Well as it turns out, chicken pot pie with biscuits is much easier than doing a pie! I’ve yet to come up with a healthier from-scratch easy drop biscuit recipe, but its on my list! This is one of the few times I’d use refrigerated biscuit dough, but it worked quite well and it was done in a pinch!
If you have a large cast iron pan, it works great in this recipe as it will go from stove to oven. If you don’t, alternatively you can put the stew from the skillet into a baking dish to put in the oven.
For simple ingredients the flavor came out really good. I love a good chicken pot pie. I made the filling dairy-free, but the store bought biscuits are not, so I’m going to try a drop biscuit that I can make with non-dairy butter and milk as its an easy enough swap out!
The filling was quick to put together and really delicious. You could always add to a pie crust if you prefer chicken pot pie instead. Mostly, I’m looking forward to playing around with this recipe a bit more, but its a delicious weeknight meal as is!
