Canned Chicken I used

Remember my search for a great chicken pot pie recipe?  Well I think this may suffice.

Croutons I used
Crushing up some croutons

Originally from the Gooseberry Patch Homestyle Family Favorites Cookbook, this recipe is similar to a chicken pot pie with the crunchy biscuit topping and yummy veggie filled filling.  I did opt out on the mushrooms but included everything else.  And this dish sure did hit the spot!

Crunchy Biscuit Chicken fresh from the oven

It is easy to make and deliciously filling.  It doesn’t reheat too bad either.  Serve with a side salad with homemade croutons to round out the meal.  What a great dish for a chilly night, rainy day or even if you’re feeling under the weather, this recipe is the ticket!
