Complete this comfort meal with homemade cinnamon applesauce. Just stir ground cinnamon into applesauce to taste, and serve warm if desired.
For Parmesan-garlic biscuits, stir 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder into the dough before dropping it onto chicken mixture.
Replace parsley with fresh basil or oregano for a touch of Italy.
