Place the chicken breasts on a sheet pan and rub them with olive oil. Sprinkle generously with salt & pepper. Set aside until cool enough to handle, then remove the meat from the bones and discard the skin. Cut the chicken into large dice. You will have 4 to 6 cups of cubed chicken.

Add the flour and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Add the hot chicken stock to the sauce. Simmer over low heat for 1 more minute, stirring until thick. Add 2 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and the heavy cream. Add the cubed chicken, carrots, peas, onions, and parsley. Mix well, Place the stew in a 10 x 13 x 2 inch oval or rectangular baking dish. Place the baking dish on sheet pan lined with parchment or wax paper. Bake for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the biscuits. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar i the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. add the butter and mix on low speed until the butter is the size of peas. Add the half and half and combine on low speed. Mix in the parsley.
