We love a good pot pie because it’s quick comfort food in which you can change up the flavors easily. In this recipe, the cookbook author Meg Dow puts a spin on the classic chicken pot pie by turning it into an Instant Pot chicken verde version. 

It’s made using super simple ingredients you’re likely to have in your fridge or pantry already like premade biscuits and rotisserie chicken or leftover roast poultry meat. The whole dish is made in the Instant Pot and the stew is thickened right at the end. You might also like these Instant Pot Recipes With Pantry Staples.
