Chicken and biscuits might seem like an odd combination but it’s actually makes a beautiful dish. Here’s how to make this delicious and filling dinner for this week:


  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot, cut into 1/3-inch chunks
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 1/4 cups plus 1 tablespoon self-rising flour
  • 2 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 3 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1/2 cup frozen baby peas
  • 1 tablespoon chopped sage
  • 1 tablespoon chopped thyme
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 220°. In a large casserole pot, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the shallots, mushrooms and carrot chunks and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until the shallots and mushrooms are softened (about 8 minutes). Add the wine and cook until completely evaporated. Stir in the 1 tablespoon of flour and the broth and bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer until thick, about 3 minutes. Stir in the chicken and peas.
  2. In a food processor, combine the remaining 1 1/4 cups of flour with the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter and the chopped sage and thyme; pulse 5 times. Add the milk; pulse just until a soft dough forms.
  3. Using a small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, scoop 20 balls of dough over the chicken stew. Bake in the center of the oven for 25 minutes. Turn on the broiler and broil for 1 to 2 minutes, until the biscuits are golden. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

  1. Another easy one that’s so yum!! 6 chicken thighs, 3 onions. Salt. Cut into pieces, fry until cooked. Add container sour cream. Stir, heat & serve. So nice.

  2. Please don’t kill innocent chickens just for your meal! It is really cruel and unnecessary. There are such a lot of alternatives rather than killing innocent creatures!
