About Skillet Chicken Pot Pie
We make a lot of chicken recipes for the family, and the easier, the better. I’m talking about favorite family meals like our slow cooker chicken and biscuits, crockpot creamy chicken, and our kid-friendly jambalaya.
This skillet pot pie works great with leftover chicken for any of the above recipes, or even our panko chicken.
Our family of six boys loves pot pies, which is why we make them so often. You can’t have too many good potpie recipes, especially when they’re this easy, economical, and delicious.
I had my eye on this beautiful skillet meal for some time. It’s beyond easy to make, and because I like potatoes in my pot pie, I decided to add a few.
The other reason that I added some spuds is that I love peeling and cutting potatoes. Weird right? For some reason, I find it relaxing. Don’t judge me.
Besides the weird thing about being able to slice potatoes (for me), this recipe uses my favorite kitchen tool, the timeless cast-iron skillet. I got mine from Amazon, which has a great selection of cast iron skillets.
How to make it
(Full recipe at the end of this post)
- Sautée some vegetables with the potatoes
- Add some flour, broth, and cream.
- Toss in some cooked diced chicken and seasoning.
- Place some store-bought biscuits on top of the mixture and then bake.
- Easy. Peasy
- Start this pot pie recipe by creating a chicken and vegetable base, using a cast-iron skillet.
- Pop open a can of refrigerated biscuits and spread them evenly over the chicken mixture.
Substitutions and Variations
It’s easy to switch up this skillet pot pie and use what you have on hand.
If you want to jazz things up a bit, bake a batch of these jalapeno cheddar biscuits instead of a can of store-bought ones.
As I mentioned earlier, I’ve put together a few pot pies before, and none have been better than this one. It all makes me chuckle, thinking back to growing up and how I loved the frozen pot pies from the grocery store.
Back then, the “good” ones always had a crust on the bottom. Not this one, though. And guess what, it’s one of the really good ones!
