This Chicken Pot Pie Salad is a cross between comfort chicken pot pie and shredded chicken salad, complete with tarragon dressing and everything biscuits!
Serves: 6 servings
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 medium stalks of celery, thinly sliced
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled, cut in half and thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 cups shredded chicken, both white and dark meat
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 16 ounces butter lettuce mix
  • 6 biscuits (store-bought or homemade)
  • Zest and juice of 1 large lemon
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, grated
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ¾ cup olive oil or canola oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. Set a large skillet over medium heat with the butter. Once melted, add in the onion and garlic and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in the celery and carrots and season with a pinch of salt and pepper and the thyme. Cook, stirring often, until the vegetables have softened, about 5 to 8 minutes. Add the chicken and peas and cook for a minute or two just to warm through. Remove from the heat, transfer to a large bowl and set aside.
  2. To make the dressing, whisk together all of the ingredients (except for the oil) in a large measuring cup. Slowly stream in the oil while whisking until the dressing comes together in a homogenous mixture. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper according to your tastes. Pour half of the dressing over the chicken mixture and toss to combine. You'll have leftover dressing for topping later on or if you make ahead of time, you can add more to the salad, as it'll dry up a bit in the fridge.
  3. Arrange the butter lettuce onto a large platter or individual plates. Top with the chicken salad and drizzle each with some of the leftover dressing. Serve with the biscuits and enjoy!
