- Remove the chicken and with the help of a fork shred it nicely. Set it aside and keep the broth for later.
- Melt the butter in a skillet and add the onions, celery, carrots and sauté it for 4 minutes on a medium flame.
- Now add garlic, rosemary, ground sage, thyme, and onion powder. Cook it well for 1 minute.
- Add the flour now and let it cook till you see that the mixture is dried up. Add the chicken broth to 2 cups slowly by mixing it. Add the half and half slowly as well so the thickness of the gravy is not disturbed.
- Now we will add the chicken bouillon with soya sauce. After a minute add the shredded chicken and mix it well.
- Slowly, the gravy will start to become thick but cook on a low flame now. As we want to make it thicker.
- You can also add more chicken broth if you like as the biscuits can absorb it while you are baking. Add the frozen peas now and remove them from the heat in 5 minutes.
- Transfer the gravy to a greased pan, but you can also add the skillet if it is oven safe. Add the biscuits on top of the gravy. At 450 degrees, cook it for 5 minutes or till the biscuits are brown.
- Take it out and serve it hot and fresh to your family and friends.
