Easy homemade chicken pot pie is such an easy chicken breast recipe to make that it has become a favorite family dinner to make in our house. You can make this meal up in no time and get all of the comfort food you need! It’s a modern take on the classic chicken pot pie, and you can use any biscuit dough you would like (that’s the best part)!
Chicken pot pie with biscuits is the perfect answer to a quick dinner for those busy weeknights, without compromising flavor. Plus it makes absolutely wonderful leftovers too! This is one of the best chicken pot pie recipes. The yummy chicken mixture with the tender biscuits makes this one of our most popular recipes!
This is a budget-friendly recipe to make when you are trying to stay within your budget or at the end of the month! We all know how that goes, so skip the box mac and cheese and make this hearty chicken pot pie.
If you want to add more sides to this meal, try pairing it with our Easy Homemade French Bread (perfect for dipping in the creamy pot pie sauce), Instant Pot Sweet Potato Casserole, or a wonderful Citrus Fruit Salad.
You can store this in an airtight container in the fridge, but the flaky biscuits might lose a bit of their texture. And if you want to get fancy, you can make homemade biscuits instead of store-bought biscuits. Fresh veggies are also great for this recipe, but frozen veggies work too. This is one of our family’s favorite comfort foods that’s a hit any night of the week! This recipe is great the next day, so be sure to save the leftovers. If you have more chicken pot pie filling than you need, you can freeze it as well! This easy chicken pot pie recipe will be in your monthly dinner rotation from now on.
Ingredients Needed For Our Easy Biscuit Chicken Pot Pie Recipe:
- Vegetable oil
- Chopped onion
- Diced carrots
- Chopped broccoli
- Chopped cauliflower
- Frozen peas
- Chicken broth
- Cream of chicken soup
- Dried thyme
- Boneless, skinless, chicken breasts (cooked and shredded)
- Pillsbury Grand biscuits
How To Make Our Easy Biscuit Chicken Pot Pie Recipe:
Begin by preheating the oven to 400 degrees.
Then in a large pan, heat the vegetable oil on medium-high heat.
After the oil is hot, throw in the onions, broccoli, cauliflower, and thawed peas to saute them until they become tender. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
Then season the vegetables with salt and pepper to your liking.
When you are done sauting the vegetables, put them in a large bowl with the shredded chicken and set it aside.
Using the same pan, reduce the heat and add the butter to the pot.
Once the butter has melted, stir in the flour and cook it while stirring it constantly to make the roux.
Then carefully whisk in the milk, chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, and the dried thyme.
When that has all been added, allow the sauce to come to a simmer and let it simmer for about 1 minute to let the sauce thicken up and then add salt and pepper to your liking.
Once the sauce is thick, turn off the heat and put the vegetables and chicken in the pot with the sauce.
Stir everything together until the filling is well combined. If the filling is too thick, stir in a little extra chicken broth or milk until you get the right consistency.
Then pour the filling into a 9×13 inch baking dish and bake it for 18 minutes.
After 18 minutes, remove the dish from the oven and top it off with the 8 biscuits and put it back in the oven for another 10-12 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
Allow the pot pie to cool and set up for about 5 minutes and then serve it warm!
