Using leftover rotisserie chicken is a perfect shortcut for this meal. (Be sure to make some homemade chicken stock with the carcass!)

Make-Ahead Method

  • You can prepare the filling ahead of time and refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
  • When you’re ready to bake, pour the mixture into a lightly greased casserole dish.
  • Mix the Bisquick at the very last minute prior to baking. This will ensure that the top layer is light, fluffy, and is a perfect biscuit-like consistency.

Storage

Refrigerator

  • If you prepared the filling 2 days prior, store the leftovers for up to 2 days. 
  • Otherwise, leftovers can be stored for up to 4 days.

Freezer

  • Leftovers make a great freezer meal as well and can be stored for up to 3 months.
  • To reheat, let frozen leftovers come defrost overnight in the fridge before reheating for best results.
  • Cover and bake the leftovers in a 350° oven for about 20-30 minutes, depending on the portion size.

Notes

Note 1:
  • I like to purchase a rotisserie chicken for this meal because I use the chicken for the filling and make an easy chicken broth with the carcass that I also use for the filling. This gives it ultimate homemade flavor!

Note 2:
  • For the Crock Pot and Instant Pot methods, you can also transfer the prepared filling to a casserole dish and pour the Bisquick batter on top and bake it from there for the full casserole version.

  1. Mmmmm…..really good!!! This was our dinner tonight and we all enjoyed it! My husband says it reminds him of the frozen pot pies his mom used to bake for her family of nine when she was in a pinch, only a lot better. I cut up and browned chicken breast meat in a little olive oil since I didn’t have any cooked chicken, other than that I followed the recipe as written. Another great CC recipe that we’ll use often!!

    • I’m so happy you all enjoyed it Vicki!😃 It’s funny, my first pot pie experiences were also frozen pot pies my mom used to make! Thanks so much for the review!

  2. Made this for dinner tonight & it was DELICIOUS! Everyone loved it. Will definitely be making this again on a regular basis. Thanks for a great tasting recipe!

  3. Hi. I’m looking forward to making this tomorrow. The video, on YouTube, shows you adding pepper into the pan. The recipe listed here doesn’t mention pepper. Oops! Should I guess?

    Thanks,
    Wendy

  4. This recipe is a keeper, right before it was done I brushed the crust with butter and instead of parsley I  sprinkle some rosemary and thyme on the crust and broiled it for about a minute.

  5. I absolutely love making this. The whole family loves it, even the picky eaters lol. But the timing is a little off, especially if it’s your first time making it. It takes much longer to put the mixture together then the suggested time. My stepmother is diabetic and has to eat at a very specific time or her blood sugar drops to dangerous levels. I made this for the first time and planned dinner around the suggested time…we ate an hour late and I was in trouble. Oh and one thing I couldn’t help but notice on your video, you forgot to add potatoes. Lol

    • Hey Jennifer! You’re right, I just bumped up the prep time to 20 minutes, I apologize for that! The potatoes are an ingredient that I actually added after the video was made, my original version of the recipe didn’t include potatoes, but I much prefer to have them in there! I will say I’m really glad that you enjoyed the recipe though, and thank you for sharing your thoughts! 🙂

  6. Just made this! It was absolutely delicious. The only I may try next time is adding salt to the bisquick mix, it had a very bland taste

  7. So how does this qualify as a weight watchers recipe? Not in my book! 

    • Hi Deborah! It doesn’t, that I know of, I didn’t claim that it did- can I ask where you’re getting that from?

      • There is a Pinterest link to this that’s says weight watchers chicken pot pie. That’s why I clicked on it too. I’m sure someone else could have easily used this and made a picture for it or something that said it was weight watchers. 

      • Oh man! If you ever find that link again feel free to send it over to me so that I can report it! Thanks for letting me know!!

As Seen On…
