Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Crisco, lard, or butter
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 3 cups cooked, cut up chicken
  • 10 ounces frozen peas
  • 1 small jar pimientos, drained
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Instructions

  • MAKE THE BISCUITS:
    Preheat the oven to 450 F.
    Cut shortening into flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in milk.
    Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead 10 times. Roll ½” thick and cut out using a cookie cutter (I use the large lids from ball canning jars).
    Put on ungreased cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes or until just a hint of light brown.
  • MAKE THE CREAMED CHICKEN:
    While the biscuits are baking, melt butter over medium heat. Add flour, pepper, and ground mustard and use whisk to cook for 1-2 minutes over medium heat until it smells nutty and there is just a hint of it turning light brown.
    Slowly add milk, stirring constantly until it thickens, 4-5 minutes.
    Add chicken, peas, and drained pimientos and cook over medium heat until peas are softened and chicken hot - about 10 minutes.
    Add cheese; once melted it is ready to serve over biscuits.
