Chicken Biscuit Bake

All right, first confessions, Thursday my husband was home for lunch so we ate out. Thursday evening I made this chicken biscuit bake. It's quite similar to chicken pot pie. I was going to do step by step pictures, but I had a little recipe mishap and had to concentrate on still making it palatable instead of food photography. So here's the recipe:

1/2c. plus 1T all-purpose flour
1/2t. baking powder
dash salt
3T cold butter
2T beaten egg (note, NOT a whole egg)
1/4c. buttermilk
2T butter
2T all-purpose flour
1c. milk
1T. chicken boullion granules
1/2c. cubed cooked chicken
1/2c. frozen mixed vegetables
1/2c. small curd cottage cheese

In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles course crumbs. Stir egg into buttermilk. Add to crumb mixture; stir until it forms dough. Turn onto floured surface and knead until smooth. Divide in half and roll out one portion and place in bottom of greased 1-qt baking dish.
In small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add milk and boullion. Bring to boil; cook and stir 1-2 minutes until thick. Stir in chicken, vegetables, cottage cheese. Pour into dish.
Roll out remaining dough and place on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

I had issues with the dough. I think next time I will make the filling and use canned biscuits and pour the filling over the biscuists. I've tried using the canned biscuits on top, but then the bottom of the biscuit doesn't cook. I think the filling would also be good over a baked potato.


  1. Is this a meal that you would make again? So do you think it would be good with the canned biscuits on the bottom? Would it be weird to be on the top instead?

  2. I would make it again. It's actually one I'e made before, just not with the crust recipe it comes with. I tried it before with the canned biscuits on top (nothing on bottom) and the problem I had was that the biscuits only cooked on the top and the underneath was still doughy. I think next time I'll just serve it as a biscuits and gravy type of meal--cook the biscuits, make the filling and then pour the filling on top of the biscuits. If something else works for you, let me know.
