Easy Chicken and Biscuit Pot Pie

Last night I made one of my family favorites. Easy Chicken and Biscuit Pot Pie.

1 container Pillsbury biscuits
1 1/2 c frozen mixed veggies
2 microwaved potatoes diced
1 pkg or can of gravy of gravy or use gravy recipe following this one
2-3 boneless chicken breasts diced
salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 and once heated put biscuits in for 5 minutes on a cookie sheet. Microwave 2 potatoes in the microwave for 8 minutes being sure to poke holes in the potatoes. Remove from oven and dice. They will be very hot so be careful!  I like the taste of regular potatoes but you may omit them if you wish.
Saute chicken until no longer pink about 5-6 minutes. Add the frozen mixed veggies. Pour the gravy into the chicken and veggies. I like to use a casserole dish.  Heat till veggies unfreeze. Top with pre-heated biscuits and bake for 15-20 minutes till the biscuits are baked through. Each person gets 2 biscuits and the chicken gravy mixture.

Home made gravy

2 TBSP flour
2 TBSP butter
1 c chicken stock
salt and pepper

Heat the 2TBSP butter in a sauce pan. Add the flour when the butter is bubbly. Use a whisk to incorporate the flour into the butter. Let brown for 1-2 minutes. Add the stock and continue to stir getting all the flour lumps out. Season with the salt and pepper and bring to a boil. The gravy will thicken upon boiling.
