I actually made up an original recipe! Holy cow! Or should I say chicken…

I boiled chicken breasts this morning to use for my planned dinner, only to realize that I was missing a seriously important ingredient to prepare my first plan. I looked through what was already here and decided to make up a little something of my own.

What you will need:

Chicken breast shredded (can make ahead of time or just pull some from a rotisserie)
About a cup of cooked baby carrots (I boiled mine in a little water while making the gravy)
Soured gravy mix (the white gravy, or homemade if you like)
Can of biscuits (I used Publix)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven as directed by biscuit directions.
2. Shred chicken.
3. Mix gravy according to instructions on packet.
4. Place biscuits in a baking dish (sprayed with nonstick or greased).
5. Layer chicken on top of biscuits.
6. Slice carrots if you like and place over chicken.
7. Evenly pour gravy on top.
8. Bake according to biscuit directions.
9. Enjoy!

**you could add celery, peas, corn, onions, Whatever you fancy. Tastes like chicken and dumplings without the mushy dumpling taste. Yummy! It was a hit with my toddlers.

I made this recipe from Six Sisters with spaghetti and garlic crescent rolls. I followed the recipe (except for halving the breasts; I just cooked them longer) and just served with spaghetti and basil tomato pasta sauce.

Avocado Chicken Parmesan

To make the garlic crescent rolls, I simply unrolled the rolls, melted butter and mixed in some minced garlic. I brushed the mix over the rolls, placed a little shredded mozzarella inside, then rolled them up and baked according to the directions on package.
