I made my own cream of chicken soup to watch the sodium and used shallots instead of leeks. Other than that I made it like the recipe. So so good!

Pure comfort from the oven to the table. My son and I really like it and will have it again, most likely very soon before it gets hot!

The photo got my attention and I knew I had to try this one on for size. It was delicious and my husband made a pig of himself! I guess he just can't help it when it comes to good food. I have to say we will enjoy this many more times we liked it so well!

Derf "RIP" Forever in our Kitchen

First, this is soo sinfully delicious! Rich and to die for even if i did use no fat sour cream, other than that and using butter for the biscuits I made it as written. Really a special dish, to make once in while; it would also be a wonderful company dish. You may want to add to the "how to make" section of the recipe. As i was putting the casserole together i realised i still had mushrooms and salt and pepper, i was following the directions and now noticed these 3 items were listed in the ingredients but not in the directions; in any case i just added and mixed them into the casserole just before i put it in the oven and all worked out fine and delicious. and the biscuits were a perfect finish.  I only made half the recipe and there is still enough for another meal !!   Thanks for sharing this special recipe!!

I loved the flavor of the herbs in with the creamed chicken and the biscuits went together easily and tasted great. This is a real comfort food that is great to have with the change of the seasons. This is a do again favorite for us! Updated 9-5-13 - I made this again and this time I didn't use the leeks and I added in peas and carrots. Mighty fine recipe!
