Hello, Fall. Officially! Today I turned off our AC and opened the windows and if that doesn’t signify Fall is here, I don’t know what does! 

Okay, well, full disclosure: it is still about 85 degrees where I live. And there are a couple of things that more signify Fall to me. Like this Chai Spiced Coffee Cake. Or these Cinnamon Apple Spice Muffins aaaaand last but certainly not least, this Chicken Pot Pie with Cheesy Everything Bagel Spice Biscuits!

YES! Okay, y’all, this dish is not your standard Chicken Pot Pie. It is not made with a pie crust – but instead topped with easy + cheesy drop biscuits! However, the filling is similar to the pot pie flavor that you know and love. It’s extremely rich and delicious because I not only mixed in chicken broth, whole milk BUT I made sure and added a touch of heavy cream for extra goodness. Y’all know how I love my heavy cream! 

So you mix that delicious butter with fresh veggies like onion, garlic and then you make that delicious thick gravy by combining the broth, milk and cream. To this mixture you add the classic frozen mixed vegetables like peas, carrots + corn. Next you add in the super juicy tender shredded chicken. I feel like honestly you could just stop right there and eat that deliciousness BUT you would be doing a major injustice to yourself.

They are loaded with shredded cheddar cheese, lots of the super yum everything bagel spice and they bake up to be so fluffy, light and delicious! They make the perfect companion to the creamy chicken pie mixture. All combined, it’s melt in your mouth, creamy comfort food at its best. So let’s get into how to make it!

Ingredients You Need for Chicken Pot Pie with Cheesy Everything Bagel Spice Biscuits :

  • shredded chicken 
  • fresh onion + garlic 
  • all purpose flour 
  • chicken broth 
  • whole milk 
  • heavy cream 
  • salted butter 
  • baking powder 
  • shredded cheddar cheese 
  • everything bagel spice 
  • frozen mixed vegetables 
  • salt, pepper, garlic powder, fresh oregano 

How to Make Chicken Pot Pie with Cheesy Everything Bagel Spice Biscuits: 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. NOTE: For this recipe, I used a large, oven safe, cast iron skillet. You can also use a casserole dish or a dutch oven. 

Dice your onion and garlic. Set aside. Melt 4 tbsp of salted butter in a large cast iron skillet on medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add the onion and a large pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for about 2 minutes. Add in the minced garlic next and cook for another 2 minutes. 

To this, add ⅓ cup of all purpose flour and stir around, letting it cook and absorb into the onions. Cook for about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in 2 cups of chicken broth about ½ cup at a time. Next, whisk in the whole milk the same way. Lastly, add in the heavy cream. Whisk continually on low to medium heat for up to 5 minutes or until the mixture thickens.

Once thick, add the frozen vegetables. Cook these for 2 minutes in the mixture. Lastly, add in the shredded chicken. Add in about ½ tsp of salt and pepper. Taste the mixture and adjust seasonings if needed! (I personally LOVE salt so I added just a hint more!). 

Now – if you’re using anything OTHER than a cast iron skillet – at this point, you will need to transfer the chicken filling to a greased casserole dish. Otherwise, you can skip this step. 

Place the chicken filling in the skillet INSIDE of the oven to bake for 15 minutes. You can use this time to make the biscuit dough. 

In a mixing bowl, mix all purpose flour, baking powder and everything but the bagel spice. TO this, add melted butter and milk. Mix together. Lastly, add the shredded cheese and mix.

Once the 15 minutes of baking time is up, carefully remove the skillet. 

Using a ¼ measuring cup, measure out the biscuits. Instead of just “dropping” them on the filling, I rolled mine into a ball in my head, slightly flattened them out and gently placed them on top of the chicken filling. They looked like this:

Once you use up all of your biscuit dough, place the chicken and biscuit skillet BACK into the oven. Bake for another 15-20 minutes or until the biscuits are fully cooked through. As usual, I placed mine on broil for about 2-3 minutes to get the golden brown color on top. Make sure and watch it though so you don’t burn it!

Once the time is up, remove from the oven and let it cool for about 3-5 minutes. Finally, serve it up! Garnish with extra everything but the bagel seasoning, fresh oregano or more melted butter on top of the biscuits!

  3. To this, add the ⅓ cup of all purpose flour and stir around, letting it cook and absorb into the onions. Cook for about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in chicken broth about ½ cup at a time.

  5. NOTE: if you’re using anything OTHER than a cast iron skillet - at this point, you will need to transfer the chicken filling to a greased casserole dish. Otherwise, you can skip this step. 

  6. Place the chicken pot pie filling in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, make the biscuit dough.

  8. When the 15 minute baking time is up, remove the chicken pot pie carefully.

  9. Using a 1/4 measuring cup, measure out the biscuits and roll out the dough in your hands and then gently press them in your hand to make them look more like "biscuits". Place the biscuits directly on the chicken pot pie. Repeat until the dough is gone.

  10. Place the chicken and biscuit skillet BACK into the oven. Bake for another 15-20 minutes or until the biscuits are fully cooked through. If desired, place on broil for 1-2 minutes to achieve the golden brown biscuit tops! Just make sure and keep an eye on them!

  11. Once it's done cooking, remove and let it cool for about 3-5 minutes. Finally, serve it up! Garnish with extra everything but the bagel seasoning, fresh oregano or more melted butter on top of the biscuits! Enjoy!
