Impossible Chicken and Broccoli Pie

I needed something quick to have to eat before I left for Tennessee.

My beloved late husband's older brother died this past week, and my daughter and I flew to Tennessee to be with our family, and to offer our support and comfort.   Marty had been on dialysis for two years, and actually died of an aneurysm and sepis, but also had renal failure.  

I used this pretty teapot that my sister gave me.

I also used my beautiful Shelly teacup, which looks so pretty with my heart shaped plates that my son bought at a garage sale, of which I have six.  

I love these plates and use them so often.  They say "handcrafted in Hungary" on the back.

Molly and I enjoyed a cup of tea together at our hotel.  It was bitter cold when we arrived in Tennessee and we needed the warmth. 

These are the daughters of my hubby's brothers.  On the left is Jaime, daughter of my youngest brother-in-law; center is Mandy, the daughter of my hubby's oldest brother, and who was such a wonderful caregiver to her Dad, and gave the most heartfelt speech;  next is Molly, my daughter.

Impossible Chicken and Broccoli Pie

Impossible Chicken and Broccoli Pie

These impossible pies are so easy and so tasty.


  • 2 cups Frozen Broccoli Cuts, thawed, drained and chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup cut-up cooked chicken
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (I used a teaspoon of dried minced onion)
  • 1/2 cup Bisquick
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled, optional


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray. 
  2. Sprinkle broccoli, 1 cup of the cheese, the chicken and onion in pie plate. In medium bowl, stir remaining ingredients with wire whisk or fork until blended. Pour into pie plate. 
  3. Bake 35 to 38 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake 1 to 2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Thank you for your visit!  xo


  1. I am so sorry for the loss of your dear brother-in-law, Kitty. It sounds as if he had many challenges to face these last couple of years. A lovely photo of the three girls, and of you and your daughter, Molly. Those heart shaped plates were a lucky find, and as for the Shelley teacup is so very sweet.

  2. Kitty, Your pie looks like the perfect comfort food and so easy and quick to whip up too. You know I adore your owl teapot and and your pretty teacups too! I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Rich's brother. So glad you were able to travel with Molly and be with family to celebrate his life. We've had the same below average freezing temps...brrrr! Hope you're warm now that you're home. ♥

  3. The sweet little owl teapot is adorable Kitty. It looks so pretty used with the teacup and saucer and heart plates. I am sorry for your loss. I am sure it was a comfort to your family for you and your daughter to go to TN to be with your family. It has been so cold here this month Stay warm..........

  4. This sounds like a great impossible pie Kitty, gonna tuck it away to try. I'm sorry to hear about your brother-in-law, but glad you had the chance to be with your family. Take care!

  5. That pie sounds delicious and like just the thing to hit the spot. I am sorry to read about your family's loss; I'm sure they were so touched that you and your daughter made the trip.

  6. I am so sorry to hear of your loss! So thankful you and Molly had safe travels and got to go together. It's funny you mentioned the chicken broccoli pie! I have some chicken breasts that I cooked and froze for future use that I was thinking about adding to a broccoli casserole that I make. I tried adding the chicken once before, and my family liked it real well. So, I think I may do that either today or tomorrow. Your post gave me the extra nudge! God bless you and comfort you and your family in the loss of your loved one.

  7. So glad you could be with your family. I know they appreciated you. Again, my sympathies. Your heart plate and teapot are wonderful seasonal items. I remember making a variation of that impossible pie years ago! Bisquik for the comfort food win!

I love the heart checked plate and tea cup!
