In planning for Sunday dinner after church, I was craving something creamy, with chicken, biscuits, and a bit of cheese. I didn’t have anything quite like that in my repertoire. But slowly an idea formed. I took this recipe:
And used chicken instead of ham. Instead of the “parsley pinwheels”
…which I didn’t usually make anyway (I usually used canned biscuits — the flaky kind is best — without parsley), I used the biscuit topping from this recipe:
It was perfect. It was exactly like I imagined it.
The only flaw was that it sat in the oven for 10-15 minutes before I realized the oven hadn’t been turned on. 😳 🙄 So the biscuit topping sank into the casserole a little more than it would have otherwise. And it took a little too long for a Sunday meal — we get out of church later than we’re used to and we have a 20 minute drive home. But otherwise it’s great for a cozy winter dinner.
Now, what to call it? Creamy Chicken with Cheesy Biscuits is a bit bulky. Chicken-Cheese-Biscuit Casserole is a bit stark. But whatever it’s called — I’m glad it turned out so well and hit the spot.
Wow, that really looks delicious! I may give it a try this week.
Looks nummy! 🙂 I combined a couple of recipes a long time ago and came up with an awesome chocolate-chocolate-chocolate cake. Whee!
WoW! You’re getting adventuresome in your more mature years, aren’t you? : ) I know that I have always been very cautious to experiment with recipes, but I am a little more willing to take a “risk” and use what I have available to make a recipe work. This looks yummy, and I’m glad it worked for you.
Creamy and chicken. Yummy!
I made a very similar meal on the 11th! I took the wonderful thick soup left from our Sunday homemade chicken and dumplings (we’d eaten all the dumplings on Sunday!), and I thickened it a bit more, added some frozen peas, poured it in a baking dish and covered it with croissant dough (from the tube, but I didn’t “roll” them! Yummy!
This looks really good!!! I wonder if it work with gluten free Bisquick? I may have to give it a shot. Thanks for sharing!
This looks like a perfect, comforting winter meal. I love when mixing recipes yield a yummy outcome and doesn’t have to be thrown out!!!
