Last night I decided to try out the recipe that I had been mentally working on for a few weeks beforehand. Country Style Chicken & Biscuits is what I decided to call it because it is made from layers of - mashed potatoes, country gravy with chicken and biscuits on top. I was so pleased that it was edible and apparently really good because my family even enjoyed it, seconds and leftovers today.
Country Style Chicken & Biscuits Recipe
Ingredients for a 13x9 pan:
3-4 chicken breasts (bite-sized)
6 servings of mashed potatoes
1 3/4 cups water
1/4 tsp salt divided
3 tbs unsalted
1 cups milk
2 cups mashed potato flakes
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
2 1/4 cup Bisquick mix
2/3 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a non-stick skillet add your chicken to cook. Then in a large skillet begin the gravy by heating the oil and whisking in the flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Slowly, whisk in the milk so no clumps form and continue to cook until gravy thickens. If the gravy is too thick for your liking than you can add more milk until it is to the consistency in which you enjoy. Once the chicken is completely cooked add it to the gravy including the juices to add a bit more flavor.
Now, make your mashed potatoes by heating all ingredients but the potato flakes in a microwave safe bowl for 4 1/2 minutes. Then add in potato flakes and fluff with a fork and than spoon the mashed potatoes into the bottom of the 13x9 pan spreading it out across the bottom. Now you can pour in the country gravy and chicken mix making sure that it to is level across the potatoes. In another bowl add the Bisquick and milk and mix until a stiff dough forms. Using two spoons add dollops of biscuit mix to the top of the gravy mixture. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the biscuits are done to your liking. Serve and enjoy!
I was really impressed with myself on how well this came out and that everyone even ate some the next day. It is definitely going to become one of those dishes that is a constant in the nightly dinner rotation menu. Hope you enjoyed this recipe and if you try it please let me know because I would love to know how it comes out for you.
Do you think you would make this? Or have you made anything similar to it?
