This Easy Chicken Pot Pie with Cheddar Herb Biscuits recipe is a childhood favorite that never gets old. While it’s classic version contains a top and bottom crust with the filling tussled inside, this recipe is a nice play on tradition meets modern (shredded chicken + mixed veggies). Don’t worry–you’ll still be satisfied with the flakiness of these cheddar herb biscuits and the extra cheese in the filling, which adds the perfect creaminess that’s really hard to resist. This pot pie is nothing short of flavor. Super easy to whip together and all made in just one baking dish.
Easy Chicken Pot Pie with Cheddar Herb Biscuits—–my childhood fave!! I remember eating the microwavable version of chicken pot pie and loving every bit of it, especially the flaky crust on the outside.
It’s like eating a bowl of warm goodness.
But now that I’ve made this from scratch and slightly different from the classic version, I must admit that this is WAY BETTER! Totally better.
I’m definitely making this recipe again. Plus, my little guy LOVED it. That’s always a plus in my book since my little guy is super picky with food. Haha.
OK, so as I’ve mentioned, classic chicken pot pie consists of an actual “pie-like” look—-a bottom + top crust. And while there are still many recipes which still keep things classic, I wanted to create a NEW comforting way of enjoying such an amazing childhood dish. That’s why I chose to add biscuits to the top.
Oh, but these biscuits are not just regular biscuits—-I wanted to add additional bold cheddar flavor, therefore, adding cheddar herb biscuits to the mix really created that burst of flavor. Trust me, once you try this recipe, you’ll thank me later!
While this dish is intended for dinner, you can change things up a bit for the entire family by eating this as a breakfast (if that’s your thing) or lunch meal. So versatile and the savory flavor is dynamite.
When it comes to the traditional pot pie as I previously mentioned, there aren’t biscuits included—it’s actually a crust for the base and top. However, for this dish, I wanted to add extra pizazz to this delicious recipe by adding Cheddar Herb Biscuits on top. While these biscuits are super easy to whip together, if you’re pinched for time or just don’t feel like making biscuits, you can always use store-bought biscuits. Simply take them out of their packaging and placing them evenly on top and let it bake. Wallah!
It’s absolutely delicious—-savory + full of flavor!
Super easy to make (plus, no crazy clean-up! Can we say–Everything in one baking dish?)
Loaded with cheesy flavors, fresh herbs, + soft biscuits on top.
Perfect for any time of day—Breakfast (if that’s your thing), Brunch, Lunch, or Dinner, whatever!

Like many dishes, you can store any leftover pot pie in a tightly covered container or glass dish and refrigerated for 4-5 days. Of course, for a longer salvage, you can store your uncooked pot pie filling in the freezer using a freezer safe storage bag or container for up to 3 months. Once ready to use, thaw overnight in the fridge, add filling to a baking dish, add your freshly prepped biscuits, and bake per the recipe.
