Cooking Vessel Size9 x 13 inch baking dish


  • 4 to 5 medium carrots, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 celery ribs, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • Salt
  • 3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 4 1/2 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 rotisserie chicken, meat removed and cut into bite sized pieces (about 3 cups)
  • 1/2 pound rotini, cooked al dente
  • 1 can refrigerated biscuits


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place carrots in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Allow them to cook until tender. Drain and set aside.

  2. Cook pasta and drain, set aside. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add celery, onions, and a teaspoon of salt, cook until softened and lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes.

  3. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until lightly browned, about one minute. Gradually whisk in 1 cup of the chicken broth and cook until thickened. Slowly whisk in the remaining broth, half and half and thyme.

  4. Add the chicken, carrots and prepared pasta, bring mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes or until sauce is thickened. While chicken mixture is simmering, open the can of biscuits and cut each one into four pieces.

  5. Pour chicken mixture into a 9 x 13 baking dish. Place biscuits pieces all over the top of the dish. Use a spoon to carefully tuck in any pasta noodles that are sticking out. Tucking the pasta into the sauce will keep them from hardening while in the oven.

  6. Bake in preheated oven for 23 to 28 minutes, or until edges are bubbly and biscuits are golden brown.

This casserole looks really impressive. I was wondering instead of using a can of biscuits could you make your own and if so any recipe suggestions for it? I can imagine me and my partner getting stuck in to this after we both have had a though day at work mid week.

I love that this easy casserole has both pasta and a biscuit topping, as opposed to one or the other. I'm one of those gals that has to have a bunch of garlic bread alongside my spaghetti! Rotini is a great pasta choice, since it seems to hold up much better in a casserole than a smaller pasta shape like shells or macaroni.

Made this for the first time! Partner and I loved it. The thing I was concerned about was the al dente pasta simmering again for 15 more minutes! Not for me. I added the pasta the last few minutes and that worked much better. I was afraid of pasta mush. I also added a can of mushrooms because I did not have fresh ones. Then I added some pepper to give it a base.

Skip the "canned" biscuits. Whip up a batch of Bisquick dumplings instead.

I read this over 3 times and I believe you missed including the biscuits in the list of ingredients. Other than that, it sounds really tasty, and I'm looking forward to trying it.

Hello and thank you so much for pointing that out. We have corrected the list of ingredients to reflect the can of biscuits needed. Happy cooking - let us know how it goes!
