Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a medium saucepot bring water to boil. Add 1 tsp. salt to the boiling water. Cook chicken thighs in the boiling water until no longer pink inside. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of broth. Cool chicken until easy to handle. Strip the meat off the bones, set aside. Discard skin and bones.
  • In a large pan saute mushrooms, carrots, onion and celery in butter until tender.
  • Sprinkle with flour. Stir in broth and milk. Cook and stir until blended. Bring to a boil. Keep cooking and stirring until thickened, for about 2 more minutes.
  • Add the chicken, peas, 1 tsp. of chicken seasoning and salt and pepper to taste. Heat through. Pour into a shallow, greased 2 1/2 qt. baking dish, set aside.
  • FOR THE BISCUIT TOPPING:
  • In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk, just until moistened.
  • Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Knead about 10 times. Pat or roll out to a 1/2 inch thickness. Cut in circles with a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter, dipped in flour.
  • Place biscuits in rows over chicken mixture.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 400F oven for about 20 minutes, or until biscuits are golden brown. Serve warm.

    You did it again, Juels - love the "from scratch" biscuit topping, too. The pie filling ingredients are the perfect match. This is definitely a meal for the cold weather we are experiencing "up north". I must try to put this together for us while the timing is perfect! Thank you, thank you, thank you...Krum

    Using biscuits instead of a crust? What a wonderfully glorious idea you have here, julia! I normally use biscuits over pie filling as a crust but this is such a great idea! I will be making this soon. My 255 goes out to you, julia! Thank you!
