One recipe for chicken pot pie with a biscuit crust calls for one can of Pillsbury Grands biscuits. The crust is actually on top for this dish. The cook prepares the ingredients and puts them in 2-quart baking dish. The biscuits get arranged on the top so that they turn golden brown during baking.

Campbell's has a recipe for individual pot pies on a biscuit crust. In this case, the recipe calls for mixing cooked chicken, cream of chicken soup and frozen vegetables together. The cook presses individual canned biscuits into muffin pan cups, topping each with the above mixture and shredded cheddar cheese.

Another recipe calls for making the biscuit crust from scratch. The cook combines 1 cup of flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and a 1/4-teaspoon of salt in a bowl. The cook then cuts 3 tablespoon of butter into the dry mixture until it resembles small peas. 1/3-cup of milk is added to moisten the dough, which needs to be kneaded on a flour surface. This recipe is suitable for either a top or bottom crust. For both, the ingredients need to be doubled.
