  • 4 tablespoons of butter, divided in half
  • 4 cups of frozen vegetable variety (corn, peas, carrots, green beans)
  • 4 cups of shredded cooked chicken
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 (10.5-ounce) cans of cream of chicken soup

Pot Pie Casserole 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.

PRO TIP:

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.

Chicken Pot Pie Casserole with Biscuits Variations

Chicken Pot Pie Casserole with Biscuits is a comforting dish for a weeknight meal. Here are some variations you can try to spice things up:

  • PROTEIN: Shredded turkey, baked ham, or ground sausage can replace the chicken for a different flavor profile.
  • VEGGIES: Try one to two cups of diced green beans, sweet corn, celery, or frozen mixed vegetables. Add eight ounces of mushrooms for a rich, earthy flavor to the filling.
  • CHEESE: Sprinkle one to two cups of shredded cheddar cheese over the filling before topping with biscuits for extra cheesiness. Or add a cup of shredded cheddar cheese to your biscuit dough for cheesy biscuits.
  • SPICY: Add a quarter cup of diced green chilies, cayenne pepper, or hot sauce to the filling for a spicy twist.
  • HERBS: Mix a tablespoon of fresh herbs like rosemary, thyme, or chives into the biscuit dough for a fragrant twist.

How To Serve This Easy Chicken Pot Pie Casserole

This easy chicken pot pie recipe can be a stand-alone dish, but it also goes great with lighter sides like salads. You can’t go wrong with a simple homemade Caesar salad or macaroni pasta salad.

Chicken Pot Pie Casserole Recipe with Biscuits storage

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.

    Such a yummy dish for a cold day! I didn’t have any chicken prepared so I threw 2 large chicken breast in the air fryer then shredded when it was done. Turned out so good!

  2. Brenna says

    I’d like to make a few of these to put in the freezer and give people when they have a baby, etc. Would you still bake the biscuits first and flip them upside down before putting the casserole in the freezer?

    I have made this before with crescent rolls and it was amazing, I just feel like the crescent rolls didn’t crisp as much as I’d like and I did let it cook longer. My question is, can I prepare this in the morning with the crescent rolls and stick it in the fridge til the evening and then throw it in the oven?
