Smothered Biscuit Chicken

This is definite comfort food and a great way to use up leftover chicken. Before he was even done eating, Nate requested that I make this again. I'd say that's a hit.

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (or use up some leftover chicken you have on hand)
2 packets chicken gravy mix plus the water they require
1/2 small onion, diced
1 Tbsp. butter
salt and pepper
1 tube refrigerated biscuits (I used Pillsbury Grands buttermilk biscuits)

In a medium skillet melt butter over medium heat. Once hot add onions plus a little salt and pepper and sautee for 4-5 minutes or until onions are tender. While onions are cooking prepare gravy. Once onions are finished add chicken. Turn the temperature down to low and add 1 cup gravy. Stir well to combine. Let simmer for a minute or two or until the chicken is nice and hot. Roll out each biscuit into a flat circle. Spoon some of the chicken mixture onto the flattened biscuit, fold the top over and pinch edges to seal. Poke a fork into the top of each biscuit to allow steam to escape. Place filled biscuits onto a prepared baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown(or as directed on your biscuit package). Once done baking, dish up and spoon some of the remaining gravy over the tops of the biscuits. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
