Easy Biscuit Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie is the ultimate comfort food. But when you have a crust and all of the filling, it can be a lot of work. We've come to the rescue with this Easy Biscuit Chicken Pot Pie. Super easy recipe and the biscuits give it a better taste than you get with a pie shell. Your family will love this dinner.

Easy biscuit chicken pot pie is all the yummy goodness of a classic chicken pot pie. But we’ve kicked the flavor up a notch, and at the same time we simplified the recipe.

This recipe is perfect for the beginner cook, or for someone that has been cooking for years. It’s comes together so fast and we love that the ingredients are common ingredients you might have on hand.

We love that this chicken pot pie is loaded with veggies and chicken. Then you top it off with biscuits, it’s a whole meal in itself.

can you substitute other meat?

We love this Easy Biscuit Chicken Pot Pie with chicken added.  We cook our chicken ahead of time.  If you have leftover turkey, you can easily add it to the recipe.

If you are really looking for a short cut, you could cut up a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Canned chicken is also an option.

store bought or homemade biscuits?

We have always made Easy Biscuit Chicken Pot Pie with store bought biscuits. We like to use Pillsbury biscuits. They are easier to form into the muffin pan.

Store brand biscuits will also work well. They are very inexpensive, and still do the job.

Homemade biscuits are another option for this recipe. Just add them to the top of the recipe after you have cut them out into circles. Watch them closely as the cooking time could vary. Just be sure the pot pie is heated through.

how to make Easy biscuit chicken pot pie

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
  • In a large pan heat your oil on medium-high heat.
  • Once the oil is hot, saute the onions, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and peas until tender, about 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Transfer cooked vegetables to a bowl with the chicken; set aside.

  • Reduce the heat to medium and add the butter to the same pot. When melted, stir in the flour and cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Whisk in the milk, chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and thyme. Allow the sauce to simmer for 1 minute to thicken. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Turn off the heat and transfer the vegetables and chicken to the pot, stirring until the filling is well-combined. If the filling is too thick, stir in some extra chicken broth milk.

  • Pour the filling into a 13 x 9 inch baking dish and bake for 18 minutes.

  • Remove the dish from the oven (keeping the oven on and door closed) and top the filling with 8 biscuits.

  • Return the baking dish to the oven and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes, until the biscuits are golden brown and the filling is bubbly. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.

  1. This recipe was amazing! My 3 and 5 year old have been complaining about "not liking" everything I've made for the last five days. Although I thought the recipe looked great, I was expecting another meal of complaining. To my most unexpected surprise, they LOVED this and devoured it (as did my husband....a huge meat and potato kind of guy.) Definitely something I will be making again!
  2. I put everything in the crock pot in the morning except for the biscuits. After cooking the biscuits in the oven, I tear them in half and put them side by side in a shallow/wide bowl and a big scoop of the veggies over the top. YUM! my kiddo likes a little cheese grated on top, too.
  3. Hi! This sounds so delicious! I am making freezer meals for my sister in law who is due to give birth to her second child any day now. I was wondering, do you bake this for the same time/temp if freezing first? Do you think she'd need to bake it for longer and or thaw it prior to baking? Thanks!
    • Here is a recipe to make your own biscuits - 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 tablespoons sugar 4 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup shortening cup milk 1 egg ( large ) For the biscuits, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt in a large bowl. Cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, whisk milk and egg. Stir into crumb mixture just until moistened

    I had to modify your recipe, making homemade biscuits and homemade cream of chicken ... I have two kids with Celiac disease. But, the idea I totally loved, and all my kids loved it. (to make gluten free cream of chicken... 1/3 cup butter used to cook 1/4 of an onion diced, until translucent, add 1/3 cup g.f. flour. Stir for one minute. Add 1/2 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of chicken broth. Stir until creamy. Remove from heat. Add the cooked chicken and vegetables. )
  5. This is in the oven and it smells sooooo good! I made it with all ingredients on hand, so I subbed a bag of frozen broccoli, cauliflower, carrots for veggies in recipe. That was the only "change" if you can really call it that. So excited!!!! I will advise back after dinner!!!
  6. I literally just made this, and followed the instructions pretty much to the T. It was delicious!!! I had seconds lol. I did leave my biscuits on for about 18 min with a dash of butter on top and they came out perfect, cooked all the way through. Thank you so much for sharing.

    DELICIOUS !!! My husband and I are vegetarians. I replaced the cream of chicken with cream of celery and the chicken broth with vegetable broth -- for veggies I used frozen peas, carrots, string beans and corn, and chopped up an onion and mushrooms as well. You can use Q'orn "chikn tenders" as a substitute for the chicken. I served garlic mashed potatoes on the side. TIP:: pre-bake biscuits till the bottoms are slightly browned or else they will not bake all the way through. This dish is an absolute must try! We are considering serving it for our vegetarian thanksgiving ! Thanks for the recipe :) !
  8. This was really good! I switched out the chicken broth and used vegetable broth (maybe only used 1-1 1/2 cups), chopped the chicken rather than shredded for a better texture, added cubed cooked potato, and also pureed in some fresh yellow squash to add more veggies! Sneaky, sneaky ;) I did preface the biscuits for about 5 minutes and then put them on top of the mixture because i was nervous about them not cooking through. It was perfect! Everyone (hubby, plus 4 kids) loved it! Definitely will be making this again!
  9. This is the second time I've made this, and I sub out some veggies and do one large carrot, one large onion, 3 medium-small potatoes, and 3/4 cup of peas to keep it classic. I added in parsley and Italian seasoning and garlic powder, since my roommate loves spices. I used some homemade chicken broth I made a few months ago (and canned in mason jars - literally the best way!!!) and it just was popped in the oven. My roommate walked in and moaned in happiness and tried the sauce that goes over the meat and veggies and just about died. She keeps saying, "I can't believe this is going into my body. I'm so excited." Needless to say...this is staying on the list of things to make. Thank you! The biscuits are a great way to portion things out fairly, and I'm really excited to eat this soon! This definitely a recipe for people in their early 20's like me!
  10. Loved this recipe and will definitely be adding it to the rotation. The cooking times need to be adjusted however...not sure how you can say cooking time is 15 minutes when it cooks for 18 minutes before the biscuits are added and then another 10-12 minutes after. That's 30 minutes right there, and still does not count the 5-7 minutes to saute veggies or make the sauce. 15 minutes prep time to chop the veggies is reasonable, and I used a rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken and that was another 15 minutes to debone and chop. All in all, I'd count on an hour to make this from start to finish. P.S. Did not have any problems with biscuits cooking all the way through in 10-12 minutes at 400 degrees.

    This recipe was a hit. I shared it with another family as well and they enjoyed it equally. I would not go as far as calling this recipe easy it really does call for a lot of cutting and prep work but the fresh vegetables really made it worth it. I did spice it up and change the sauce quite a bit because after living in the South for so long I know how to make a mean gravy. I will make this recipe again but will allow a lot more time it did take probably an hour and a half to prepare. I really do love all the recipes that Six Sisters puts out.
  12. Just took this out of the oven and it smells incredible! It’s actually the third time I’ve made it since it’s one meal the whole family can agree on. I add some shredded cheese to the mix and cook the biscuits completely separate from the filling since we don’t like the consistency of the biscuits on top when reheating. It’s a definite keeper in my house!!

    I just wanted to stop in and say that I have made this SO many times for our family and it is a huge hit! My 7,3, and 1 year old love it!! It has also become my go to meal for friends after baby, surgery, or illness ❤ I am taking it to some neighbors tonight and will be making it for our family as well so I just had to stop in and say thanks! I also switch out for more classic veggies (peas and celery) and I often use a rotisserie chicken to save on time and boost flavor. ? Yum.
    • Hi Ashley. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a nice comment. You definitely made our day.
