chicken and biscuit casserole

A yummy homecookin' dish for the cooler weather. This has been one of our favorites for awhile. I found it on allrecipes.com. It looks like a bit of work but it comes together pretty easily... and it's worth the effort! I usually just buy a rotisserie chicken to save some time.

Come on Joy and Katie! You can handle manhandling the bird! ;)

Chicken and Biscuit Casserole

1/4 c butter
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 c chopped onion
1/2 c celery
1/2 c chopped carrots
1/2 c all-purpose flour
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
2 (14.5 oz.) cans chicken broth
1 (10 oz.) can peas, drained
4 c cooked chicken, diced
2 c buttermilk baking mix
2 tsp dried basil
2/3 c milk

*Preheat oven to 350*

*Lightly grease a 9 x 13 baking dish.

*In a large skillet, melt butter over medium high heat. Cook and stir the garlic, onion, celery & carrots in the butter until tender. Mix in the flour, sugar, salt, 1 teaspoon dried basil and pepper.

*Stir in broth and bring to a boil. Stirring constantly, boil for one minute, reduce heat and stir in peas. Simmer 5 minutes, then mix in the chicken. Transfer mixture to the baking dish.

*In a medium bowl, combine the baking mix and 2 teaspoons dried basil. Stir in the milk to form a dough. Divide the dough into 12 balls. On floured surface, flatten each ball into a circle. Place on top of chicken mixture.

*Bake for 30 minutes. Cover with foil and bake an additional 10 minutes. To serve, spoon chicken mixture over biscuits.
