Wow! Thanks Miss Mikki... That looks delicious, and exactly like I had imagined how the dish to look. In my mind, it's just a chicken pot pie with little or no vegetables served over biscuits. No way that's not yummy!

Thanks for posting the picture....It's worth a thousand words!!


Enjoy!

Thanks for the compliment and oh boy did we enjoyed it alright I feel like I'm going to burst, I always over eat when I make chic-n-bisc. Made my daughter fell better too, she sprained her ankle on Sat and still can't put much pressure on it and is upset she can't play basketball. There is nothing like comfort food.

Never made cornbread before. Wouldn't even know where to start. I just learned how to make bananna and zuccinni bread though so there might be hope for me yet.

Hope you didn't mind me looking, too
That's the way it's supposed to be, simple. The chicken. The biscuits. The gravy. Maybe some veggies. That's the difference between chicken and biscuits and pot pie filling, IMO. But they're similar.

Do you make a traditional chicken pot pie type gravy, light in color, or is it a darker brown gravy...I know I will love it. A "southerner" will eat anything on top of a biscuit! Or cornbread!
I like the gravy inside to be:
1. plentiful
2. whiter in color, so creamy, adding milk and 1/2+1/2
3. made with chicken broth and the ^^^ that's been cooking on the stove all day
4. not too many spices or seasonings cause I want it to taste like just chicken gravy
5. all else goes into the filling, but for the gravy, it's pretty straight foreward

Looks like my grandmother's chicken-n-dumplins - sans the dumplins. All she did was boil a chicken, then skin and bone the meat, shred or dice the meat, add back to the pot - add the dumplings and if it wasn't thick enough when the dumplins were done she add a little blond roux (real butter and flour cooked over very low heat for 4-5 minutes) ... and lots of black pepper. If too thick after adding the roux - she thinned it out with whole milk.

So - deconstructing her recipe to make this ... she had basically chicken, stock and a roux - the thickness adjusted with whole milk. I guess that further reduces to simply boiled chicken and gravy?

How could that not be good, with or without vegetables, cerved up over a big old hot split buttermilk biscuit - or some cornbread (made without sugar).

Humm ... it's supposed to be cold here this weekend ....
