Chicken & Biscuits Bake

80. The traditional Chicken & Biscuits is fluffy biscuits split and placed on a plate, then topped with a chicken gravy. Some recipes include vegetables in the chicken gravy, some do not. Epicurious has a Chicken and Biscuits recipe that is great!

My slight variation of Chicken & Biscuits was easy, quick and tasted just as great.

Chicken & Biscuits Bake

1 Tblsp olive oil
2 Tblsp butter
2 large carrots, peeled and diced
1 cob of corn, uncooked, cut from cob
1 cup peas, frozen or fresh
2 shallots, chopped
salt and pepper
parsley, chopped
Place oil and butter in pan and heat. Add shallots and saute 3 minutes. Add the vegetables, stir and add the remaining seasonings. Cover and simmer till vegetables are just about cooked.
4 chicken breasts
3 cups chicken stock
small shallot, peel and leave whole
salt and pepper
1 Tblsp corn starch
½ cup cold water

Place chicken, shallot and chicken stock in a saucepan. Add salt and pepper. Bring chicken to a boil. Allow chicken to cook till tender. Remove chicken, cut or tear into pieces. Bring the stock back to a boil. Mix the corn starch and cold water in a small bowl. Pour slowly into the boiling stock till it thickens to a gravy consistency. Check for seasoning.
Mix chicken back into the gravy and discard the whole shallot. Combine the vegetables with the chicken and gravy and stir all together. Pour into a 9 x 13 baking dish.
Make a batch of your favorite biscuits. Here is my Biscuit recipe. Cut biscuits and place
on top of the chicken and vegetables.
Melt 4 Tablespoons of butter and brush over top of the biscuits and sprinkle lightly with nutmeg.
Bake in a 350º oven for approximately 25-30 minutes or till the biscuits are light brown on the edges. Serve extra gravy on the side.
