My local Sam’s Club has the best rotisserie chicken at a lower price that is cheaper then I can make. I like to buy one every month because they are large and plump and makes a wonderful chicken dinner. I live in South Florida so it gets too hot to roast a chicken in the summer. It is now in the high eighties almost every day. There is a lot of left overs for two people. I made chicken soup this week from the bones. Which I now have two individual containers of soup in the freezer for later. We ate chicken sandwiches and still had enough left to make a casserole. To use up the chicken that was left and I made a bubble up casserole This is a casserole that is topped with biscuits that are spaced apart so the sauce in the casserole will bubble up around them. There are many recipes for bubble up casseroles on line.
I will share how I made this left over casserole.

In a small sauce pan add 2 cups of water, carrots, celery, and onion. Boil for 5 minutes. Add chicken and continue to cook for 5 more minutes. Add gravy mix and stir in. I should slightly thicken. Remove from heat and add peas and parsley.
In a small bowl sift flour, baking powder and salt. Add milk and mayonnaise. Stir until moistened. Stir in cheese and chives.
In a small a baking dish (5 inch by 8 inches) or any size that will hold 1 quart. Pour in chicken mixture. Add a little water if needed to cover the mixture. Top with biscuit dough by dropping from a spoon and spacing them apart so the liquid can bubble up.
