Recipe Notes

  • If you aren't a fan of salt or are cutting back on your salt intake, skip it.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight food storage container in the refrigerator. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Melt the butter in an ovenproof skillet. Add the onion, celery and potato. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Cook for about 6 to 7 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. 
  2. Sprinkle in the flour and cook, stirring, about 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth, milk and thyme. Stir. Bring to a simmer and cook about 5 minutes or until it thickens up. Add more salt and pepper, if needed. Add the cooked chicken. 
  3. To make the biscuits, combine the flour, garlic powder, sugar, milk and melted butter in a mixing bowl until a dough forms. Drop mounds of the biscuit dough on top of the chicken filling. 
  4. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for about 20 minutes or until biscuits are browned and cooked through.
