  1. 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs, halved
  2. 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  3. ½ teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
  4. 5 teaspoons vegetable oil, divided
  5. 1½ cups cut fresh green beans
  6. 1 cup chopped parsnip
  7. ½ cup chopped carrot
  8. 1 cup quartered mushrooms
  9. 1¼ cups chicken broth
  10. ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  11. ½ cup whole milk
  12. 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  13. 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  1. 1 cup self-rising flour
  2. ¼ cup cold butter, diced
  3. 4 tablespoons whole milk
  4. 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. For filling: Sprinkle chicken with ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. In a 10-inch skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook until browned, approximately 2 minutes per side. Set aside.
  3. Wipe pan. Heat remaining 3 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat. Add green beans, parsnip, carrot, and mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables begin to soften, approximately 4 minutes. Add broth. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover, and simmer until tender, approximately 10 minutes.
  4. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, remaining ¾ teaspoon salt, and remaining ¼ teaspoon pepper. Whisk in milk, parsley, and rosemary. Add to broth mixture in pan, stirring until mixture begins to thicken. Return chicken to pan. Cover, and remove from heat.
  5. For biscuits: In the work bowl of a food processor, pulse flour and butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, pulsing until mixture forms a soft dough. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times. Roll ½-inch thick; cut into 1-inch pieces. Place dough pieces on top of hot filling.
  6. Bake until biscuits are lightly browned and chicken is cooked through, approximately 15 minutes. Brush tops of biscuits with melted butter before serving.
