Easy chicken pot pie made with biscuits instead of a traditional crust. This budget meal is definitely a family favorite!
I just love a good old fashioned chicken pot pie, especially during the colder months. Seriously, nothing screams comfort food like a homemade chicken pot pie. The hot creamy pie filling with juicy chicken meat, and mixed vegetables. It just doesn’t get any better. I personally love all types of chicken pot pie (even the little frozen ones… no shame in my game). However, When I make chicken pot pies, I like to keep it easy. Instead of using crust, I prefer to make chicken pot pie with biscuits.
Canned Biscuits: The Secret Ingredient to Quick and Easy Chicken Pot Pie
Yup biscuits. Preferably canned biscuits, because it takes less time. I also use cream of chicken soup & mixed vegetables for my chicken pot pie. Using these easy ingredients save me time, and money. So it’s a win, win!
This easy chicken pot pie with biscuits recipe is one of my family favorites. Although It’s made with vegetables, I usually serve it with more veggies on the side.

Could you tell me please. Your recipe says instead of pastry you say biscuits. What sort biscuits.
Hi Margaret. Regular Canned Biscuits. Buttermilk biscuits will work fine.
Yes, try a different kind next time 🙂

Love it. I just unthawed some turkey from Christmas and used it and it’s delicious.
I cook many of your recipes. I just did this one tonight. My family loved it. Nice, quick and easy recipe. I added peppers and onions. Thank you!
Thanks for trying!

Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuits
My family loved this! We have had it three times since i found he recipe it easy and fast after working all day, thank you so much!
Thanks for trying!
GREAT recipe for a working mommy! Tammy family LOVED IT! Thanks! Your recipes are great!
I have used several kinds of canned biscuits now for this recipe. Seems the “ buttermilk” style biscuits do pretty good. The “original” ones don’t do well. I agree this recipe is on point
Super yummy! I used buttermilk biscuits like recommended, and had a similar issue to others, the bottoms of the biscuits would not cook. So half way through I flipped the biscuits over and that worked really well. Makes good leftovers too!
I love this recipe! I’m thinking about making it for my sister who recently had a baby, would we be able to freeze this before baking?
Hi Mary! I never froze it before, I’m sorry.
Thanks for posting this. My mom had a version of this in the hospital this summer and I’ve been trying to find a recipe ever since.

Making this tonight! looks so good!! will try adding rice or maybe putting it over some egg noodles.
I made this tonight and it was so good and easy. I used large biscuits and just used one can of 8 and it worked perfect! Will definitely be making this again soon.
This recipe was delicious! I will definitely make it again.
This recipe is delicious! My 28 years old son eat most of it. Next time I will hide some for me and me only.
How my gosh this happened to me too! Was such a pain! Just when I thought dinner was ready…. Nope!
Wish I would have read your comment before!

Hi Rosie, if I use grands biscuits, do I use 8 instead of 16 biscuits?
Yes, you’d just use the 8. Great question.
Absolutely love your personality! I made this dish for my family just now and they love it. I’m not a big fan of pot pie but you may have changed my mind! Will be trying more recipes!
I used Cresent rolls instead of biscuits. I rolled the whole thing over the top and let it cook
Thank you so much luv!!! I appreciate you trying my recipe.
I’ve been making this a lot lately, probably too much but my boyfriend rather likes it
Des turner says
Made last and it was wonderful. I boiled my chicken to shredded it, and used seasoning and some of the boiling water for flavor! Great hit at my house
Easy and delicious!
Delicious! I’ve made it twice already and it’ll be a frequent go-to for an easy meal!
Would canned vegetables be ok instead of frozen?
For best results, stick to the ingredients listed.
3 days after Thanksgiving and the whole family is sick. Needed something mild on the tummy and easy for sick mom to make. I used canned chicken, canned peas and carrots, skipped the cheese (sorry but something very wrong about cheese in a pot pie, maybe I’m just old fashioned) and the can of soup. Had a tube of biscuits in the fridge so thankfully everything was on hand. Threw it all together with little effort and it’s baking now. Thank you for this recipe, my sick household appreciates it!
You’re so sweet Abby! Thanks so much for the lovely feedback!
Had to add- you have a beautiful smile, and the rest of your recipes look amazing!
My whole family loved it. I also added a can of diced potatoes. Next time I’ll cook the biscuits separate since they didn’t cook evenly for me. But definitely making it again
Might be a silly question., but I’m going to try this tonight. Do you cook the biscuits separate or lay them on top?
Hi Hannah, That’s not a silly question. You can cook them separate, and add on top once done. This may actually be better, since some people are saying that their biscuits come out raw if not cooked before. Happy Holidays!
Well my biscuits came out raw, I used two cans of buttermilk biscuits and they are bigger. I’ve had to put it back in two times and it still is partly doughy. Don’t know what I did wrong but it smells good
Hi Jennifer! This seems to be a common issue. I’ve been recommending that people bake the biscuits for about 5-7 minutes before, then placing it on top of the pot pie mixture, and baking as directed. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Do you just add the cream of chicken soup by itself or with water?
Thank you for answering everyone’s questions.
Hello Theresa. No, I just use what is listed 🙂
Loved this recipe! I had the same issue with the biscuits being raw on the bottom. I will definitely try to cook the biscuits for a few mins before and then add them. My husband and son loved this recipe! It is for sure a keeper!
I have made this twice now and it is a huge family favorite. I haven’t had any issues with the biscuits not being cooked thru but I did read all concerns before making and cut my biscuits smaller (used Grands Flakey Buttermilk, each cut in 8) Reminded me of a cross between potpie and chicken and dumplings. I even had some left over the last time and froze it all together. When I took it out of the freezer, I pried off the biscuits, warmed the base in the microwave, put the biscuits back on top and popped in the oven to warm back up. Came back just like fresh!
Thanks so much for the feedback. XOXO
