With this recipe you can Use my Country Gravy Recipe or you can use the "Biscuit Gravy" packets by McCormick. :-)

2 containers of Refrigerator Flaky Biscuits (I use Pillsbury)
2- Boneless Chicken Breasts, Boiled and chopped. (Or you can use 2 cans of Swanson Chicken Breast)
1- 10 to 16 oz bag of Frozen Mixed veggies w/ Peas, Carrots and corn.
3- Stalks Chopped Celery
4c Country Gravy

Bake Biscuits according to package Directions while Gravy is cooking..
Make Gravy according to directions on packet  (or Use my Recipe below)
Add Chicken and stir to mix in.
Add 3/4 of bag of frozen Veggies
Add Celery
Cook on low until the veggies are cooked and no longer frozen. Once Biscuits are done, Split 2 biscuits in half and lay on the plate face up and top w/ the Creamy Chicken & Veggies. YUM!!

*Country Gravy*
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 cups milk

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Whisk in the flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Cook and stir over medium heat until browned, about 10 minutes. Gradually stir in milk so that no lumps form, and continue cooking and stirring until thickened. If the gravy becomes too thick, you may thin it with a little more milk.

Crustless Cream Chesse Pumpkin Pie

2 cups of fresh pumpkin puree
4 large eggs (at room temperature)

1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon of ground cloves
2 teaspoons of vanilla
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
4 tablespoons of honey

Grease a 9 inch glass pie plate generously with butter or oil.

Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared pie plate and bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for roughly 45 minutes or until the cheesecake is set and a cake tester inserted into the middle comes out clean.

The pie can be served with Whipped Cream .

Frito Pie

1- 14 1/2 oz bag of Fritos corn chips
9oz  finely shredded colby jack cheese  or Cheddar Cheese
