Reviews for Chicken Potpie Casserole
"This is delicious! I made it last week and again yesterday! I make my own chicken stock, so herbs and seasoning go in there. I also always salt and pepper my onions and other vegetables that I slightly caramelize. I'd say I quadruple the recipe, I knew we'd love it that much! Leftovers are phenomenal too. I'm not big on mushrooms and since I'm the cook, haha, I left them out. I added potatoes, and this last time, my husband requested celery and corn also. I'd say any veggie you like would be a good addition! Other than that, I followed the recipe. Not making the biscuits as written, at least once, would be a shame, because they're delicious! If you make sure they're getting brown on top, they won't be underdone on the bottom or in the middle. All they are, are a baking powder biscuit. Creamed soups have MSG in them, bisquick or canned biscuits have so many preservatives, so why not make your own? This recipe is truly fabulous! Thank you Liliane!"
"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."
"very tasty! I substituted mushrooms, pimentos and peas for 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables."
"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."
"EX!!!!! Great recipe with no changes......"
