  • 3 cups Chicken cooked
  • 3 cups Carrot chopped
  • 2 cups Celery chopped
  • 1 Onion sweet
  • 4 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 tube Pillsbury Biscuits flaky, grand
  • cup Flour
  • 3 tablespoon Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Thyme ground
  • ½ teaspoon Black Pepper


  • Add olive oil and the vegetables to a frying pan and cook over medium high heat for 5-7 minutes, or until soft.
  • Add the butter and stir until melted.
  • Add the flour and stir to coat all of the vegetables.
  • Gradually stir in the chicken broth.
  • Stir in the thyme and ¼ teaspoon of the black pepper.
  • Stir in the chicken .
  • Place the entire mixture into an ungreased 9 x 13 baking dish.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Tear the biscuits into bite sized pieces and place on top of the stew.
  • Garnish with the remaining ¼ teaspoon of black pepper.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until the biscuits are a golden brown


  • Using a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken will save you time.
  • Ground thyme provides a much bolder flavor than using dried thyme leaves or fresh thyme.
  • Choose a chicken broth that is not too high in sodium. The one I use is moderate with 560mg per cup.
  • When chopping up the celery stalks, I include the celery leaves. They will give the stew a nice flavor.
  • Feel free to substitute your favorite vegetables.
  • Consider adding a teaspoon of tumeric. This spice has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties and will give the stew a nice deep yellow color.
