Biscuit-Topped Chicken Pot Pie

Author: Canadian Living

Make the filling on Sunday, then just add the topping today while the oven heats. Milk in the filling and in the biscuits adds calcium. Serve with salad.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 carrots sliced
  • 2 cups quartered mushrooms
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 3/4 cup sodium-reduced chicken stock
  • 2 cups green beans cut in 2-inch (5 cm) lengths
  • 3 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Biscuit Topping:
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup cold butter cubed
  • 2/3 cups milk

Method

In large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; saut?arrots, mushrooms, onion, tarragon, salt and pepper until onion is softened, about 8 minutes.

Add flour; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk and stock; bring to boil, stirring. Add beans. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until thick enough to coat back of spoon, about 6 minutes. Stir in chicken and mustard. Spoon into round 8-cup (2 L) baking dish; set aside. (Make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes; refrigerate, uncovered, until cold. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days; rewarm in microwave to continue.)

Biscuit Topping: In food processor, pulse together flour, baking powder and salt ; pulse in butter until crumbly. Drizzle in milk, pulsing just until soft sticky dough forms. Turn out onto floured surface; knead 10 times or until smooth. Pat out to fit top of baking dish. Cut into 8 wedges; arrange over chicken mixture.

Bake on rimmed baking sheet in 400°F (200°C) oven until biscuits are golden and no longer doughy on bottom, about 40 minutes.
