This week I'm sharing another recipe that I tried that was another winner at our house.
The original pin:
Potsie's Creamed Chicken and Biscuits Casserole
1 small onion
1 1/2 tsp butter
2 lbs. chopped cooked chicken breasts or 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 cup milk
1/2 cup chooped pimiento or 1/2 cup sauteed red bell peppers or 1/2 cup jarred roasted red pepper
1 1/2 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350. Grease the bottom and sides of an 11 x 7 inch baking dish or 10 inch quiche dish.
Chop the onion; heat butter in a small nonstick skillet and saute until tender.
Combine cooked onion, soup, chicken, milk, pimiento (or red bell pepper), and mayo in a bowl and then turn into the prepared baking dish.
Bake for 15 minutes and remove from oven. Sprinkle q cup of the cheese over the baked mixture.
Arrange biscuits decoratively in a single layer and sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese over them.
Return casserole to oven and bake until biscuits are golden brown and sauce is bubbly, usually about 20 minutes longer.
Note: This is RICH! You may sub sour cream for all or part of the mayo if you wish to cut back on the heaviness. The last time I made this I used a 1/4 cup of fat free mayo and 1/4 cup of sour cream. I think it was delicious. Also, I took the suggestion of adding a cup of cooked green peas. What a terrific idea! I LOVED it! I think I might add two cups next time. Thanks to you all for making my humble recipe and leaving your suggestions. You GREATLY improved a recipe I was already proud of. Thanks so much.
Note from Tammy: I took the suggestion above from the original source of the recipe and used 1/4 cup of mayo and 1/4 cup of sour cream and the 2 cups of cooked green peas. It reminded me sorta of a good chicken pot pie. Jason and Luke especially loved this. It was pretty good to me, but I tend to favor spicier recipes. I will be making it again though since the guys really liked it.
