Take-out Tuesday, French Onion Chicken Bubble-up

This is an easy weeknight dinner,

pretty much a “dump and go” type casserole…

lots of flavors and textures in the simple 6 ingredient dinner!

It’s a casserole of chicken in a creamy sauce

surrounded by biscuit pieces

and topped with cheese and French fried onions

I started by poaching boneless chicken breasts

You could also use rotisserie chicken or leftover cooked chicken

Poaching chicken is super easy,

put it in a sauce pan,

cover it with chicken broth,

bring it to a boil and cover then turn off the burner

Leave the pan on the hot burner for 30 minutes

Remove the chicken from the broth and it will shred like a dream

Mix the soup and onion dip together

You can do this right in the casserole dish

After the sauce is mixed, stir in chicken and cheese

At this point you can cover and refrigerate it until baking later

Right before baking,

cut the biscuits into 4-6 pieces

and submerge them in the sauce and chicken mixture

Bake for 20 minutes

Top with French fried onions and bake for 5 more minutes

or until biscuits are golden and cooked through

Serve it with a simple vegetable or a salad

You can also substitute sour cream for the onion dip

and top the dish with buttery cracker crumbs or crushed potato chips

This recipe is adapted from Plain Chicken
