I am über-excited to share this recipe with you today. This one was a knock-it-out of the ballpark hit with my family. It had that incredible cooked-all-day flavor. It’s a thick and creamy filling filled with chunks of chicken and potatoes and other veggies. And it’s all served over biscuits. I have played with this recipe over the years and I’m finally really happy with the end result so it was definitely time to share. The different seasonings added were the key in making sure this doesn’t taste blah.
Now, you can use this filling and actually make a proper pie with it. Use your favorite store bought pie crust, homemade pie crust or my Wham Bam Pie Crust and then use this filling inside. It’s whatever you have the time and energy to do. I think spooning this filling over the biscuits makes it a perfect weeknight meal. Also, if you want some great homemade biscuit recipes, I’ve included a few of my favorites in this post. Bonus, the leftovers for this reheat beautifully!
4 frozen chicken breasts
1 tsp. dried minced onion
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
salt & pepper, to taste
2 cans condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
3-4 russet potatoes, diced
2 cups frozen peas & carrots
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 can biscuits, frozen biscuits or homemade biscuit recipe, prepared
optional: shredded cheese for topping
Place frozen chicken breasts into the bottom of the crock pot. Season chicken with dried onion, poultry seasoning and salt and pepper.
Then top with diced potatoes. I leave the skin on the potatoes. I love the way it looks and tastes. I just scrub the potatoes first, then dice them up.
Cover and cook on low for about 6 hours. Then, using two forks, shred the chicken or take it out and dice it up, then put it back in the crock pot. Chicken will be very tender so this should be quick. Stir in frozen peas and carrots.
Cover and cook for an additional 20-30 minutes. While it’s finishing up, this would be a good time to start preparing your biscuits. Make the biscuits according to the package directions. I have a couple of homemade recipes here on the blog if you want a homemade recipe. I had some leftover Cheddar & Chive Drop Biscuits so I used those here. Boy, did that add a lot of flavor! So good!
Once biscuits are done. You can split them open and put into a bowl or on a plate.Then serve the chicken pot pie mixture on top.
