Substitutions And Additions
BISCUITS: This great recipe is topped with buttery, flaky Grands biscuits. It’s a tasty twist on traditional chicken pot pie, which is made in a pie crust. For some other fun alternatives, consider topping your casserole with either crescent rolls or puff pastry instead of biscuits.
CRESCENT ROLLS: Roll out 1 (8-ounce) can of crescent roll dough and top your baking dish with the flattened rolls. Press together the seams as well as the edges to create a seal. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.
PUFF PASTRY: Roll out the puff pastry and slice it into 2-inch strips. Create a lattice top with the strips to cover your casserole dish. Top your casserole with the pastry, making sure to press the edges into the dish. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the puff pastry is golden brown. Cover with foil if the edges start to burn.
CHEESE: Add a sprinkle of cheddar cheese on top of the filling before topping it with the biscuits for a cheesy twist.
CHICKEN: This delicious casserole recipe is easiest when you make it with rotisserie chicken, but you can also make it with any kind of cooked chicken. Chicken breasts are a popular alternative — simply cook and shred 2 pounds of chicken breasts before starting to make this casserole.
How To Make This Chicken Pot Pie Casserole Recipe
STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 375°F Place the biscuits on a baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and keep the oven on. This will ‘pre-bake’ the biscuits so that they cook fully with your casserole.
STEP TWO: While the biscuits are baking, in a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of butter over medium-high heat. Add the frozen vegetables to the skillet and cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS
Most frozen vegetable mixes will work for this recipe. Traditionally, corn, peas, carrots, and green beans are used in chicken pot pie; but you can use your favorite mix of veggies. Or use your own fresh veggies (like mushrooms or celery) to add variety.
STEP THREE: Add the chicken, milk, and cream of chicken soup to the skillet. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine and heat for 5 minutes, until the mixture is fully heated and bubbly hot.
STEP FOUR: Spray a 9 x 13-inch casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the chicken mixture into the prepared baking dish and spread evenly.
STEP FIVE: Place the pre-baked biscuits on top of the filling with the baked side down and the raw side up. Arrange them in 2 rows of 4 biscuits each.
STEP SIX: Next, place the 2 tablespoons of melted butter and garlic powder in a small microwaveable bowl. Microwave, covered, in 30-second increments until the butter is fully melted. Pour the melted butter over the top of the biscuits.
If garlic isn’t your favorite flavor, try adding rosemary, thyme, or Italian seasoning to your butter topping instead. Or, leave this step out and bake your biscuits plain.
STEP SEVEN: Place the casserole in the oven and bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes then tent with aluminum foil and bake for an additional 10 to 12 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown. You’ll know it’s done when the biscuits will turn a beautiful golden brown on top. Serve immediately.

IN THE FRIDGE: You can store the leftover chicken casserole in the fridge for up to three days in an airtight container. Bear in mind that the biscuits will soften, so they won’t be as crispy as when fresh out of the oven.
IN THE FREEZER: If you plan to make this chicken pot pie casserole in advance, then it’s best to freeze it before you bake it. Cover with aluminum foil and store in the freezer for up to three months. You can then bake it straight from the freezer.
