Hearty chicken pot pie topped with bacon cheddar biscuits instead of traditional pie crust

Growing up, I thought I hated pot pie. We would eat those mini frozen pot pies in the famous red box, and although I ate the filling no problem, I always left the crust. Fast forward to last summer when Dad and I visited Philadelphia for the weekend and ate dinner at City Tavern. I had my meal picked out when the server informed us that the special was turkey pot pie with puff pastry. For some reason, that was enough to convince me to get the special. But I don’t like pot pie. That dinner opened the gates to a pot pie obsession. I lost count how many times I’ve made pot pie. When my parents ask what do I want for dinner when I visit, often I reply pot pie. This Chicken Pot Pie Topped With Bacon Cheddar Biscuits is a modern twist on a retro classic, which is today’s #SundaySupper theme.

One of the main reasons I never liked pot pie was the crust. I have never been a fan of pie crust and opt for alternatives such as puff pastry. However, when I saw this biscuit-topped version in one of my magazines, I knew I had to try it. The original recipe made a creole-inspired filling, but I kept my traditional filling with chicken, carrots, peas, mushrooms, and potatoes then topped with the bacon cheddar biscuits.

It’s easier than you think. The biscuits are a quick mix of flour, butter, cheese, bacon, chives, and cream. No yeast, no rising, no wait time. Just mix, knead, roll, and cut. While the chicken filling is baking for the first 15 minutes, I was able to prepare the biscuits and have them ready when 15 minutes was up. How’s that for quick and easy?

Chicken Pot Pie Topped With Bacon Cheddar Biscuits is ultimate comfort food. Maybe that’s why I crave it so much. You can speed up the cooking process by using already-cooked chicken, whether it’s rotisserie chicken shredded up or leftover chicken from the night before. You can even skip peeling and cutting carrots if you use frozen carrots and peas.

Serves: 6-8 servings
Ingredients
Pot Pie
  • 2 chicken quarters*
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup carrots, peeled and cut into pieces
  • 16 ounces chicken stock
  • 1 cup potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy whipping cream or milk
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Biscuits
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut into tablespoons
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh chives, chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
Instructions
For the pot pie:
  1. Fill an extra large pot with water. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, add the chicken quarters and cover with a lid. Cook 20-30 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked through. Remove from the water. Let the chicken cool. Once it's cool enough to handle, shred the meat off of the bones, discarding skin and bones. Set aside shredded chicken.
  2. Preheat oven to 425F degrees. Have a casserole dish ready.
  3. In a Dutch oven or deep pot, melt the butter. Add the onions, garlic, and carrots and cook until onions and carrots start to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in the flour until flour is completely coated. Slowly whisk in the chicken stock. Bring to a boil.
  4. Once the stock is boiling, add the potatoes and peas. Cook until the potatoes are soft but not mushy, about 10-15 minutes (stir often because the potatoes will stick to the bottom). Stir in the shredded chicken then stir in the cream. Season with salt and pepper as needed. Remove from the heat and pour into the casserole dish. Bake for 15 minutes.
For the biscuits:
  1. While the filling is baking, make the biscuits. In a large bowl, combine the butter pieces and flour. Cut with a pastry cutter until the mixture is crumbly and looks like small pebbles. Add the cheese, bacon, chives, and cream, stirring until everything is moistened. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough lightly, about 3-4 times. Roll out the dough to 3/4-inch thickness. Using a 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter or glass, cut out roughly 12 biscuits (you may have to gather up the scraps and roll out again).
  2. When the filling is done baking, remove from the oven and top with the biscuits (if not all biscuits fit, you can put them on a separate cookie sheet). Bake another 25 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown and chicken filling is bubbly.
Notes
* You can use already-cooked chicken and skip step one.

  1. I like your first shot Carla and I am getting the taste for chicken after reading through your recipe. yum!

    • Well I am going to try this for dinner tonight. looks amazing. And I think my favorite part is I have everything to make this in my house (with a few modifications).

  2. Yum! I love pot pies with biscuit toppings. Cheddar Bacon? Genius!

  3. I’ve been told I need to make this. Immediately.

  4. You had me at bacon, Carla. I mean, a pot pie is nice and all, and I was thinking it would be a nice family meal . . . until I read bacon. Wow–that would elevate even the most humble pot pie into great things.

    Thanks!

  5. I would this and come back for seconds…I love a good pot pie! Yum…great job!

  6. I love pot pie, especially chicken, it sends me back to my grandmother´s house when I was a kid. Those biscuits sound amazing on their own too! I love this recipe Carla

  7. I am SO with you about the pie crust thing! When I had pot pies in the past, I would leave out the crust, pushing it to the side of my plate. I LOVE the idea of a biscuit topped pot pie though – crispy, flaky….perfect!!!!

  8. I would eat these biscuits on their own too, they sound so yummy. I have never been a huge pot pie fan either so maybe I need to give this recipe a shot.

  9. Happy #SS, twin. Your casserole looks amazing and those biscuits sound dreamy.

  10. Holy! That is one mean version of Chicken Pot Pie!

  11. City Tavern is such a fun restaurant! And the biscuits here are awesome! I am not a big crust fan.

  12. Looks so pretty! I’d have a hard time eating it because it’s so pretty. By the way, I love bacon, so I am definitely going to have to try this soon.

  13. Dyyyiiiing over those bacon cheddar biscuits!!!! They look like the perfect accompaniment to the filling portion of a pot pie ;)

  14. I love pot pies, and I do love the crust too, but those bacon cheddar biscuits have me drooling. And you need to stop that. Every time I come here I find myself drooling!

  15. Oh yum, that looks crazy good!!

  16. Great twist on an old classic! I would eat this any day, the biscuits sound amazing!

  17. Oh, nothing says “home” more than pot pies!!!

  18. I will admit I’m not a huge pot pie fan but I’m loving the bacon cheddar biscuits on top. This may actually make me change my mind about this dish!

  19. What a great idea for when my parents-in-law come to visit.

  20. Amazing! I love that you topped these off with biscuits! Will definitely have to try that.

  21. I like the way you’ve updated this. Retro, indeed!

  22. Topped with bacon cheddar biscuits. And here I thought I had the best chicken pot pie recipe. I have a feeling this one wins.

  23. Pot pie is one of my hubby’s favorites…and yours is the most tempting version I’ve ever seen! I love that gorgeous biscuit topping! I hope to try this soon :)

  28. I squealed a loud, excited “YES!” when I saw the title of your post – I adore pot pie and the bacon cheddar biscuit topping is genius. This is the epitome of comfort food. I love your casserole dish too – it’s gorgeous!

  29. Yum! I get the reason why you fell in love with pot pie now. What a lovely dish!

  30. We love, love, love pot pies. I could eat a portion right through the screen, Carla. It looks amazing!

  31. Well, I definitely like pie crust, but I’m up for anything and your biscuit topped chicken pot pie looks amazing!

  32. So I always ate the crust and left the middle. That white gravy like stuff turned me off so much. You recipe though is incredible. I think if I made this my husband would eat the whole thing. You have no idea how much he love pot pie, and chicken, and biscuits. Fabulous comforting recipe Carla.

  33. Oh helllllooooo BACON! I love adding the bacon and cheddar to the biscuits for another layer of flavors! Great addition!

  34. Carla, I think I have the same taste as yours, as I am attracted with the Bacon Cheddar Biscuits topping:D

  35. I’m not a huge fan of pie crust either. Chicken pot pie topped with bacon cheddar biscuits sound way better to me. Looks really delicous Carla. Doing a great job cooking more savory dishes my friend!

  36. This is simply gorgeous–so elegant and inviting looking. Kudos!

    Cheers,
    Alaiyo
