Chicken and Biscuit Pot Pie

Hey guys,
 If you are anything like me then you hate dirty dishes. I cook and clean at work all day just to come home and cook and clean some more 😒. I just hate that feeling of walking in the door and my kitchen looking like it was mauled by a hangry bear. Yes I said hangry -
adjective: hangry; comparative adjective: hangrier; superlative adjective: hangriest
  1. bad-tempered or irritable as a result of hunger.

    "I get very hangry if I miss a meal"

  So I am a big fan of one pot meals that won't dirty every pot and pan in my house. Combine that with the tummy warming feeling of comfort food and you got a winner. Nothing says comfort food better than a pot pie and my Chicken and Biscuit Pot Pie is usually a crowd pleaser plus biscuits for crust is just awesome. Here's the recipe. 


3 Chicken Breast (diced)
1 Onion (diced)
2 Cloves Garlic (minced)
1 Tablespoon Butter
11/2 cup Milk (or cream)
1/4 cup Flour
1 cup Chicken Broth
2 cup Frozen Veggie Mix
1 cup Canned Diced Potatoes (rinsed)
1 1/2 Tablespoon Thyme
1 can Biscuit Dough
salt & pepper to taste


In a large cast iron skillet or oven safe pan brown the diced chicken. 

 Remove chicken from pan and set aside. Then add the butter, diced onion and minced garlic to the pan. Cook on medium heat until onion is translucent and soft (and smells overall good). About 5 minutes. 

 Next stir the flour into the chicken broth and pour that over your onion mixture. This is the base of your gravy.

Then mix in the milk and stir making sure there are no lumps. Bring this to a boil and season with salt pepper and thyme. If you want a richer gravy use heavy cream.

 Next add in the frozen veggies and cook till veggies are heated through.

 Then add your canned potatoes and chicken back to the pan. I prefer canned potatoes because its fast, easy and I usually keep a can or two in my pantry. Plus no peeling! But if using fresh potatoes just cook a little longer till potatoes are soft.

 Last just open your can of biscuit dough and flatten slightly with your hands. This helps the biscuit cook through and not be a half cooked dough ball on your pot pie. Place the dough on top and bake 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees till biscuits are browned.

 If you don't have a oven proof skillet then transfer the mixture to a 9x13 pan. Top with biscuit dough and bake the same way.

 That's it! Easy, delicious and usually only takes me 40 minutes to make. I love these kind of recipes that let me sneak in lots of veggies in to my picky eaters. Also to cut back on calories I've used skim milk in this recipe and it still taste just as good or I'll use cream to make it extra indulgent. Either way its a great dinner option and I hope you try it out. Lastly, if you watch YouTube be sure to Subscribe to my channel for more cooking videos. See ya later. 😘
