Chicken Under a Biscuit Casserole

So yesterday I spent the day demolishing my deck for the new one I am starting to build in a few weeks. It was supposed to rain by noon, so my plan was to work outside until the rain started then move inside for work on the blog. Well the rain didn’t start until after 6:00 pm. So I kept working on the deck until 5:30. No blog work, but I still needed to make dinner.

Sunday I had taken some chicken out of the freezer to use this week. I also had cauliflower, mushrooms and fresh corn, that were needing to be cooked, before they found their way to the trash bin. What I came up with was this fairly healthy simple chicken casserole. This is a quick and easy recipe which allows you to substitute whatever items you have in the fridge that are on their last legs.www.dadwhats4dinner.com

Makes great leftovers for lunch the next day. Trust me I just had it for lunch.

My kids loved this and didn’t even notice the smashed cauliflower for the bottom crust. Smashed cauliflower adds a nutritious nice flavor to the dish.




  • Pre-heat oven to 375°F.
  • Place cauliflower in large pot of boiling salted water. Boil for 10 minutes. Remove cauliflower using strainer or slotted spoon and place in a mixing bowl.www.dadwhts4dinner.com
  • In same pot, boil corn for 10 minutes. Drain and rinse corn in cold water. Cut corn off cob and set aside.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large saute pan over medium high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Add chicken to pan and brown, stirring often. Remove chicken form pan and set aside.
  • In same pan, add remaining tablespoon of oil. Add onion and mushrooms, saute for 5-7 minutes. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute. Sprinkle onion mixture with salt and pepper.
  • Turn heat down to medium and add 2 cans of mushroom soup, 1/3 cup half and half, and sour cream. Stir to combine and bring to a slight boil. Add cooked chicken and corn. Mix thoroughly and heat through on low. www.dadwhats4dinner.com
  • While corn is boiling, combine cauliflower, butter, cheese, salt,  pepper and remaining 1/3 half & half. Blend on medium until cauliflower resembles mashed potatoes.
  • Grease a 11×15 baking dish with cooking spray. Spread mashed cauliflower in bottom of dish. Layer chicken mixture over cauliflower.
  • Split biscuits in half and layer on top of chicken. Sprinkle biscuits with garlic seasoning.
  • Cover and bake for 20 minutes . Uncover and continue baking, for another ten minutes, until biscuits are browned and sauce is bubbly.www.dadwhats4dinner.com

  1. This looks so delicious! I love that you used Grands biscuits on top. I also love all the other flavors in it. Total comfort food! Wish I had some for lunch right now. 🙂

    1. Thanks Shari it turned out great. I usually come up with my best recipes when pressed for time and needing to use what I have on hand. Most of the time it turns out sometimes not. I was pleasantly surprised with the mashed cauliflower.

  2. Sometimes we have to clean out the fridge! I’ve got a “clean out the fridge’ casserole on my blog, too! 😀 Looks super yummy and totally comforting!

  3. There is something so satisfying about making a meal from what you have on hand. I think it comes from being a child of a child of the Depression. Waste not, want not….. Great job!
