Dinner Tonight: Chicken Pot Pie

Is there anything more comforting than a Chicken Pot Pie?  I really don’t think there is.  I can remember two specific days in my life that really sucked.  Bad.  And all I wanted to eat was a Chicken Pot Pie.  For me…it’s the ultimate comfort food.  (And I find it even more comforting if I’m eating it while snuggled on the couch watching TV…which is something I never do…unless I’m having a bad day and eating Chicken Pot Pie.)
This recipe though, will keep you happy good days or comfort you on hard ones.  It’s easy, easy, easy and so delicious.  You really must make this.  Like today.  
Shopping List
1 tablespoon butter
1 pound chopped, cooked chicken (click here to see how I get my chicken)
2 cups frozen vegetable medley (mine had corn, carrots, peas and Lima beans in it)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup milk
1 can biscuits (I used Grands)
Salt and Pepper (S&P)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Melt butter in an oven safe skillet over medium-high heat (see below if you don’t have an oven safe skillet).  Add in your cooked chicken, frozen veggies, soup and milk with a generous amount of S&P.  Heat through about 5 minutes.
Top mixture with your biscuits and pop in the oven.  Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until biscuits are brown and chicken mixture is bubbly.
Remove from oven and serve.

So simple, right?!  If you don’t have an oven safe skillet, then just transfer everything from the skillet to an 8×8 glass baking dish and bake it in there.  I used a rotisserie chicken on this night, so this meal really only took me a few minutes to prep.  You will love this dinner!  I promise.  It really made my heart happy.

    Shay, you should check out my chicken pot pie cupcakes…they are also very easy and super yummy!!

  • The Cantelmo Family April 4, 2013 at 12:34 pm

    Chicken pot pie is my absolute favorite comfort food! I'm trying to stay away from canned food. Do you have any suggestions what I would use instead?

  • aprilparrish April 4, 2013 at 12:48 pm

    Sounds super easy- just the way I like it! Thanks!

  • Anonymous April 4, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    Shay- Thanks for the recipe. I've tried something similar before but the biscuits were way under-cooked on the bottom. Any tips?

  • Aubs April 4, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    oh yummmm!!! comfort food at its best!!

  • Maria April 4, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    I love chicken pot pie and it is definitely one of my comfort foods too…great tips for the "chicken" prep…I can definitely use one or two of them:)

  • Alison @ Get Your Pretty On April 4, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    It is the ultimate comfort food. Both of my daughters are hooked on it too.

  • Marie Matter April 4, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    My favorite comfort food too! I made a version with cream cheese both in the creamy sauce and the biscuits and oh man…it was to die for! But I like your idea of using the veggie medley… I spent way too long chopping veggies for mine!

  • michelle April 4, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    oh that looks so good! chicken pot pie is the best comfort food!

  • The Lazy Stepford Wife April 4, 2013 at 11:33 pm

    As mush I love reading recipes, it is rare that I actually make them- let alone the day that I read them. Well, sure enough I made your chicken pot pie tonight, and it was fiance approved! So yummy, and so easy!! I also made your pumpkin-choc-chip cookies. Apparently, I was feeling fall-ish today 🙂 They were also SO easy, and are going down way too easily, as I putz around on the computer. I am planning a "what I've been cooking" post, and it looks like your stuff might be popping up a lot- hope that's ok! It's just so easy, and so lovely all at the same time. It just makes sense!

    Happy writing & Happy cooking,

    I love your version of chicken pot pie! I make one with jarred chicken gravy mixed with vegetables and chicken, in a double pie crust. Very yummy! Thanks for another version.

    I'm glad this pot pie recipe is very easy to make.

  • Lisa April 28, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    For some reason when I made this, the biscuits looked totally done on the outside but were completely uncooked on the inside…otherwise it was great though! maybe i should have used smaller biscuits…

  • Maddie May 10, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    Hi Shay!

    I made this recipe last night…. seriously amazing. I ate so much chicken pot pie as a kid I haven't had it a lot as an adult. This is beyond… one of my favorite of your recipes! And there is so much girl math in this one if you load it with veggies. 🙂

    Thanks again! Your blog is actually making me a cook. Blessings!

    This recipe was so-ooooo good! You weren't kidding. Thanks for doing these weekly meal plans for us. They are very helpful, and it's fun to think how we're all cooking the same dinners all across the country.

    P.S. Thanks for all the shout-outs to MI…..I graduated from Oakland University in good ol' Rochester! I think it's really neat when you mention stories about your time spent here.

  • Erin October 24, 2013 at 2:01 am

    Made this last night and my 2 picky kids loved it! The hubby has also already ate most of it. Hit in our house and it was so easy!

  • Kathi Mackintosh January 14, 2014 at 2:34 pm

    I had the same problem that I see posted here a couple of times. The biscuits were burning on the top and completely uncooked at the bottom. I even cut off the burned top of the biscuits and left it in the oven at a lower temperature for about 20 more minutes and the biscuits did not cook. What am I doing wrong? I had a couple extra biscuits that I ended up cooking separately and served the chicken with them instead.

  • Mix and Match Mama January 14, 2014 at 2:46 pm

    I think the problem is that you're expecting the bottom to get all crusty but that won't happen because it's sitting on top of liquid. The top layers will bake through and get crusty but the bottom layer will stay soft. It can't get crusty because of where it's sitting on top of your pot pie. I hope this helps! This is a staple in our house!

    Just made this tonight. Tasted great! Definitely what was needed on yet another cold winter night

  • Amber781 March 28, 2014 at 12:42 am

    Hi Shay! Made this tonight and I see your comments above about the biscuits not cooking on the bottom. I had the same thing but mine isn't just soft, it's gooey and uncooked. The tops are definitely cooked. What can you suggest for next time? Thanks!!

  • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2014 at 9:41 am

    Your biscuits are done! They do not cook on the bottom. They brown up on top but the bottoms do not cook up. If this bothers you, then just bake the biscuits separately and pop one on the top before you serve.

  • Amber781 March 28, 2014 at 5:01 pm

    Thanks so much Shay! 🙂

  • Christy November 6, 2014 at 12:25 am

    I made this tonight with the help of my kiddos! They loved it and so did I. It was a huge hit in our family.

  • Christy November 6, 2014 at 12:26 am

    I forgot to ask… it this a good meal the next day (reheated)? We only ate about half of it (my little ones are toddlers).

  • Anonymous February 1, 2015 at 9:39 pm

    Shay I found your blog and love it ! I made this tonight and it was delicious on a cold upstate ny winter night !!!! Thank you !!!!

  • Two Girls One Office November 9, 2015 at 8:52 pm

    I have read your blog for ages and always look forward to Meal Planning Monday. I know the recipes are created with families in mind, but I just recently got married and my husband and I use your blog for inspiration every week! The recipes are delicious and easy. Will definitely be purchasing your cookbook! Cheers! Amy
