Comfort food that can be made with the rest of the rotisserie chicken you bought yesterday or last week and it’s about to go bad so you better put it into tonight’s meal!
The first thing you do is cook the veggies. You can choose whichever veggies you want. I decided to use frozen peas, fresh celery, fresh carrots, and an onion. I chopped the veggies and put them in a big pan on the stove with 1 can of chicken broth and some soy milk, adding the broth periodically as the veggies cooked. You can use regular milk, half and half, or sour cream [put them in midway]. Even plain Greek yogurt could. Cook them on medium or so till you can pierce them with a fork.
Preheat the oven at 350 degrees. Pour the veggies in a baking pan, then add the chicken. Pull all the meat off the rotisserie chicken and shred it and throw it in with the veggies. Sprinkle on the seasonings, add more broth or milk if desired. I didn’t, but you may feel the need to.
For the seasonings you can try using a few or all of these: garlic powder, pepper, Italian seasoning, onion powder, sage, basil, dill weed, turmeric, cayenne pepper. It’s really up to you what seasonings to choose. I tend to go with whatever I am in the mood for and typically use garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning and pepper. The others add a bit more kick and can really enhance the flavor. I’m a big advocate for seasonings and I use them a lot!
Mix the veggies, chicken and seasonings together, then sprinkle cheese on top. I used mozzarella. Cheddar or Jalapeño jack would be super tasty too.
Now make the biscuit mixture.
For this you’ll need 1 cup flour, 2 tsp baking powder, oil [use what you want, I used olive oil], half cup milk, a pinch salt and a sprinkle of garlic and onion powder.
In a small mixing bowl pour in the flour, baking powder, salt and the garlic & onion powder. Add milk and 2 tablespoons of oil. Mix it up and add a little more oil until the mixture turns into a thick paste. Use a spoon to scoop globs of the mixture on top of the cheese and cover the entire pan in an even layer. Sprinkle on more pepper and place pan in oven. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes.
It doesn’t matter if you use a small pan or a large pan to bake your meal in, the biscuits will work for both. You can make enough for you and a special someone or for the whole family! It also tastes good the next day. Happy Eating!
