Chicken pot pie is a classic comfort food that takes a long, long time to prepare. For a quick version, a store-bought rotisserie chicken worked perfectly for the meat in the filling. Frozen peas and carrots worked fine, but we sautéed fresh onion and celery for the richest-flavored filling. We made a flour-thickened sauce for the filling with a blend of canned chicken broth and heavy cream. Cooking the flour along with the vegetables removed its starchy flavor. Finally, cooking the filling and biscuits separately saved time.

Pillsbury Golden Homestyle biscuits were the winner of our taste test. Serve this pot pie right out of the skillet or transfer the mixture to a large pie plate and top with the baked biscuits.
