  • 1 tube buttermilk biscuits - or you could make homemade
  • 3 cups boneless skinless chicken breast - cooked and shredded
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 5 cloves garlic - minced
  • 4 carrots - quartered lengthwise and chopped
  • salt - to taste
  • 4 stalks celery - halved lengthwise and chopped
  • ½ teaspoon fresh black pepper - plus more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 pouch concentrated low sodium chicken flavor
  • 4 heaping tbsp flour
  • 5.5 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1.5 cups frozen peas
  • 1 cup milk - I used 2%
  • ¼ cup half and half - more or less if desired
  • fresh parsley - chopped for topping


For the Biscuit Crumble

  • Preheat oven according to package instructions and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Pop open tube of biscuits and break apart each biscuit into small balls- each approximately the size of a ping-pong ball.
  • Bake the crumbles for approximately 10 minutes, or until lightly golden and fully cooked (cooking times will vary).
  • Remove from the oven and set aside.
  • If you have a favorite home-made biscuit recipe, feel free to use that! I was feeling lazy.

For the Soup

  • In a large pot or Dutch oven melt butter over medium high heat.
  • Add the onion to the pot and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic, carrots, celery, parsley, salt and pepper to the pot and stir to mix. Continue to cook the vegetables for 4-5 minutes, or just until the vegetables start to soften.
  • Add the concentrated low sodium chicken flavor to the vegetables and stir to mix.
  • Slowly sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir everything together until completely combined. Allow vegetables to cook for 1-2 minutes before slowly pouring in the chicken broth, stirring the entire time to prevent the flour from clumping.
  • Reduce heat to medium and bring the soup to a simmer. Partially cover the pot with the lid and simmer for approximately 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove the lid and stir in the shredded chicken, frozen peas, milk and half and half.
  • Return soup to a simmer (do NOT boil, as this will curdle the broth).
  • Once heated through, serve soup and top each bowl with biscuit crumbles and fresh chopped parsley.
