How do you make chicken pot pie in a skillet?
I love baking in a cast iron skillet, it really does add so much flavour to whatever you’re cooking. This is why I adore my Kentucky Apple Skillet Cake dessert recipe so much!
If you haven’t baked a cast iron skillet recipe yet, this is a great one to start with. Yet perhaps you’ve already tried this Stuffed Tuscan Chicken?
I will note that if you don’t have have a pan that can go in the oven, such as this one, you can still make this recipe. Simply transfer the filling to a pie dish before adding the biscuit dough.
The beauty of this one-dish skillet dinner is that it doesn’t take the better part of an afternoon to make it. Streamlining the process by a ton, I include using not only refrigerator buttermilk biscuit dough as the crust topping, but you can use rotisserie chicken as well to save a step.
This recipe makes excellent use of chicken leftovers. If not, cooking up and shredding chicken would be required. You cook, bake and serve right from one skillet!
How do you make chicken pot pie with biscuits on top?
The creamy filling comes together quickly in a skillet. Then, instead of getting transferred to a pie pan to bake, it’s topped with a store-bought crust and baked right in the skillet. That’s where the ‘easy’ comes in.
It’s a lovely combination between the creamy pot pie willing and the flaky biscuit dough cooked on top. You could take this recipe one step further and lightly egg wash the biscuits before baking. It’ll help the crust form that perfect golden brown colour that is irresistible.
What do you put in a chicken pot pie?
Including seasoning for taste, this recipe take just 5 ingredients to WOW. I use frozen mixed vegetables and a can of cream of chicken soup, so you can see it’s a simple recipe with few steps to complete.
I’d pair this recipe with a Garden Fresh Pasta Salad, and you have one fantastic meal!
