My husbands younger sister was visiting us recently, and I asked her what she felt like eating. She’s a teenager, and I expected to hear “pizza” or “burgers” or anything that I expect typical teens to want.
She surprised me when she said “I really want chicken and dumplings, or chicken pot pie”
Alrighty then. We were hungry, so I didn’t have a ton of time to whip this up – which is why it’s so awesome. This can be made and served super fast!Super fast #chicken #potpie made in one #skillet! #recipe #homemade #comfortfoodClick To Tweet
It’s a typical chicken pot pie base, with onions, garlic, carrots and celery. Adding in flour, thyme, chicken, stock, a little half n half or milk, and some frozen peas – then topped with some refrigerated biscuits. You could certainly make them from scratch, of course (see the recipe here), but I needed this to be super simple.
Could you make it ahead?
Yes! Make it right up to the point where you put the biscuits on top. Refrigerate until needed. Reheat in the cast iron skillet for a few minutes until hot, then add the biscuits and cook until golden brown.
Here’s some Step-by-Step pics for you!
