1/2 tsp. dried sage

2 1/2 c. diced cooked chicken

Solid American comfort food. Creamy sauce enrobes leftover cooked chicken and your favorite vegetables with a crispy biscuit to top it off.
Yield: 6 to 8 servings
You will need a high-sided pan that can go from stovetop to oven.
In a Dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat. Add diced onion. Cover and cook 7 - 8 min., stirring occasionally.
While onions are cooking, mix the biscuit dough. In a medium bowl, place flour, baking powder, sugar, salt. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or just work the dough with your fingers. Add milk, and work the dough until it comes together. Set aside.
Add flour to the onions and stir to mix in thoroughly.
Stir in chicken stock. Add milk. Stir in sage, thyme, chicken and vegetables. Add salt. Let cook a few minutes while you roll out the biscuits. Preheat oven to 375°F.
On a floured surface (like a pastry cloth or your counter or a big cutting board), press out or roll out to about 1/2 in. thick. Cut out biscuits using a biscuit cutter (or a round cookie cutter or the top of a glass).
Remove chicken mixture from heat. Lay biscuits on top of the chicken and sauce with edges just touching.
Bake at 375°F for about 30 min., until filling is bubbly and biscuits are golden brown on top.
