"When I'm at a Chinese restaurant having a hard time with chopsticks, I always hope that there's a Chinese kid at an American restaurant somewhere who's struggling mightily with a fork."--Rick Budinich

Ashley Stika


¼ cup (half a stick) of butter
⅓ cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder

3-4 cooked and chopped/shredded chicken breasts (depending on how many servings you need)
2 – 32oz containers chicken broth
Salt and pepper to taste
1 can of Pillsbury grand biscuits

In a large pot, melt the butter. Mix together the dry roux ingredients and slowly sprinkle into the melted butter, fully incorporating before adding more. Once all of the dry mix has been added pour in the chicken broth. Stir continually over medium heat until roux dissolves. Once dissolved, bring stock to a boil. Boil for 5-10 minutes and add the chicken, salt, and pepper. Bring back up to a boil, and allow the broth to thicken to your preferred consistency.

Open the can of biscuits and cut each biscuit into four equal pieces. Turn the heat down to medium and add the biscuits until the top is covered. Cook uncovered for 10 minutes. Cover the pot and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until biscuits have cooked through and aren’t doughy.
