- 3 celery ribs, sliced 1/4-inch thick
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- Fine sea salt
- 1/4 cup dry white wine or sherry (optional)
- 3 cups water
- 2 teaspoons MAGGI Instant Chicken Flavor Bouillon
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1 can (12 fluid ounces) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Lowfat 2% Milk
- One 3 1/2- to 4-pound rotisserie chicken, skin removed and meat shredded (about 4 cups)
- 1 cup frozen green peas
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup reduced-fat buttermilk
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
PREHEAT oven to 425° F.
COMBINE carrots, celery, onion, garlic, thyme, oil and ½ teaspoon salt in a large Dutch oven or saucepan. Cover; cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, for 6 to 8 minutes or until vegetables have softened.
STIR in wine; cook for 1 minute or until almost evaporated. Stir in water and bouillon; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low.
WHISK cornstarch and evaporated milk together; stir into sauce. Cook for about 1 minute or until sauce thickens slightly. Remove from heat; stir in chicken, peas and parsley. Season with salt and ground black pepper to taste.
DIVIDE mixture between eight 8-ounce ramekins or spoon into 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
WHISK flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda and salt together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk buttermilk and melted butter together. Gently stir buttermilk mixture into flour mixture with a rubber spatula until just combined and no pockets of flour remain.
DROP dough into equal mounds over ramekins, spreading out slightly. Place ramekins on baking sheet. If using 13 x 9-inch baking dish, drop dough into 8 mounds a few inches apart over hot filling.
BAKE for 20 to 25 minutes or until the biscuits are golden and the filling is bubbly. Cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
