Creamed Chicken And Biscuits

Creamed Chicken and Biscuits

     A true comfort food in all aspects of what makes it labeled that. A southern dish from origin, creamed chicken and biscuits is; comforting, warming, wholesome, and makes you feel at home. My mom always used to make this. Albeit she made her own biscuits and usually had a shortcut with the chicken ad sauce part, but it will always remind me of her.  I never had this anywhere else.  I think she learned to cook it from my father's family. Either way it is a true country dish and being from West Virginia, I should know at least a few good down home meals, huh? Creamed Chicken And Biscuits.

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 3 tbs butter
  • 3 tbs flour
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1 tbs onion powder
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • Salt/pepper
  • Pinch of savory

     In a small pot boil the chicken until done, roughly about 15 minutes. Remove and let cool before picking apart into chunks. In a large skillet melt butter and whisk in the flour. Continue whisking for about 3 minutes until your rue has cooked out the flour flavor. Pour in the chicken broth, milk, and cream slowly while still whisking.  The mixture will start to thicken up a bit and that is what you want. Lower heat to low as not to burn the cream mixture. Stir in the onion powder, garlic, and savory. Mix back in the chicken, salt and pepper to taste, and cover and simmer until you are ready to serve.  This dish serves about 3-4 people.  You will love this dish. It will make you feel warm and remind you of home.  Isn't that exactly what comfort food is supposed to do?
