Creamed chicken with biscuits is a home-style classic, and the fun twist here is serving the chicken mixture in biscuit bowls made from refrigerated canned biscuits.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion (about 1 small onion)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 (10 3/4-ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 1/2 (16-ounce) package frozen peas and carrots, thawed
  • 1 (2-ounce) jar diced pimiento, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Biscuit Bowls

How to Make It

  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add 1/2 cup onion, 1/2 cup celery, and 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms, and sauté 2 to 3 minutes or until tender.

  2. Whisk in cream of chicken soup, 1/2 cup milk, and 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon; cook over medium-low heat 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 1 cup Cheddar cheese, stirring constantly, until cheese melts. Stir in cooked chicken, peas and carrots, diced pimiento, salt, and pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring often, 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

  3. Spoon warm chicken mixture evenly into Biscuit Bowls.
