Harvest Chicken and Biscuits

A super simple and delicious one-dish dinner to warm your chilly nights. While reading some of my favorite blogs and looking for inspiration for dinner one night, I came across Debbie’s Mocha Me and found that she made this terrific Chicken Recipe. It was so simple and having all of the ingredients, plus some, I thought to try it out. Trying desperately to get as many fruits and vegetables in my family as I possibly can I added celery, sweet potatoes, and apples to the mix then topped it all off with biscuits for a comforting, Autumn, one-dish dinner.

Harvest Chicken and Biscuits- based on Debbie’s Chicken Recipe
3.5 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 package Good Season’s Italian Dressing Mix
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 stalks celery, sliced
1 sweet potato, diced small
3 small gala apples, cored and sliced

One 12 count bag Pillsbury frozen buttermilk biscuits

In a large bowl mix sugar and dressing mix well. Add in chicken, vegetables, and apples and toss until well coated. Pour into a large greased baking dish being sure that the chicken is on top. Bake for 1 hour in a 375 degree oven or until veggies are fork tender. Top with biscuits and bake another 18 minutes. Serve in bowls. Serves about 8.

I think I would like to try the sugar and salad dressing mix over wings some time for a quick and tasty appetizer.

    This does look so nice and comfy! I used to love pilsbury biscuits when I was grown up, but I'm still terrified of opening the container.

    Happy Birthday to your MOM!

    Chicken and biscuits was one of my favorite meals growing up. I don't make it as much as I should for my family. And I love how you added more veggies!

    i really enjoy apples in savory dishes, so i have no doubt that this would be a hit with me. meanwhile, i always think of those "chicken in a biskit" crackers when i see chicken and biscuits eaten together. is that weird? those crackers were good!

    My children just don't seem to like biscuits except as a vehicle for eggs and sausage. They'd just pick off the biscuits which totally make the meal!

    This is one of those southern dishes you see much around here. Biscuits for mopping up sauce? YES!
