One-Pot Chicken, Squash & Garlic-Cheddar Biscuits

  • SERVES: 6
  • PREP: 15 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 1 hour

Less mess to clean up, more time to eat comforting, cheesy goodness.

This isn’t your grandma’s chicken and biscuits. It is the same hearty dish you know and love, but with a few twists. Butternut squash for some sneaky veggies and color, and garlic-cheddar biscuits on top that may remind you of the buttery goodness you eat with seafood. This dish uses the shortcut of Bisquick (one of our pantry staples) to make prep easy, and it all happens in one pot so it’s also easy to clean up.
