This spectacular Biscuit Topped Chicken Pot Pie is homemade comfort food at it’s finest! A rich a hearty filling is topped with fluffy soft biscuits turning this classic dish into a taste of the South in your mouth. I could serve chicken pot pie or chicken and dumplings every other day at my house without a single complaint from my family. Not one. This biscuit topped chicken pot pie packs double the comfort and it’s super simple to make.
This version of pot pie begins on the stovetop and is finished in the oven to bake the biscuits on top. Drop biscuits are the simplest of biscuits to make and using an ice cream scoop keeps them uniform in size for even baking. This comforting dish is inspired by my own Mom who made pot pie for us regularly when we were growing up. It’s a one dish meal filled with love that simply never gets old.
