Chicken And Biscuits...Or Waffles

Some recipes evoke fond memories. This is one. Every Wednesday growing up, my family would go to a small little family restaurant called Charley's, where Charley himself worked the bar, his wife Pearl cooked the most amazing Chicken and Biscuits, and their daughter Barb served us with a smile. I am not going to pretend I can replicate that amazing meal, but thanks to my sister-in-law Sally, I can come darn close. Please try this one. I promise you will love it.  And a side note...I prefer it with waffles. : )


Chicken And Biscuits

  1. Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  2. 2 large cans chicken broth, 32 oz. each

  6. 2 cans Grands Biscuits, baked according to directions
DIRECTIONS

  3. I can honestly say I have never had chicken and waffles or biscuits. I don't even think I've ever had biscuits and gravy. But this looks easy enough to try so maybe we will. (But definitely with waffles I think.)

  4. Sounds delicious on a wet, rainy day like we are experiencing!! I have had it on biscuits but never waffles. You learn something every day.

    I love your story about going to, Charley's as girl! We didn't go out very much as a kid, but I do have some fun memories about A&W. We had one by our home, and we would get to go there sometimes for a root beer and a hamburger.

    My grandson loves chicken and waffles, I will have to make this for him, it looks fabulous!! I love chicken anything, and biscuits. . . nuf said!

    Hugs,
    Barb
