I don’t like to waste food. I feel bad about throwing out something that still has practical use, and also I’m sort of cheap, so I feel bad throwing away money. So when I looked in the fridge and saw the big pot of chicken noodle soup in the fridge, of which we had eaten a grand total of two bowls, it was clear I needed to do something. I decided to turn it into Chicken Noodle Pot Pie, with big fluffy Layered Buttery Chive Biscuits.

I didn’t have a go-to biscuit recipe as of yet, so I turned to a favorite source: Joy the Baker’s blog (her writing is sweet and hilarious and her baking and cooking fabulous).

Chicken Noodle Pot Pie and Buttery Layered Chive Biscuits

I’ll be honest, I only made the biscuits because I knew it would make Robby happy, and because making biscuits from scratch seems like a baking right of passage. I’ve made the canned kind before, but those I ate because they were there.

Turns out I’ve been doing biscuits wrong. These are hot buttery fluffy happy places. Yes, it’s because there are 12 tablespoons of butter in 8-12 biscuits (12 if you cut them like Joy the Baker, 8 if you’re me). So maybe they’re more of a treat than an everyday dish, but they’re worth every bite. I recommend baking the biscuits right on top of the pot pie. I did bake mine separately, though, and they came out delicious.

Also, you may have inferred that I do not own a biscuit cutter. You would be correct.
