Creamy Chicken with Biscuits

If chicken nuggets and a chicken pot pie had a one-night stand, creamy chicken and biscuits would be the delicious result. Flaky buttermilk biscuits soak up a creamy mixture of vegetables and spices along with lightly breaded chicken pieces.

  • 8-12 buttermilk biscuits
  • Prepare biscuits according to recipe.
  • 1 leek
  • ½ pound carrots
  • Chop leeks and carrots and set aside.
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon pepper, or to taste
  • Combine in medium bowl and set aside.
  • 4 boneless chicken breasts (1 ½ pounds)
  • Rinse the chicken breasts and pat dry. Cut into ¾ inch pieces. Toss chicken strips in flour-mixture so that all pieces are well coated.
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon oil olive
  • Melt butter and heat olive oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat until butter has melted and sizzles when you add a drop of flour. Add the chicken strips and sauté until they're golden brown and slightly crisp, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to plate and set aside.
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • reserved vegetables
  • Add oil to now empty skillet and reduce heat to medium low. Add reserved vegetable and cook, stirring frequently, until the leeks are soft, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • 1 cup heavy cream or milk
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • Add cream and chicken broth to skillet and bring to a low boil over medium-high heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 10 minutes, until the liquid has reduced by about half.
  • 1 cup frozen green peas
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • Return chicken to skillet and add peas and parsley and simmer until peas are tender, about 5 min.
  • Remove from heat. Slice biscuits in half and place halves open side up on a plate. Spoon chicken pieces and vegetable mixture over top. Serve immediately with a second biscuit on the side.
