Chicken and Biscuits

Chicken & Biscuits by NG @ Whats for Dinner?Whats better than chicken soup and fresh hot bread on a cold rainy night? Chicken and biscuits! A thick and creamy sauce topped with rich biscuits. Yummy!

Serves 4
1 pound of chicken
1 stock cube or 3 cups of stock
1 onion chopped
1 carrot chopped
1 large potato chopped
1 tsp oil
1 cup frozen peas
2 tsp butter or oil + 2 tsp more for biscuits
2 tsp flour
1 tsp mustard
1 cup Irish soda bread mix or biscuit mix
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp fresh tarragon (optional)
Salt and Pepper

Chicken and Veg
Bring the chicken to a boil in stock, cover and lower the heat. Cook for an hour. Remove the chicken, de-bone, shred and put in an oven safe pan. Keep the stock for the sauce, but put 1/2 cup of the stock in the frig to cool for the biscuits.

Brown the onion, carrots and potato in the oil. Add to the chicken.

2 tsp of butter or oil in a empty veg pan with 2 tsp of flour stir together and slowly add the hot stock (about 1 1/2 cups) mixing all the time. Add the mustard and herbs. Pour over the chicken and veg add the frozen peas and mix. Check the taste and add salt and pepper as needed.

Cut 2 tsp of butter in with Irish soda bread mix, add the cool stock a few drops at a time.
If using biscuit mix use the recipe on the box, but use the cool stock as the liquid. Should be a wet dough.
Spoon on top the the chicken and bake the whole thing at 185c or 365f for 30 min.

  1. I think I will try this with left over turkey. It looks wonderful.

  2. Made this last night for dinner with leftover turkey. Certain siblings of yours were skeptical of anything on your blog, but they had second helpings. Used soy milk that had gone somewhat bad mixed with bisquick for the topping and it worked well.
