This is just like chicken pot pie – but easier, faster and made in a skillet. If your nonstick pan has a plastic handle, wrap it in a double layer of foil to make it ovenproof.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 8 oz button mushrooms quartered
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thigh cut in bite-size pieces
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 2 ribs celery chopped
  • 2 carrots thinly sliced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 thyme
  • 1 cup frozen peas thawed
Topping:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cold unsalted butter cubed
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

Method

In 10-inch (25 cm) nonstick ovenproof skillet, heat oil and butter over medium-high heat; cook onion and mushrooms, stirring often, until mushrooms are lightly browned, 5 to 6 minutes.

Add chicken, garlic, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, until chicken is browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in flour; cook for 1 minute. Add broth and bring to boil, stirring.

Stir in celery, carrots, bay leaf and thyme; reduce heat, cover and simmer until thickened and vegetables are tender-crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in peas. Discard bay leaf and thyme sprig. Remove from heat and set aside.

Topping: In bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until crumbly. Drizzle in buttermilk, stirring just until soft sticky dough forms. Turn out onto floured surface; knead 6 times or just until smooth.

Roll out into 6-inch (15 cm) square; brush with 2 tsp more buttermilk. Cut into 6 biscuits. Arrange over chicken mixture.

Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until top is golden and filling is bubbly, 30 to 35 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
