What You’ll Need 

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 yellow onion

2 garlic cloves

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

1 cup whole milk 

1 - 10 ounce package frozen peas and carrots

3 cups cooked, shredded chicken (make sure your chicken is cooked - grilled or rotisserie chicken works great)

¾ teaspoon kosher salt 

¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 roll premade biscuit dough (store-bought biscuit dough works great)

Preparation

Start your fire and add the Kettle and Kettle Hook to the Outpost™ grill pole. Preheat the kettle by lowering it to medium-high heat. 

Peel and rough chop the onion and garlic cloves. 

Add the olive oil to the kettle followed by the chopped yellow onion. Season the onion with salt and pepper to taste and add more oil if necessary. 

After the onions have rendered down and begun to caramelize, add the chopped garlic to the kettle and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.

Add the flour slowly to the kettle and stir until it’s completely dissolved. 

Once the flour has dissolved, stir in the chicken stock and milk. 

Bring the soup mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until thickened.

Add the peas, carrots, and chicken to the kettle and stir. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste.

Flatten the preformed biscuits with the palm of your hand and place them evenly and directly on top of the soup over medium-high heat.

Form an oven by placing hot coals on top of the kettle lid and let it cook for about 15 minutes. 

Live-Fire Cooking Pro Tip: Make sure to evenly place your coals on top of the kettle lid, this will prevent one side cooking faster than the other. 

After your biscuits are cooked to your liking, remove the kettle from the fire pit, let it cool for about 5 minutes, and dig in!
