Chicken Potpie Casserole Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 4 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 jar (2 ounces) diced pimientos, drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 2/3 cup 2% milk


  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large saucepan, heat butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms, carrots and onion; cook and stir until tender.
  • 2. Stir in flour until blended; gradually stir in broth and milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in chicken, peas, pimientos and salt; heat through. Transfer to a greased 11x7-in. baking dish.
  • 3. For topping, in a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cream of tartar. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk; stir just until moistened.
  • 4. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 8-10 times. Pat or roll dough to 1/2-in. thickness; cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place over chicken mixture. Bake, uncovered, 15-20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown. Yield: 8 servings.

"This was not bad but in no way does it give you 8 servings. The 2 of us had it 2 nights in a row. I swapped out the 2% milk for 3/4 cup half and half and 1/4 cup of white wine and added 1/4 tsp black pepper and 1 clove of minced garlic."

"My favorite part of this recipe is that it's all home made. Right down to the biscuits. TY for sharing it. I hate when someone calls it a recipe, and all you do is open boxes and cans. I can do that all by myself ! Lol And we don't eat the preservatives or added salts and sugars and dyes."

"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."

"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."

"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 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."

"I made some revisions though. Added a 1# bag of peas and carrots, 8 oz of mushrooms, diced two medium potatoes and cooked all with the butter. I added a small amount more, once liquid was hot I scooped some liquid out of pot into a mug, enough to mix with a 1/4 cup of flour, then added back to the pot to thicken the mix, cooked some more before transferring to the baking dish with biscuits. I added black pepper too, plan to try using some poultry seasoning next time, or some other seasoning to give it more flavor. Maybe add some fresh minced garlic next time."
