How to make Chicken Pot Pie with Cheesy Drop Biscuits

I love making a classic Chicken Pot Pie.

  1. Melt the butter; add the onion, carrot, celery, garlic, chipotles, oregano, cumin, and salt. Cook and stir. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir and cook.
  2. Stir in the broth and cream; boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook until thickened.
  3. Add in the chicken, peas, corn, and lime juice, and stir; then taste and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Transfer the filling to a 13×9-inch baking dish and place the baking dish on a baking sheet.
  5. For the biscuits, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pepper. Stir in the shredded cheese. Add the butter and use your hands to gently mix it all together, working the butter into the flour with your fingers. Stir in the buttermilk and chives, mixing just until combined.
  6. Using two spoons, drop the biscuit dough onto the pot pie filling in eight large mounds.
  7. Bake the pot pie until the filling is bubbling and the biscuits are golden brown and puffed!
  8. Remove the pot pie from the oven and let it stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Breaking bread together

Time is what we need to live, love, shape our lives and schedules, and share our hospitality with others. It’s how we use our time that matters, since we’ve all been given the same amount in each day.

Recently, our friends were housebound, so my neighbor and I asked if we could bring dinner to them? We divided up the courses, and showed up with a pot pie to share with this dear family.

Breaking bread together doesn’t always mean it has to be shared in your home. You can bring a meal with you, and bless another family! And sometimes it is inspiring to put a new twist to the way that we serve a meal by including an attractive dinner board!

So a big thanks to Kelly Senyei and her new Secret Ingredient Cookbook for this comforting, delicious recipe today!

  • ½ cup diced celery
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1-2 tablespoons finely chopped chipotles in adobo sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 ½ cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 cups cooked, shredded rotisserie chicken (1 large chicken)
  • 1 ½ cups frozen peas
  • 1 ½ cups frozen corn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

For the biscuit crust:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 tablespoons 3/4 stick cold unsalted butter, cubed

Instructions

MAKE THE FILLING:

  • Melt the butter in a large, heavy-bottomed stockpot or Dutch oven set over medium-low heat. Add the onion, carrot, celery, garlic, chipotles, oregano, cumin, and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.
  • Stir in the broth and cream, scraping up any brown bits from the bottom of the pot. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook until thickened slightly, about 3 minutes.
  • Stir in the chicken, peas, corn, and lime juice, then taste and season with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer the filling to a 13x9-inch baking dish and place the baking dish on a baking sheet.

MAKE THE BISCUITS:

  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pepper. Stir in the shredded cheese. Add the butter, and use your hands to gently mix it all together, working the butter into the flour with your fingers. Stir in the buttermilk and chives, mixing just until combined.
  • Using two spoons, drop the biscuit dough onto the pot pie filling in eight large mounds. Bake the pot pie until the filling is bubbling and the biscuits are golden brown and puffed, 30-35 minutes.
  • Remove the pot pie from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
