A twist on the traditional pot pie for the Italian at heart. Black beans are optional, but I love the way they complement basil and onions.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a large casserole dish.

  • Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; cook and stir onions, garlic, oregano, and basil in the hot oil until onions are soft, 5 to 8 minutes. Stir chicken into onion mixture and cook, stirring often, until chicken is no longer pink on the outside, about 5 more minutes. Add diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and black beans. Bring mixture to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring often.

  • Stir mozzarella cheese into chicken mixture and pour into prepared casserole dish.

  • Combine baking mix with Parmesan cheese, almond milk, butter, and egg in a bowl to make a batter. Pour batter over chicken mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbling and crust has browned, 30 to 40 minutes.

I did almost everything this recipe said except I added a little more milk and used a mixer to beat the batter. This meal was a pleasent surprise. I took my first bite and was shocked at the amount of flavor. My husband also loved this meal and complimented my cooking the whole time he was eating it! This was something different fairly simple and really yummy. I definitely recommend adding the beans it seems odd but they do work really well in this. Give this recipe a shot it's SO good! Read More

I'm going to have to try this one again. The juice of the diced tomatoes made the dish more like soup than pot pie. It was tasty though. Read More

Excellent Chicken Parmesan. Crust was great. But I did change how the pie was made a bit. I substituted fresh mushrooms for the black beans and grilled them with the chicken onion and spices as the recipe suggested and placed the meat mixture on the bottom of the pie pan. I also made my own spicy marinara sauce and then poured it on top of the chicken. I layered the mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce and chicken and topped it off with the batter and cooked as directed. Thanks for the recipe Acahewowow. It's a keeper. Read More

This is great! I don't use the butter to try to save on calories and it is still yummy. I add some extra red pepper flakes because my husband and I love spicy! Can't recommend this enough..it also is great as leftovers. Read More

This was AMAZING!This was my first time ever using fresh mozzarella...and let's just say from now on I will ONLY buy fresh mozzarella cheese. I changed it up just a tad and only because I didn't have all the required ingredients. Instead of using the canned tomatoes the tomato paste onions basil garlic onions and oregano.... I just used used a jar or Spaghetti sauce (Ragu Sauteed Onion and Garlic). I also used milk instead of almond milk. And I took the advice of another reviewer and i layered the fresh mozzarella on top of the chicken mixture. I served with a side of linguine and peas. This will become my new way of making chicken Parmesan! Read More

I used regular milk instead of almond milk but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It needed more sauce seasoning and cheese... then it was 5 stars! Read More

It looked like an easy thing to put together. Left out the beans, but added a bunch of sautéed mushrooms and roasted plumb tomato pieces. Also since it was right after Christmas I used leftover Kosher Turkey Breast instead of Chicken. Everything else was pretty much the same. Came out looking pretty much like the picture. I made two sizes, one for my neighbor, who said "Yummy". Only thing I promise when I cook is that I am going to eat it also, and there is a really good chance it won't kill you. Read More

I wanted chicken pot pie (for Pi Day) and my friend wanted chicken parmesan. This was perfect. I only made some minor swaps because of what I had in the house. I will definitely make it again. Read More
