Chicken Pot Pie Variations and Tips
Streamlining the process by a ton, I include using not only refrigerator buttermilk biscuit dough as the top crust. It’s more dense and has more shape versus puff pastry for instance.
I also like to use rotisserie chicken as well to save a step. This is a great recipe for when you already have cooked chicken on hand, to utilize leftover chicken. You could use cooked and cubed chicken breasts.
I like to use a can of cream of chicken soup for this recipe, it makes this ultimate comfort food taste like heaven. When using chicken broth (or chicken stock) instead, it will be less creamy and rich. It is an option though, to save calories.
You can also use the same process and make individual homemade chicken pot pies as well.
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.

Chicken Pot Pie leftovers can be stored in an airtight container and refrigerated for up to 5 days. This is a popular recipe for taking for lunch the next day.
How to reheat chicken pot pie:
There are a few options to reheating room temperature or cold leftovers, and the best way is what is most convenient for you. There is no best way.
To reheat chicken pot pie, you can do so in a conventional oven or toaster oven, and heat until warmed all the way through. Cover the whole pie with aluminum foil to prevent the top from drying out. I like to use medium heat.
You could also reheat leftover chicken pot pie by placing leftovers into a microwave-safe dish and cook until reheated. It’s best to cover the container with a wet paper towel to prevent the top crust from drying out and prevent soggy crust.
This is personally the best method for me, as it only takes a couple of minutes. While there are different methods, for me the best option is the fastest reheating process so I can enjoy my tasty chicken pot pie once again.
For better results always check often to prevent overcooking, yet make sure the internal temperature reads cooked.
What to Serve with Chicken Pot Pie:
I’d pair this creamy chicken pot pie recipe with a Garden Fresh Pasta Salad, simple green salad or spinach salad. Keep in mind you already have a ton of vegetables already in the dish like green beans, corn, and carrots. It is a complete meal on it’s own as a main course.
Other options for an easy side dish include: sliced baked sweet potatoes
