Instructions Checklist
  • Make filling: Warm oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery and bell pepper and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 7 minutes. Add flour and stir for 1 minute. Pour in broth and bring to a boil, scraping browned bits from bottom of skillet, until mixture is thick and creamy.

  • Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in milk. Add chicken and cook, stirring, until firm and opaque, about 7 minutes. Stir in peas and carrots. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into a 2-quart baking dish.

  • Make topping: Preheat oven to 425°F. In a food processor, pulse flour, baking powder and salt. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. With processor on, add oil and 1 cup milk. Process just until dough forms a ball. Turn out onto floured work surface; knead for 10 seconds. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Use a 2-inch cookie cutter to form 16 biscuits. Place biscuits on top of filling and brush with remaining milk.

  • Bake pot pie until filling is bubbling and biscuits are lightly browned on top, about 25 minutes. Serve hot.
