How To Make Chicken Pot Pie – Step by Step
For The Buttermilk Biscuits
For The Chicken Filling
The options to switch up this chicken pot pie 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 In Place Of Rotisserie Chicken?
Any type of shredded 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 can be prepared and frozen in advance, 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 baking according to the recipe card.
