Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie Casserole
This cheesy version of Chicken Pot Pie serves up chicken in a gravy mixture with carrots, peas, and corn. Compared to my other Chicken Pot Pie Casserole recipe, this version features a buttery flaky topping! The store bought biscuits and rotisserie chicken speeds up the recipe, and keeps you from spending too much time in the kitchen.
This pot pie is perfect: quick, easy, and delicious. Oh, yes and it’s loaded with cheese!
The options to switch up this recipe are endless. It’s a great meal if you have veggies and meat to use up. Leftover turkey from the upcoming holiday will work just as well, too. You can add mushrooms to pot pie.
The seasonings are also something you can play with– I used thyme, bay leaves, salt, and pepper But rosemary, or a pinch of celery seed works too.
Can you use chicken breast or thighs instead?
Any type of shredded chicken or chopped cooked chicken will work in this recipe. If your family prefers all white meat, feel free to use chopped or shredded chicken breasts. If your family prefers dark meat, chicken thighs would be a good alternative.
Can You Freeze This Pot Pie?
Yes! This easy pot pie recipe makes a great freezer meal, sure to make your future self very happy.
While you can freeze this either baked or unbaked, the unbaked dish promises more cooking success. Freezing a baked crust is likely to turn into a soggy crust once you reheat it because ice crystals leave moisture in the crust.
So if you are making this ahead of time to freeze and eat later on, just follow the instructions to prepare it, but cover it and place it in the freezer instead of cooking it.
When it’s time to eat:
- thaw the casserole in the fridge overnight,
- then proceed to bake according to the recipe card.
