Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 white or yellow onion finely diced
  • 3 yukon gold potatoes peeled and chopped small
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced, pressed, or use garlic paste)
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) chicken broth
  • 1 bar (8 oz) cream cheese softened & cubed
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 cups shredded or chunked chicken
  • ½ cup frozen peas
  • 1 tube (8 biscuits) flaky buttermilk bisucits

Topping

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350° F. Prepare a 9x13 baking dish by spraying with cooking spray.
  • In a large pan, over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add carrots, celery, onion, and potatoes, salt & pepper. Sauté for 8-10 minutes or until softened. Add the garlic and cook for an additional 1 minute.
  • Add flour, chicken broth, and cream cheese. Stir and let cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until everything is combined and cream cheese is melted.
  • Stir in chicken and peas and mix to combine. Spread evenly into the prepared dish.
  • Cut each biscuit (8 biscuits total) into 6 smaller pieces. I cut the biscuit in half and then cut each half into 3 pieces. Lay the cut biscuits on top of the creamy pot pie mixture.
  • Brush melted butter over the biscuits and sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes or until biscuits are cooked through and golden brown on top.

Notes

Parmesan Cheese : It's best to use the cheaper grated parmesan cheese (the shelf stable kind at the grocery store) because it won't burn in the oven like shredded parmesan cheese will. 
Cream Cheese : To make sure the cream cheese easily incorporates, place the unwrapped cream cheese bar on a microwave-safe plate and microwave it for 40 seconds. Add this softened cream cheese into the skillet and it will melt right in. No need to cut into cubes if you microwave it first. 
Chicken : I use a Rotisserie chicken in this recipe to make the prep really simple. 
Tips : Cut all the vegetables into small chunks/pieces. That way they will cook in the time given. Make sure all the vegetables are softened to your liking before moving on with the recipe as they won't cook much more in the oven. If the vegetable pieces are larger then you will need to cook them longer in the skillet pan. 
I highly suggest using full-fat, real cream cheese. It has the best flavor, and provides the best creaminess and richness. I use full salt chicken broth in this recipe. You can use reduced-sodium chicken broth and you may need to add additional salt if needed.
