Sally tells me it's a family favorite and was originally her Mom's recipe.

For this recipe, Sally has used store cupboard ingredients for convenience. Of course, when you have leftovers and you're looking to use them up, it's always handy to have a few cans of vegetables and soup in the cupboard. this will certainly help you to make a whole new dish using up leftovers and it will most definitely be delicious!

If you have leftover vegetables from your chicken or turkey dinner, feel free to use those instead of the canned vegetables. Keep to roughly the same quantities as stated in the ingredients and the proportions will work fine for you.

Prep Time

Cook Time

1 hour

Yield

3 -5 Persons

You will Need

An oven proof casserole dish 8.5 x 11 inches and at least 3 inches deep.

Ingredients

2-3 lbs / 1 -2 Kilo chicken breast – split with skin and bones
6 cups / 1.5 liters water / chicken broth (you will use this water to cook the chicken breasts – then use as your broth)
10 3/4 oz / 320 ml can Cream of chicken soup
10¾ oz / 320 ml can cream of celery soup
4oz / 60g Stick butter
2-3 Tablespoons flour
10-16 oz/ 280 g can sliced carrots (drained)
10-16 oz / 280 g can sliced peas (drained)
8 oz / 225 g package mushrooms (chopped or sliced)
1 small onion (finely chopped)
1 cup / 60 g celery (thinly sliced)
4-6 EGGS-hard boiled (thinly sliced)
1/2 -1 teaspoon SALT (more or less to your taste)
1/2 teaspoon white / red or black pepper

TOPPING INGREDIENTS

1 package biscuit mix (5½ ounces)
1/2 teaspoon salt (more or less to your taste)
1 cup / 230 ml (+/-) milk
1/2 stick / 2 oz / 60 g butter

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350F / 170 C / Gas 3
1. Cook chicken breasts in a large pot covering with water, lightly salt & pepper. Cook over medium high heat for 45-60 minutes. Remove from water to cool, skin and debone and chop into bite sized pieces.

2. Using a pan that will go into the oven use something like a Dutch Oven or an oven proof casserole dish 8.5 x 11 inches and at least 3 inches deep.  Start layering the chicken pot pie, using the chicken that you’ve just chopped.

3. Next add the entire can of drained carrots, peas, chopped/sliced mushrooms, chopped onion and the celery; in this order.

4. Hard boil the eggs for about 20 minutes, peel and thinly slice. (You can purchase an egg slicer very cheap and works great for this recipe.) Now layer on top of the other vegetables in your Dutch Oven.

5. In a medium sized sauce pan, melt butter, add flour and a dash of salt; mix well with a whisk. Gradually add and mix both cans of soup and adding one can at a time of the chicken broth/water; two cans usually does the trick. (Something else that I do is cook down the broth until it’s condensed into about this 2 can amount- it gives it a richer taste.)

Use a wire whisk to mix, add the salt and pepper mix well until you get a pourable soup and pour over the vegetables in your pot until the soup comes just to the bottom of the layered eggs.

I have a habit of overfilling these pans (kinda like a purse) and invariably it will over run the pan so a catch pan underneath covered with foil is a help.

6. Mix the biscuit mix with melted butter, salt and milk – again use the wire whisk to make a smooth pourable batter. Pour over the top – should cover almost completely.

7. Place Dutch Oven pan in oven and bake for approximately 1 hour . Top should be golden brown and bubbly.

    hi thanks for your quick reply. I am in Ireland and we don’t have something called biscuit mix. I did find the rest of the ingredients lol! I am using my phone and didn’t scroll over enough!

    1. A biscuit mix is relatively easy to make. You take plain all purpose flour, baking powder, butter, salt and sift them together to get the same ingredients as the “so-called biscuit” mix 1 cup of all purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon butter. Sift flour, add baking powder, salt to lighten, cut in butter with pastry cutter until evenly combined. Store in the refrigerator.

    1. Hi, I’m not quite sure what you are asking Jeanmae, can’t you read the ingredients for the topping? Here it is for you;
      1 package biscuit mix (5½ ounces)
      ½ teaspoon salt (more or less to your taste)
      1 cup / 230 ml (+/-) milk
      ½ stick / 2 oz / 60 g butter
