Chilly fall days (with winter lurking) calls for comfort food.. and casserole are great for that! This chicken pot pie recipe is really easy to put together and sure to be a hit. The pillsbury biscuits are a perfect topping and really make it filling and satisfying. It serves up 9 small portions at 4 points plus or 5 smart points each.

  3. Preheat oven to 400F, spray a 9x13 casserole dish and set aside.

    Made this tonight. My boyfriend took one bite and said “you can make this one again whenever you want!” I’d call that a success.

    I know you said 9 portions do you know approximately how much a serving is? It is a little hard to accurately scoop a portion when the mixture moves lol

      Yeah I hear you but I just based it of the biscuits and try to scoop the portion surrounding it. I did not weigh it out sorry.

        If you are a WeightWatcher Member as I am…I would have only 1cup plus one biscuit

          I am a lifetime WW member and have been for 20 years, everyone eats differently, I don’t think its fair to say what one should or shouldn’t have as a serving based on if they are a member or not ๐Ÿ˜‰ people get all different point ranges, some may need 2 servings as they have more points to spare, so everyone’s journey is different ๐Ÿ™‚

    Everything in me is against margarine. Any other sub that’s not butter?

      Sure, you can use butter, It really won’t affect points overall much

  • Reply Nicole Seeley October 18, 2016 at 6:12 pm

    I’m slightly confused. You have this recipe at 5sp per serving, 9 servings but when I put it into the points calculator as you have it, it comes out with 8sp. Any idea where the discrepancy would be??? I saw your note about the veggies so even when I didn’t include those it still came out at 8sp. Great meal but I love it even more at 5sp LOL… Thanks for any thoughts you have!

      Hi Nicole, please note that products vary and what I use and you use might be different, I am in Canada and if your in the U.S and use a different brand of something it can throw off the points, did you use the small biscuits (that come in the 4 value pack, 7.5oz pack, and only 9 of them not 10) the soup could be a different brand or the margarine.. I use my fitness pal and input all my ingredients that match exactly to what I used to get my nutritional info, I also do the math in my head and figure SP value for each item and add up then divide by my yield..

    This meal is amazing. I have made it dozens of times my one year old loves it. I have started to use fat reduced crescent rolls unrolled over the whole dish. I’ve also just had the filling as a soup before.

    Can you make this in a muffin tin to help with portion size?

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle March 19, 2017 at 2:37 pm

      Hi Jessica, I would think so, that’s a great idea ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Reply JoAnne July 2, 2017 at 6:39 pm

    I find the biscuit a bit doughy on the bottom if cooked with the chicken mix so I bake the biscuits separate and put it on just before serving. It is delicious!

    Kate, I love this recipe and this is the absolute best chicken pot pie I’ve ever had. My husband said it’s good and he likes it. Rarely does he say that about anything I cook! Thank you for sharing the recipe. Do you think it would be a good bubble up recipe? I was thinking about cutting up the biscuits as in a bubble up but wonder if there is too much soup base for the biscuits to cook up. What do you think?

      Hi Donna, so glad you both enjoyed it, I am not too sure about the bubble up, it may be too much liquid for that but you can try ๐Ÿ™‚
