  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Cook and stir the garlic, onion, celery, and carrots in butter until tender. Mix in the flour, sugar, salt, 1 teaspoon dried basil, and pepper. Stir in broth, and bring to a boil. Stirring constantly, boil 1 minute, reduce heat, and stir in peas. Simmer 5 minutes, then mix in chicken. Transfer mixture to the prepared baking dish.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the baking mix and 2 teaspoons dried basil. Stir in milk to form a dough. Divide the dough into 6 to 8 balls. On floured wax paper, use the palm of your hand to flatten each ball of dough into a circular shape; place on top of chicken mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Cover with foil, and bake for 10 more minutes. To serve, spoon chicken mixture over biscuits.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I made this 1 other time before and followed the recipe to a T. It was very good and the proportions are very balanced. This time I made sure to cut the celery and carrot pieces smaller than the...

This is a staple wintertime recipe. Also, hate to say it, but I've made it both with chicken broth and then with 4 bouillon cubes + 4 cups water. Now I like to go "fresh" when I can, but it wa...

UPDATE: Try this recipe with mashed potoatoes on top in lieu of the biscuits called for (i.e. like a chicken shepherd's pie). I got this idea from Rachel Ray. All in all, I prefer this better ...

Great recipe--I would use a little less black pepper, and I used Bisquick baking mix with 2/3 cup buttermilk instead of regular milk. Bought a whole roasted chicken and used that for the 4 cups...

I made the chicken mixture according to the recipe, except I added a little poultry seasoning. It was very good but next time I make this I'll use frozen peas instead of canned. Some other rev...

Bummer! How did everyone rate this 5 stars? Maybe I missed something, because I thought that this recipe was not so great. Maybe the basil biscuits didn't suit my taste. If you make this recipe ...

Soooooo very good! I didn't add the celery, but I did add corn and potatoes (that I cooked in the microwave first). I also used 4 chicken stock cubes and 4 cups of water instead of the chicken b...

I was really surprised by this. I've made similar dishes which usually turn out pretty bland but since this had such good ratings I thought I'd try it. It's really good! The basil is a great to...

This is a good recipe!I left out the celery. I added extra onion and more peas. The basil is a must! It really make the sauce! I floured the biscuits in a small bowl instead of on wax paper...le...
