Ingredients Needed for this Chicken and Biscuits Casserole Recipe:

Chicken Filling

  • Onion-Adding onion gives this casserole a wonderful base flavor.
  • Garlic-Onion and garlic go together so wonderfully.
  • Cream of Mushroom {or chicken} Soup-A perfect ingredient to use as a sauce thickener.  Cream of mushroom or chicken would both work great in this recipe.
  • Chicken Broth-I always recommend a low sodium variety.
  • Milk-You could substitute the milk for heavy cream or half and half if you want a richer filling.
  • Salt & Pepper-I have given a base measurement but this can be adjusted to what you and your family prefer.
  • Thyme-Chicken and thyme go together like peanut butter and jelly in my opinion.
  • Frozen peas and carrots-A great way to add vegetables to this filling without having to prep any in advance.
  • Cooked Chicken-I have made it with both chopped and shredded chicken.  It is a preference as to what you prefer.

Cheesy Biscuits

  • Bisquick-Or any pancake mix that you have on hand.  I like Bisquick because the flavor is always spot on.
  • Buttermilk-Regular milk can be substituted but buttermilk gives the biscuits a wonderful taste and texture.
  • Grated Cheese-Everything’s better with a little cheese and these biscuits are no exception.
  • Dried Parsley-Adding dried parsley to these biscuits gives them beautiful flecks of color.
  • Butter-Melted and brushed on top of the baked biscuits, this is the perfect finishing touch.
  • Garlic Powder-Added to the melted butter for a little extra flavor.

How to make Chicken and Biscuits with Bisquick {pancake mix}

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, add olive oil. Once warm, add the diced onion and cook until translucent {about 3-4 minutes}. Add minced garlic and continue to cook for an additional 30 seconds.
  2. While the onions are cooking, combine the cream of mushroom soup, chicken broth and milk in a bowl and whisk to combine. Add to the onion mixture. Then add the salt, pepper and thyme. Stir until the mixture is warm.
  3. Once the mixture is warmed through add the peas and carrots, along with the chicken and stir until everything is evenly distributed.
  4. Pour the mixture into your prepared 9×13 baking pan. Put into the oven uncovered while you are working on your biscuit mixture.
  5. Combine Bisquick, shredded cheese and dried parsley, stir to combine. Add buttermilk and stir until everything is incorporated {but don’t over mix}. Remove the pan from the oven and divide the dough into 8 pieces. Form them into a disc shape with your hands and place them on top of the casserole.
  6. Put in the oven for an additional 15-18 minutes or until the biscuits are cooked through and starting to brown on the top. The final step is to combine the melted butter and garlic powder. Remove the casserole from the oven and immediately brush the garlic butter over the biscuits. Serve warm.

What kind of chicken should I use for this casserole?

The only requirement for this casserole is that the chicken is cooked ahead of time.  I have used leftover chicken from the night before, a rotisserie chicken, pre cooked and pre shredded chicken from the meat section of the grocery store and even canned chicken.

The best in my opinion is either the leftover or rotisserie chicken.  I love being able to use the leftovers a second time and rotisserie chicken is really so inexpensive and convenient.

5 Top Tips for making Easy Chicken and Biscuits Casserole

This casserole is EASY to make but there are a few things that I think could help when you are making it.

  • If you happen to have a large ovenproof skillet, use it and then you don’t have to transfer the filling to a baking dish.  I am always all about saving dishes where I can.
  • Use low sodium chicken broth.  It really does make a difference and it allows you to control the amount of salt you add to the filling.
  • Don’t thaw the peas and carrots before adding them to the filling.  It is an extra step that you don’t need to do because they will thaw in the filling so fast.
  • Use buttermilk for the biscuits.  If you don’t have buttermilk, make your own!  Add 2 teaspoons of vinegar or lemon juice to 2/3 of milk and let it sit for a few minutes and voila…you have buttermilk.
  • If you are having a hard time being sure the biscuits are baked then check them just like you would a cake.  Use a toothpick and insert it in the center of the largest biscuit.  If it comes out clean you are good to go.

Make Ahead Tips

  • Make the filling up to 3 days in advance.  Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • When it is time to bake, pour the filling into your casserole dish {if it isn’t already} and sit the filling on the counter while you oven preheats.  This will allow it to come to room temperature a bit and take a little less time in the oven.
  • Bake the filling for about 15 minutes before adding the biscuits to the top.  It is important that the filling is warm, that way the biscuits will cook evenly and quickly.

Storing your Chicken and Biscuits Casserole

Chicken and Biscuits Casserole will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days if it is covered well.  To reheat, put the casserole in a preheated 350 degree oven {covered with foil} for about 25 minutes.  The last 5 minutes remove the foil.  This will allow the biscuits to brown a bit.

I don’t recommend freezing this casserole because of the cream filling.  When a cream based sauce freezes it can sometimes separate.
