This Creamy Chicken Biscuit Bake is the epitome of easy cheesy, weeknight dinner comfort food.
Country comfort food at it’s best, this Creamy Chicken Biscuit Bake recipe is surprisingly quick and easy to throw together for a hearty weeknight meal for your family, or even a Sunday dinner for guests. You probably have most of the ingredients to make this already, except for one; a jar of chopped pimento peppers, but these could easily be swapped for roasted red pepper (that you would need to chop) or even roasted green chile (which I will definitely be making next time, I have a great batch of chile this year). Emphasis on roasted, I wouldn’t recommend freshly chopped peppers in this recipe.
Make ahead dinners are the way to go these days, with all the craziness of the holidays and just life in general with kids and all their goings on. I recently purchased a large bag of frozen chicken breasts from Sam’s Club, and decided to just cook it all up at once, shred it, and freeze it for later use. I have LOVED this kitchen hack, because I can throw together so many recipes in no time, like Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup, White Chicken Chili, and now Creamy Chicken Biscuit Bake without having cook chicken every time!
The base of this recipe is simple, just shredded pre-cooked chicken mixed with a can of cream of chicken soup, sour cream, milk, cooked onion and pimento peppers. Bake this mixture for 15 minutes to warm it up, then top it off with shredded cheddar cheese, biscuit dough, and a little more cheese on top of the biscuits. Pop it back into the oven for about 20 more minutes until the biscuits are lovely golden brown on top.
Scoop out a biscuit and the creamy chicken underneath for a hearty serving of home grown country food. Serve it with some steamed veggies and a salad for a great meal!
I hope you enjoy this recipe, and please rate and review it to be helpful for other readers. Thanks!
