My family loves traditional chicken pot pie, but sometimes I just don’t want to fuss with homemade pie crust, making a roux, and cutting all those veggies. This easy Chicken Pot Pie Casserole is pot pie for a weeknight dinner! It’s one of my favorite comfort foods.

First, it’s made with rotisserie chicken. This means it’s super quick and easy to put together. Simply shred the meat for the chicken pot pie filling and you’re good to go.

(I love dinners made with rotisserie chicken because it lets me get a few meals from a single bird—serve it with mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus the first night and if you still have some left, use it to make Chicken Divan or Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. Total weeknight win!)

Next, the veggies. I use a frozen mixed veggie blend that has carrots, corn, green beans, and peas for my Chicken Pot Pie Casserole. Frozen vegetables are just as healthy as fresh—sometimes even healthier since they’re frozen at the peak of freshness, preserving all of their vitamins and nutrients!—and they save you so much prep time.

Instead of using butter, flour, milk, onion, and garlic to make a creamy sauce, cream of chicken soup is an easy shortcut that helps you get dinner on the table faster without compromising flavor.

And then there’s no pie crust either—we use biscuits instead in this Chicken Pot Pie Casserole! No one will miss the crust when you have soft, pillowy biscuits to sop up all that creamy goodness.

steps to make chicken pot pie casserole

How to Make Chicken Pot Pie Casserole

1. Prepare

Preheat your oven to 400ºF.

2. Cook the Vegetables

Melt the butter in a large skillet set over medium heat. Add the frozen vegetables to the melted butter and cook for 5 to 7 minutes. 

3. Make the Sauce

Add the condensed cream of chicken soup and 1 cup of chicken stock. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then season to taste. 

4. Finish the Filling

Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the chicken and parsley. If the sauce is too thick, add a little more stock. Pour the filling mixture into a 9×13 baking dish.

5. Pre-Bake the Biscuits

On a parchment-lined sheet pan, “pre-bake” the biscuits for half their recommended cooking time. This will keep them from getting soggy in the casserole. 

6. Bake

Place the biscuits upside down into the casserole dish over the chicken mixture and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly and the biscuits are golden brown.

FAQs

What goes with Chicken Pot Pie Casserole?

I like to serve this casserole with a simple green salad on the side since it’s pretty much a one-dish dinner with protein, veggies, and carbs. If your family isn’t into salads, steamed broccoli is a great side dish, too!

What is the sauce made of in chicken pot pie?

The sauce is usually made with a roux of flour and butter, and then milk is added to create a thick and creamy sauce. In this Chicken Pot Pie Casserole, we skip the roux and used condensed cream of chicken soup as a shortcut!

Why is it called a chicken pot pie?

The name “pot pie” comes from the fact that the dish is traditionally baked in a pot, with pastry crust lining the bottom and top.

Can you freeze chicken pot pie casserole?

You can freeze this casserole for up to 3 months. Thaw it overnight in the fridge and then reheat according to the instructions above.

    The recipe is really good. My only thing is you should say at the beginning to to pre-cook the biscuits while you’re making the filling. The biscuits call for a lesser temperature. Besides that, all else is good
