I always have leftover chicken broth on hand and use it for many things, including this comforting family favorite. You can bake your own biscuits, like I do, or buy them at the store. I like to bake extra biscuits to eat with butter and jam. —Liliane Jahnke, Cypress, Texas

"Was a rainy, windy, cool day today, so thought I would try this recipe. So glad I did!! Hubby and I both had sconds, it was so good. Will definitely be making this again. Neither of us like mushrooms, and I didn't have the pimientos, so I didn't use them. I only used 4 Tablespoons of butter to cook the veggies in and I added chopped celery. Otherwise followed the recipe."

"I made quite a few tweaks to this recipe. I used carrots, onion, celery and broccoli since I needed to use those up. I used homemade chicken bone broth and added some "Better than Bouillon" for more flavor instead of salt. I made a bit more sauce than it initially made. I also used a drop biscuit recipe with Parmesan cheese. Loved it."

"Super recipe....thanks to the person who said to get the dish bubbly first, then drop the biscuits, so they are not raw on the bottom. I made "drop" biscuits, and added 2 potatoes, and not so many mushrooms....and a little more broth mixture, so it would not be dry. I will be making this again!"

"made this a couple of nights ago and although the flavor was good there wasn't nearly enough gravy. it really was very dry. I made my own biscuits as well and they are great but think I may have put too many biscuits covering the top which the gravy underneath of course would sop up causing the liquid to do a disappearing act :(

question: why 1st butter ingred is cubed. if you're going to be putting it in a saucepan then adding the veg, no need to cube (?)
input: I associate chicken pot pie with potatoes in the mixture and here there is none. I added a cup of frozen cut up steak fries because I was out of raw potatoes.
also, my MIL always had pimiento's in her pantry I never new why and I don't buy them as I see no need. maybe they add color and flavor but that ingred I didn't use."

"Used my own drop biscuit recipe for the topping and turkey in place of chicken. Perfect comfort food on a snowy day."

"Absolutely delicious and perfect as is regarding ingredients. I used organic as much as possible such as flour, chicken, peas, carrots, broth, etc. So delicious and healthy. Don't know why anyone would use canned cream of chicken soup, or Bisquick, which contain many preservatives and additives. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing."

"I make a similar, but easier version. I heat the broth in a pot then heat the milk in a jar in the microwave & add the flour to the milk & shake vigorously. slowly whisk into the broth. cook til boiling & cook 2 min longer. Add 2 cups of cubed, cooked potatoes, I can of carrots & peas, 2 cups of cut up cooked chicken, 1/2 tea poultry seasoning & a can of cream of chicken soup. cook on med 10 min. pour into casserole dish & bake at 350 til bubbling. then arrange biscuits from a tube on top of casserole. Casserole must be bubbling or the biscuits will be doughy on the bottoms. bake til biscuits are browned."
