 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!

Pillsbury Biscuits can be purchased in the refrigerator section of most grocery stores (any variety will work in this recipe). If you cannot find pillsbury biscuits, you can substitute homemade baking powder biscuits in their place.
