This is like chicken pot pie in casserole form using biscuit dough. Biscuit scraps fluff up in a delicious creamy vegetable sauce creating one fairly quick and tasty casserole! This recipe is one of those staple recipes I make from time to time. It’s a keeper! 

Biscuit scraps work great here because if you’ve made homemade biscuits before, scraps just don’t make the same biscuits as the cut out ones. I like to make a big batch of my favorite biscuit recipe and freeze them on a tray or plate (including scraps.) Then transfer them to zip-loc bags and use when needed. You’ll have ready to use biscuits anytime this way.

You can opt for store-bought ones but let me say that these homemade ones get so fluffy in that creamy sauce that it’s like airy dumplings in a thick soup if I may say–the results are just delicious! The biscuit scraps also create more bite size pieces versus whole ones, either can work though.A must try recipe for a Chicken Pot Pie alternative!

It does not seem like one chicken breast would be enough chicken for the dish. I would use a whole rotisserie chicken from the store.

Hi Donna, this dish is very tasty! Chicken breasts can go a long way and this amount won’t overwhelm the dish and vegetables. But, if you prefer lots of meat certainly add more or Rotisserie chicken if you please. Let me know how that works out.

I buy frozen biscuits, I think I will bake them while the veggies are cooking for about 10-12 mins then cut them up and add to chicken and veggies. Should be close to your recipe.

Hi Kathy, I toss my frozen biscuit scraps right in so you do not need to cook first. It bakes up right with the dish. You could try to thaw and cut up biscuits to reduce the baking time but even frozen biscuits bake for around 25 minutes. Plus baking them uncooked with this dish creates a super fluffy biscuit texture similar to biscuits and dumplings so it may be on the drier side if you bake them separately.
