Creamed Chicken ‘n’ Biscuits

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

    6 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add milk and oil. Stir until the dough forms a ball. On a lightly floured surface, knead 8-10 times or until smooth.
  • Roll or pat dough into a 6-in. square about 1 in. thick. Cut into six rectangles. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper until blended. Gradually add milk; bring to a boil.

    Very good. I plan to add slivered almonds and pimentos to the next batch for some crunch and color and to add a little variety of taste. I had the biscuits and chicken breast that needed to be used and I had all the ingredients so it was easy and quick!

    I had my own biscuit recipe, but the creamy chicken gravy was amazing! This is a favorite meal at our house!

    Made it today, and it was delicious! I added peas, and next time I make it I will make more of the yummy cream sauce. The biscuits were easy to make and very tasty!

    This was my first time making chicken and biscuits and it turned out great! I doubled the recipe and added peas. I also cooked my chicken breasts in my crockpot with cream of chicken soup on top and then shredded them.

    Simple and easy to make- tastes very good. I cheated and used Pillsbury biscuits, so it was even easier.
