This simple recipe gives rise to a golden, cakelike crust that won rave reviews at the tasting table. Try replacing a portion of the chicken with an equal amount of frozen, thawed vegetables, or stir a cup of shredded cheese into the soup mixture. We especially enjoyed the pie with broccoli and Cheddar cheese.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place chopped chicken in a lightly greased 12- x 8-inch baking dish. Whisk together soup, broth, and cornstarch; pour mixture evenly over chicken.

Step 2

Whisk together flour, buttermilk, and butter; spoon batter evenly over chicken mixture.

Step 3

Bake at 400° for 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

Our picky kids love this, but I found that the crust is actually too thick for us. I add 50% more chicken, add half a bag of frozen veggies (I usually put it in a bigger casserole dish since there's 7 of us), and a bit of herb du provence for extra flavor. Also, I use the low fat cream of chicken to cut calories :)

This is FABULOUS! I doubled the topping and added mixed veggies to the chicken. Will definitely make again.

So easy and so good, whether you make it exactly by the recipe or if you add veggies and cheese! The topping really makes it! For my variation, I have added a little garlic powder and shredded cheddar to the topping and that is great, too! This is one to make over and over!

I made only the crust since I don't use the canned cream soups and topped my personal recipe pie. It's very good, and the family, especially my husband's teenager, loved it. So much so that I used the topping again for another meal, adding cheddar cheese and topping leftover Irish Stew to make a beef pot pie. Adding cheese or herbs makes the possibilities endless! Definitely a keeper...

So easy and so good! Comes out perfect everytime and it's a cinch to prepare. I always have the ingredients on hand to fix this (keep shredded rotesserie chicken in the freezer) as it's a sure quick and easy dish to prepare last minute.

Wow! This was delicious and SO easy. I used the veggie variation, so it was a whole meal in one dish. I loved the taste of the buttermilk biscuit topping too!

This dish is such a hit with my family that I made it twice in one week for dinner. I add a cup of frozen mixed vegetables for variety and color. Don't forget to use self-rising flour for fluffy biscuits (or add 1 1/4 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt to 1 c. regular flour). A meal-in-one!
