Sunday dinner is a great way to spend time with family and friends. When my daughter was younger, we always had extra kids at our house, so making sure I had a meal that I could stretch was a plus. Now that my daughter is older, there are not so many people that sit around our table. Needless to say, I often have leftovers and am always looking for great recipes to use them in.
This past Sunday, I roasted a large Perdue fresh chicken. Since it was just Big and I this past Sunday, I packed the leftover chicken in zipper bags, making sure to sqeeze all of the air out. I make sure that I flatten the bags and then stack them up and pop them in the freezer. I usually put about 1 cup of cooked chicken in each bag. I know that is about the amount I will need for most of my recipes using cooked chicken.
One of my families favorite recipes using cooked/leftover chicken is Easy Chicken and Biscuit Casserole. It is my spin on chicken and dumplings my Grandmother used to make. It takes about 10 minutes to prepare it and about 20 minutes to bake. I can have great tasting comfort food on the table for my family in no time.
One of my neighbors is having a bit of a health issue. She lives alone and doesn’t alway do a lot of cooking for herself. I like to invite her over to our house for dinner, but since she wasn’t feeling well, I thought I would take dinner to her.
I will often make this casserole in a 9 X 9 dish and in a couple individual casserole dishes. The individual dishes are oven proof and freezer ready. I knew they can be heated and eaten right away or frozen for a day.
- 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
- 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 can cream of chicken soup (can use cream of mushroom soup)
- 1 can refrigerated biscuits
- Preheat oven to 350º
- In a large sauce pan, add chicken, frozen mixed vegetables, soup, milk and pepper. (I don't add salt, but you can if you want)
- Mix well and heat thoroughly.
- Pour hot mixture in a 9 X 13 baking dish.
- Place biscuits on top of hot mixture.
- Bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until biscuits are done.
