One of my favorite meals involves butter, cream, garlic, chicken, and biscuits. This is a man-friendly, woman-friendly, kid-friendly, 14-month-old-baby-with-teeth-friendly meal. No one ever complains when I serve this.
Plenty of melted butter to make a roux:
. . . with biscuits, obviously. I typically use biscuits from a can, but you can make your own from scratch if you feel so inclined. I think this biscuit recipe from Tracey’s Culinary Adventures looks absolutely mouthwatering.
