A creamy, chicken and vegetable studded filling is topped with biscuit pieces and baked until bubbly and golden brown. This family-friendly Skillet Chicken and Biscuit Pot Pie is an easy, comforting weeknight dinner choice.
I was recently informed by one of my boys that I have not made enough chicken pot pies in his lifetime. I thought this was a very wise observation on his part so I set upon changing that by whipping up this super easy chicken and biscuit inspired version that I think you’re all gonna love.
It’s easy as all get out thanks to a trusty store-bought rotisserie chicken and a canister of buttermilk biscuit dough. But most importantly, it is really, really good. As a matter of fact, I believe that chicken-pot-pie-deprived child of mine’s exact words after he tried it were “I’m obsessed”.
I’m hoping you will be too!
The traditional pot pie filling includes the usual suspects – onion, carrot, celery, and peas, but I also added some frozen corn. The fun thing with recipes like this is that you can add in any veggies your family loves.
I think mushrooms or chopped broccoli florets would both be a fabulous addition.
It’s made from start to finish in one 12-inch skillet; starting out on the stove top and finishing off in the oven to create the golden brown biscuit crust.

- ½ teaspoon seasoned salt
- ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

- 1 to 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
- 16.3 ounce can refrigerated buttermilk biscuits , (8 biscuits)
- Heat oven to 375 degrees F.

Once butter has melted, add onions, carrots, celery, thyme, seasoned salt and pepper; cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until tender. Stir in flour; cook 1 to 3 minutes or until beginning to brown. Gradually stir in broth and milk, cooking and stirring 1 to 3 minutes longer, until bubbly and thickened. Stir in chicken, peas, corn, and parsley. Remove from heat.
- Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Cut each biscuit into fourths. Top chicken mixture with biscuit pieces.
- Bake in preheated oven for 16 to 20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Questions and Reviews
What do think about adding frozen hash brown cubes?
I’m not sure if the texture would be good but it might be worth a shot! I would suggest thawing them in advance.
prepared in a regular frying pan poured into a baking dish,,,would double filling next time ..eay and delicious
I love chicken pie, but have never been able to quite nail the recipe. This was simple and simply fantastic. Next time I am going to slive the biscuits in half after quartering them so that they cover the entire dish and I am sure it will be as delicious as it was the first time. Thank you!
Holy cow this is awesome!! Making it again, second time in two weeks….new addition to the meal plan rotation. Thank you Valerie!!
What’s the reasoning behind using frozen peas and corn and fresh for the other veggies? Is it possible to use all fresh?
Sure! The reasoning is just to make it easier. Frozen peas and corn are kitchen staples that are easy to stock all year long.
How do i adjust this recipe to cook and Include raw chicken instead rotisserie?
You would need to cook the chicken before adding it to the recipe.
This was phenomenal. I added 3 minced garlic, because I add garlic to literally everything. This was delicious and insanely easy to make!
Do you use all frozen veggies for the carrots and all or fresh? This looks delicious!
Hi Crystal. I use fresh carrots and celery and frozen peas and corn.
I don’t have any oven proof skillet so can I mix up the veggies in a regular skillet and then put in an aluminum pan in the oven? Thank you
A skillet is preferred but I think it might work out okay. Let me know if you try it.
