Easy Chicken Pot Pie

I will start by saying this recipe is not gluten free.

I have made this many times over the last few years and I have several pictures of it. I kept meaning to post it, but I never got it done. I thought now would be a good time since Thanksgiving is this week and everyone will have lots of leftover turkey. However, I will not be making it unless I can come up with a gluten free version.

This recipe calls for chicken, but turkey also works well.

This recipe came from a friend of mine. She has brought it to many church dinners. I finally got the recipe from her a few years ago and my family loves it when I make it.

This recipe is a quick pot pie though. I enjoy and have made the kind that is a lot more detailed. The kind where you cook a whole chicken, use the broth, make the crust from scratch, etc. Those are great, but I don’t always have the time to make that kind. I like this version because I can make it anytime. It is so easy!

This recipe does contain Bisquick. I usually do not like Bisquick. I do not like it for biscuits, pancakes, or just about anything else. I know many of you probably like it, but I really don’t. However, I have two recipes that I keep it on hand for and this is one of them. It is what makes this recipe so easy.

  1. It’d be easy to modify this recipe for the freezer too. I do that with tons of my casserole recipes so I can make them in an 8×8 which feeds my family. Then I freeze the second casserole to use later.

    For this one, simply use the southern style frozen hash browns (the small diced ones) instead of fresh potatoes. (Fresh potatoes will turn black in the freezer if you don’t cook them first.)

    You’ll 1/2 the topping part of the casserole when you make each version as that part wouldn’t freeze well.

    I also take a filling like this and simply bake it for about 30 minutes until hot and bubbly and then top it with some canned biscuits. Pop it back in the oven til the biscuits are done and then serve.

    We’re not having turkey for Thanksgiving because I’m just not a huge fan. Instead we pick a theme and do it “all out”. (This year it’s Italian.) However, I couldn’t pass up turkeys at only 40 cents a pound so I just did up forty pounds of turkey in various casseroles to fill up my freezer for the winter. Yummy!!!!

  2. I make Chicken Pot Pie gluten free. I make a chicken flavored white sauce using a gluten free flour and Better Than Bouillon, chicken flavored. For the biscuit topping I make my own biscuits for myself and bake separately. For my husband, I buy frozen English muffins which are gluten free, cut in half and toast. Instead of baking the whole dish in the oven, I just make the chicken stew on the stove and spoon it over the biscuits. It’s not exactly the same, but it’s close enough and my husband has a dish he otherwise wouldn’t be able to eat. Also, I always add a few drops of yellow food coloring to the white sauce to make it look more like chicken.

  3. Yum, this one looks like a keeper!


  4. I love chicken pot pie and this looks so comforting!

  5. This looks delicious! I’m sure with a little tinkering (or maybe buns on top instead), you could easily make this GF =D.

  6. Made this for dinner tonite, very yummy! My family loved it!
    Will be adding this recipe to my menu plan! thanks for the great recipes

  7. beingjennifer says

    Is there a recipe for the bisquick type stuff? I don’t have bisquick on hand. Otherwise it sounds great!

    • I just used my grandma’s pie crust recipe. My husband and I both love the taste. For an 8×8 pan:
      In a bowl mix:
      1 1/2 cup flour
      1 tsp sugar
      1/2 tsp salt
      Combine in measuring cup:
      1/2 cup oil
      2 Tablespoons cold milk.
      Whip until cloudy then pour over flour mixture and blend with hands.

  8. Just made this recipe tonight and very happy with the results. Will definitely make again and again. Thanks!!!!

  9. I cooked Darlene’s Chicken Pot Pie last night and it was delicious! My husband and I had enough for last night, tonight and I froze another meal of it to have later this month. I used a little bit of Louisiana Hot sauce in my helping to kick it up a notch. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
