Chicken and Biscuits from Dishin' with Dixie

Meal #7 of my Aldi 25 Experiment was Chicken & Biscuits.  This is an old recipe from my repertoire which was inspired by a box dinner by Banquet.  It was one of those box dinners that looks like it will last long after the zombie apocalypse has wiped out humanity.  The sodium levels were frightening and the taste was bland, that’s not supposed to happen.  Once I got the hang of making biscuits from scratch I started making Chicken & Biscuits from scratch (well, mostly from scratch.)  I recently found an even easier way to make biscuits from a blog called Plain Chicken. It’s a great food blog and I highly recommend it.

Here’s the tally:
Chicken (I used mostly leftovers) – $2.16
Chicken Stock – $0
Cream of Chicken Soup – $0.49
Instant Potatoes – $1.38
Sour Cream – $0.32
Bisquick – $0.62
1/2 of 7-Up – $0.25
Bag of Peas – $0.89
For a grand total of $6.11 for 8 servings (that’s $0.76 per serving)

Dixie’s Chicken and Biscuits
4 cups prepared or leftover mashed potatoes
3 cup cooked chicken, cut up or shredded into chunks
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup chicken stock (can substitute broth, bouillon or even water)
2 cups Bisquick
1/2 sour cream
1/2 7-Up soda
1/4 cup butter or margarine

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  As oven warms place 1/4 cup butter in a 9×13-inch baking dish and place in oven to melt.  When butter has melted remove dish from oven.

Spread mashed potatoes in bottom of baking dish.

In a bowl combine soup and chicken stock.  Stir well to combine.  Stir in chicken.  Pour soup mixture over top of the potatoes.

In a separate bowl add Bisquick and sour cream.  Cut the sour cream into the Bisquick.  Stir in the 7-Up until evenly blended.  Using a large spoon drop rounds of biscuit dough on top of the soup mixture.  Makes about 15 small biscuits.

Alternatively you could roll out the biscuit dough and cut it into rounds.  You’ll like get between 9 and 12 biscuits using this method, depends on the size of your biscuit cutter.

Place in oven and bake, uncovered, for approximately 15-20 or until the tops of the biscuits are lightly browned and the soup layer in bubbling.  Remove from oven and let stand at least 10 minutes during which the biscuits will finish cooking.
