Ingredients
  

Skillet Gravy

  • 1/4 cup Maine Grains Sifted Organic Flour
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 tsp of each: sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme & marjoram
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste

Filling

  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 celery ribs, diced
  • 2 cups vegetables: diced carrots, peas, corn, pepper
  • 3 cups W.A. Bean's Smoked Chicken, pulled into bites

Cornmeal Cream Biscuits

  • 1 1/2 cup Maine Grains Sifted Organic Flour
  • 1/2 cup Maine Grains Organic Cornmeal
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • To prepare gravy, melt butter in a 10″ skillet over medium-low heat, and stir in the flour. Cook a moment or two before adding about half your liquid. Stir to combine.
  • Add remaining milk or broth. Cook until the sauce is thick and bubbling. You may need a little more liquid, but keep in mind your vegetables will add moisture.
  • Season to taste with salt and black pepper, and mix in the chicken or turkey meat.
  • To make biscuits, add flour, cornmeal sea salt and baking powder to a bowl. Stir to combine. Add heavy cream and stir until a stiff but scoopable dough is formed.
  • To assemble, transfer the chicken, vegetables, and sauce into a 2-quart baking dish. Using a cookie scoop or spoons, dollop out portions and drop the biscuits on top of the filling. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the biscuits are golden brown and the pie filling is bubbling, 30 to 45 minutes. Rest 10-15 minutes before serving.
