It really always comes back to comfort food, doesn’t it?
I like this recipe as it comes together pretty quickly. It uses canned soups which certainly can be helpful when short on time.
This is my take on Jenny’s recipe, you must check out her recipes, she takes the most amazing pictures.
I do increase the ranch from the original recipe. I love ranch and I think it adds an awesome flavor. However, my husband says that it is a bit too salty. Ranch is salty. I happen to love salt so this isn’t an issue with me. So keep in mind before adding extra salt besides the ranch if you are sensitive to salt.
Garlic Ranch Bacon Biscuit Topped Chicken Pot Pie
Adapted from Picky Palate
2 pounds chicken breast, cooked and shredded
2 packets of dry ranch dressing mix (or 5 – 6 tablespoons ranch powder)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 – 10 oz. cans cream of chicken soup, Healthy Request
1 – 10 oz. can cheddar cheese soup
1 cup 1% milk
2 – 16 oz. bags frozen veggies, I use carrots, peas, corn and green beans
1 small onion, chopped
3/4 pound crumbled turkey bacon pieces, already cooked
1/2 cup shredded colby jack cheese
6 canned homestyle biscuits (I used Pillsbury)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Place shredded cooked chicken in large bowl. Sprinkle in 3 tablespoons (or 1 packet) of ranch dressing, salt and pepper. Toss to combine seasonings.
In a large pan, saute onion for about 5 minutes until soft. Place soups and milk in pan and whisk until combined. Stir in mixed veggies and then shredded chicken. Transfer to a 9 x 13 inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Sprinkle bacon on top.
Open biscuits and cut each biscuit into 10 little triangle pieces. Place little pieces of biscuit over the top of chicken mixture until it’s all covered. Sprinkle biscuit dough with another packet of ranch or about 2 tbsp. of ranch. Sprinkle with garlic powder and pepper. Top with 1/2 cup cheese. Cover and bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Uncover and bake for another 25 minutes or until biscuits are cooked and nice and browned.
