Additional Notes: 

This gravy can also be served over rice or pasta, if desired.

*If you would like to roll out your biscuits and cut into shape, reduce the amount of milk to 3/4 cup rather than 1 cup.

Tammy's mom created this recipe after being served a similar meal in the hospital after having one of her children. Bet you've never heard of hospital food being so good that you want to make it at home! ;)

Tammy's Review: 

My rating: 10/10. This is a simple yet delicious meal. I make it when I have leftover chicken to use up. It's good enough to serve to guests, but easy enough to make for lunch. The vegetables add a nice color and help round out the meal.

Please see the recipe above for my full review! Thanks! ~Tammy


This is not only one of my favorite recipes, but a great way to use up leftover chicken! The biscuits are so easy to make, and we like the leftover ones with honey on them!


I was nervous about making real biscuits. Here at home they either come frozen or in a can!! But I did it!! They were so easy to do also. I will try to roll them out next time. The gravy is similar to a chicken pot pie filling. I did saute a whole onion and half of a bunch of celery to add to the gravy. I did not use corn, but added one cup of cubed white potato. All else was the same. It gets so nice and thick. Please let your mom know she created a satisfying & tasty meal! DeDe


At first by looking at the picture, we weren't sure but we made it and it was GREAT! the biscuits were so simple yet delicious. We also found out the left over gravy makes great pot pie filling. Thank you Tammy! : )


I jumped on here last night to double check the biscuit ingredients, and noticed that I hadn't reviewed this. I thought I had already had. I made this first probably about a year ago, and now I make it a lot. I use the biscuit recipe pretty frequently for quick biscuits that I don't have to roll out and cut and make a mess on the counter! ;o)


This dinner is so filling. It did take me a little while to make it though, probably because it was my first time doing so. We used large biscuits (same recipe). It was really tasty, and filling. Don't really need anything to go along with this meal. Will definitely make this again!


This is pretty decent and much healthier than the "Homestyle Bake" that is very similar. As someone who had never made homemade biscuits, I was a bit overwhelmed preparing this. But now that I know how to make biscuits, I'm sure I won't be so overwhelmed next time. It isn't as flavorful as I thought it would be, but it taste just good enough to please. I served it with biscuits and mashed potatoes and wanted to point out that it taste good over mashed potatoes, too.


I made this chicken gravy tonight. It was a big hit! I used the water I boiled the chicken in rather than chicken broth and frozen mixed vegetables. My children loved it!

I didn't use the biscuit recipe. I had pinned a recipe for 7-up biscuits that I wanted to try. I don't usually stock Bisquick and I purchased it for the biscuit recipe. I bet I could use your recipe for biscuits and replace the milk with 1/2 cup of sour cream and 1/2 cup of 7-up.

As always ~ thanks!!!
