I’ve been sick for almost a week now. I feel awful as I’ve left the family to fend for themselves at dinner time. I just didn’t have the energy to do anything other than frozen pizza or macaroni and cheese. But, this weekend I got to feeling a little better and found myself wanting some comfort food as a result of this cold. Of course, being sick means a lack of energy so I needed to make something easy. I remembered my kids loved when I made them this chicken pot pie a few weeks ago. I was completely surprised because if I give them anything other than broccoli as a vegetable, it’s complain, complain complain. this time I made an even bigger batch, hoping to have left overs but to my surprise again, they all had seconds!
We shopped at Smart & Final for a few of our Dinner ingredients (and a head start on our Halloween candy stash) .
I’m happy to say that their Foster Farms Chicken will be on sale for $.99 lb starting 9/26-10/2
Recipe: Easy Chicken Pot Pie
Time: 15 minutes prep, 15 minutes cook
Feeds approx 4-6 people
- 3 Cups of Cut/Cubed Foster Farms Chicken Breasts
- Onion and Garlic Seasonings
- 1 Can of Carrots
- 1 Can of Corn
- 1 Can of Peas
- 1 Can of Cream of Chicken Soup
- 1.5 cups of Bisquit Mix or Refrigerated Biscuits
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup of milk (for biscuit mix)
- 1/2 cup of milk for chicken and vegetable mix
Preheat the oven to 400 Degrees
Cook the chicken with the seasonings thoroughly.
Combine the cooked chicken with the soup, 1/2 cup of milk and vegetables in a large mixing bowl.
Pour the vegetable/chicken mixture in a large pie dish.
Mix the biscuit mix with the egg and milk.
Pour the biscuit mixture on top of the vegetables. If you are using refrigerated biscuits, just place them on top. To prevent spillage on the bottom, place on a foil covered cookie sheet.
Cook for approx 15-17 minutes, until the crust is a golden brown.
Cool and serve.
**You do not need to poke holes in the top for ventilation.

What about the 1/2 cup of milk you marked for the vegies and soup? Do you add that to the soup before adding to the vegies?
Need to correct directions or recipet
A couple questions. Have you ever tried using raw pie crusts on the top and bottom?
Do you need to prick any holes in the top for the steam to release?
What temperature do you put the oven on?
Thanks, can’t wait to try this.

Hi there! I have used pie crusts but I don’t always have them on hand so having a box of biscuit mix does come in handy when you are in a pinch 🙂
No holes needed and the temperature is 400 degrees, thank you for stopping by!

At what temperature should the oven be set? Use biscuit temperature settings?
