Can I freeze this?
Freezer in small containers for up to 3 months.
Thaw in the fridge before needing to use.
Warm in microwave or stovetop. Make fresh biscuits for topping.
Why is my filling runny?This recipe should produce a thick pot pie filling. If your filling is thin, your chicken must have been extra juicy. You can thicken this by making a corn starch slurry by mixing 2 tablespoons of cold water with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, stir into the cooked filling and cook for 15 more minutes.Can I use frozen vegetables?Yes, you can use one 12-ounce bag of frozen mixed vegetables instead of chopping your own. These often have corn, and green beans in them, though still great in this recipe.Nutritional information is WITHOUT biscuits.
