Creamy Garlic Chicken and Buttermilk Biscuits

Since starting my pre-wedding diet a few weeks ago, I’ve been pretty good about eating healthy. Lots of fruits/vegetables and lean proteins, limited carb intake, etc. And, any desserts I make get pawned off on other people. Most days, it’s actually not so bad. I’ve almost gotten used to eating right and exercising. But this morning I woke up with a serious craving for biscuits. Big, buttery, flaky biscuits smothered in creamy stuff. It was a craving that couldn’t be denied.

Lucky for me (but not so much for my waistline),  the Progress Recipe Starter pack I got last week contained a can of creamy roasted garlic sauce and a recipe for Creamy Garlic Chicken and Cheddar Biscuits. I opted to make buttermilk biscuits from scratch rather than use Pillsbury, and tweaked the creamy chicken just a little bit, but otherwise stuck with the Progresso recipe. And guys? It was so good! Kind of like chicken pot pie, but with a buttery, flaky biscuit instead of pie crust. Hearty but somehow light at the same time, it was the perfect lunch for a crisp fall day. (Dan ate two huge helpings!)

    Good Morning,

    This recipe is lovely. I woke up this morning craving for biscuits and jelly. I came across your website and I liked the way your biscuits looked. I did not have the buttermilk so I used milk. They came out light with a nice smooth texture. They look rustic but not crusty. They were not as brown as I would like since my apartment has electric oven and I am still learning to adjust my baking since my breads, crusts and cookies come out dry. Thanks for your passion. I got a good biscuit recipe. :)
