Easy Chicken Pot Pie Casserole Recipe
If you’re on TikTok, you have surely seen this Chicken Pot Pie Cobbler recipe, which is viral for a reason! If you haven’t seen it, then you’re in for a real treat. Including a perfectly seasoned vegetable and chicken base, a creamy filling, and finished with a buttery biscuit topping, this is a super flavorful and easy casserole that is what weeknight dinner dreams are made of.
After reading so many comments on the original recipe, I made some updates to improve the texture of the cobbler, and this version is even better.
This easy casserole requires just 10 to 15 minutes of prep and then all the ingredients are simply layered in the casserole dish – no stirring. Into the oven it goes for about an hour and baked to comfort food perfection!
This chicken pot pie casserole recipe is made with most of the same ingredients and flavors you’d find in a traditional frozen pot pie dinner.
(Scroll below to the printable recipe card for details and measurements.)
- Chicken – Shredded cooked and seasoned chicken. Make baked chicken breast or pick up a rotisserie chicken at the store.
- Frozen peas and carrots – No need to thaw first.
- Chicken broth – Use low-sodium to avoid making this dish too salty.
- Cream of chicken soup – This gets mixed with the chicken broth. We also use the low-sodium variety. Do not dilute with water.
- Whole milk – Part of the filling that makes it rich and creamy.
- Melted butter – Poured into the bottom of the casserole and also mixed with seasonings, which is basted onto the baked topping.
- Cheddar Bay Biscuits Mix – You’ll be using the entire box, plus the seasoning packet.
- Seasonings – A simple combination of black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder season this easy chicken casserole.
- Cheddar cheese – The original didn’t include cheese, but…I added some. Because CHEESE. For optimal flavor, use fresh cheddar off the block, not pre-shredded.
Here are a few ways to change up this casserole.
- Add salt at the end. I chose not to add salt to this dish since there’s so much sodium in the cream of chicken soup and chicken stock even with low-sodium versions. If it’s not to your level of saltiness, you can always add some at the end.
- Swap out the chicken with turkey. You can easily turn this into a turkey pot pie casserole by swapping the chicken for leftover turkey. The perfect way to use up leftover Thanksgiving turkey!
- Add your favorite veggies. If you don’t like peas and carrots, no worries. You can add any type of vegetables you want to your chicken pot pie, like corn, broccoli, cauliflower, or green beans.
- Use Bisquick. We prefer the cheddar bay biscuit mix because it has more flavor, but the original chicken cobbler was made with Bisquick instead.

This was delicious – big hit with the family!!
My bunch is so picky but this recipe was a smash hit!!!
This was great!
This recipe is so good! It is going to be one of my family staples. It did boil over a little, so next time I will place some aluminum foil in the bottom of the oven to catch anything that bubbles over. Thank you , Amy!
My husband and I love this recipe. I would love to see one made using ground beef.
This was great! Made exactly as directed.
This was DELICIOUS & super easy
My guests absolutely enjoyed this recipe. They said it was the best pot pie they had ever eaten. Made my heart so happy. Only thing I added was a teaspoon of poultry seasoning. This recipe is a keeper!
This recipe was bomb. I added in some frozen corn with the peas and carrots but no other changes.
I’m not a fan of peas so I used corn instead. This was sooo good! Easy to make and a hit with the family.
So yummy and easy! I made this for dinner tonight and I used your Baked Chicken recipe for the chicken filling. Both recipes were easy to make and absolutely delicious! This will definitely be added to my recipe rotation!
Omg, I LOVE your changes! Reversing the soup mixture with the biscuit mixture is a game changer. And yes, cheese is not optional. LOL.
