Curry Chicken à la King and Biscuits

It's so hard coming up with new ideas for dinner. Tonight though, I decided to take a classic and put a spicy spin on it.  I have to admit...I wasn't too sure how it was going to turn out though. was really good!!! You could easily leave the curry and cilantro out and just use this recipe as a traditional Chicken à la King recipe....but this version adds a little spice to your life!!!  So give it a whirl.

While I can take credit for the idea of this spicy spin on comfort food....I cannot take credit for the star of the show.  Drumroll please.........The Easy 7up Biscuits  My oh my!!! Thank the good Lord above and thank you Pinterest for sending these babies into my life.  I did lighten them up a bit from their original (which you can find here) by using Heart Smart Bisquick, Light Sour Cream and Sprite Zero (my version 4 WWP+) and still so so soooooo delicious!!!  Drizzle some warm honey over the warm biscuit and you may just hear angels sing. MUST make these.  Like now!!!  Really....get up....go into your kitchen and make these.  You're welcome in need to track me down to thank me, hug me, kiss me...depending on how much you end up liking them!

So here was my comforting curry meal tonight.

Serves: 4 - 1 cup servings
Each Serving is 6 WWP+


8 oz. raw chicken breast, cut into cubes
2 Tbl. butter
1 Tbl olive oil
1 small onion, diced

1 Tbl. curry powder
handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
salt and pepper to taste


In a large skillet over med-high heat melt butter and olive oil.  Add chicken, onion, carrot, celery and mushrooms and season with a little salt and pepper.  Cook until chicken is cooked through and veggies are tender.  Combine the dry SOS Mix, with the water and other dry seasonings then pour onto the chicken and veggies mixture.  While continuing to stir, bring the mixture up to a boil and cook for approximately 5 minutes or until sauce has thickened.  Stir in the chopped cilantro and serve over warm biscuits or cooked rice.
