Chicken & Biscuits

How could I forget to share this recipe? It is an old time favorite of ours! A good standby for a warm meal on a cool fall day!


The Menu:
Chicken &Biscuits

The Original Recipe:
My stepmom makes this meal. I think she makes it a lot different than what I do now-a-days, but this is mine.

Chicken & Biscuits

2-4 bone in and skin on chicken breasts
2 tsp. low sodium chicken bullion
enough water to fill pot with chicken breasts in it
1 tsp. poultry seasonings
1/2 tsp. celery seed
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup flour
More water for flour


Place chicken in pot. Fill with water. Add seasonings and bullion. bring to a boil and turn to simmer until chicken begins to fall off bone. Remove carefully and place on plate to cool. DO NOT DRAIN WATER; leave it in the pot. Once cooled, remove chicken from bone, discarding bones and skin. place pieced chicken back into pot.
In separate bowl, mix flour and enough water to make a smooth paste. Gently whisk paste mixture into pot with chicken. Taste, add more seasonings/salt/pepper to taste. Bring back to boil whisking occasionally to avoid lumps.. once boiling, reduce and it should thicken. You want it thick. Serve on top of warm biscuits.

The Original Recipe:
I found this on the Internet! It is for home made Bisquick biscuits.

Homemade Baking Mix (AKA Bisquick)

Ingredients

5 ½ cups sifted flour
1 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp baking powder
1 cup shortening

Mix all ingredients well until crumbly. Store in an air tight container.


The Way I Made It My Own:
this was a lot easier!

Home Made Bisquick Biscuits

2 1/2Cups self rising flour
1/4 cup shortening

Mix all ingredients well, until crumbly. Add 1/4 cup milk or enough milk until biscuits form a dough.
