- Pie crust – To make the pot pie crust, you’ll need Bisquick mix. You can use gluten-free Bisquick if you want to make a gluten-free pot pie casserole.

Helpful Tips for Making Chicken Pot Pie Casserole
- Avoid using too much filling.
To avoid a soggy pot pie, don’t over fill the dish with chicken mixture filling.
- Allow the the steam to escape.
Poking a few holes in the top of the crust before baking will let the steam escape and avoid a mushy or soggy crust.
- Let the casserole rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.
This ensures that the filling has time to set up and thicken properly.
Bisquick Pot Pie Recipe Variations
- Making Bisquick pot pie without condensed soup.
If you don’t want to use condensed soup, this is a great substitute! To replace 1 can of condensed cream of chicken soup, mix 2 teaspoons of cornstarch in a small bowl with 1/2 cup of cold chicken stock. Then, slowly stir in 4 ounces (1/2 cup) of heavy cream.
Or, instead of heavy cream, combine 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, 1/2 cup of chicken stock, and 1/2 cup of Half & Half or whole milk.

Chicken Pot Pie Casserole FAQ
Watery pot pie filling is often the result of either using too much liquid, or too much filling. If the casserole dish is too full, the liquid will leak out and make your crust soggy.
This Bisquick pot pie recipe uses cream of mushroom soup to thicken the filling. If you find that your filling is still not thick enough, a cornstarch slurry will help. Simply combine a tablespoon of cornstarch and a tablespoon of very cold water, then stir it into the filling.
Our recipe for Bisquick chicken pot pie calls for baking it at 400°F., for 30 minutes. The filling should be bubbling and the topping should be golden brown.
If the crust is becoming too dark, just cover it loosely with aluminum foil for the remaining bake time.
There are plenty of veggies packed inside of this impossibly easy chicken pot pie, so it isn’t necessary to serve additional vegetables. However, kale salad and mashed potatoes are delicious side dishes for pot pie casserole.
