Thrown Together Chicken Pot Pie/Chicken 'n Dumplings

We desperately need to do some grocery shopping. I scraped together some stuff we have in our fridge and cupboards and came up with this super easy version of either chicken and biscuits or pot pie. You choose.

I based it on a recipe I found online, but made my own version. It takes about 45 minutes to an hour to make this. Enjoy.

1 lb chicken breast, cut into cubes.
1 can of cream of chicken soup
Half bag of frozen corn (you could used mixed veggies, too, but corn was all I had)
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 cup of sour cream
1/2 cup of chicken broth
1 can of your favorite biscuits (I used the reduced fat Grands)
salt, peper, garlic, and other spices to taste


Heat a deep saucepan over medium heat. Add 1tbs vegetable oil and cook the chicken cubes until they are brown. Add chicken broth and simmer until almost all liquid is absorbed. Add corn and cook for about 5 minutes, or until corn is tender.
Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl until smooth. Pour into pan and increase heat to high. Mix thoroughly and bring to a boil. You'll want to cook this until it becomes thick, about 10 minutes.

While your chicken mixture is cooking, separate four of the 8 biscuits and press four of them into the bottom of a greased deep dish pie plate (or whatever else you have on hand - I used a roasting pan because it was all I had) and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven (biscuits will be slightly doughy) and pour chicken and corn mixture on top of baked biscuits. Use the remaining four biscuits to top the chicken mixture. Place back into oven for another 15 minutes. Cook until biscuits are brown on top.
