Now THIS is comfort food! DH and I had exhausted ourselves all day on renovation projects, but we had this wonderful dish as dinner. Earlier in the day, I'd poached two chicken breasts in water, white wine, spices, garlic, peppercorns, and salt, and then refrigerated them until I was ready to make the dish. I made this exactly as directed, except I didn't have pimentos, so I diced half a red pepper instead. It baked for between 45-50 minutes in my oven, and it was spectacular! Creamy, savory, delicious. We both liked the red pepper, which added the crunch, and I might add a tad more sour cream, but this really is great all on its own. The contrast of the biscuits (almost like crispier dumplings) and the wonderful filling is just heavenly. We served it with buttered corn, and a nice red wine. I'm looking forward to making this for friends - this is really excellent, and I highly recommend it. Thanks, TGirl!
This was a nice dish. My supermarket only had lemon pepper and bbq chicken available so I bought boneless skinless chicken breasts and seasoned them and drizzled with butter and then baked them. The biscuits were extra nice. I would like to try this dish again with warmer weather on the way, cold--leaving the egg out of course, and cooking the biscuits separately as drop biscuits and serve with a big glass of iced tea. Nice flavored dish. Peggy in TX
