Ingredients

CHICKEN:

  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 small shallot, diced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp dried rosemary
  • 3/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 3/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/3 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp dried marjoram
  • pinch dried sage
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 3 cups chicken stock (reduced sodium)
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2" pieces
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup frozen peas

BISCUITS:

  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt, divided
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups freshly shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley

Instructions

FOR THE CHICKEN:

  • Preheat oven to 450 F degrees.  Melt butter in 4 qt braising pan or 12" oven safe skillet over MED-HIGH heat.  Add carrots and shallot.  Cook until the shallot is softened, 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Sprinkle the flour, rosemary, oregano, basil, thyme, marjoram, sage, salt and pepper over the vegetables and stir to coat completely.  Cook for 1 minute to cook out the floury taste.
  • Add the chicken stock, chicken pieces, milk and peas to the pan.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer.  Cover the pan and cook 5 minutes.

BISCUITS:

  • While chicken mixture is simmering, add 2 Tbsp of the butter to a large microwave safe mixing bowl.  Microwave 30 seconds, or until the butter is melted.  Add flour, baking powder, sugar, garlic powder, and 1/2 tsp kosher salt.  Stir until combined.  Pour in the milk and stir until the flour is all wet; do not overmix.  Fold in the cheese

PUT IT ALL TOGETHER:

  • Uncover the pot and drop heaping spoonfuls of biscuits on top of the chicken stew.  Transfer to the oven and bake 10-12 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Melt remaining 2 Tbsp butter in a small bowl. Add the remaining 1/4 tsp kosher salt and dried parsley.  Stir with a pastry brush.  Remove pan from oven and brush the biscuits with the melted butter mixture.
