Course entree


  • 2 cups frozen, fully-cooked grilled chicken breast strips, cubed (or fully-cooked rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 tbsp canola or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen chopped onions
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • ½ cup frozen chopped carrots
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 1 12-oz can evaporated milk 
  • ½ cup frozen peas
  • ½ cup frozen French-cut green beans
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 16-oz package refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 1 egg, beaten


  • Wash hands with soap and water.
  • Reheat the frozen chicken strips according to the package directions. Cut into bite-sized pieces.
  • Wash counters, cutting board, and knife before handling raw produce. Wash hands with soap and water.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Gently rub celery under cold running water. If using fresh onion, scrub onion with a clean vegetable brush under running water.
  • In a large pan over medium heat, add 1 Tablespoon oil. Then add the onions, celery, and carrots. Cook approximately 5 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
  • Add the other ¼ cup oil. Once the oil is hot, sprinkle the flour and whisk  to combine. Wash hands with soap and water after handling raw flour.
  • Slowly pour in the chicken stock, whisking constantly to prevent lumps. Then stir in the evaporated milk.
  • Once the mixture starts to simmer, lower the heat to medium-low and add the chicken, peas, green beans, salt, black pepper, dried thyme, and cayenne pepper. Stir well to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  • Transfer to a 9 x 13” pan. We used a deep dish pie pan.
  • Top with the biscuits and brush the biscuits with beaten egg. Wash hands with soap and water after handling raw eggs.
  • Bake in the oven at 350°F until the internal temperature reaches 165°F on a food thermometer, approximately 20-25 minutes.
