Hearty Chicken Pot Pie

Yield 6 servings


  • Biscuits:
  • 1/4 cup warm water (100° to 110°F)
  • 1 envelope Fleischmann's® Active Dry Yeast
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Argo® Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • Filling:
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cups cooked, diced chicken
  • 16 ounces frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands Medium Grind Black Pepper
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 3 tablespoons Argo® Corn Starch

How to Make It

  1. To make Biscuits: COMBINE warm water and yeast in a small bowl. Set aside to soften. Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Cut in shortening using a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add yeast mixture to dry ingredients; stir in buttermilk. Place dough on a lightly floured surface.

    KNEAD 10 to 15 times; form into a ball. Pat dough to 3/4-inch thickness. Cut 10 to 12 biscuits using a 2-inch biscuit cutter (or use a straight sided drinking glass); place on ungreased baking sheet. Cover.

    LET RISE in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size (about 30 minutes). Make filling while dough is rising.

    To make Filling: MELT 2 tablespoons butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook about 5 minutes, until soft. Stir in chicken, vegetables, broth, garlic salt and pepper. Bring to a boil.

    COMBINE milk and corn starch in a small bowl. Stir into chicken mixture. Stirring constantly, bring mixture to a boil. Boil 1 minute. Spoon chicken mixture into a 2- or 3-quart casserole.

    TOP with the risen biscuits. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter and drizzle over biscuits. Place casserole on baking sheet (to catch any boil-overs in the oven).

    BAKE in 425°F preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until filling is bubbly and biscuits are lightly browned.
