Chicken and Biscuits

I had to reinvent another meal tonight. I've found it really easy to eat healthy meals, but the truth is that none of it is all that interesting when you have to limit your ingredients to things that won't expand your waistline. I have been hitting a bit of a road block lately. I was completely short on time tonight for dinner, so this meal takes help from the freezer, pantry and a pre-cooked chicken! My darling little teething baby has been in rare form over the last week and it has made things difficult around the say the least.

Chicken and Biscuits

  • 1 pre-cooked rotisserie chicken (1/2 cup diced chicken for each serving)
  • frozen stew vegetables (2/3 cup for each serving)
  • fat free chicken gravy (I used 1/4 cup for each serving)
  • Bisquick Healthy Heart (1/3 cup for each serving)
  • Egg white (1 egg white per serving)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
Preheat oven to 450 degrees

In a small bowl combine the Bisquick, egg white, water, garlic powder and parsley. Stir to combine.

(if you use the liquid egg whites, 1 egg white = 3 tablespoons of "all whites".

You can either drop this mixture with a spoon onto a baking sheet to make a nice big biscuit, or you can bake it in a dish of your choosing to create a better "shape". It will taste exactly the same no matter how you do it. I choose to use a round dish to create a more round shape for my biscuit. Spray the bottom with cooking spray to make removal easier. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until the biscuit it cooked through (you can check the center with a toothpick if you need to).

While the biscuits are cooking, microwave your veggies (according to package instructions), chop up the chicken and heat up the gravy. I wasn't kidding when I said this was quick and I took short cuts!

(I added a little salt & pepper to my veggies before I popped them in the microwave)

Heat up your gravy...

When the biscuits are done, remove them from your baking dish and cut it in half. Arrange 2/3 cup veggies, 1/2 cup chicken and 1/4 cup gravy on each biscuit. Simple, fast, delicious and VERY filling!

This wasn't a "fancy" dinner, but sometimes I really just crave comfort food! Each serving totals up to only 321 calories! Not too shabby! Enjoy!

I'm definitely passing this recipe onto my father in law. He is trying so hard to eat heart healthy meals but he obviously loves his comfort foods. Great recipe!
