I make this very often. It's one of the first recipes I made when I got married and I'm still making it. It's great for using up left over chicken and very easy to make. This is a favorite in our house!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a 11x7 baking dish and set aside.
  3. Chop the onion and saute in butter until tender in a large skillet.
  4. Combine all the rest of the ingredients in with the onions except the cheese and biscuits.
  5. Spoon mixture into prepared dish and bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven.
  7. Arrange biscuits on top and sprinkle cheese over everything.
  8. Bake until biscuits are golden brown and sauce is bubbly. (About 20 minutes longer).
  9. Helpful tip: If you are in a hurry, use biscuits that are already cooked. Just set them in the mixture and cook for about 5 or 10 minutes instead of 20. They will soften and you can never tell the difference!

Just as I thought, you only publish the reviews that say it is a great recipe. My response was far from favorable and I suppose that is why it didn't get published. I will remember that the next time i look at one of your recipes and decide NOT to make it.

I love what the pimento did to the dish-we all did! I made half the recipe giving me 3 1-cup servings but made my biscuits on the side. Served with a green salad. Made for Family Picks, ZWT5.

Originally reviewed on Jun 18, 2008. Edited on Aug 30, 2008 to fix typos. Finally a recipe like this that doesn't contain peas and carrots. This is exactly what I have been looking for, for a long time. A kind of Chicken and Dumplings recipe baked in the oven that is easy to make. I made it with chicken thighs. I didn't cook them ahead of time. I poured the gravy into a square baking dish and put the two thighs on it on one side of the baking dish. It worked out really well. I will definitely be making this whenever I am in the mood for it. It is comfort food. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for ZWT-4 Eastern Europe.
