The gravy coating the bottom of each biscuit is heavenly! A definitely comfort meal. I picked off he remaining meat from the Costco rotisserie chicken we bought the other day to use in this recipe. I have never made this meal exactly the same, so feel free to substitute fresh, cooked veggies or actual gravy as you have on hand.
This recipe was inspired by a Taste of Home recipe of Turkey a la King.
GF Chicken a la King
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup King Arthur GF All Purpose Flour
1 can Swanson Chicken broth
1 cup milk
1 can mixed veggies, drained
1 can sliced potatoes, drained
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Water, if needed
GF Drop Biscuit dough (see recipe below)
Melt butter in a sauce large pan over medium heat. Then, stir in flour until smooth. Slowly whisk in broth and milk until smooth. Bring to a boil, stirring very often to keep flour from settling to the bottom. Turn to low and add salt, pepper, veggies, and chicken and heat through. Add tap water if mixture is too thick – I needed to add 1/2 cup.
Preheat the oven to 350*. Pour into 9×13 glass pan. Top with GF Drop Biscuit dough- creating 9, evenly spaced biscuits. Bake for 25 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown on top.
GF Drop Biscuits
1 1/2 cups white rice flour
1 1/2 cups tapioca flour
1/2 cup potato starch
1/2 cup soy flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp Xanthan gum
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 stick butter, cold
1 1/4 cups milk with 1 Tbsp vinegar added
1 1/4 cups water
Whisk together the flours, baking soda, salt, Xanthan gum, and baking soda. Mix in the butter by cutting into the flour using a pastry blender until completely mixed on and no butter chucks remain. Add the milk, water, and egg and stir until completely blended.
**To use in GF Chicken a la King, take 1/2 the dough and drop biscuit shapes on top of gravy mix and then bake.
Drop biscuit shapes onto baking sheet or pizza stone and bake at 350* for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Makes 16 biscuits.
