Easy Chicken Pot Pie Casserole Recipe

I’ll never forget Chicken Pot Pie night in my house growing up. We usually had two different kinds of chicken pot pie: the kind that was like chicken and dumplings but wasn’t soup or the kind that was an actual pie filled with chicken pot pie filling. Those were two of my favorite meals growing up; can you guess why?

(If you said I loved the dumplings and the pie crust, you’d be right. #carbloveralways)

I’ve been making chicken pot pie or some version of chicken and dumplings for years now and it’s one of my husbands favorite meals. There’s just something so comforting about a creamy chicken pot pie filling, isn’t there?

  • It has a no-cook chicken pot pie filling!
  • My Creamy Chicken Pot Pie Casserole with biscuits starts with rotisserie chicken so it’s EASY!!
  • It reminds me of a traditional chicken pot pie without the work of making pie crust. Every bite is full of flavor, from the vegetables to the homemade biscuits.

Ingredients Needed

You don’t need to brown chicken or make a roux: this recipe calls for just a few ingredients you stir up in a bowl and dump in your casserole dish.

  • Cream of Chicken Soup – you could also use cream of mushroom or potato. It makes a nice and thick sauce without having to cook flour and butter to make a roux; it’s all done for you.
  • Rotisserie Chicken – or leftover chicken or even leftover turkey! If you don’t have easy access to a rotisserie chicken, feel free to use leftover shredded chicken from a meal prep day or even leftover oven baked chicken.
  • Challenge Cream Cheese – I use Challenge Cream Cheese whenever I make this casserole (or any no-bake dessert) because their cream cheese is creamier straight out of the refrigerator than the other brands. It also tastes better and it’s made right; the old-fashioned way, from the freshest milk from happy cows.
  • Frozen Vegetables – I used a bag of frozen mixed vegetables but you can use any kind, just be sure to thaw them.
  • Butter – I use Challenge Butter. Challenge is our family favorite (my dad won’t even buy another brand!) and I’ve been eating it my entire life. Challenge is only dairy product company that controls the whole process when it comes to making its butter, from milking the cows to transporting milk, to making butter to packaging. And it tastes amazing!
  • Flour – I use all purpose flour for these biscuits. Learn how to substitute self-rising flour.
  • Baking Powder – Make the biscuits nice and fluffy.
  • Buttermilk – Love the tang from the buttermilk!

How to make biscuits for chicken pot pie

I love making my own homemade biscuits. By making them from scratch I can use real butter and buttermilk so the end result is a fluffy and light biscuit.

It’s really simple. I know that using a mix is easy but I promise homemade biscuits are just as easy and taste even better. Just make sure to use cold ingredients and a light touch when making biscuit dough.

  1. Start by mixing your dry ingredients. Then cut-in cold Challenge Butter (unsalted) that’s diced. When I say cut-in I mean use a fork or pastry cutter to disperse the butter through the dry ingredients. (Curious about cooking terms? Read my glossary!)
  2. Stir in your buttermilk with a light touch, meaning that you stop when the mixture just comes together.
  3. Use your hands to gently finish the process.
  4. Drop biscuit pieces on top of the chicken casserole in the dish.
  5. Bake until the biscuits are golden brown!

Recipe Notes

  • You can use cream of mushroom soup if you prefer. Regular or “healthier” soup versions may be used.
  • Pick any mixed vegetable combination you like; I used carrots/peas/green beans/corn/lima beans but you can use any mix you want.
  • You can also use leftover shredded chicken or any leftover chicken, sliced into small pieces.
  • Make your own buttermilk by adding 1/4 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice to measuring cup and filling to 1/2 cup with milk. Let it sit for 5 minutes and you have buttermilk.
  • You can also use a biscuit mix for this recipe but I prefer homemade so I can use real butter.

  1. My family of four loved this recipe! We will definitely make it again. Very easy to make and super yummy! Thanks Dorothy!

  2. Just made this using leftover Thanksgiving turkey. I used cream of mushroom soup. It was very good. Easy to follow recipe and Dorothy always provides great tips. Will definitely make again.

  3. I made this last night and it was so very nice and easy. Being in Australia, the quantities and ingredients are a little different but I used a whole bbq chicken (chopped) 250g of cream cheese, 1 can of soup ( 420g) a lot of vegies, including sun dried tomatoes, a red chilli and cooked onions and a couple of teaspoons of italian seasoning and put it into individual dishes and covered with puff pastry. Baked 170° f.f for about 30 minutes. It turned out perfect and enough fo 4 big serves.

  4. So I didn’t have cream of anything soup in the house and made a roux than added chicken broth and this still turned out awesome! Glad I found this, never made homemade biscuits before! Turned out awesome!
