Super Cheap, Easy, and Delicious – Crystal’s Biscuit Pot Pies!

Thanks to cutting cable, I have no DVR, so I see commercials now when streaming shows from my laptop to my tv.  My roommate and I saw one a couple of weeks ago showing a mom making quick pot pies using a jumbo biscuit.  Well, we messed around with some recipes and ideas and I’ve settled on the one below.

Crystal’s Biscuit Pot Pie Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups of thawed frozen vegetables or canned vegetables like corn and peas – $1.76
  • Can of condensed cream of chicken soup – $0.75
  • Can of 8 Jumbo Flaky Biscuits, I used Aldi’s brand – $1.49
  • TOTAL = $4.00 for 8 Biscuit Pot Pies (4 people)

Biscuit Pot Pie Ingredients
The ingredients from last night were frozen vegetables, condensed cream of chicken soup, jumbo flaky biscuits, and optional spices.

Optional Extras

  • 1 cup of diced, cooked chicken – $1.50
  • Spices like salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder – $negligible
  • Shredded cheese – $1.00

Directions

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2.  Spray 8 cups of a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.

3.  Mix the condensed soup with the vegetables, optional spices, and optional chicken.  I used the garlic powder, onion powder, and a little pepper since the condensed soup added enough salt for us.

4.  Flatten out the biscuits so that they will fit into the muffin tin and fold up a little.

Flatten Biscuits
Just smush down the biscuits to be thin and flat to fit into the muffin pan.

5.  Place flattened biscuit dough into the 8 muffin spots.

6.  Fill each spot with the vegetable filling and fold over any extra dough.

Pot Pie Biscuits Before Cooking
This is what the pot pie biscuits will look like before going into the oven.

7.  Bake for 21-22 minutes.

8.  Sprinkle on the optional shredded cheese when there are 10 minutes left to the cook time.

9.  Enjoy!

Delicious Biscuit Pot Pies
These were delicious even without the diced chicken…which I forgot to thaw, so I skipped…

    That sounds really good! My son and I were just talking about different things we could do with biscuit dough–pigs in blankets, hamburger sliders, unsloppy joes, meat rolls, pasties… A couple of those are ones his friends make and I haven’t even tried. And now we have another one.

    Honestly, this is the kind of recipe I’ll try once and then use as a springboard for variations. Ground beef filling with mushrooms and onions. Shepherd’s pie, though I guess you’d want individual baking dishes for those. You’ve inspired me now!

    My mom made some of these with our leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. They were delish!

    Sounds great. I would be tempted to make my own dough with 2 cups of self rising flour, tbl spn fat of whatever variety, maybe dash of sugar or or honey, 3/4 cup of milk or whey.
    I save the whey from my greek yogurt making process for making bisquits, pancakes, anything that rises.

    Might add a bit of sage and/or thyme also.

    Those are SO adorable and delicious-looking! What a great idea… And you could take them to work to microwave, or have a bunch of them stashed in the freezer as “convenience” food. It’s brilliant!

  6. We do something similar, but we fill a cake pan with the filling and spread half-thick biscuits over the top.
