Pale Ale Skillet Chicken & Biscuits


1/3 cup butter
1 cup onions, diced
2 medium carrots, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
12 oz Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 rotisserie chicken, shredded
1 cup frozen peas
1 can refrigerated biscuits
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded


Step 1

Heat oven to 375°F. Melt butter in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions, carrots, and celery. Season with a pinch of salt, and cook for 5–7 minutes.

Step 2

Stir in flour and cayenne pepper, and cook for 1–3 minutes. Stir in beer*, milk and 1 teaspoon of salt, and cook for 1–3 minutes until thick and bubbly. Add 1/2–1 cup of water if too thick. Remove from heat and fold in chicken and peas.

Step 3

Separate dough into 8 biscuits, and arrange on top of chicken mixture. Top with shredded cheese.

Step 4

Bake for 20–25 minutes, until biscuits are cooked through and golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

*You can substitute water for beer.
