Chicken and Biscuit Casserole

September 15, 2012Teresa

Chicken and Biscuit Casserole is a wonderful, comforting, delicious main dish casserole. It is so versatile (depending on what you have on hand) and it just makes up so nicely, too. It has all the ingredients you expect in comfort food….chicken, noodles, vegetables, cheese, and a few other twists!

You will love this recipe. If you don’t want to debone a chicken, use baked chicken breasts or leftover rotisserie chicken. But it tastes so much better with all of the chicken meat included. It gives it such a rich, full flavor. I use the chicken broth to cook the noodles in and it adds additional flavor to the casserole.

This recipe has been one of those I have made for company over and over and over again. Plus, it’s a great main dish meal with everything you need to take to someone who needs a meal. It has meat, veggies, noodles (for the starch), and biscuits. It is basically a meal in itself! You can add dessert or salad, but you don’t have to. We love this recipe and I have passed it on to a lot of people over the years, too.

When I made this recipe originally in September 2012, all the pictures were quite poor. I recently remade this recipe (July 2013), and I’ve updated all the pictures. I made this dish a week ago for my neighbor. I made a triple batch of the double recipe using 3 whole chickens because she is moving and told me she had 25 people helping her so I made her a meal to feed 25 people. Two batches went to her and one batch went for our family!

I served this fantastic casserole with a Texas Sheet Cake, and Carrots in Creamy Dill Sauce. Chris and all her family were thrilled to have enough food that no one went hungry. Plus, there was enough food for two different meals. It made her moving experience so much easier.

This delightful recipe has been featured on All Free Casserole Recipes in their Chicken Casserole section, here.

My kids always loved this recipe growing up.

Chicken and Biscuit Casserole does take a little work if you cook off and debone your own chicken, but it tastes so wonderfully it’s worth it. When you double the recipe it provides enough for leftovers for a couple of meals! To save time, use rotisserie chicken and chicken broth out of a carton.

Here’s what I did.

Chicken and Biscuit Casserole | Can't Stay Out of the Kitchen | our favorite #chicken #casserole recipe. This one includes #noodles, #biscuits, veggies & lots of #cheese!

I cooked off 3 whole chickens, but normally you would only cook off one for a double batch. Fill a crockpot with water. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper and cook on high several hours or overnight on low (which is what I did).

Allow the chicken to cool a few hours and then debone. You can see the bones and gristle in the bag on the far right.

Skim and reserve all the chicken broth. All the fat from the skin and bones of the chicken cooks off and makes a wonderful tasting broth. I use the broth to cook the noodles in and it infuses the noodles with more chicken flavor. Cook noodles according to package directions in chicken broth. Drain.

Place chicken pieces in a large mixing bowl. Add golden mushroom soup. This soup is more expensive but it has the richest flavor and is the best one to use for this recipe. Dice up red pepper or you can use a jar of pimientos and add to bowl. Add black pepper and cooked noodles. I used a tri-color rotini. Add a 16-oz. bag frozen mixed vegetables (any veggie blend will work), cheddar cheese and diced onion.

Mix all the ingredients and place in a 10×14″ glass baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

I filled two large roaster pans and a 9×13″ baking dish with all the chicken mixture I made up. Cover casserole dishes with foil. Bake at 400 about 45 minutes or until mixture becomes bubbly. These pans were so full it took almost two hours to get them to doneness.

Remove hot pan from oven. Add biscuits. Bake about 15 minutes. Remove from oven again and sprinkle cheese over top of biscuits.

Bake another 5 minutes or so until biscuits are completely cooked through.

I tried the Pillsbury Grands, Jr. biscuits this time and they seemed to work out okay. The larger biscuits seem to burn on top before the insides are cooked!

    This recipe sounds very tasty to me, but I’ll definitely add a clove or two of finely minced garlic into it. I plan to use “Pillsbury Grand Biscuits’ when I make this dish, so I’m hoping it will all turn out well. BTW, “Pillsbury Grand Biscuits” are very delicious, so don’t be afraid to use them.

      Hey, Angela, I’ve tried them before and the biscuits usually burn before they’re cooked through in the middle! That’s why I ended up using the smaller ones. If your oven cooks them well, go for it! I think minced garlic would be a great addition. I like garlic in just about any savory dish. Hope you enjoy it. This has always been one of our favorite dishes throughout the years.

    I love that you added noodles to this! So hearty and filling! I know my kids would eat this!

      Thanks, Amber. It has always been one of our family’s favorite recipes. My kids would eat anything with noodles when they were younger! I was looking for a way to stretch the dish once and added them and after that we always made it with the noodles. Appreciate you stopping by and commenting.

      It is a delicious dish, and you can actually switch out the types of pasta, the soups, and the veggies to make it a little different each time. Yummy!

    I found this blog through Nuts for Treaure’s List! Wow! This recipe alone has me hungry and wanting to cook, but it’s after midnight, so I have to wait. I do love chicken and I do love veggies and I do love biscuits so I’ll be making it soon! Thanks!

      September 22, 2012 at 11:41 pm

      It’s really versatile, too. You can really use any kind of noodle, most of the creamed soups, and any combo of veggies. That way you can change it up a little and not feel like you’re eating the same thing each time. But our favorite way is with the golden mushroom soup.

      Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you have a chance to check out some more of the recipes and try them sometime. Please let me know how they turn out.

      This is such a wonderful casserole. You will love the flavors. It’s a great company recipe because you can double it and make a big pan. You can also just make the regular batch for family. We love this recipe.

    Teresa,   Do you know why I can’t seem to get these e-mails?  At the very beginning I was.  Now when I go to open it, it is simply a blank page, or the page shows up for just a second and then goes blank.   I love having these receipes available and so appreciate all your hard work.       Love,       Karen

      I can’t say enough about this recipe. It’s really fabulous. You can change up noodles, veggies, even soups to get variations in flavor with one main recipe! You can probably also change up the cheese. It’s a little work if you have to debone the chicken, but well worth the effort!!!
