Meal Monday: Chicken Pot Pie

Nick and I love getting the Marie Callendar Chicken Pot Pie's at Costco.  They are so good but they have one thing seriously wrong with them: the chicken.  We never eat it, we both always pick it out.  It has a weird rubbery texture and is just gross.  Nick has been suggesting for a while (like a couple years now) that we make a homemade pot pie but I never did because it just sounded complicated.  I came across a recipe at Mix and Match Mama and realized it didn't need to be complicated after all!  Here is my version of a homemade chicken pot pie.

Shopping List
1 lb shredded chicken
2 cups frozen vegetable medley (mine had carrots, corn, lima beans and green beans in it)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup milk
1 tbsp butter
1 can biscuits (I used Grands Homestyle Buttermilk and Reduced Fat)
Salt & Pepper


Directions
**Before we start, let's talk about the chicken.  What I used was actually a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket and I shredded it by hand.  I think this is the simplest way!  It took me about 15 minutes to get all of that chicken.. so easy.  I didn't have to worry about spending all that time to cook the chicken, let it cool, and then shred it. 

1) Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

2) Melt your butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat.  Add in your cooked chicken, frozen veggies, can of soup, milk and salt & pepper.  Heat for about 5 minutes.


3) Meanwhile, place your biscuits on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes only.
**I prebake the biscuits because I sometimes find that putting the uncooked biscuits into a wet baking mixture means they do not cook all the way through.

4) Transfer your chicken and veggie mixture into a lightly greased 8x8 glass baking dish.


5) Top mixture with your prebaked biscuits, brown side of biscuits down.

I'm all about the more biscuits the better!

6) Bake dish in preheated oven for 10 minutes.  Your biscuits should be browned and the chicken and veggie mixture should be bubbling. 


**A can of Grands comes with 8 biscuits but I could only fit 6 into my baking dish.  I cooked the other 2 by themselves on a baking sheet in case we needed extra (because everyone knows the biscuits are the best part of pot pie).  

It's that easy and is so much better than those old Marie Callendar pot pies!  This meal has definitely been added to our dinner rotation and is simple yet impressive enough to serve when guests come over.  Enjoy!

  1. This looks so good! I am definitely going to try it out! I'm with you on chicken in any kind of frozen meal usually being not very appetizing. Also, making your own you can better control the amounts of salt and seasonings which is another plus!
