  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Butter a 2 quart casserole dish.
  2. In a large saucepan, saute chopped onion in the butter. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute. Add chicken broth and milk. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Cook for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add frozen peas and carrots and cooked chicken. Pour into buttered 2 quart casserole dish.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together 2 cups flour, baking powder, and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Cut in shortening until mixture is crumbly. Stir in milk just until dough is moistened, then drop by spoonfuls onto chicken mixture.
  4. Bake at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) for 12 to 15 minutes, or until biscuits are golden brown, and cooked on the bottom. This tends to bubble over so I place a piece of aluminum foil under the pan to catch the drips.

I gave this recipe 4 stars but with a few changes it is a 5. I am the kitchen manager for a rescue mission and have to feed alot of people on a small budget. And this dish is definetly a low cost meal that delivers big results. Here are the changes I made - first I sauteed together chopped onions, celery & carrots - which is called a mirepoix. Then I added the flour and then milk with some chicken stock. To this I added additional seasoning - garlic powder, thyme, rosemary, and sage. Then I added canned vegetables and canned chicken. Of course fresh would be better - but I use what comes in the back door - so we get alot of canned items. The consistency is like thick gravy. Then I poured this mixture into my pans. I have a bakery mix that is much like Bisquick I used to make the biscuit mixture. In reading the other reviews I noticed that the same issue kept coming up - the biscuits were done on top but still gooey/runny on the bottom. So I made my biscuit mixture a little on the "sloppy" side - not runny like pancake batter - and not doughy like biscuit dough - but somewhere in the middle- "gloppy". Then I spooned the biscuit batter on top of the chicken mixture in spoonfuls that left about a inch space around the "glop" as the glop will rise and expand as it cooks. It is important to leave a little room around your glops as this allows the biscuits to cook through. I got sloppy with my glops on the last pan and put them too close together and they didn't cook all the way th

As an apple crumble is to an apple pie, this recipe is to a pot pie. Unfortunately, this is a little on the bland side, although still enjoyable enough to try again with variations. I like that it tastes like a pot pie, but the biscuit mix as written isn't very exciting. Additionally, the ingredients should list 1/2 an onion as a whole onion ends up being more than either the carrots or peas! I like the idea of this, but I'm going to look for a different biscuit recipe and a chicken potpie filling to find how to make this better.

This recipe is excellent and was just what I was looking for -- I had no wish to use "whack-em-on-the-counter" biscuits like so many other recipes call for, and I didn't want to use pie dough. For those folks who had problems with the biscuits not being cooked on the bottom: prepare the biscuit dough BEFORE you make the chicken mixture, and be sure to preheat the oven so it's ready as soon as the chicken mixture is poured into the casserole dish and the biscuit dough is QUICKLY spooned on top. The point of putting the biscuit dough on the HOT chicken mixture is to start cooking the biscuits immediately, so they don't get soggy on the bottom. This is why dumplings go into HOT stew, and cobbler dough goes onto HOT cooked fruit.

We love this recipe! It's a wonderful way to use up leftover chicken. I use frozen peas, but slice my own carrots and cook them for 5 min. first before adding them to the chicken mixture. To cut down on preparation time, I used frozen biscuits. I baked them on a separate pan at 375 degrees for only five minutes and then put them on the hot chicken mixture and baked at 425 degrees for 12 minutes. Everything was perfect! If you feel the biscuits are getting a little too brown, cover the dish with aluminum foil. I served this with a mixed greens salad. Fast, easy, and comforting with ingredients one generally has on hand.

Definitely a go-to recipe for leftover chicken. I do make some changes, though: -I times it by 1.5 (x2 would be fine, too) and put it in a 13x9 dish -I use 1/2 butter, 1/2 olive oil (but I don't think you need to use as much as the recipe suggests) -I add thyme, sage, rosemary, and use white pepper vs. black, and next time I'll try garlic like one reviewer suggested. -I use frozen mixed veggies. -I use my own Betty Crocker baking powder biscuit recipe, cut out, place on top, and bake @ 375 for 40 minutes--comes out perfect every time.

This was pretty good. I think the temp of the oven was too high though. 450 over browned the biscuits on top and left them slightly gooey on bottom. I had to put back in the oven after the suggested amount of time. Would probably lower the temp to 350 and bake longer.

This is the best chicken pie recipe I have ever tried. I substitute Bisquick for the topping (for time's sake). I have also topped it with a pie crust instead of the biscuits. It tastes great both ways.

Simple and good. I used leftover turkey and added poultry seasoning. Baked at 450F for 15 minutes, then left the mixture for another 15 minutes in the hot oven with the oven off and the door open before serving. The biscuits were cooked through. Will double the recipe next time.
