Chicken & Cheddar Biscuit Casserole

I always get rave reviews when I bring this casserole to my son's Cub Scouts meetings. It's also the perfect comfort meal after a long day. —Sarah Phillips, East Lansing, Michigan

  • Makes
    12 servings


  • 1/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups chicken broth or stock
  • 5 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 3 cups biscuit/baking mix
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup roasted sweet red peppers, drained and chopped


  • Preheat oven to 425°. In a 6-qt. stockpot, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery and carrots; cook and stir 3-5 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; cook and stir 1 minute longer. Stir in flour, salt and pepper until blended; gradually whisk in broth. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir over medium heat 4-6 minutes or until thickened. Add chicken.
  • Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine biscuit mix and milk just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 8-10 times. Roll dough into a 12x8-in. rectangle. Sprinkle with cheese and peppers. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut crosswise into 1-in.-thick slices. Place on top of hot chicken mixture. Bake, uncovered, 15-20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.
    Freeze option: Cool baked casserole; cover and freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 425°. Bake casserole, covered, 40 minutes or until heated through and a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°.

    My husband loves this casserole and has requested it a couple time since I first made it. It goes together quickly after work when I make the gravy/chicken part ahead. I simply reheat that part, make up the biscuit part and bake. Very satisfying and filling supper that looks like you fussed when you really didn't.

    Halved this recipe to use up some leftover chicken and was happy with it. I'm thinking that I will make the full version for a potluck sometime.
