Bubble Up Chicken Pot Pie Easy Family Dinner Recipe

Easy Family Dinner Recipes

I’ll be the first to admit that grocery shopping isn’t my favorite thing to do so I like to make my shopping trips quick and keep my shopping list short. I also like to stick to a budget so I’m always on the lookout for cheap family dinner recipes.  So, today I’m sharing FIVE $10 dinner recipes that the entire family will love.

Monday – Chicken Pot Pie

Bubble Up Chicken Pot Pie $10 Meal

One thing I put on our weekly grocery list is a rotisserie chicken.  It can be used for so many recipes throughout the week.  This week I used one rotisserie chicken for two dinners. This Bubble Up Chicken Pot Pie recipe is always a winner in our house.  And, it only requires 6 ingredients.  This is my kind of recipe!

Just mix the ingredients together, add to a baking dish and pop it in the oven.  The key to making sure the biscuits cook all the way through is to heat the pot pie filling in the oven first before adding the cut up biscuits.  Just a little trick I figured out.


Bubble Up Chicken Pot Pie


  • 1 1/2 cups cooked chicken
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag frozen vegetables
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 can (16.3 ounce) refrigerated biscuits


  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly spray 9 x 9 baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In large bowl, stir together chicken, cream of chicken soup with herbs, frozen vegetables and milk; mix until combined. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into baking dish and spread into even layer.
  3. Bake in oven for 15 minutes.
  4. Cut each biscuit into quarters. Spread biscuit pieces evenly over chicken mixture. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until biscuit pieces are thoroughly baked and center of casserole is bubbly. If biscuits aren’t baked through flip pieces over and bake for an addition 5-10 minutes.

Wednesday – One Pot Cheesy Sausage Pasta Skillet

Connor has baseball practice on Wednesday so one pot meals are the best for these busy nights.  This is one of my favorite one pot meals and makes a ton.  I usually have enough to freeze for a whole other dinner.  So technically you can make two dinners for $10.  This is what I call winning!

Thursday – Brinner

We love having breakfast for dinner.  Eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, and cinnamon rolls for dessert.  All for less than $10. YUM!
