Peel and thinly slice the onion. Grate the cheese.

2 Cook the chicken:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the ground chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook, frequently breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 3 to 5 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Wipe out the pan.

3 Make the biscuit batter:

While the chicken cooks, in a medium bowl, combine the biscuit mix and ½ cup of water. Fold in the cheddar cheese and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

In the same pan used to cook the chicken, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the onion, pepper, celery and all but a pinch of the spice blend; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes, or until softened and slightly browned.

Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until well combined and slightly reduced. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat.

6 Assemble & bake the casserole:

Transfer the filling to a 1-quart (or similar-sized) baking dish. Using a spoon, evenly top the filling with scoops of the biscuit batter, leaving some space in between the scoops. Sprinkle with the remaining spice blend. Place the baking dish on a sheet pan and bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until the biscuits are browned and cooked through. Remove the casserole from the oven. Let stand for at least 2 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
