My mother always made this when we were growing up. Now I make it for my own husband and kids. I use the small biscuits because they brown up so nicely on top. I also add mushrooms to this recipe sometimes because my family loves 'em. —Keri Boffeli, Monticello, Iowa

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 can (10-1/2 ounces) condensed chicken broth, undiluted
  • 1/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
  • 2 cups frozen peas and carrots (about 10 ounces), thawed

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Melt butter in a 10-in. cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender, 2-3 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, mix flour, broth, milk and pepper until smooth; stir into pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir until thickened, 1-2 minutes.
