 This is an easy dinner that the whole family loves.  I use a 1/2 a rotisserie chicken in this dish (and freeze the other half of the chicken in a Ziploc bag for next time!).  Once the biscuits are browned, the dish is covered with foil and baked a little more to soften the biscuits and give it a moist texture.

Serve this up with a side salad for a yummy weeknight meal!

  1. Absolutely perfect! So easy, and we all loved it!

  2. Cutting biscuits in half, does that mean horizontally, or vertically?

  3. Looks good! Did you use the Pillsbury Grands biscuits, or the smaller ones? Also, is that an 10 or 12 inch skillet?

  4. Just made this, followed the recipe exactly, and everyone thought it was a great weekday of all no leftovers..

  5. I assume its a regular size can of cream of chicken soup is that correct?

  6. What is the red thing in the picture? There isn’t anything red in the recipe.
