Chicken and Biscuits From Scratch

Chicken And Biscuits From Scratch

One of my all time favorite winter comfort foods is Chicken and Biscuits, and today was the perfect day!

The only way to make it around here starts with roasting a whole chicken, so it’s a bit of a process but it is definitely worth it! So here we go!

Ingredients

shredded chicken from a whole roaster chicken
drippings from the roaster chicken

6 Tbsp       butter

6 Tbsp       flour
2 cups       chicken stock (approximately)
                    salt
                    pepper
 

Directions

Start by roasting a whole chicken, in this case a whole rooster!
If you have a recipe for roast chicken that you prefer skip these few steps. If not, you can use my recipe for The Perfect Roast Chicken!
Remove the chicken and reserve the juices from the bottom of the pan.
Take the meat off the bones and shred it. At this point I set the bones and skin aside to make a stock to can for my next batch or for chicken soup!
In a medium sauce pan melt butter and add flour, salt and pepper to make a roux.
Add those juices saved from your roasting pan and then add chicken stock until you reach the desired thickness of gravy, whisking constantly.
Add your shredded chicken and serve over mashed potatoes and biscuits!

[…] Everyone needs a good roast chicken recipe. Beyond being beautiful on your table served next to comfort foods like roasted vegetables, preferably from your harvest, and mashed potatoes, you can break these birds down to use the shredded chicken for an endless number of meals. My personal favorite is Chicken and Biscuits! […]
