Ingredients

1 cup sliced carrots
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup chopped sweet onion
1/2 (8-oz.) package fresh mushrooms, quartered
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 cups shredded or diced cooked chicken
1 cup self-rising soft wheat flour
1/2 cup whipping cream

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°. Microwave carrots and 2 Tbsp. water in a microwave-safe glass bowl at HIGH 1 to 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain. Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat; add onion, and sauté 2 minutes. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes. Add beans and carrots, and cook 2 minutes. Sprinkle all-purpose flour, salt, and pepper over vegetables. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute or until smooth. Gradually stir in broth; cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, 8 to 10 minutes or until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Stir in chicken. Stir together self-rising flour and cream just until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 3 or 4 times. Pat or roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 3-inch round cutter to make 4 biscuits, reshaping once, if necessary. (Do not twist cutter as you cut.) Place 4 (10-oz.) ovenproof bowls in a jelly-roll pan. Divide hot chicken mixture among bowls, and top each with a biscuit. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.
