Bisquick Chicken Pot Pie

The Mission:

Make Chicken Pot Pie for dinner since I was craving it. I used the Bisquick recipe since that's what my husband suggested, since he remembered liking it as a child.

The Ingredients:
  • 2 cups frozen veggies, thawed
  • 1 cup cooked chicken, or 1 can chicken
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup bisquick
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten

The Instructions:

Mix the chicken, veggies, and soup in a bowl until well combined. Pour into a greased 8x8 inch pan. In a separate bowl, mix the milk, eggs, and bisquick until dough forms. Drop dough by the spoonful onto the chicken mixture in the pan. Bake in a 400* oven for 30 minutes.

The Results:

In all honesty, I wasn't very thrilled with how it turned out. It tasted rather bland, so I added salt and pepper to my portion. The crust part tasted just fine, but the chicken part seemed too thick. I guess I like "soupier" chicken pot pie. Oh well - next time I'll try a different recipe and see how that goes.

The Reviews:

My husband seemed to really like it, though he did add salt and pepper to his portion as well. Friend Mark had the same thoughts that I did - it was rather bland, and too thick. But at least it was still edible! I will look into finding a more appetizing recipe for chicken pot pie to use in the future.

Next time add a lil bit more milk. Then add some sour cream & a lil left over gravy to your cream of chicken soup. Mix that all to together in a separate bowl taste as you make. Really good and tasty then.. :)
