Easy Chicken and Biscuits

This is one of our all time favorites around here, and it is so simple to throw to together-yay!  Hope you like it!

2 cans (10 3/4 oz) Cream of Chicken Soup
1 cup of milk
1 Tbsp garlic powder (although we use a little more because we are garlic lovers!)
2-3 cups cubed cooked chicken
Can(s) of your choice of vegetable (or a combination): corn, green beans, peas, carrots
1 can of refrigerated biscuits-each cut into small pieces

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. 
2. Stir the soup, milk, and garlic powder together in a 9x13 baking dish. 
3. Mix in chicken and vegetables. 
4. Bake for 15 minutes or until the soup mixture is bubbling at the sides of the dish. 
5. Pull out and arrange the biscuit pieces on top and place back in oven.
6. Back for another 10 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown on top. 

*Note: If you have picky eaters, you can leave the vegetables out and serve them on the side.

Crock Pot Taco Soup

1 can of tomato sauce
1 can kidney beans-drained and rinsed
1 can of corn-drained
1lb ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
Tortilla chips (optional)
Sour Cream (optional)
Shredded Cheese (optional)

Cook the ground beef according to the directions for making tacos on your package of taco seasoning.  Add tomato sauce, kidney beans, corn, and cooked ground beef with taco seasoning into a large crock pot.  Let it cook on low for 3-6 hours.  Serve with tortilla chips, sour cream, and cheese and allow everyone to customize their own bowl!  

I love to use the chips to scoop up the soup, but some of my family prefer to crumble them on top and use a spoon-each person can make it their own way!  Perfect for a cool Fall evening!

*Note: this is easily doubled to feed more people.  I double this and cook it in my 6qt. crock pot with no problem.

*Tip: If you are in a hurry to get this put together before you head out to work in the morning, cook the beef and taco seasoning up the night before and keep it in the fridge overnight.  Then just toss it all in the crock pot in the morning!
