"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

8 small carrots, thinly sliced
1/2 onion, chopped (1/2 c.)
1/3 c. butter
1/3 c. flour
1 1/2 c. chicken broth
1 1/2 c. milk
6 small or 4 large chicken breasts, cooked and diced
1 c. frozen peas
1 tsp. salt

Biscuit Topping:
2 c. flour
4 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
2/3 c. milk
1/2 c. cold butter

Saute carrots and onions in butter until tender. Sprinkle with flour. Gradually add broth and milk. Boil; cook and stir 2 minutes. Add chicken, peas, and salt. Heat through. Pour in a 2 1/2 qt. dish (or 8x8 for 1/2 of the recipe). For biscuits, combine dry ingredients. Cut in butter. Stir in milk. Knead 8-10 times. Roll out scant 1/2 thick. Cut with a 2 1/2 round cutter. Makes about 10 biscuits. Place gently on top of chicken mixture. Bake at 400 F for 20 minutes, or until biscuits are golden brown.
