Comforting Chicken and Biscuits.

Its cold and rainy outside, a perfect evening to make some comfort food. Chicken and biscuits are my definition of comfort food.

1 small onion
3 carrots
3 stalks of celery
2 Tbls butter
1 Tbls olive oil
3 Tbls flour
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
3/4 cup half and half 
2 cups leftover chicken cut into bite sized pieces
1 tsp thyme
1 Tbls fresh parsley
cayenne pepper to taste
salt and pepper to taste
a tube a biscuit dough (I like Trader Joes because it contains no hydrogenated oil or chemicals)
1 cup cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Chop all veggies to small pieces and saute in butter and oil. Saute for about 5 minutes till veggies are tender but still have some crunch to them. Add flour and cook one more minute. Next add your chicken broth to pan, cook till thickened. Then mix in half and half and spices. Pour into a baking dish. I like to use my cast iron skillet so I can put it right in the oven. Place your biscuit dough evenly on top of the chicken mixture and sprinkle on the cheese. Bake 20-30 minutes till biscuits are cooked through and browned on top. Enjoy and feel comforted!
