Enjoyed this! Used Healthy Breakfast Biscuit (260447) recipe and omitted the sugar. Also added extra veggies (green beans and broccoli) and I did saute the onion also.

I didn't have carrots so used potatoes, and I substituted Buillion for the stock. I sauteed the onions per the previous reviewers suggestion. The only addition I made was a bit of hungarian paprika and milk. We love so I used it whenever possible, and it worked really well here! The only think I would do next time is make some extra sauce. I think the potatoes stretched it a bit too thin. It was really good though. My 4 year old gobbled it up so it will be added to my regular fall/winter rotation. And mine took more like 15 minutes to cook but that is probably bc of my biscuit recipe. Here is the recipe I used. Fast, easy, and yummy biscuits!

This is very much comfort food. My 5 yr old daughter loved it. I poached my chicken breasts in chicken broth and added a bay leaf for seasoning. I would saute the chopped onion next time and add a little poultry seasoning. Thanks for posting.
