This dish is the epitome of comfort food for us. There's nothing better than a hearty chicken dish where your biscuits are built in and you get some with every bite! We initially assumed a meal like this would be complicated and messy, but not with this recipe: it's basically a one-pot wonder, using only your Dutch oven (or casserole dish) and the assistance of your trusty food processor or mixer to create a full dinner with meat, veggies and a side.
We're looking out for you (as always) in trying to find ways to cut down the prep time and effort, that's why we use rotisserie chicken here that deliver on flavor and don't take away from the other ingredients. This dish is a crowd-pleaser and you won't be disappointed; it comes together easily, and then you can kick back and relax while the oven works its magic!
