Chicken & biscuit ranch casserole
Servings: 6-8
Prep time: 25 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour, 30 minutes
Total time: 1 hour, 55 minutes
Ingredients
2½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, thinly sliced
1 can ready-made biscuits, shaped into 2-inch balls
1 16-ounce bottle ranch dressing
1½ cups mozzarella
1 tablespoon butter
2 teaspoons salt
Pepper to taste
Directions
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. In a bowl, season chicken with salt and pepper, then add ranch dressing and 1 cup of the mozzarella. Mix well.
3. With your fingers, smear butter onto the bottom and sides of a baking dish. Add chicken mixture.
4. Place rolled biscuits on top of chicken, pressing them into the pan. Leave space in between each biscuit because they'll grow in the oven. Evenly sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella.
5. Bake 1½ hours, or until biscuits are a nice golden brown and chicken is fully cooked. (Note: We prepared this dish in a toaster oven. If you are using a conventional oven, 45 minutes should suffice.)
6. Carefully remove from oven and serve.
