Ingredients

For the filling: • 2 cups chicken broth • 1 cup half-and-half • 1/3 cup butter • 1 cup onion, chopped • 1 cup carrots, peeled and chopped • 1 cup celery, chopped • 1/2 cup flour • 1 teaspoon salt • 1/4 teaspoon pepper • 4 cups chicken, cooked, diced or shredded • 1/2 cup frozen peas, not thawed For the biscuits: • 2 cups Bisquick • 2/3-3/4 cup buttermilk, cold • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley • 2 tablespoons butter, melted • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Step 2

Spray a 2-1/2- to 3-quart casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside.

Step 3

In a small bowl, whisk together 2 cups chicken broth and 1 cup half-and-half until smooth. Set aside.

Step 4

Melt 1/3 cup butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Step 5

Add the onion, carrot, and celery, sautéing until the vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes.

Step 6

Add the flour to the vegetable mixture and stir until the vegetables are covered, for about 1 minute.

Step 7

Reduce the heat to medium and gradually stir in the chicken broth mixture.

Step 8

Continue cooking the filling over medium heat, stirring regularly, until thick and bubbly, about 5-6 minutes. Make sure the filling does not boil.

Step 9

Stir the salt and pepper into the filling.

Step 10

Add the cooked chicken and frozen peas to the filling.

Step 11

Transfer the filling to the prepared casserole dish.

Step 12

Cover the casserole dish with foil and bake until the filling is warm throughout, for about 10-15 minutes.

Step 13

In a medium bowl, use a fork to stir together the Bisquick mix, buttermilk, cheese, and parsley until a soft dough forms.

Step 14

Take the filling out of the oven and remove the foil cover.

Step 15

Stir the filling.

Step 16

Use a large scoop or spoon to drop about 1/4 cup of the biscuit dough at a time onto the filling. There should be about 8 biscuits on top of the filling.

Step 17

Return the dish to the oven and bake, uncovered, until the biscuits are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the biscuit comes out clean, about 12 minutes.

Step 18

Stir together 2 tablespoons melted butter and 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder.

Step 19

Pull the dish out of the oven and brush the butter mixture over the biscuits.

Step 20

Serve hot.
