Chicken Pie with a Biscuit Crust

King Arthur Flour

Do you think making chicken pie is a long, arduous process? Think again. A few simple steps are all that stand between you and a family-sized pan of luscious chicken and vegetables in cream sauce, topped with tender biscuits. And, don’t think that the word “pie” automatically means getting out the rolling pin. In this case, you’re making a biscuit topping, which can simply be patted into a rectangle before cutting. (Feel free to smooth it out with your trusty rolling pin, though, if you just can’t resist!)
