How about another new recipe to try??
This recipe also originated with Marmee Dear's Greene Acres Old-Fashioned Cookery Book, but of course, I tweaked it just a bit! ;)
I gave this recipe a try last night for supper, and it's old-fashioned goodness was a real family pleaser!! The only problem (except for the fact that it wasn't done in time to eat before church, and we had to eat afterwards!) was that some people saw this pan and got all excited because they thought I had made cinnamon rolls!!! Cinnamon rolls these are not; but delicious they are! :)
Cook whole chicken or chicken leg quarters in water. Debone and shred the chicken, saving the broth.
Make your favorite biscuit dough (or use recipe below).
Roll out dough and spread with soft butter.
Sprinkle pieces of cooked, shredded chicken over dough.
Roll it up as you would to make cinnamon rolls, then slice it into 1" slices.
Place the slices in a greased pan and bake them at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Make gravy with the chicken broth, while roll-ups are baking.
Serve the roll-ups and pass the gravy to ladle over the top of each! Delicious!!! :)
The Easiest Biscuits:
This recipe is super quick and easy and is made in your food processor!
4 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour (2 cups can be whole wheat)
2 Tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 stick (8 Tablespoons) cold butter, cut into pieces
2 cups milk
Put flour, baking powder, salt and butter pieces into food processor. Pulse until mixture is coarse and crumbly.
Pour milk into tube at top; pulse just until mixed.
Remove from food processor and turn out onto a floured surface. With floured hands, knead 10 to 12 times. Roll out to 1/4" thick for recipe above (1/2" thick for biscuits).
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup unbleached, all-purpose (or whole wheat) flour
4 cups reserved chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
In large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Stir flour into butter with a wire whisk, cooking until it starts to brown. Whisk in chicken broth. Add salt and pepper. Cook and stir until thickened. Serve hot and ladle generously over chicken roll-ups.
