    Annacia's Note:

    Homey and old-fashioned, this comforting dish can be on the table in a flash, thanks to store-bought rotisserie chicken and biscuits made with self-rising flour. This is a modernized version of the recipe that was home cookin' to my Texas family.

      Delicious! This is comfort food at its best. Quick and easy to make, this was a big hit at my house. I doubled the gravy ingredients to give us lots of sauce, and because we like our sauce a little on the thicker side, I added more flour to get the consistency that we like. The dough for the biscuits was very sticky and a little hard to work with, but stick with it and it will come together. After removing the biscuits from the oven, I brushed the tops with butter to soften and add extra flavor. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper! **Made for Culinary Quest -Suitcase Gourmets**

      What a wonderful recipe! I didn't have any left over chicken so I just cooked up some chicken theigh strips with some spicy seasoning (we like spice!) and since I had some leftover biscuits from the morning, used those instead. Still came out amazing! The gravy is perfect in this recipe!
