Chicken and Whole Wheat Biscuits Casserole is the perfect comfort food with fluffy, low-fat biscuits and a creamy, low calorie chicken stew. It will be your new favorite dinner recipe.
The clouds have parted, and the angels are singing. That is exactly how I feel when we have Chicken and Biscuits for dinner. My all-time favorite bread, a fluffy biscuit, sops up the delicious gravy from the creamy chicken stew underneath. Every bite is sheer heaven. I have to admit, it took me forever to make a good biscuit, which is quite funny since the trick is to do as little as possible to it. I have two other tips for a fluffy biscuit. The first is frozen, grated butter. I like to freeze the butter for a few minutes. Then I grate it and pop it back in the freezer. You want it really cold. The next tip is seltzer water. Yes, a little bubbly gives your biscuits more lift. I always make mine by hand with a bowl. You don’t need to use a food processor. The dough is really simple to stir together and less chance you will overwork the dough. I barely mix mine. I just want it incorporated, just barely.
When you are cutting out the biscuits, be sure to push straight down with the cookie cutter. Do not twist it. Don’t do it people. Push straight down and pull the cookie cutter straight up. It is that easy. You can put this delicious casserole together earlier in the day and pop it in the oven to cook before dinner. It will save you some time. Need a dish to bring to a potluck or a neighbor. Chicken and Biscuits is the perfect casserole. It is comforting, easy on the tummy and filling. I love to fill mine with vegetables. I happened to find some cute, colorful carrots. See those purple specks in the casserole, those are carrots. Carrots that are my favorite color, swoon! Give this delicious and lightened comfort food a try. Your taste buds and tummy will thank you.
