Everyday Mom's Meals: Better Than The Box

Better Than The Box

We've all had the "pot pie" out of a box. Admit it. You know you have! And every now and then I get a craving for a good 'ole turkey pot pie, so I'm not criticizing! But when I was brought into the Marshall family, I was introduced to a really easy recipe that tastes like it cooks all day, but is super easy. One reason being, is it uses refrigerated biscuits, not a traditional crust. Adam's mom always cooked it like a casserole w/ the biscuits on top, but the first time I made it, I discovered if you bake them separately, they don't become as soft, and you can serve the chicken mixture either on the top of opened biscuits or top the mixture w/ them and it tastes the exact same. Serving the biscuits on the bottom kind of gives it a chicken and dumplings feel, which I enjoy but either is equally tasty. So if want something your family thinks you slaved away at all day, but really you put together in less than hour, make this---and take all the credit for working so hard!

Chicken Pot Pie
