FOR THE FILLING:
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 cup half-and-half
- ⅓ cup butter
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 cup peeled and chopped carrots
- 1 cup chopped celery
- ½ cup flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- 4 cups cooked, diced or shredded chicken
- ½ cup frozen peas (not thawed)
FOR THE BISCUITS:
- 2 cups Bisquick
- ⅔-¾ cup cold buttermilk (or sub with regular milk)
- ½ cup grated cheddar cheese
- ¼ teaspoon dried parsley
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder
- Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a 2 ½ – 3-quart casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together chicken broth and half-and-half. Set aside.
- Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrot, and celery; sauté for 10 minutes. Add flour and continue cooking and stirring for 1 more minute. Reduce heat to medium and gradually stir in the chicken broth mixture.
- Continue cooking over medium heat, stirring regularly, until thick and bubbly (about 5-6 minutes). Make sure that the mixture doesn’t boil. Stir in the salt and pepper. Add chicken and frozen peas.
- Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for about 10 minutes while you prepare the biscuit dough.
- Use a fork to stir together the Bisquick mix, buttermilk, cheese and parsley until a soft dough forms. Start with ⅔ cup of buttermilk, and gradually add more (if needed) to bring the dough together. It shouldn’t be too wet, but you don’t want any dry pockets of flour.
- Remove the chicken mixture from the oven, take off the cover, and give the filling a stir. Use a scoop to drop about ¼-cup of the biscuit dough (or even slightly less) at a time onto the hot chicken mixture. You should have about 8 biscuits on top of the dish. You can use a larger scoop to drop 6 biscuits on top, but these larger biscuits will take longer to bake through.
- Return dish to the oven and bake, uncovered, for about 12 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in a biscuit comes out clean. If the biscuits start to get too dark on top before they’re cooked through, just tent loosely with aluminum foil and continue baking.
- Stir together melted butter and garlic powder; brush over warm biscuits and serve.
