Creamy Chicken Biscuit Casserole

Creamy Chicken Biscuit Casserole

Sometimes you just need a warm bowl of comfort food.

This is the kind of meal I want when the weather starts getting colder. Chicken and veggies in a creamy sauce are just the right pairing for fresh baked biscuits. The biscuit topping will soak up some of the sauce underneath them, taking on a dumpling like texture on the bottom, then brown up nicely on top.

I like to leave the biscuits pretty rustic looking. Just pat the dough out into a rectangle and cut it into squares. The benefits are that it dirties less dishes, saves time, and doesn’t waste any dough. I think it looks nice too.


I’ve found that even picky eaters love this Creamy Chicken Biscuit Casserole. All four of my kids ate this without complaining, which is a win around here!

This hearty casserole makes quite a few servings, so you may even have enough for leftovers!

For the Creamy Chicken:

  2. Cut butter into flour mixture until the pieces of butter are no larger than a pea.
