Chicken Mug Pie

1 tube Jumbo butter biscuits
1 1/2 lbs chicken breast tenders, diced
3 tbsp butter
2 ribs celery and greens, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and diced
salt & pepper
2 tsp poultry seasoning
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 cup shredded, frozen hashbrown potatoes
1 pint half-and-half or cream
1 quart chicken stock
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 cup frozen peas


Preheat oven and Bake biscuits according to their package directions.

In a soup pot over medium-high heat, cook the chicken in butter for 2 minutes, then add the vegetables. Season with salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. Cook for 5 minutes and then add the flour. Cook for about a minute and then whisk in half-and-half as well as the chicken stock. Add potatoes and nutmeg. Bring soup to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add peas. Cook for a minute or two, until the peas are warm throughout.

Ladle into bowls and top with a butter biscuit!
