  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup peas ( I used frozen that were thawed)

To Make the Dumplings:

  • 2/3 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/3 cup milk


  1. Start by dicing up your vegetables and putting them into a foil packet. Just place a foil sheet down on the counter, and place your vegetables into them, and then close the foil, so it seals on both ends.

  2. Then do the same thing with the chicken, place the chicken in a foil packet with 1 thyme stem, and place both packets into the air fryer.

  3. Now, set your temperature to 400 degrees F, for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, check and see if your chicken is cooked and vegetables are soft.

  4. Remove the vegetables, see how they are soft. Throw out the thyme stem.

  5. Then check on your chicken, make sure it's fully cooked, by using a meat thermometer, throw out the thyme.

  6. Now, in a skillet that is going to fit in your air fryer, dice up the chicken. Place the chicken in the skillet

  7. Pour the vegetables into the skillet, along with the chicken.

  8. Mix in the peas.

  9. Mix in the milk,  and 2 tablespoons of the flour, mix well.

  10. Set the skillet back in the air fryer at 400 degrees F, for 5 minutes, while you make the dumplings.

  11. To make the dumplings, biscuit dough, mix together the milk and flour, mix well. to combine.

  12. Mix until dough forms.

  13. Place drops of biscuit dough on top of the pot pie.

  14. Place the skillet back into the air fryer at 400 degrees F, for 7 minutes.
