Not only is this meal made all in the same skillet, but the drop biscuits have a secret ingredient that really puts this dish over the top!

Skillet recipes are a great way to feed the whole family without making a big mess in the kitchen. Plus, every bite is bursting with flavor since all of the ingredients cook together.

My Skillet Mac and Cheese with Broccoli is perfect for any occasion. You can even stir in some rotisserie or leftover chicken to make it more filling.

If you’re in the mood for Italian, try my Baked Ziti Skillet or 3 Cheese Skillet Lasagna. Both dishes have all of the flavor without all of the prep!

How To Make Easy Chicken Pot Pie

First, have all of your ingredients prepped and measured because this comes together quickly!

Don’t forget to preheat your oven too; you’ll need it to be hot when you add the biscuits to the skillet.
  1. Brown the chicken. Melt butter in your skillet, then cook the seasoned chicken pieces just until they are no longer translucent.
  2. Add vegetables and cheese. Whisk in the flour and deglaze the pan with the chicken stock. Then, stir in the veggies and cheese until combined.
  3. Make the drop biscuits. While the skillet mixture comes to a boil, whisk together the biscuit ingredients just until combined. Don’t overmix or they will be tough and dry.
  4. Bake and serve. Use a rounded tablespoon or small scoop to drop the dough on top of the skillet. Pop the skillet in the oven and bake until the biscuits are cooked through and golden.

Use fresh cheese!

When it comes to Parmesan, nothing beats the flavor of a freshly grated wedge.

Plus, pre-bagged shreds have anti-caking additives that prevent the cheese from melting properly. This can also cause unwanted thickening in your recipes.

Grate your own, then store it in a zip-top bag or sealed container. It will stay fresh in the refrigerator for several weeks.

Tools for Making This Skillet Recipe
  • Large Skillet  - Use a wide cast iron or oven-safe skillet. It should be at least 10 inches in diameter so everything cooks evenly, but larger is better.
  • Mixing Bowls - I like a variety of mixing bowls and prep bowls and this set has them all.
  • Whisk - These have held up for over 10 years and are still as good as the day I bought them.
  • Cheese Grater - As much as I love buying shredded cheese because I'm lazy, freshly grated cheese melts down so much better.
  • Baking Sheet - This just makes it easier to get the pan in and out of the oven and prevents any spills.

FAQ - Common Recipe Questions

Can you serve pot pie as leftovers? Absolutely! If you want the biscuits to hold their shape, store those separately. Otherwise, transfer everything to a container with a lid and refrigerate for 3 to 4 days.

What if I don’t have an oven safe skillet? Simply transfer the cooked pot pie filling to a greased 9x9 baking dish and add the biscuit dough on top of that instead.

You may need to add a few minutes to the cook time since the pan won’t already be hot. Just keep an eye on the biscuits to know when it’s done!

  1. My husband put this together for supper this evening and it was quite tasty. Thanks for sharing.

  2. made your one pot chicken pot pie for supper last night.. it`s become my go to pot pie recipe and it is always a hit!

  3. Do you use a cast iron skillet or what kind would you recommend?
    Thank you! -Alicia

    1. I have used cast iron, non stick and stainless and they all worked magnificently. Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

    2. Try to find an old iron skillet with high sides...Wagner or Griswold, those are the best...make sure you season
      the skillet well.

  4. They all sound great! Thanks Donna! Pinning them!

  5. Ah! I need this in my life! I love chicken pot pie, but would much rather have a biscuit topping versus a pie crust topping. Looks gorgeous!

  6. Can't see the potpie recipe anymore...what happened?!

  7. This sounds more like Chicken and dumplings than chicken pie.

    1. Maybe you should learn what each are.... chicken and dumplings is JUST THAT.

  8. could you use canned biscuits or even Bisquick?

    1. I used canned biscuits and they were delicious. I used some for the pie and baked the rest to use for breakfast!

  9. I made the recipe, and it was a big hit at our house. It is fast, easy, and delicious. I especially like that I had only one pan to clean up afterwards.

  10. Wanted to print this recipe, but only the first page comes thru, second page is blank.

  11. This sounds terrific, so I'll definitely give it a try very soon. I never made an actual "Chicken Pot Pie", throughout all of the years which I've been cooking, but I'm definitely going to make this one! It sounds very tasty, but I'll also add in a tiny bit of finely grated garlic (for a bit more flavor). ENJOY!

      Thank you so much! Enjoy and let us know how it goes!

  12. Have made this often. It is delicious and very simple to make.

      We are so happy to hear that you enjoy it, Sharon!!

  13. Appreciate this post. Will try it out.

  14. Hi! Today I made the chicken pot pie. Don't know yet how is it going to be, but sure it will be great! Even though, you know what I missed? I couldn't find the video, to ensure myself of the idea I could understand from the bisquits... you put them in the same chicken pot skillet, all together, and then put it in the oven?

  15. Quick question, how would I go about freezing this, or can it be frozen? I'm the only one in the family that loves chicken pot pie and I really want to try this recipe.
