Homemade chicken pot pie with biscuit topping

Usually when I think of a pot pie I think of the frozen grocery store kind in the red box.  I am not a microwave meal kind of girl.  We didn’t grow up on it, so it’s hard for me to do much more than heat up my lunch/leftover pizza in it.  With this pot pie, you can use leftover rotisserie chicken, or slow cook some in the crockpot, with seasonings of your choice.  Top with two ingredient quick biscuits, and you have yourself a dinner that is sure to warm you up and taste great the next day in the office microwave.

 

3 sliced carrots warmed until tender (hot water on stove 5 minutes)

2 T butter

½ sweet onion, chopped

1 cup fresh or canned green beans chopped into bite-size pieces

3 T flour

1 tsp kosher salt

¼ tsp black pepper

1 ½ cups chicken broth (more if it seems too thick)

2 cups shredded chicken or rotisserie chicken (6 hours low in crockpot with poultry seasoning, chicken broth, salt and pepper)

 

Biscuit topping

1 cup self rising flour

½ cup heavy whipping cream

 

 

Preheat oven to 375

 

Melt butter in saucepan and add onions stirring until soft, about 2 minutes

Add carrots and green beans to onions, stirring for 2 additional minutes

Stir in flour, salt and pepper until thickened and smooth, about a minute

Add broth, cooking on medium high heat until simmering 8-10 minutes

Add chicken

 

Mix biscuit topping ingredients together, knead into dough and cut out biscuits

 

Place chicken mixture into ovenproof bowls, top with biscuit (add melted butter to tops if you want a golden brown color)

Cook for 30 minutes or until biscuits are brown

 

Serve warm or keep leftovers for up to a week

  1. What a perfect winter-time dinner! I’ve not made chicken pot pie in a very long time and I’m not sure why it’s gone into rotation. We are having such a very cold winter in the south and this would be a nice change of pace from soups and stews. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us!
