Step 1

In 12-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; sprinkle with salt, 1/2 teaspoon of the thyme and the pepper. Cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until chicken is browned.

Move chicken to 1 side of skillet. Add carrots and potatoes; cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir gravy into chicken and vegetables. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding peas during last 5 minutes of cook time, until chicken is no longer pink in center and vegetables are tender.

During last 15 minutes of cook time, heat oven to 400°F. Separate dough into 10 biscuits. Cut each into quarters; place in large bowl. Sprinkle garlic powder and remaining teaspoon thyme over dough; toss to coat. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until biscuit pieces are golden brown. Scatter biscuit pieces over top of cooked chicken mixture before serving.

If you have a bag of frozen mixed vegetables in the freezer, use 3 cups mixed vegetables, thawed, for the carrots and peas. After cooking the potatoes, add the mixed veggies with the chicken. Cubed hash brown potatoes are called “southern-style,” and shredded potatoes are called “country-style.” Either one can be used in this skillet pot pie.
