How to Make Chicken Pot Pie
Making chicken pot pie is simple, and this recipe is extra easy: it uses frozen vegetables and pre-made biscuits. You’ll save time with these items and the result is still mind-blowing!
There’s 2 primary parts to making chicken pot pie with biscuits: the creamy chicken base and the biscuits on top. For this recipe, first you’ll make the chicken mix and then you’ll top it with biscuits.
Traditionally, chicken pot pie is made in a pie. But this recipe is a twist on the traditional version — instead it’s topped with biscuits.
Why Make It with Biscuits?
Making pot pie with biscuits instead of a pie crust is not only easier, it tastes better! You get the flaky, buttery goodness of biscuits in each bite.
Instead of worrying whether or not your pie crust will turn out properly, simply place biscuits on top of your chicken pot pie.
The biscuits add the same texture and flavor contrast as a traditional pie crust would, only better. The highlight of this meal is getting a bit of buttery biscuit in every bite.
What Do You Serve with Chicken Pot Pie?
Chicken pot pie is a satisfying, creamy dish. Main courses like this go well with lighter sides: a salad or vegetables.
And part of what makes this recipe so good is that it already has meat, vegetables, and biscuits in it! You can serve it by itself and it’s a complete meal in one.
Tips for Making Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuits
- Too thick? If you find that your chicken mix ends up too thick, add some extra chicken broth.
- Baking the biscuits: don’t forget to flip your biscuits in the final step! First you’ll bake your biscuits for half the recommended time, and then you’ll flip them as you add the biscuits on top of your pot pie for the final bake.
- Cooking your chicken: you’ll need 2 cooked and shredded chicken breasts before you start this recipe. Bake your chicken at 425 degrees for 15 – 18 minutes (until the internal temperature of the meat is 165 degrees).
