Chicken Pot Pie Casserole
I used to love when we had chicken pot pies growing up. They were my mom’s go-to for a quick night meal. So, for me, this homemade Chicken Pot Pie Casserole is the ultimate comfort food and a new way to enjoy this traditional dinner.
In 40 minutes, I have a delicious meal that serves 4 people! It’s warm and filling, and quite frankly tastes as good as Thanksgiving leftovers.
You’re going to love this hearty casserole. Keep reading to find the ingredients list and instructions. Also, take note – the ingredients for this recipe can be changed up to make it just how you and your family like it!
What is Chicken Pot Pie Casserole?
Typically a Chicken Pot Pie is a type of meat pie that has a flakey and buttery top like a pie crust, and sometimes a bottom pie crust. A pot pie can be filled with a variety of fillings, but usually, a chicken pot pie will be filled with chicken, vegetables, and a soup base.
This recipe is a bit different. We won’t be making a classic pot pie, but instead a chicken pot pie casserole! I love it because it’s kind of like making multiple pot pies, all in the same dish! Each biscuit takes the place of your pot pie top and it is so much easier to prepare!
Ingredients For Easy Chicken Pot Pie Casserole
- Grands biscuits (8 biscuits)
- Frozen vegetable variety (corn, peas, carrots, green beans)
- Shredded rotisserie chicken (or any cooked chicken)
- Cream of Chicken soup (canned)
- Salt and pepper
- Garlic powder
What types of vegetables should I use in Pot Pie Casserole?
This is where you can get a bit creative and customize your pot pie recipe to fit whatever you and your family like!
You can use a pre-mixed packet of frozen vegetables, or you can make your own mixture! I like to put in classic veggies, like corn, peas, and carrots. But, you can choose whatever veggies you like.
What type of chicken should I use in Pot Pie Casserole?
I recommend using a rotisserie chicken. I love using these because they have so much flavor, and they are already prepared, which saves me a step! Not to mention, they are usually a great price!
If you don’t have a rotisserie chicken, or prefer to get rid of some chicken taking up space in the freezer, no problem! You can also use chicken breasts instead.
Simply thaw them out, and cook them up before adding them to the pot pie mix.
Another option would be to go vegetarian with your pot pie, and forego the chicken altogether! If you choose to do this, I suggest really loading up on the veggies that you add to the pot pie mix.
How to make Chicken Pot Pie Casserole with Biscuits
- BAKE the biscuits.
- HEAT the veggies in a large skillet.
- ADD in the chicken, milk, soup, salt, and pepper and mix together.
- POUR mixture into 9×13 baking dish
- TOP with the baked biscuits and drizzle with melted butter.
- BAKE until golden brown!

Chicken Pot Pie Casserole with Biscuits
Tip 1: You can use any vegetable varieties that you like. You can add fresh vegetables to the frozen mixture, such as mushrooms, celery, etc.
Tip 2: If you are not a garlic fan you could add your favorite seasonings to the butter topping such as rosemary, thyme, or Italian seasoning OR you can totally omit this step completely and just bake plain biscuits.
Tip 3: If you want more pot pie filling, you can totally double the filling amount!
Chicken Pot Pie Casserole FAQs
If you find your filling runny, you can add a couple of pinches of flour. Don’t add too much or it will become cloudy and have a “floury taste”
Typically, if your pot pie is watery, it wasn’t baked long enough.
How to Store this Recipe for Chicken Pot Pie Casserole
REFRIGERATOR: Store in the fridge for up to three days in an airtight container. (Note, the biscuits are going to be a bit softer than straight out of the oven. You may want to remove the biscuits and crisp them up while you heat the leftovers in the microwave.)
FREEZER: This casserole makes a great make-ahead meal. Just cover it and freeze it before you bake it! Bake it right from the freezer! You can freeze it for up to 3 months.
