Chicken, Broccoli and Biscuits

A reminder of a cold weather birthday, with a hot meal.
On birthdays, my mom would let us request what meal we wanted for dinner. The meal I almost always picked was Chicken, Broccoli and Biscuits. It was my favorite meal. Having a birthday when the weather was cold was also great for this meal, since it is so warm and comforting plus cooking in the oven heats up the whole house. This year I will be having turkey on my birthday, so I had to have my old stand by before it arrives.

Chicken, Broccoli, and Biscuits
1 pound chicken legs and/or thighs
1/2 cup flour
1 pound broccoli florets
1 package refrigerated biscuits
1 can cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup
1 can of milk
View full recipePreheat oven at 350 degrees F.
Slightly cover chicken (skin or no skin, your preference) with flour. Put into a 9“ by 13” pan and bake until chicken is just about finished, juices are almost clear.
While chicken is baking, stream broccoli to just tender.
In a medium bowl, whisk together cream of soup and milk. Move chicken to one side of pan, put broccoli next to it (1/3 of pan). Cover chicken, broccoli and the remaining of empty pan with the soup/milk mixture. Put the biscuits on top of the soup mixture in the remaining 1/3 of pan.
Bake until biscuits are golden brown on top, around 15 minutes or according to package direction.
