Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place the biscuits 1 to 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven until the biscuits are golden brown, 13 to 17 minutes. Remove biscuits to cool, and set aside. Cut meat from the rotisserie chicken into bite-size pieces, and set aside.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion, carrots, mushrooms, salt, and black pepper. Cook and stir until the onion has softened, the carrots are tender, and the mushrooms have released their liquid, about 7 minutes. Stir in the red bell pepper and cook for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour to form a thick paste. Continue cooking, whisking constantly, until the flour has lost its raw smell, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the white wine, increase the heat to medium-high, and simmer for 1 minute. Whisk in the chicken broth and whipping cream and bring the sauce to a boil. Reduce the heat, stir in the shredded chicken, and simmer for 7 minutes.
  5. Pour the chicken mixture into the skillet containing the vegetables and adjust the heat to medium. Add the asparagus and cook until the asparagus pieces are tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in the peas and tarragon and mix well.
  6. Place a split biscuit on each plate and pour the chicken mixture over the biscuits.

Lovely recipe and we all enjoyed it. I followed the recipe and my family loved the different textures with the soft biscuits, perfectly cooked vegetables and creamy sauce. This is a very hearty dish. I seasoned with salt and pepper through all the steps and used the full TBS of tarragon. The one comment that was consistent with everyone was that it was a little bland with the minimal seasonings and herbs. I have added this to our "Sunday Dinner" rotation and will tweak it a little with more seasonings. Thanks for sharing!
