Creamed Chicken and Biscuits Casserole is a blast from the past
I love the way that food can sometimes bring back those warm, cozy feelings of days gone by. I can still remember the soup that mom would feed me when I was home sick or my Aunt’s pie that always had a prominent place at the holiday meal. And nothing quite warms me up like pulling a creamy chicken and biscuit casserole out of the oven – just like Grandma’s.
Whether you’re looking for a use for leftover turkey or simply making something warm on a cold winter’s night, this creamed chicken and biscuits casserole will do the trick. In more ways than one!
Grandma’s Creamed Chicken and Biscuits: A Hearty Go-To Meal
Grandma’s time was a simpler time in many ways. They definitely weren’t counting calories or watching what they ate – not on the farms in northeast Kansas anyways! People of that time got all the workout they needed from sun-up to sun-down, which meant they were ready for a filling, hearty meal at the end of a long day.
This creamed chicken and biscuits casserole would have been just that. Of course, they probably didn’t use a rotisserie chicken from the store, but you can! I usually use my Instant Pot to cook the chicken, though, because I can throw in several chicken thighs, which are inexpensive but still full of flavor. Then in minutes I’ve got hot, moist, shredded chicken ready to use! (You can also throw them in frozen if necessary! Just double the cooking time. I love that about the Instant Pot!) Leftover turkey would also be a great option.

Whatever you use, your shredded poultry will be bathed in creamy chicken soup, cheese, butter – all those great things Grandma would have had available to her on the farm. Then baked until the biscuits are golden and bubbly. You are guaranteed to serve up some smiles with this creamy, cozy blast from the past.
