I brought this to a party, and it was a huge success! The only change I made, and this was only because I had to transport it from home to someone else's house, was I took a shortcut and used Pillsbury Grand Biscuits, which I put on top and baked in my hostess' oven when it was time to serve the entree's. I got a whole lot of compliments! I will definitely make it again at home with cornmeal biscuits!

Sooo delicious! I only put some of the buscuits on the top and just baked the rest on a cookie sheet. Definitely making this one again!!

Very good flavor. I would make less of the biscuits, as they soaked up so much of the juices. I made a half recipe of the biscuits which still made 8 generous biscuits and that seemed to work with the amount of meat and vegetables.
