    Ahh, comfort food! This is a wonderful chicken and biscuits recipe. I love that it doesn't call for cans of prepared soup, it's all homemade but still very easy. Changes I made: half and half instead of cream. No garlic, no almonds. Used peas/carrots combo instead of plain peas. I used all the salt and pepper called for and even added a little extra salt. Served over baking powder biscuits from the freezer section. YUMMMY. Thanks, I love it!  -  28 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was very good on a cold blustery day. To cut calories I used 2% milk instead of cream. Delicious! The only thing I would change about this recipe is that next time I will add some carrots and celery.  -  16 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a good recipie, but it needed a little more. I doubled the amount of seasonings and added some chicken boullion. This made it a lot more flavorful. I would also recommend increasing the amount of liquids. Just taste it and add more seasonings if you need it. Really good!  -  27 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
