Lazy Chicken Pot Pie Recipe

With the season changing and things getting cooler outside, I have been on the lookout for more hearty filling meals. I have been trying to switch up our meal plan because it fills like we are eating the same things over and over again, which is fine, but can get boring after a while. So I found a recipe called Chicken Pot Pie Bubble Up and altered it to make what I now like to call Lazy Chicken Pot Pie. My entire family loves it and any meal that can get my kiddos to eat their veggies is a mom win in my book!

Lazy Chicken Pot Pie Recipe

For this recipe, we add more chicken because protein really bulks up a meal and fills you up for longer, but you don't have to. You can also use canned chicken to make this even easier. You could use canned veggies as well, but we didn't enjoy the taste at all. We don't normally eat canned vegetables so that could be why. It could definitely make this meal even cheaper than it already is. I love how easy this Lazy Chicken Pot Pie Recipe is to make as well as inexpensive it is. Some have called it chicken pot pit bubble up, but that requires you to make the dough from scratch. I will include those directions below, but I like taking the easy way out whenever I can.

What You Need:
2 chicken breasts, shredded
8 oz. sour cream
1 can cream of chicken soup
bag of frozen veggies
1 can pie crusts or biscuits 

What You Do:
1. First you need to preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 
2. Then you need to make sure you shred the chicken. I tend to boil mine and then shred it with forks. I asked for a Kitchen Aid Mixer for Christmas, so hopefully I can make the chicken shredding process easier.
3. Add chicken, sour cream, cream of chicken soup, and frozen veggies together. You can add 1 & 1/2 cup cheese if you like, this is optional. We don't do that because I try and avoid too much dairy.
4. Spray 2 quart Pyrex dish with butter spray and add chicken mixture.
5. Add uncooked biscuit on top of the chicken mixture.
6. Pop pan in oven for 20-25 until bubbly and biscuits cooked mostly through.

If you want to make your own crust, here is what you do. This cuts the calories, but does make things a little more complicated, but honestly not terribly. This dough recipe only requires two ingredients. So here's what you do. Take 1/2 cup self rising flour and 1/2 cup 0% Greek yogurt then mix together. Put flour down on flat surface and kneed mixture until it turns into a dough ball. 

Let me know in the comments below if you try out this recipe. It is becoming a favorite of ours and has started in on the rotation.


  1. This is a great recipe for camping. We did this type of recipe after deep frying a turkey the day before.

  2. I love chicken pot pie. I used to buy them but they just don’t taste like the ones mom used to make. I will try the recipe and add my own garden veggies. Barbara
