Chicken and Biscuits

Chicken and Biscuits are one of the quickest and most comforting dishes you can whip up in the kitchen. When all else fails for dinner, we can usually muster up a good skillet full of this delicious, creamy goodness! Everyone has their method for this classic recipe and we’ve found that making it a Chicken and Biscuit Casserole is the way to go.

You have to be careful with other chicken and biscuit preparations. Cook it too long and you overcook your chicken or turn your biscuits into a mush. Making it a casserole with a delicious Pillsbury Grands top layer keeps your biscuits firm, flakey, and buttery! The casserole form also makes it easy to get a little bit of everything in each scoop, which is always a plus.

How to prepare our Chicken and Biscuits recipe

Get your frozen ingredients thawing on the counter. While those are getting to room temp, take the time to cut your chicken and dice your onions.

When everything’s thawed and prepped, we can properly get started! First, optionally melt a little pat of butter in a saute pan before tossing your diced onions.

Once those have softened up and picked up some color, you can add the rest of our casserole fillings. Toss your frozen veggies and potatoes, chicken pieces, and poultry seasoning into the pan along with a little splash of water. Allow these ingredients to warm through for about 5-10 minutes before adding the cream of chicken soup. Cook for another 5 minutes before setting aside.

That’s our filling dealt with: now, we have to deal with biscuits. Instead of putting whole biscuits on top of our casserole, we’re going to quarter our biscuits and use those instead.

With everything all ready, we can do our final casserole assembly. First, pour your chicken filling into a casserole dish.

Then, put your biscuit quarters in a single layer on top of the filling.

Give your Pillsbury Grands a quick brush with some melted butter. Just a bit more delicious, buttery flavor!

From here, all that’s left is to bake. Put your Chicken and Biscuits Casserole into a 400 degree oven and allow to bake for 10 minutes.

Once those 10 minutes are through, cover the top of your casserole with some aluminum foil. Allow the Chicken and Biscuits to cook for another 15 or so minutes.

Once those 15 minutes are through or your biscuits are a lovely golden brown, your casserole is ready! Optionally give your biscuits one last brushing of melted butter before scooping out a portion and enjoying it!

    Ive made this a a bunch of times and never remembered where I got the recipe. I make mine without potatoes and I use california blend veggies instead. So good.

    The biscuits were raw on the underside. I tried cooking them for longer, 45 min total, and the tops were cooked (probably too much) and the bottoms were still raw. Not even like chicken and dumplings when you used canned biscuits in the broth, but straight up raw sticky dough.

  3. What a freaking mess! Recipe says to use a “small” casserole dish. Bull$&:@. It was clear it wouldn’t fit in a small dish so I used a medium and it boiled all over my oven and made my house smell for two days. Thanks a lot!

    This wonderful recipe. I like chicken, biscuit, and all ingredients. But I think I’m not skillful to practice this recipe. I have to show my wife how delicious this chicken and biscuits, then ask her cook.
