One Pot Chicken Stew + Biscuits
Why we love it:
- 5 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter (divided)
- 1 pound Chicken Breast (boneless skinless cut into 1-inch chunks)
- 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Black Pepper
- 1⁄2 Red Onion
- 2 Carrots (washed and diced)
- 2 cloves Garlic (minced)
- 1⁄2 pound Cremini Mushrooms
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Dried Oregano
- 2 cups Flour (plus 1 Tablespoon)
- 1 Lemon (zested and juiced)
- 2 teaspoons Cider Vinegar
- 4 cups Chicken Stock
- 2⁄3 cup Whole Milk (divided)
- 1⁄4 Tablespoon Baking Soda
- 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
- 3 Tablespoons Canola Oil
- 1⁄2 pound Zucchini
- 1 cup Corn (could be frozen or kernels from a cob)
1. PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 450 DEGREES
Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large pot over medium high heat. Dice the chicken into 1 inch pieces and season chicken with half of the total salt and all of the pepper. Place chicken pieces in the stockpot and cook until lightly browned and cooked through, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from the pot and set aside.
While the chicken is sautéing, dice the onion, carrots, and garlic.
When the chicken is done and out of the pot, reduce the heat to medium and add the remaining butter. Add onion, carrots and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally until fragrant, about 3-4 minutes.
Meanwhile, thinly slice the mushrooms. Add them as soon as they’re ready. Add the dried oregano.
After all of the veggies have cooked for about 6 minutes and are tender and reduced, sprinkle 1 Tablespoon of flour over top. Cook the flour, stirring everything well in the pot so it’s coated.
Zest in the lemon. Then squeeze it directly in the pot and add the cider vinegar too. Whisk well as this bubbles up. Pour in the stock while whisking. Add the whole milk. Scrape the bottom of the pot well during this time. Bring to a simmer, whisking occasionally. Cook for about 10 minutes.
While the soup cooks, whip up the biscuits.
In a large bowl whisk to combine the dry ingredients. : 2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp kosher salt.
Then whisk together the wet: 1 cup plain green yogurt and 3 Tbsp oil.
Stir until just combined and a wet dough forms. Don't overstir.
Line a baking sheet. Scoop about 10-12 even piles of dough on the pan, about 3 Tablespoons each. Place in the middle of the oven and bake for about 15 minutes. They will be golden on the outside and fully cooked in the middle when done.
5. FINISH SOUP
Dice the zucchini and stir it into the pot. Add the corn, and the chicken. Simmer for 2-3 minutes to cook the zucchini and corn.
Serve in large bowls with a biscuit floating on top of each.
