Skillet Chicken and Biscuit Dumplings

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by SheCooksToConquer

A very easy skillet adaptation of a great comfort food -- and with almost no clean-up since everything is in a single pan. This is yet another adaptation of a "My Great Recipes" card. The original recipe called for one cut-up chicken, I prefer to use just thighs. You can pick any pieces/parts you want. I'd stay away from boneless, though, I think it would dry out too much. (Please correct me if I'm wrong!)

Needed to use up thighs and drumsticks I had in the freezer and this worked perfectly. I used a lidless skillet and tried to substitute with tight foil as a lid. Not a good idea...half the biscuits were gooey. Learned my lesson ;)
