Wheat-Free Chicken and Biscuits

I have not perfected the portions (as far as gravy to biscuits) yet, so you may have to tweak them a little.

What you'll need:


9 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons potato starch (or other thickener)
3 cups milk
3 cups chicken broth
6 teaspoons of garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

8 cutlet chicken breasts (3 or 4 regular breasts) or whatever part of the chicken you'd like to use

3 cups flour (garbanzo bean flour makes a really good biscuit)
3/4 teaspoon salt
6 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon cream of tarter
3/4 cup lard (butter probably would work)
1 cup milk

Cook chicken. I prefer to just cook it in some lard in the pan I make the gravy in, but you could bake it, too. Set aside.

Make biscuits. Preheat oven to 425F. Mix dry ingredients together and then cut in lard. Add milk and mix. Form biscuits, put on baking sheet and bake for 12-20 minutes.

Cut up chicken into bite sized pieces.

Melt butter over medium heat (be careful not to burn the butter). Stir in potato starch/thickener. Whisk in milk and broth. Whisk frequently until thickened and hot. Add chicken.

Place biscuit on plate and ladle chicken and gravy over it! Add a vegetable (we like green beans!) and ENJOY! :)
