Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuit Crust

Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuit Crust

Introduction

This is a combo of my Chicken Pot Pie filling and my mother in-law's Biscuit Style Crust. They go together fabulously. This is awesome with a double crust, but if you are watching your fat intake, it is also yummy with just a top crust. Also, the homemade gravy is wonderful, but if you have leftover gravy or prefer to use canned or jarred, this is even easier. Enjoy!

  • Wonderful! I worried about all that butter, but I stayed within my daily guidelines, and as I usually use olive or canola oil for everything, I knew it wouldn't hurt. The meal was delicious! Saving the recipe for reruns, especially when i have company!! Good meal to share! - 1/28/11

  • This was GREAT!!!! I have been searching for a good chicken pot pie filling and I have finally found it. It was simple and tasted wonderful! I didn't use the top because I had some fillo dough that I had left and wanted to use. But i will next time since I will be making this again and again. - 4/24/10

  • Great recipe- unfortunately my husband added waaaaaaaaaaay too much flour and then overcooked the crust to compensate. Thanks! Next time I'll make it alone. - 3/26/09
