This is a very delicious chicken dish and I love having fresh biscuits with my chicken.

I got this recipe from an old cookbook 20+ years ago but can't remember which one, but I've changed it to my liking.

This recipe can easily be down sized for serving of 2 or increased for a serving of 8 or more.
