I have been doing a lot of recipe testing lately. Looking for those recipes that are worth posting about. This recipe stood out to me because its a delicious twist on a classic comfort food! Creamy Chicken Pot Pie filling and an easy biscuit crusted topping! My favorite part is eating a bite of biscuit, chicken and smothered in the cream sauce! With winter just around the corner I look forward to home cooked meals like this. I am sure I will be making this dish at least twice a month. Its easy while I’m busy with my three boys and the leftovers are great to heat up. This is also a wonderful dish to make for a friend or when having people over for dinner.

Next time I make this Biscuit Topped Creamy Chicken Pot Pie I want to add more seasonal vegetables and give it a little more color, texture and flavor. Inside is the classic celery, thyme, cream and chicken. Similar to the comfort that chicken noodle soup gives on a cold day. The biscuit top is soft and has cheddar cheese mixed in with it which takes this dish to another level! This Biscuit Topped Creamy Chicken Pot Pie has quickly become a family favorite! I love the family traditions that are centered around food based on the time of year, weather outside and the smell of certain recipes baking in the oven. You and your family will not be disappointed by this Biscuit Topped Creamy Chicken Pot Pie! It’s a keeper!
