My husband’s favorite meal is biscuits and gravy, and it’s probably one of my least favorite meals So tonight we had a compromise! I made a pot pie filling and we had it over biscuits so it was like a biscuits and gravy in a sense. It was really good and we all enjoyed it.
– 2 tbsp. butter
– 1 small onion, diced
– 3 carrots, diced
– 3 ribs celery, diced
– 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
– 2 cups chicken broth
– 1 1/2 cups milk
– 2 chicken breasts, diced and cooked
– 1/2 cup frozen peas
– salt, pepper, and celery seed seasoning, to taste
Biscuits (I just used refrigerated ones)
Preheat your oven to 400F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
Start by melting the butter in a large skillet with tall sides. Add the onions, carrots, and celery to the pan. Cook for about 3-4 minutes. Whisk in the flour until lightly browned, then gradually whisk in the chicken broth and the milk. Cook for about 2-3 minutes, whisking constantly, until the mixture is slightly thickened. Stir in the chicken and the peas, and season with the salt, pepper, and celery seed.
Add chicken mixture to your prepared baking dish and bake in your preheated oven for about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and while it is cooling, bake your biscuits. I just had to bump down my oven to about 350F for the biscuits.
Spoon filling over your baked biscuits and enjoy! 🙂
