Chicken Alfredo Biscuit Casserole

The Menu:
Chicken Alfredo Biscuit Casserole



The Original Recipe:
My family has been requesting dishes using these ingredients. I didn't have everything to complete those dishes they requested, but I did search for a recipe using what I did have and came up with this recipe from pillsbury.com. This was delicious!! Comparable to White Chicken Bubble Up Pizza, but I love the addition of broccoli and not all that extra cheese. This was just good. You won't be disappointed. I pretty much made this the way the recipe calls for (can you believe it!?!). I only subbed a few things for things I had on hand, so my notes follow.


Chicken Alfredo Biscuit Casserole via pillsbury.com

INGREDIENTS:

1 tablespoon butter
2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 jar (16 oz) Alfredo pasta sauce
1/4 cup milk
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
2 cups Green Giant® SELECT® frozen broccoli florets, thawed
1/4 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1 can (7.5 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

DIRECTIONS:

Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 8-inch square (2-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray.

In 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Cook mushrooms and onion in butter, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in Alfredo sauce, milk, chicken, broccoli and basil. Cook until mixture is thoroughly heated and bubbly, stirring constantly. Spoon into baking dish.

Separate dough into 10 biscuits. Cut each biscuit in half crosswise. Arrange around edge of baking dish, overlapping slightly. Drizzle biscuits with melted butter; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.

*kowboys notes: I used fresh steamed broccoli instead of frozen. I used fat free evaporated milk. I used a 13x9 pan and used 2 cans of biscuits. I cut the biscuits into fours and spread them all over the top of the casserole and baked it that way. I also subbed canned chicken instead of chicken breasts cooked.
