Hurry up Chicken Pie - A Highly Reviewed Paula Deen's Recipe

This is always me rushing my boy to do his everyday tasks!

This is always me rushing myself to cook dinner after work and picking my boy after school!

This is me assembling the ingredients of this pie! Believe me! I can do this in flash even with all these photo taking! To do it quick, I have prepared all ingredients ahead before baking this pie.

Now, this is me telling this chicken pie to cook quickly! - LOL!

I wasn't 100% sure what I was expecting before baking this pie. All I knew that this recipe by Paula Deen is highly rated at Food Network with lots of great reviews. I knew that it is going to be an easy pie to prepare but didn't expect the pie to require more than 30 minutes to bake. Best of all, I didn't expect it to be so delicious! The biscuit topping of the pie is moist and fluffy in its mid layer and golden and crunchy on its outer layer. The chicken filling is like the thicker version of soup being very moist and flavoursome to eat.

Good that I didn't have to say "HURRY UP!!!" to my boy to finish his dinner... LOL!

Made with my Homemade Biscuit Mix
The ingredients
I am NOT advertising for Campbell's but these are always my classic favourites.
Here I go... Hurry up and assemble everything!
This is what I did to give the pie a crunchy biscuit topping.
When the biscuit topping started to brown, I took it out from the oven and drizzle with oil.
Continue to bake until nice golden brown and crusty.

I wasn't expect this pie to be so delicious!

Here's the recipe from Food Network
(with my modification in blue)

Serves 4-6
2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
2 hard-boiled eggs, sliced
1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
(I used 1 carrot, cut into small dices)
1/2 cup frozen green peas
(replace with corn kernels)
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can cream of chicken soup
(I used Campbell's cream of mushroom, 420g)
1 cup chicken stock
Salt and pepper, optional
1 1/2 cups instant biscuit mix (250g, see below)
1 cup milk
1 stick melted butter (replace with 60g soft butter and 2 tbsp rice bran oil)

Preheat oven to 350°F or 160°C fan forced.

In a greased 2-quart (or 2-liters) casserole (I didn't grease mine), layer the chicken, eggs, carrots, and peas (or corns). Mix the soup, chicken stock, and season with salt and pepper, if desired. Pour over the layers. Stir together the biscuit mix (plus 60g butter) and milk, and pour this over the casserole. Drizzle butter (rice bran oil) over the topping (I did this step when the topping begin to brown at about 40 mins of bake). Bake until the topping is golden brown, 30 to 40 mins but mine took 60 mins in total.

My Homemade Biscuit Mix inspired and mostly adapted from Joy of Baking

Makes 250g
240g unbleached self raising flour
(add 2 tsp baking powder if you are using all-purpose flour)
1/2 tsp salt
10g sugar

Weigh out the above ingredients. Combine all in a clean container. Store at room temperature until ready to use.

Happy Baking

  4. Zoe, this pie comes with boiled egg, an extra boost of protein! I'm so lazy lately. Haven't been baking for 2 weeks now. My oven must be feeling so lonely now, haha!

  5. This is awesome! I love how you've cut up your own carrot insead of using the frozen stuff! It's not that bad but I always prefer fresh vegs! I love how this dish pie is sooo full of filling instead of so much pastry if you were to pie a pie outside! Love the recipe!

  14. Hi Zoe you are one clever mama! I saw this recipe, thought about making it but decided not to because it would have been a nightmare trying to get hold of the biscuit mix. Where did I not think to make my own. DUH!! :D

  18. Wow..this looks amazing, Zoe! I feel like moving in next door so I can just pop over for a bite ^.^

  19. Hi Zoe,
    Wish I could make this pie appear on my dining table, hurry up, right now! LOL! I like the name of the recipe, makes me can't wait to dig right in! I can see why you do not need to remind your son to Hurry Up when eating this pie! I bet he can say, "Got anymore?" even faster than you could say "Hurry Up"! Haha! Looks really good!

  20. Can I ask if it can be frozen once it is cooked? Then how do I reheat?

    1. Hi Emy,

      We do have some leftover and I have kept it in our freezer. As hard boiled eggs don't freeze very well, please try to remove them from this dish before freezing. To reheat, thaw the pie in the fridge overnight and place it in the oven until it is warm and nice to eat again. If the top is browning too fast and the bottom is still cold, cover the pie with foil and bake until the heat is well distributed throughout the whole pie.



  21. Sometimes it's nice to have a meal with a long and slow preparation, allowing you time to relax and detach. Other times a hurry up meal is exactly what's needed.

  22. i am just back 2 days i really got to hurry up and visit the links :S
