Instructions

  1. Cook chicken breasts in a pot of salted boiling water until just cooked. Take out of water and let cool. Chop or shred when cool.

  2. In a medium pot add butter and onion. Cook until translucent. Add defrosted veggies and mushrooms if your using them and sautee a bit.
  3. Add soup salt, pepper and milk or half and half. Add chopped or shredded chicken and simmer until heated through.
  4. Pour over Puff Pastry of whatever biscuit your using. Great over mashed potatoes also!! YUM!!!
  5. Note: I always double this recipe. It freezes well and comes in handy on a night you don’t feel like cooking
