Ingredients Needed for Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuits

To bring this comforting dish to life, gather the following ingredients:

  • Veggies: celery, onion, carrots, peas, garlic (optionally potatoes)
  • Dry Seasonings: garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, rosemary, sage, chicken bullion, flour
  • Chicken: chicken tenders or any preferred cuts
  • Liquids: chicken stock, half & half, soy sauce
  • Biscuits: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cayenne, garlic powder, cheddar cheese, buttermilk, butter (or store-bought biscuits)

How to Make Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuits

  1. Start by cooking the chicken in a pot of chicken stock. Bring it to a boil, then simmer on low heat for 15 minutes. Remove the chicken, tent it with foil, and set it aside. Reserve the chicken stock for later use.

  2. Prepare the veggies by dicing the carrots, onion, celery, and mincing the garlic.

  3. In a 12″ cast-iron skillet (or a large sauté pan that can later be transferred to an oven-safe casserole dish), melt the butter and sauté the veggies, excluding the garlic and peas. Cook until they become softened, which should take about 5 minutes.

  4. Add the garlic, dry seasonings, salt, and pepper. Then, incorporate the flour. Mix well and cook for a few minutes. Gradually drizzle in the reserved chicken stock, whisking until smooth. Follow with the addition of half & half and soy sauce.

  5. Whisk together the dry ingredients for the biscuits. In a separate bowl, mix the melted butter and cold buttermilk until small lumps form. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients and toss until just barely mixed. Be careful not to overmix the batter.

  6. Using a 1/4 cup scoop (such as an ice cream or cookie scoop), lightly oil it, and scoop out portions of the biscuit dough. Shape them into 1/2-inch patties and place them on top of the pot pie filling, leaving about 4 inches of space between each biscuit. Bake in a preheated oven at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 minutes.

After removing the pot pie from the oven, spread a mixture of melted butter, garlic powder, and minced parsley over the tops of the biscuits. Bake for an additional 3 minutes. Serve this warm and bubbly delight straight from the oven.
