Puff Pastry Biscuits

Using puff pastry sheets to make biscuits for this delicious comforting Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Soup is quick and easy.

To make puff pastry biscuits, thaw out a puff pastry sheet before placing in the oven. Cut the sheet into 12 squares and place on a baking sheet with about 2 inches of distance between them.

To give the biscuits a golden and crisp top, create an egg wash, and brush the tops of the biscuits.

Bake them in the oven at 425° for about 10 to 12 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.

Sometimes the puff pastry will rise high and fall over. No worries, simply flip the top of the biscuit back over and press down gently to put the top back in place.

Easy and Delicious Comfort Meals

This Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Soup is perfect for cooler days but so are these other options for quick dinner ideas.

Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup is a classic that is traditionally made on the stovetop. It’s made in a pressure cooker and is just as flavorful.

Beef Stew is another classic that is made in either a crockpot or in a Dutch Oven. Making beef stew in the Instant Pot is not only delicious but it’s also much quicker than using other methods. I’m talking only 35 minutes of pressure cooking time!

Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff and is another family favorite during the cooler season and has flavorful tender bites of beef. The sauce is creamy and traditional.

Lasagna can me time consuming but it doesn’t have to be! Lazy lasagna has all of the flavors of a lasagna but make super quick and less dishes!

Hearty and Delicious Instant Pot Vegetable Beef Soup is one of my personal favorites. It’s absolutely easy to make and it’s ready in less than 30 minutes. It’s full of veggies and ground beef.

I used to make my cheeseburger soup in the slow cooker but I tried it once in the Instant Pot and never looked back.

If making own biscuits, do you just serve them with the soup or put into soup while cooking?

If you want dumplings, you can set the Instant Pot to saute and cook them after pressure cooking or you can make the biscuits and serve them with the soup. It's up to you! :)

Hi! I was wondering if this recipe uses fresh or frozen chicken? I didn’t see any clarification, and since the cook time (and amount of liquid) varies depending on if it’s fresh or frozen, I didn’t want to assume one way or another. Thanks in advance - I can’t wait to try this recipe!!

Hi Cassie! This uses fresh chicken but you most certainly can use frozen chicken if you wish. When I make this with frozen chicken I add 5 minutes to my pressure cooking time. I hope you enjoy!
