boneless chicken breasts (i used 8 chicken thighs) boiled and shredded
2 c
bisquick, or self rising flour
2 c
chicken broth, from chicken above
1 stick
unsalted butter
2 c
2% milk, or whatever you prefer
15 - 20 ounces cream of chicken soup
3 tsp
chicken bouillon granules or cubes
1/2 tsp
ground sage
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 c
any vegetables you like, or none at all


1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in sauce pan with enough water to cover the chicken. Bring to a boil, then turn off the heat; place a lid on your pot and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes to finish cooking. Remove chicken from stock (reserve the stock) and allow to cool, then shred the chicken.
When building the layered casserole, do not mix the layers.
2Layer 1 - In 9x13 casserole dish, melt 1 stick of butter. Spread shredded chicken over butter. Sprinkle black pepper and dried sage over this layer. Note: If you want to serve this as a pot pie, add a layer of vegetables now. I used fresh corn from my freezer( thawed) and 1/2 cup diced sweet onion
3Layer 2 - In small bowl, mix milk and Bisquick. Slowly pour over chicken.
4Layer 3 - In medium bowl, whisk together 2 cups of the chicken stock (strained, if needed), chicken granules and soup. Once blended, slowly pour over the Bisquick layer.
5I added some shredded parmesan cheese, and panko bread crumbs on top, for some crunch.

Bake for 60 min,or till golden brown, remove from oven, and let stand for 5 min before cutting..ENJOY!

This casserole is so tasty, and such a nice comfort food...
