Chicken Chowder and Drop Biscuits

A chowder that is easy to make – you mostly ignore it and biscuits that mix up/bake while the soup finishes. Perfect for a really rainy winter evening 🙂 It was a nice dinner that warmed up inside.

Baking powder Drop Biscuits


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup cold butter, diced up
  • 1 cup milk


Preheat the oven to 450° and spray a 12 count muffin tin with cooking spray.

Stir the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Add in the butter and work into small crumbs with your fingers.

Stir in the milk till juts moistened.

Divide the dough evenly between the prepared cups (a 3-Tablespoon Disher works well), bake for 12 minutes or until golden on top. Pop out onto a cooling rack and serve right away.

Makes 12 biscuits.
