Spatchcocking a Chicken

Tonight I decided to spatchcock a chicken.  Not the best job, but it's done.  Added some butter under the skin, coated with olive oil, and seasoned with Slap Ya Mama.  I want to smoke it, but time is not on my side.  Off to the oven.

Chicken a la King...

As I kid I loved Chicken a la king and it was one of my favorite MRE's (Meals Ready to Eat), when I was in the Army.  Always a great comfort food, but never tried to make the dish.  Here is my spin.  


  • 1 Can of Grand's Buttermilk Bicuits
  • 1/2 Cup of Onion, Celery, and Pepper Mix
  • 1/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Cajuns Seasoning, to taste
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Cup of Frozen Peas and Carrots Mix
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • Bake biscuits according to package directions.
  • In a large skillet, saute the onion, celery, and pepper mix in butter until crisp-tender.
  • Stir in flour and Cajun Seasoning until blended.
  • Gradually stir in broth and milk.
  • Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened.
  • Add frozen peas and carrots.
  • Add chicken and stir until warm.
  • Serve over biscuits.
