Lazy Chicken Pot Biscuit Casserole

This is like chicken pot pie in casserole form using biscuit dough. Biscuit scraps fluff up in a delicious creamy vegetable sauce creating one fairly quick and tasty casserole! This recipe is one of those staple recipes I make from time to time. It’s a keeper! 

Biscuit scraps work great here because if you’ve made homemade biscuits before, scraps just don’t make the same biscuits as the cut out ones. I like to make a big batch of my favorite biscuit recipe and freeze them on a tray or plate (including scraps.) Then transfer them to zip-loc bags and use when needed. You’ll have ready to use biscuits anytime this way.

You can opt for store-bought ones but let me say that these homemade ones get so fluffy in that creamy sauce that it’s like airy dumplings in a thick soup if I may say–the results are just delicious! The biscuit scraps also create more bite size pieces versus whole ones, either can work though.A must try recipe for a Chicken Pot Pie alternative!
