Biscuit

A biscuit is a flour-based baked and shaped food product. In most countries biscuits are typically hard, flat, and unleavened. They are usually sweet and may be made with sugar, chocolate, icing, jam, ginger, or cinnamon. They can also be savoury, similar to crackers. Biscuit may also refer to hard flour-based baked animal feed, as with dog biscuit.

In most of North America, nearly all hard sweet biscuits are called “cookies”, while the term “biscuit” is used for a soft, leavened quick bread similar to a scone – see biscuit (bread).

Types of biscuit include sandwich biscuits, digestive biscuits, ginger biscuits, shortbread biscuits, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate-coated marshmallow treats, Anzac biscuits, biscotti, and speculaas.

CROCKPOT CHICKEN AND BISCUITS

The best recipes have a combination of textures and flavors. Sometimes slow cooker recipes suffer from lack of both. This recipe solves that problem by a quick sear of the chicken before slow cooking, added seasoning, and using the oven safe CrockPot insert to bake the biscuits right on top.

Do I have to use the pre-mixed frozen veggies or can I choose my own?

You can definitely use your own mix of veggies. I’ve just found that all of my favorites for this pot pie recipe are already included in the mix.

Can I use another variation of cream soup?

Of course!  Cream of chicken definitely mixes well with the flavors and spices in this pot pie recipe, but you can also use cream of celery or cream of mushroom in yours.  It will still be delicious!

Can I use a different kind of biscuits with this pot pie?

Sure, use whichever kind of biscuits are your favorite.  You could even use homemade.

Substitutions and Variations

  • If you don’t have chicken on hand, you can shred rotisserie chicken and add it into the mix.  You can put it in prior to cooking, or closer to when you are ready to eat the pot pie.
  • Not a fan of Grands biscuits?  I think that they pair well with this recipe, but you could also use frozen brands, such as Mary B’s.

What To Serve/Pair With Your Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Recipe

  • If you would like something extra with your pot pie entree, add a side salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, and croutons.
  • My favorite dessert pairing with chicken pot pie is a warm apple pie or peach cobbler.  There’s something about a fresh cobbler that adds to the comfort food feeling from the pot pie.

Tips For Making the Perfect Crock Pot Chicken Pot Pie With Cream of Chicken Soup

  • Keep the crockpot closed as long as you can to make sure that all of the flavors soak in properly.
