Ingredients That You’ll Need:

  • Yellow onion: In this case, we lightly brown the onion to add flavor.
  • Butter: Use unsalted butter for this recipe.
  • All-purpose flour: I like to use unbleached flour.
  • Low-sodium chicken broth: You can enhance the flavor by using homemade chicken stock.
  • Half and a half: You can also use heavy cream if you want it even richer, but you’ll need a little bit more since it’s thicker.
  • Thyme, rosemary, and parsley: You can use fresh or dried.
  • Frozen mixed vegetables: Choose a blend that contains carrots, peas, green beans, and corn.
  • Rotisserie chicken: Another option is to use leftover chicken meat or to make your own roasted chicken.
  • Baking powder and baking soda: The biscuits are leavened with these agents to get a nice, tall rise.
  • Buttermilk: Buttermilk adds a lot more flavor to biscuits than milk.
  • Salt and pepper: If you forget this, the recipe will taste completely bland.

Can I make this Pioneer Woman Chicken Pot Pie With Biscuits vegetarian?

Yes! To make Pioneer Woman Pot Pie With Biscuits vegetarian, simply omit the chicken, use veggie broth, and add a bit more veggies (or even potatoes).

Biscuit Options For Pioneer Woman Chicken Pot Pie

  • I love to make this Pioneer Woman Chicken Pot Pie with either my homemade buttermilk biscuits or Buttermilk Scones from Ina Garten. These can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for up to two days until ready to bake on top of the filling at 425° for 15-18 minutes.
  • Cheddar Bay Biscuit is also perfect with this Pioneer Woman Chicken Pot Pie, Prepare the dry ingredients ahead of time. When you’re ready to bake, mix the wet ingredients and form the dough. Bake them in a skillet according to the biscuit recipe instructions.
  • You can also use refrigerator biscuits (such as Pillsbury/Grands).
  • If you are making biscuits with Bisquick or a Biscuit mix, prepare them just before baking. Refer to the package for baking time and temperature.
  • Alternatively, you can bake the biscuits while you prepare the filling, but baking them directly on top of the skillet of pot pie adds even more comfort!

How To make Pioneer Woman Chicken Pot Pie With Biscuits?

  1. Place the oven rack in the upper third of the oven. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a 12-by-2 1/4-inch cast iron skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Saute onions until they are slightly golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Stir in the flour and continue sauteing for another minute.
  4. Slowly add chicken broth and a half and a half while whisking. Add the thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper to taste.
  5. Cook until it just lightly simmers, stirring constantly, then reduce heat to low so it slightly thickens.
  6. Add the vegetables and chicken and cook about 30 seconds longer (it does not need to be fully heated). Remove from the heat and set aside.
  7. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture, and set it aside.
  8. Melt butter in a microwave-safe dish until it is about two-thirds melted. Remove the butter and whisk it in to melt completely (if you melted it all the way, no problem, just let it cool for a few minutes).
  9. Pour butter into buttermilk and whisk until the mixture becomes clumpy.
  10. Using a rubber spatula, fold buttermilk mixture into flour mixture until just combined.
  11. Use a 1/4 cup capacity ice cream scoop (or a greased measuring cup) to scoop out dough and place on prepared pot pie filling in skillet. Repeat this process until all the dough is used up, resulting in 8 biscuits.
  12. Transfer biscuits to the oven and bake until they are cooked through, approximately 17 to 22 minutes, depending on how golden brown you’d like them (keep an eye on them).

  • For extra homemade flavor, homemade chicken stock can also be used.
  • Half and half can be substituted with heavy cream. Milk can also be used, but it won’t be as thick/creamy.
