Real talk: I have an unhealthy obsession with Bisquick. I could live on it. If I were deserted on an island, I would be okay if I had Bisquick, some eggs and a bit of milk. Which is why I LOVE that Bisquick has such quick and easy recipes on the back of the box.
However, upon coming home from the UK, I discovered that the recipes on the back of the box have been pared down to just the basics – biscuits, pancakes, etc. Before I left, the box had this fantastic recipe for chicken pot pie that I had made SO many times! A quick Google search brought me to this recipe which seems seemingly identical to what was on the box. That was a great starting point, but I also remembered that I made a couple of small changes.
So, since the recipe has been demoted from box status, I thought I would do the world a favour and share this wonderful dinner.
Bisquick Chicken Pot Pie
Time: 45 minutes (15 prep + 30 cook)
Serves: 2-3 (although I could probably eat a whole pie myself!)
- 2 breasts (1 to 1 1/2 cups) cooked chicken
- 1 3/4 cup frozen vegetables, thawed (I used the peas and carrots mix this time, sometimes I like the one with corn as well)
- 1 (10 ounce) can cream of chicken soup (try to grab low-sodium for a healthier option, but since I buy the cheap no-name brand for this recipe, I take whatever they have)
- 1 cup Bisquick
- 1/2 cup milk (again you can go healthier by adjusting fat content)
- 1 egg
We almost always have some cooked chicken laying around. When our dog is having a bad tummy day, we feed her canned pumpkin (note: NOT pumpkin pie filling) and then some boiled chicken breast before weaning her back onto her food. It works wonders! So the first step for me was to cut up the cooked chicken into easy bite-size pieces while preheating the oven to 400 F.
In a medium or large mixing bowl, mix together the chicken, vegetables and chicken soup.
Spoon and spread this mixture into a 9-inch glass pie plate.
In another medium mixing bowl, mix together the Bisquick, milk and egg. Make sure it all comes together thoroughly and there’s no powdery chunks (no one likes biting into those except me, apparently).
Pour the Bisquick mixture into the pie plate to spread over the chicken mixture. As you can see from my picture, it doesn’t matter if the veggies poke up a little through the Bisquick. Typically the Bisquick puffs up over it beautifully (or sometimes you have a stray veggie cooked into the topping, oh well).
Pop that bad boy in the oven and bake it for 30 minutes or until the top is a beautiful golden brown.
Seriously, this recipe is a crowd-pleaser. Every person I’ve made it for has then begged me to make it again. Thank goodness it is so quick and easy (not to mention delicious) so I don’t mind making it repeatedly!
