Prep time: 25 minutes


Prepare one Bella Gluten-Free Tender Flaky Biscuit Mix and add 2 TBL chopped sundried tomatoes or 1 TBL fresh herbs to dough. 


Preheat oven to 375 degrees and set out a 9 x 13” baking dish.

• Heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add onions and cook for about 3 minutes.

Add remaining vegetables: carrots, celery, and sweet potato and sauté until vegetables take on color, about 5 minutes.

• Add broth, chicken, thyme, parsley, and salt and pepper.  Simmer for 20 minutes uncovered, reducing liquid. Adjust flavors with salt and pepper if desired.

• Mix together ¼ cup water and potato starch. Mixture should be thick but able to be stirred. Add half of the Bella Gluten-Free All Purpose Baking Mix or potato starch mixture to chicken stew and simmer until stew becomes slightly thicker, about 3 minutes. Add more to achieve desired thickness. Stew will continue to thicken when baked in the oven.

•Transfer stew to a 9x13” baking dish. Space biscuit dough evenly over top of stew. Bake until biscuits are a light golden brown about 20-25 minutes.
