I love simple dinner ideas. Chicken in a Biscuit is a quick, easy meal that everyone in your family will love. After all, who doesn’t like cheese and bread, right? There are many variations to this simple recipe, and I recommend doubling it, as most people will want to have at least two. I also added other spices suited to my families taste, including more onion than was called for. To make this even simpler, use canned chicken. If you want to make this recipe lighter, you can use reduced fat cream cheese and skim milk. Pair with lemon broccoli and serve strawberries and cream for dessert for a great meal!
