chicken n biscuits

this is like an easy "chicken pot pie" recipe. and probably a lot healthier!


1 (16 ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables
2 1/2 cups cubed cooked chicken
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional- i didn't use bacon and it was still good)
1 1/2 cups biscuit/baking mix (i used one of those biscuit bags where you "just add water"-like the muffin ones... much easier)
2/3 cup milk (if you use the mix)
1 (2.8 oz.) can french-fried onions (key ingredient for flavor!)


in a large bowl, combine the vegetables, chicken, soup, milk, 1 cup cheese and bacon if desired. pour into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. cover and bake at 400 for 15 minutes.
meanwhile, in another bowl, combine biscuit mix and milk. drop batter by tablespoonfuls onto chicken mixture. bake, uncovered, for 20-22 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown. top with onions and remaining cheese. bake 3-4 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted.
