How To Make An Easy Chicken Pot Pie
What’s the first step to making chicken pot pie? The chicken of course! You have a few options here – you can cook your own chicken or buy a rotisserie chicken. I simply cooked one pound of chicken breast in boiling water for this recipe. After the chicken is cooked and diced it gets combined with the frozen vegetables, mushroom soup, chicken broth and green onions. For the veggies, I use a mixture of carrots, corn, green beans and peas, but you could also add other vegetables like celery and onion if you prefer.
Next, make a simple bisquick dough for the top layer. In a small bowl, mix the bisquick with milk and an egg. Spread the bisquick layer on top of the pie, using a spatula to cover the entire thing.
The whole thing goes into the oven until the crust is golden brown (about 30 minutes). Allow the pie to cool for 10 minutes before serving. Dinner perfection!
What to Serve with Chicken Pot Pie
Chicken pot pie is a complete meal, so it is not necessary to serve it with any additional sides. If you have a large family or would like to add sides, I suggest a nice fresh salad, like this kale and cherry tomato salad.
Between the buttery biscuit crust and chicken, you already have yourself a perfect meal!
Can You Freeze Chicken Pot Pie?
The chicken pot pie recipe keeps well in the freezer. You can easily double the batch and pop one of the pot pies in the freezer for later. So convenient and great to have on hand for a busy night!
