I made this tonight for supper, but I omitted the veggies, made my own biscuits, and forgot the paprika (Oops!). Since I didn't refrigerate the chicken mixture, I skipped the first 30 minutes of bake time, put the biscuits on top, and baked the dish for about 25 minutes. (For some reason, my biscuits didn't get done in fifteen.) I think next time, I may omit the sage. But other than that, it was really good. Thank you! UPDATE: Having made this several times now, I have settled on substituting an extra teapoon of Mrs. Dash for the thyme and sage. It works pretty well that way, in my opinion.
Yum! This is comfort food at it's finest. DD made it, and it was excellent. Easy, and very flavorful. Instead of refrigerator biscuits, I used MeanChef's homemade buttermilk biscuits. Great Meal!
Excellent recipe! I doubled the ingredients so we would have leftovers and it was perfect for 4 (the serves 6 was not enough for 4 in my opinion)
