Tips and Techniques

  • To save time you can use rotisserie or leftover chicken. You can also use refrigerated or frozen biscuits.
  • If you don't have half-and-half, you can use whole milk or heavy cream. A 50/50 combination of whole milk and heavy cream can also be used.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Consume within 3-4 days. When reheating, ensure that the temperature reaches 165°F.
