Chicken and Biscuits Casserole (Fall Comfort Food)

Fall is here and that means occasionally indulging in comfort food. I shared this recipe (one of T's favorites) a couple of years ago, before I knew enough to take food pictures as I cooked. I thought I'd post this recipe for Chicken and Biscuits Casserole again, as I have decidedly more readers than when I originally hit "Publish." I think you will appreciate this simple, yet satisfying meal. One serving is filling!

Disclaimer: This is about as far from healthy as you can get! I cook this meal on a very limited basis...usually only when T begs. But it is a real crowd pleaser---even my very picky three year old enjoys this meal.

Chicken and Biscuits Casserole:
  • 1 Can (10 3/4 oz) Condensed Cream of Celery Soup (Fat Free is ok)
  • 1 Can (10 3/4 oz) Condensed Cream of Potato Soup 
  • 1 cup of Milk (I used whole because that's what my girls drink, but I'm sure skim is fine too)
  • 4 cups cooked, cut-up vegetables
  • 2 cups cubed, cooked chicken
  • 1 package refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (Grand's are good, but the WM brand was what I had)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

I just microwaved the frozen chicken breasts and cut them into small pieces...no time for perfect cube shapes! In a baking dish, mix soups, milk, vegetables, and chicken. (I add my own herbs and spices: pepper, thyme, Nature's Seasoning, etc.) Add vegetables and chicken to the mix. I use frozen vegetables and do not cook them before I add them to the dish. (They seem too mushy otherwise!) T loves corn so I add that too.

Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until hot. Stir. Arrange unbaked biscuits over the mixture and bake an additional 15 minutes, or until biscuits are golden.

I modified this recipe from Campbell's Classic Recipes, which was a wedding gift from my grandmother. This was the first dish I cooked for T after we were married!

I like to cook, and I like to try healthy recipes, but sometimes there's just nothing like a hot casserole on a cold Fall night...maybe one of these days it will be chilly enough to make some more comfort food!

Does your family have a favorite meal?

  1. That looks soooo good -- even at 7:00 a.m. in the morning! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  2. Yep! I am with Jodee on this one! My stomach is growling this a.m. Looks really good!

  3. What time is dinner? A twist on one of my fall favs, chicken pot pie! So putting this on the meal plan next week.

  4. Yes we do! For the fall, my family loves my Taco chili! That looked amazing...a casserole topped with biscuits, yes please!

  5. This looks so yummy! I make something similar but I think I will try this version next time. Like you, it is not something that I make often but it is SO good when I do! I love me some good ole comfort food :)

  6. This looks absolutely delicious.

    My family loves lasagna. Guess I'll have to make it soon so I can blog about it!

  7. This looks so yummy. I could eat a casserole every night, but Ryan has an aversion to casseroles. Actually, he has an aversion to hamburger helper and thinks EVERY casserole is hamburger helper. (I blame his mom for scarring him. ;))

    So, I just make casseroles and don't call them casseroles. Everybody wins. I'm a huge fan of a homemade pot pie and chicken/rice/cream of mushroom casserole. Yummy! Comfort food at its finest.

  8. That is great! I do something very similar but cook it on low in the crock pot. All you have to do is put the biscuits on top for the last 20-30 minutes.

  9. You have totally just rocked my world. How do you cook chicken in the microwave? How do I not know about this?

  10. Looks warm and rich and filling - just perfect for this cold fall weather!

  11. Wow--how crazy is this? . . . I was just going to head downstairs to make this for tonight when I popped on your blog. Great minds and all that. . . :)

  12. Thanks for the info about the microwave chicken and the email. I had no idea it was disabled. Happy Tuesday!

  13. that looks so yummy!!!! I love chicken and biscuits!

  14. That was the first thing you cooked for T after y'all were married?! Wow--I'm impressed! We were so poor when we were first married that we lived on macaroni and cheese for the first month. Thank God for married students' housing at UVa--our rent was $278 per month, and that included utilities. But even with subsidized housing, we had very little left over each month. Jack would have thought he'd died and gone to heaven if I'd made him something like this! :)

  15. That looks like a great recipe to prepare and just pop in the oven after work. This could be a hit with my kids, thanks for sharing!


I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
