This Chicken Pot Pie with Cheesy Everything Bagel Spice Biscuits is the ultimate Fall comfort food! Loaded with a delicious creamy chicken base with mixed vegetables and topped with fluffy, melt in your mouth everything bagel spiced drop biscuits!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Dice onion and garlic. Set aside. Melt 4 tbsp of salted butter in a large cast iron skillet (that's oven safe!), mine is a 9 inch skillet, on medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add the onion and 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 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. 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, pepper and oregano. Taste the mixture and adjust seasonings if needed!
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.
Place the chicken pot pie filling in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, 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.
When the 15 minute baking time is up, remove the chicken pot pie carefully.
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.
Place the chicken and biscuit skillet BACK into the oven. Bake for another 15-20 minutes or until the biscuits are fully cooked through. You might want to place a baking sheet or foil underneath just in case it drips out.
If desired, once done baking, place on broil for 1-2 minutes to achieve the golden brown biscuit tops! Just make sure and keep an eye on them so they don't burn!
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!
For ease: Use a rotisserie chicken for this recipe! You can also bake 2 chicken breasts at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until done. Season with salt and pepper and then shred.
