The best part of this meal is that most of it can cook all day in a crock pot and be all smelling fantastic and waiting for you to come waltzing in your door after your busy day. Pop in some refrigerated biscuits in the oven (or from scratch if you are so inclined), and by the time the table is set, dinner is ready. Ingredients you will need for your recipe are as follows:
4 Chicken breasts (thawed - frozen would work too with longer cooking time)
1 diced onion (or bag of frozen chopped onions)
2 celery stalks chopped
2-3 carrots cut in rounds
1 15 oz can corn
1 large (23 oz) family sized can of cream of chicken soup
1 32 oz box chicken broth (I used Rachael Ray)
Salt, pepper, and dried parsley to taste
(full printable recipe at the end of the post)
Pour the large cream of chicken soup in chopped onion, celery, carrots and the can of corn in the bottom of the crock pot.
|You can tailor the veggies to your liking. Add frozen peas the last hour of cooking if you wish.|
|Adding the chicken in. I pushed them down after this picture was taken.|
Cook on low in the crock pot for six hours. After six hours, pull chicken out of the pot and chop up into bite sized chunks on a plate.
Now bake up a quick pan of your favorite biscuits until they are fluffy and golden brown.
|By now your house should smell like heaven.|
While the biscuits are still warm, split them open on a plate and top with a pat of butter.
|Mmmm melted butter on a hot bun. Hello comfort food.|
After that, lovingly spoon over a heapin' helpin' of the chicken pot pie mixture. Serve with fruit, a green salad, and you've got an easy winner winner chicken dinner.
|Upside Down Chicken Pot Pie|
I'm not gonna lie here people. This was so so SO good. The kids ate it up. It made for great left overs too. I stored the extra pot pie filling by itself in microwave-safe container, and wrapped the biscuits separately. I sent hubby to work with an "upside down chicken pot pie" kit and he could heat and assemble at work at will.
I was trying to figure out the differences between chicken n dumplings, chicken n' biscuits, and my new and improved upside down chicken pot pie. In my research to make the first two, I kept reading comments about the dumplings being "raw" or soggy in the middle. In the case of chicken n biscuits, (in which you cook the biscuit dough on top of the pot pie sauce), the number one complaint was soggy biscuit bottoms. Well have soggy bottoms no more!
