Very good. I just cooked the chicken and gravy and potatoes in the skillet all at once with just a touch of thyme, then sprinkled only the garlic powder on whole biscuits (did not make them bite-sized), baked them, then let everyone make their own plate of biscuits with pot pie filling on top. I also added a few canned peas and carrots to the filling mix during the end of cooking time. This is so easy and quick.
