    Delicious! I left out the mushrooms because I don't like them and used a little extra of the peas and carrots. I also bought a rotisserie chicken which I cut up. These biscuits are definitely the best I have ever made! Don't cheat and buy the refrigerated tube; it's well worth the little bit of effort.

    This is a very good recipe. Because we like extra veggies I added frozen corn, fresh green beans ( cooked ) and substituted the pimentos for diced red bell pepper, from the garden. It also freezes very well. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

    Great recipe. I made mine in a cast iron skillet and just baked it in that as well. I used carrots, celery and onion; forgot all about the peas and pimientos, but we didn't miss it a bit. I loved the biscuit recipe and will be using it for my biscuits from now on! Very good meal for a chilly fall evening.

    This was not bad but in no way does it give you 8 servings. The 2 of us had it 2 nights in a row. I swapped out the 2% milk for 3/4 cup half and half and 1/4 cup of white wine and added 1/4 tsp black pepper and 1 clove of minced garlic.

    My favorite part of this recipe is that it's all home made. Right down to the biscuits. TY for sharing it. I hate when someone calls it a recipe, and all you do is open boxes and cans. I can do that all by myself ! Lol And we don't eat the preservatives or added salts and sugars and dyes.

    This is delicious! I made it last week and again yesterday! I make my own chicken stock, so herbs and seasoning go in there. I also always salt and pepper my onions and other vegetables that I slightly caramelize. I'd say I quadruple the recipe, I knew we'd love it that much! Leftovers are phenomenal too. I'm not big on mushrooms and since I'm the cook, haha, I left them out. I added potatoes, and this last time, my husband requested celery and corn also. I'd say any veggie you like would be a good addition! Other than that, I followed the recipe. Not making the biscuits as written, at least once, would be a shame, because they're delicious! If you make sure they're getting brown on top, they won't be underdone on the bottom or in the middle. All they are, are a baking powder biscuit. Creamed soups have MSG in them, bisquick or canned biscuits have so many preservatives, so why not make your own? This recipe is truly fabulous! Thank you Liliane!

    Can't wait to try this out! This is on my list for meals to make with my leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. Just a quick swap on the chicken and I know this will make for a delicious dinner!

    Was a rainy, windy, cool day today, so thought I would try this recipe. So glad I did!! Hubby and I both had sconds, it was so good. Will definitely be making this again. Neither of us like mushrooms, and I didn't have the pimientos, so I didn't use them. I only used 4 Tablespoons of butter to cook the veggies in and I added chopped celery. Otherwise followed the recipe.
