH recipe that is very similar to this one that is done in the crock pot. I have not made this one yet. Was just curious if anyone has used refrigerated or frozen biscuits or made them with bisquick as a "quick fix" rather than making the biscuits from scratch???
