Chicken Pot Pie Variations
I stuck to traditional pot pie ingredients here, with peas and carrots as the veggies and minimal seasoning but you can easily change this according to your preference. A few suggestions:
Change up the meat. Replace the chicken with turkey – this is great for Thanksgiving leftover turkey! You can also use other cuts of chicken or turkey.
Change up the vegetables. We love peas and carrots but you can also use mixed veggies or your favorites. Corn, green beans, and broccoli make great additions! I use frozen veggies but you can also use fresh veggies if you want to, I suggest steaming them before adding them to the chicken pot pie mixture.
Change up the sauce. Use cream of chicken soup instead of flour and milk for an extra creamy sauce. If you want a cheese sauce, canned cheese soup is also a great option!
Change up the Biscuits. I use canned biscuits to make my life easier but you can change them out for homemade biscuits, buttermilk biscuits or garlic cheddar biscuits are great easy biscuits recipes that you can use.
Can I use other types of chicken?
While I find ground chicken is the easiest for this recipe, you can also use chicken breasts or other boneless, skinless cuts of chicken.
You can also use leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken if you have it and are looking for an easy leftover chicken dinner recipe.
If you are using already cooked chicken like shredded chicken instead of cooking the chicken in a skillet you can jus reheat it in the skillet and add the other ingredients.
Can I Freeze Chicken Biscuit Pot Pie?
One of the reasons I LOVE this Chicken Biscuit Pot Pie is because I can make it ahead! I often make a double or triple batch so that I always have at least one or two in the freezer, for busy nights.
To freeze, just prepare the chicken mixture according to the instructions. Then transfer to a freezer-safe container and freeze.
When you’re ready to enjoy it for dinner, allow the chicken mixture to thaw and then continue following the instructions. I like to heat the chicken mixture a bit before adding it to the pan, so the biscuits aren’t done first.
What To Serve with Chicken Pot Pie
For us, chicken pot pie is a meal in itself. If you are looking for additional items to feed everyone I suggest pairing it with a salad. If you are looking for tasty salad recipes and homemade dressing check out some of our favorites.
We love making Olive Garden Salad, and strawberry spinach salad, but you can make any salad and dressing. I like making homemade salad dressings and homemade Olive Garden salad dressing, Poppyseed salad dressing, and Garlic Lime Vinaigrette
