  1. I think I could just leave off the biscuits and have a chunky chicken soup! Love love love your blog!!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Awesome!! Thank you for sharing, and so happy everyone enjoyed them.. πŸ™‚

  2. 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.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Ha.. Thanks for sharing that Alison. Glad it was BF approved!! πŸ™‚

  3. I just made this tonight!! It was one of the best pot pies i have had! I have 4 boys ages 8-14 and they all loved it!! Next time i will be doubling the recipe cause everyone wanted more!!!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Oh that is so awesome to hear, nothing like satisfying teenage boys who love to eat πŸ˜‰ Glad it was approved by everyone!

  4. 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

    • Drizzle Reply

      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

        • Drizzle Reply

          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 πŸ˜‰ people get all different point ranges, some may need 2 servings as they have more points to spare, so everyone’s journey is different πŸ™‚

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

    • Drizzle Reply

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

  6. 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!

    • Drizzle Reply

      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..

  7. 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.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Rhonda, that is great to hear, glad your all enjoying it, I like the idea of the crescent rolls πŸ™‚

  8. I made this for supper tonight. It tasted amazing!!!!!!! Will definitely be making this again.

    • Drizzle Reply

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

  9. 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!

  10. 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?

    • Drizzle Reply

      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 πŸ™‚

  11. Loved this recipe and so did my husband! Have you ever substituted almond milk for the 1% milk or would it throw off the consistency and not form the gravy?

    • Drizzle Reply

      HI Brandi, so glad you both enjoyed it, I think the almond milk would work fine πŸ™‚

  12. I made this with leftover turkey and it was so good! Thank you so much. I love your recipes and this one is definitely a keeper!

    • Drizzle Reply

      You are very welcome, love the turkey idea πŸ™‚

  13. I made this tonight. We loved it! Thank you for sharing this re ipr

      Hi Laurie, you are very welcome, so glad you enjoyed it πŸ™‚

  14. Made this last night, made a couple of variations, i had shredded chicken in the freezer, just thawed it for the recipe. Substituted frozen mixed vegetables for the recipe veggies, just popped them in tge microwave with the onion to cook, added thawed chicken and veggies to sauce. Used frozen biscuits, slightly thawed, than cut them to make them thinner, let me top tge whole pan, like a crust. Was yummy, ans hubby loved! Win!

  16. I made this and loved it! My husband did as well. However When I put in the ingredients with points into WW I couldn’t get it any lower than 6 pts a serving. I used the exact same products too.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Susan.. I just looked back in my App to find the recipe when I built it, I did notice a few errors but it brought it to 5SP per serving which I am going to update now, you only ebtered 9 biscuits and not the full pack right? If you want to email me to go over it feel free [email protected]

  17. I really want to try this and trying to find the right cream of chicken soup to use since the one you use is different than what we have in the stores. Can I use a condensed cream of chicken soup and if so do I need to add extra water?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Michelle, the one I use is a condensed so no need to add water .. there is a picture of the one I use in my post πŸ™‚

  18. This was amazeballs!! I had a and of frozen peas and carrots so I used that instead of fresh and I cooked boneless skinless chicken thighs. I also used crescent roll sheet instead of biscuits. My husband devoured it and my super picky 19 yo daughter who prefers Chic Fil A over home cooked said it was delicious and wanted more! Thank you for this!

      Hi Felicia, yay I love that everyone enjoyed it πŸ™‚ I have a picky 17 yr old and she lives of fast food so I get it lol, glad she enjoyed it
