What Makes This Comfort Cook Super Special?

Sure, there are a million different takes on the traditional chicken pot pie, but a lot of them require a ton of baking time, cooking loads of different ingredients, and crossing your fingers that the filling doesn’t turn out runny. This takes all of the difficult and time-consuming steps you will find in other recipes and eliminates them completely! Here’s what makes this comfort cook extra special:

Minimal baking time. Instead of waiting close to an hour for a pie to bake, cut out the time-intensive steps and get the irresistible pastry mouthfeel with a simple drop biscuit.

Loaded with flavor. The perfect 1-2 punch of flavor with the perfectly seasoned rotisserie chicken and sharp shredded cheddar cheese.

Super customizable. Use your favorite precooked vegetables for a meal that offers some nutrients while still being loaded with family-friendly flavors that will please even the pickiest eater.

Beginner friendly. Even the most inexperienced home cooks can follow this simple recipe. Creating these comforting flavors and filling portions will give anyone confidence in the kitchen.

Ingredients To Grab

Rotisserie Chicken- This casserole is a great excuse to pick up a rotisserie chicken from your favorite big box store or use up leftover chicken from meal prep this week.

Chicken Broth- Boxed or canned work just fine. I prefer to go with low sodium to counteract the saltiness of some of the other ingredients.

Cream of Chicken Soup- I get it, it’s not the healthiest ingredient to cook with, but it’s flavorful, cheap, and easy to keep in the pantry to throw together a casserole when you’re in a hurry. Check out my variations at the bottom of this post for ways to make the dish without it if you prefer.

Vegetable Blend- We’re a very simple “peas and carrots” type of family with this casserole, but you can adjust the vegetables to fit your family’s tastebuds.

Heavy Cream- This adds creaminess and helps thicken the “pot pie” filling so this eats more like a casserole than a soup.

Cheese Biscuit Mix- You know that chain seafood restaurant that has THE MOST ADDICTIVE cheddar biscuits? Well, they just so happen to sell the cheddar biscuit mix in a box at the grocery store, and it’s what makes this casserole truly special.

Shredded Cheddar Cheese- Mix into the biscuit batter to create a cheesy bite.

Butter- This is needed to brush the top of the biscuits after baking to make the dish extra decadent.

How To Make Chicken Pot Pie Casserole

Want to know how to make a chicken pot pie without pie crust? This Chicken Pot Pie recipe is super simple and doesn’t require making or handling a delicate pastry!

  1. Create the cheesy biscuit topping. In a medium bowl, combine the ingredients as directed on the box of cheddar biscuits.
  2. Mix up the casserole base. In a 9×13 casserole dish, combine the cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, heavy cream, mixed vegetables, and rotisserie chicken. Mix until the only lumps remaining are the vegetables.
  3. Layer the casserole. Sprinkle some cheddar cheese on top of the filling. Dollop the cheesy biscuit mixture on top of the pot pie filling and cheddar cheese. You will want it positioned in 6-8 separate portions or “biscuits”.
  4. Bake it up. Bake the assembled casserole at 400F for 12-15 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown and the casserole is perfectly hot and bubbly.

Tips And Tricks

Curious how you can make this chicken pot pie casserole even more simple and delicious? Here are a few simple tips and tricks to experiment with:

Use prepared rotisserie chicken meat. Many delis or large grocery store chains will offer rotisserie chicken meat removed from the carcass to make measuring and using in recipes even more quick and easy.

Grab frozen mixed veggies. Instead of precooking a variety of vegetables or opening a bunch of cans, just grab a bag of frozen mixed vegetables and toss them in the casserole filling. They will cook up in the same amount of time as the cheese biscuits.

Use premade biscuits. Whipping up the cheddar biscuit mix just takes a few minutes, but the overall bake time for this casserole is completely based on how long the biscuits take to cook completely on top of the filling. If you omit the biscuits and grab a package of pre-baked biscuits, you can pop the casserole dish in the oven just long enough for it to get warm and bubbly and then it’s ready to eat! Just pop a biscuit on top with a sprinkle of cheese and you’re in business.

Variations

This recipe is so yummy you’ll wonder how you could possibly make it even more irresistible. Well, depending on how creative you’re feeling, I may have a few suggestions that you’ll like even more!

Make it even cheesier. Mix in an extra 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese when mixing the ingredients together to create the filling.

Double the topping. If you’re a sucker for those soft, cheesy biscuits, consider doubling up the amount of biscuit mix used. Adjust the baking time as needed to ensure the crowded casserole dish allows the biscuits to bake through.

Swap out the protein. Have a different leftover cooked protein you want to use? Just toss in the same amount of the other protein as you would chicken and cook as directed. If swapping with red meat, consider using cream of mushroom or cream of potato soup instead of cream of chicken soup.

What To Serve With Chicken Pot Pie Casserole

Not sure what to serve with this casserole since it already has what you need for a complete meal all in one bite? Here are some ideas to experiment with:

  • Baked Potatoes- Open up a baked potato, fluff the filling, and scoop a hearty portion of this casserole directly on top of it.
  • Salad- This casserole can be extremely heavy, so the freshness of a crisp green salad will help cut some of the richness.
  • Mashed Potatoes- Create a chicken, potato, and vegetable bowl by layering the mashed potatoes and casserole and topping with additional cheese.
  • Asparagus- Complement some of the other vegetables baked into the casserole with the delicious flavors of grilled or roasted asparagus.

How Long Does It Last?

If you want to enjoy the casserole leftovers or want to make this dish ahead of time, it will stay just as good as the day you made it for 3-4 days in the refrigerator. Toss any leftovers in an airtight container before refrigerating to keep it fresh.

If making it ahead of time to enjoy later, prepare the filling and the biscuits separately and simply top the cooked casserole filling with a pre-made cheddar biscuit and enjoy!
