- 1 can chicken broth
- 1 large can refrigerated biscuits
- 1 8-oz. can chicken meat or 1 cup coarsely diced cooked chicken (optional)
- 1/2 cup half and half or undiluted evaporated milk
- salt to taste
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper
In saucepan, bring chicken broth to boil. Add salt to taste and pepper. If canned chicken meat is used, break up and flake meat with fork and add to boiling broth. (If home cooked, diced chicken is used, simply add to broth.) Open can of biscuits. Pinch each biscuit roughly into quarters. Flatten each quarter and drop into boiling broth. Reduce heat and simmer about 4 to 5 minutes. Just before removing from heat, stir in the 1/2 cup half and half or undiluted evaporated milk. Serves 3 to 4 people.
Some people prefer this recipe without the addition of the chicken meat. Use the buttermilk canned biscuit in preference to the regular flavored canned biscuit for a more Southern homemade flavor to the dish.
