Equipment

Notes

  • Make sure the biscuits are sitting on top, not pressed into the casserole, so they cook evenly and are able to rise. The biscuits will get nice and golden brown on top, but keep in mind that the part that's touching the casserole will remain a bit softer, almost like the texture of a dumpling. This is exactly how it's supposed to be! If you prefer a crisp biscuit all the way around, just bake the biscuits separately on a baking sheet, then add them to the casserole.
  • If you're serving this at a dinner party or for something a little fancy, feel free to transfer the pot pie filling to individual ramekins and then add a biscuit to each serving and bake.
  • If you'd prefer the biscuits to be in bite-sized pieces across the casserole, as opposed to large biscuits, just use clean kitchen shears to cut the biscuits into 1-inch cubes and distribute them in an even layer across the chicken pot pie filling before baking.
  • If you don't have a large sauté pan like mine that can go from the stovetop to the oven, feel free to transfer the chicken mixture to a 9x13 baking dish and then add the biscuits and bake! You could also use any oven safe dish of similar size to a 9x13 inch casserole dish.
