Now that it is getting cooler outside, comfort meals are making their way back into my kitchen. This Biscuit Chicken Pot Pie recipe is a one skillet comfort meal your whole family will love.

It is a savory dish that is thrown together in one skillet, which makes for easy clean up on busy nights. To save on time, I took a few short cuts such as using already cooked rotisserie chicken and canned biscuits. However, you can boil and shred two chicken breast, and make your own homemade biscuits if you would like.

Canned flaky biscuits create the perfect utensil for soaking up the delicious sauce.

Cooking the onions, celery, carrots and garlic will leave your whole house smelling like thanksgiving morning.

The sauce, created by making a roux and adding chicken broth and 1/2 and 1/2, will be thick and deliciously creamy.

Being able to cook the casserole in the same skillet makes for easy clean up, that I need on busy nights.

I hope you and your family find comfort in the delicious flavors and creamy texture of this Biscuit Chicken Pot Pie.
