  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup carrots peeled and sliced into 1/4 inch thick circles
  • 1 medium white onion chopped
  • 2 6 ounce packages baby portobello mushrooms wiped, stems removed and cut to quarters
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1/2 cup white wine you can use extra chicken broth if you don't want to use the wine
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed black pepper
  • 8 cups cooked chicken shredded or in cubes
  • 8 small frozen biscuits or 6 large frozen biscuits like Pillsbury Grands still frozen


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • In an oven proof deep pan with a lid (like a cast iron dutch oven), melt the butter and add the carrots and onion and cook 5 minutes.
  • Add the mushrooms and cook 5 minutes more.
  • Add the garlic and cook about 30 seconds.
  • Add the wine and cook 1 minute.
  • Add the flour and stir to cook out the raw flour flavor, about 1 minute.
  • Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Cook until the sauce thickens and coats the back of a spoon--about 6 or 7 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat and add the cream, vinegar, rosemary, parsley, salt and pepper and the chicken and stir well.
  • Top with the biscuits and cover slightly with your dutch oven lid.
  • Bake 30-35 minutes until the biscuits are cooked through. You can remove the lid for the last 5 or 6 minutes of baking if you wish to help the biscuits brown.
