$1.08 per serving ~ Chicken and Biscuits

It was a crazy weekend. I'm having a tough time adjusting back to the life of a working mom. Good thing we had a lot of leftovers in the house for Friday and Saturday!

Chicken and Biscuits ~ $1.08 per serving
1 16 oz. package frozen mixed vegetables ($1.00)
2 cups cooked chicken, cubed ($2.00)
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted ($0.70)
3/4 cup milk ($0.25)
1 cup shredded cheese ($1.50)

1.5 cups baking mix ($0.60)
2/3 cup milk ($0.20)

1/2 cup shredded cheese ($0.75)
1/2 cup french fried onions ($0.50)

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix together all ingredients for filling and spread into a 13 X 9 baking dish. Cover and bake 15 minutes.
2. Combine baking mix and milk in another bowl. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto chicken mixture. Bake, uncovered for 25 minute or until biscuits are golden brown.
3. Top with cheese and onions. Bake 3-4 minutes longer or until cheese melts.
Makes 6 servings

The Verdict
We all really enjoyed this one. The chicken was already cooked (I defrosted and grilled 6chicken breasts on Friday so I would have some on hand for recipes I wanted to make this week) so it was super fast and easy. This makes 6 VERY large servings, so if you served it with a big salad, it would probably feed 8! It was a surprisingly elegant presentation... I could make this for company!
