Well this week, I’m feeling a little under the weather with a sinus cold, so I decided that instead of chicken noodle soup from a can, I would be more creative and make something that would stick to my ribs.
Ribs– now that’s a previous article, you can check that one out here.
Back to this dinner though.
This is a meal that is quick and easy, packed with flavor, and everyone will love it!!!
The best part is you can put it together in a matter of minutes. This is the perfect dish for fall, the cold weather that is ahead, busy evenings, or you could bring it to a friend/family member just for the hell of it.
Here is what you’ll need:
First, let’s grab an 11×7 baking dish and a cookie sheet.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and grab these:.
- 1 (10.5 oz) can of broccoli cheese soup
- 1 (10.5 oz) can of cream of potato soup
- 2/3 cup of whole milk
- ½ tsp. seasoning salt
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- ½ tsp. Italian seasoning
- ½ tsp. black pepper
- 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
- 2 cups chicken, grilled and diced
- 1 package biscuits (I used Pillsbury Grands)
Okay, let’s put this together, and you’ll be bashin’ before ya know it!!!!
1.) Grill enough chicken for 2 cups. I used two breasts. Make sure you cook the chicken until done. Check with a thermometer. The internal temp should be 150 degrees.
2.) Once the chicken has cooled down a little (about 15 minutes), dice into bite-size pieces and set aside. Now, let’s move on to our next step.
3.) In a medium to large bowl, combine the broccoli cheese soup and cream of potato soup.
4.) Next we’re going to add the whole milk. Then fold it together. Don’t over-mix, or you’ll break up the potatoes too much.
5.) Add in all the spices. I measure all my spices out on a paper plate and then add them to the mix I have started all at once.
6.) Add the mixed vegetables and carefully fold them in.
7.) Next, add in your diced chicken. The mixture will look thick and creamy.
8.) Now get your 11×7 baking pan. Pour the mixture in the pan, and level it out.
9.) Bake the mix for about 20 minutes, or until it’s bubbling.
10.) Now get those biscuits out, and put them on a cookie sheet. Follow the directions on the can of biscuits.
OOOOHHHHHH…it’s almost done at this point. Who’s hungry???
Let’s plate our meal.
I put my biscuit or biscuits on a plate and spoon the chicken casserole mixture over top.
That’s it!!!!! Now you can make something quick, easy, and delicious, and it won’t take you all day in the kitchen.
Stay hungry, my friends!!! Until next time…
