  • 2-½ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup shortening
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup warm water (100°–110°F)
  • 1 (2-¼ tsp.) envelope Fleischmann's® Active Dry Yeast


  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cups cooked, diced chicken
  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon black medium grind pepper
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 3 tablespoons Argo® Corn Starch



  1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Cut in shortening using a pastry blender OR two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add yeast to warm water. Stir to dissolve. Add yeast mixture and buttermilk to dry ingredients; stir until combined.
  2. Place dough on a lightly floured surface. Knead 10 to 15 times; form into a ball. Pat dough to 3/4-inch thickness. Cut 10 to 12 biscuits using a 2-inch biscuit cutter (or use a straight sided drinking glass); place on ungreased baking sheet. Cover; let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes. Make filling while dough is rising.


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook about 5 minutes, until onion is soft. Stir in chicken, vegetables, broth, garlic, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Combine milk and corn starch in a measuring cup or small bowl. Stir into chicken mixture. Stirring constantly, bring mixture to a boil and boil 1 minute.
  3. Spoon chicken mixture into a 2 or 3-quart casserole. Top with the risen biscuits. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and drizzle over biscuits. Place casserole on baking sheet (to catch any boil-overs in the oven).
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until filling is bubbly and biscuits are lightly browned.
