My husband is still raving about this meal and we ate a few hours ago! I thought that he was giving me a hard time when I told him what we were having for supper - "I love chicken, pasta and spinach..." Sarcasm runs high at our house so I really believed that he wasn't too excited for supper - turns out I was dead wrong. He quickly packed away 2 of these bad boys for lunch tomorrow and ate 2 more at supper. He wasn't the only one that ate them like they were heaven either... My 1 year old - who boycotts ANY type of food most of the time, inhaled them also! Must be a keeper...
FYI: I don't have a jumbo muffin tin so I just used my regular one... This meant that I had a lot more filling then fit in 8 biscuits so I needed to open another can. So, if you don't have a jumbo pan either - make sure you pick up 2 cans biscuits because you will use about 11 of them...
