Everyone loves a good comfort meal; but with a job, kids and a busy lifestyle, it can be difficult to rationalize the time you need to make one. Cue the quickest (made in less than an hour start to finish), easiest chicken pot pie you will ever make! Versatile as can be, this dish can be basic or you can toss in everything but the kitchen sink!
Rotisserie chicken pulled apart into bite size pieces
3-4 red skin potatoes peeled and diced into bite-size pieces
4 packets of McCormick Chicken Gravy
1 bag of Birdseye frozen Classic Mixed Veggies
2 cups of Bisquick Baking Mix (I used gluten free)
2/3 cup milk
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Open the bag of mixed veggies and dump into a strainer to drain. This will take the longest, so you may need to rinse them with warm water to get the thawing process started.
Boil your red skin potatoes for 4-5 minutes or until they slide off of a fork when poked. Do not overcook these because they will continue to soften in the oven! You can drain the water and set these off to the side for now.
In a 9×13 baking dish, add the thawed and drained mixed veggies and diced potatoes. Top with your chicken and set aside.
In a small sauce pan, add 4 cups of water to the 4 packets of chicken gravy and whisk together. Heat on medium high until boiling and then reduce heat. Continue to stir to avoid clumping or burning. When thick, pour directly (and evenly) over the mixed veggies, diced potatoes and chicken in your baking dish.
In a mixing bowl, add the Bisquick, 3 eggs and 2/3 cup of milk. Stir with a spatula to keep it fluffy. Once mixed, drop spoons of the mix to the top of your baking dish evenly. You may not cover every space on your dish, but that’s okay! The mix will expand as it cooks.
Place uncovered in the oven and bake 13-16 minutes or until golden brown on top.
There are so many ways you can modify this recipe! Here are a few:
*Add a bag of cheddar cheese to your veggie and chicken mixture before topping with Bisquick.
*Use regular Bisquick.
*Use a can of Cream of Chicken soup instead of gravy.
*Top with crescent rolls, canned biscuits or even pastry crust!
Let me know how this turns out! I hope you love it!
