  • 1 large Russet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 1 large carrot, sliced into half moons
  • 1 large celery stalk, sliced into half moons
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium sweet onion, diced
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced or grated
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 lb shredded cooked chicken (see notes)
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 16-oz. can refrigerated biscuits


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place the potato, carrots, and celery in a large pot. Fill with water to cover and bring to a soft boil, cooking for 10 minutes or until you can pierce through the potatoes with a fork easily. Drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a cast iron or other large deep skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook 3-4 minutes until the onion is soft. Whisk in the flour and let cook for a minute. Add in the milk and chicken broth, whisking so no lumps remain. Reduce heat to medium low. Season the mixture with salt, pepper, and thyme, and let thicken for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the cooked vegetables, chicken, peas, and corn to the skillet and stir to coat evenly. Remove from heat

While the vegetables and sauce are cooking, put the biscuits on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes to cook the bottom. Remove and top the chicken pot pie mixture with the half-cooked biscuits and cook for a further 6-8 minutes or until the biscuit tops are deep golden brown.

Serve hot!


This was fantastic. A simple way to have pot pie without fussing over actual crusts.

  1. I know I’ve asked this before, but what’s your recipe for making homemade chicken/turkey stock?

    When I made yours it was the best I’d ever had, but I can’t seem to find it anymore! 😦


  2. I don’t really know if I have the same method from years ago. But nowadays, here’s what I do. Preheat the oven to 300 and put this stuff in a big pot:

    4 raw chicken thighs
    2 carrots, snapped in half
    2 celery stalks, snapped in half
    1 large yellow or sweet onion, quartered
    2 cloves garlic, sliced in half
    leftover fresh parsley or thyme or both
    handful of peppercorns

    Cover with water. Bring to a boil. Skim off any gunk. Put in the preheated oven for a few hours. Strain into a large container with a lid and put it in the refrigerator overnight. (Take the meat off the chicken bones and use it for soup or chilaquiles or something else good!) Next day take off any really excess fat that congealed on the top, then store in smaller containers. You can freeze it if you need to, but I put mine in the refrigerator and just use it for two weeks without freezing. But whatever works for your needs!
