Chicken ‘n’ A Biscuit

Servings: 4 (2 each)

A group of kids will love digging into these broiled cheese open-faced sandwiches. You can also make this recipe for 1 or 2 and not heat the house with the oven. Just cook in a skillet coated with Teflon™ non-stick until cheese is melted.



1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons heavy cream 
8 slices whole-wheat bread toasted; crusts removed
2/3 cup shredded American Cheese, plus more for topping
1 pound (1/3-inch thick slices) deli chicken
8 strips cooked bacon, optional

Chicken n A Biscuit recipe 


In a medium saucepan coated with Teflon™ non-stick, melt the butter over medium heat and add the flour, stirring with a wooden spoon until the flour is absorbed. Slowly, pour in the milk and stir to incorporate. Stir in the cheese and the egg (to thicken). Add the cream; set aside.

Preheat the broiler. Place the toasted bread slices onto a large baking sheet, coated with Teflon™ non-stick. Evenly divide the chicken among the bread slices. Pour the cheese sauce over the chicken and top with a sprinkling of more cheese. Place under the broiler about 6 minutes or until the sauce is thickened and bubbly. If desired, add a slice of bacon, and then serve.
