Easy Chicken Pot Pie

I don’t know what the weather in your neck of the woods is doing, but after a week of near summer-like temperatures, it was down right cold and damp today. It’s the kind of weather that makes me crave a warm, hearty meal straight from the oven.

Easy Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie had been one of my favorite comfort foods since I was a child. This Pot Pie is loaded with shredded chicken, potatoes, carrots, and peas.

Double Pie Crust

With a layer of pie crust on the bottom and one on top, you’ll definitely get your pie crust fix.

If you serve this pot pie with a large salad, you can easily get two meals out of it for a family of four. I like to put one of these together on a Sunday afternoon and have leftovers on Monday or Tuesday. If you’re not ready to bake it right away, you can refrigerate it for a few hours covered in plastic wrap.

Our local market usually has rotisserie chickens on sale on Sundays, making this a very economical meal.

What Makes This Pot Pie So Easy?

  • Rotisserie Chicken– I LOVE using rotisserie chicken as a shortcut in recipes.
  • Refrigerated Pie Crust- I love the ease and convenience of refrigerated pie crust. If you really wanted a homemade pie crust, you could whip one up. Just be sure to make enough to roll out 2 pie crusts.

Thick Creamy Filling

I like a really thick and hearty pot pie so I make my filling so thick it holds its shape when cut. If you like a looser filling, just add a little extra milk or chicken broth.

There’s no condensed soup in this filling. It’s completely made from scratch but totally easy. Full of lots of chicken, peas, carrots, and potato.

Chicken Pot Pie is a wonderfully delicious and comforting meal the whole family will enjoy! One bite and you’ll never want a frozen one again.

How To Store

Leftover pot pie can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.

Can Uncooked Pot Pie Be Frozen?

Yes! Go ahead and fully assemble it, but hold off on the egg wash. Wrap it well so it doesn’t get freezer burned. Be sure to assmeble it in a freezer-safe pie pan if you plan on freezing it.

Add an extra 15 to 20 minutes to the baking time. If the crust starts to get too brown, cover it with foil.

264 thoughts on “Easy Chicken Pot Pie”

  1. This is the best chicken pot pie i made in 50 years of cooking. Was real easy to make too. I’ve made is several times now and everyone loves it.

  2. I am now making this once every week or two since my husband loves it so much. I make them as four individual pot pies and they come out perfectly. (one is plenty for two people unless someone has a good appetite!) You can also freeze them after they’re cooked, thaw them & heat a little in the microwave, then finish them off in the oven. Excellent recipe.

  3. If you freeze a pot pie, do you freeze before or after baking? Then what are the directions to reheat?

  4. Excellent although I made a couple adjustments – no potatoes, frozen peas and carrots, and I add some pearl onions! Delicious!

  5. Y’all, I made this vegetarian— just left out the chicken, swapped in veggie broth, and increased the veggies: 1.5 cups potatoes, 1 cup carrots, 1.5 cups peas. It. Was. Divine. I have been a vegetarian for 8 years and chicken pot pie was one of the only things I ever missed. I can’t tell you how happy I am with how satisfying this was – didn’t taste like it was “missing” anything. Thank you for such a foolproof recipe!!! Will be making again SOON. Xo

  6. My family loved it. I made the crust with a recipe that asked for 1 1/2 c butter. It was delicious with this combination.

    We love this recipe! I always make two pot pies, and it takes more than 30 minutes, but it is well worth it.

  8. My whole family loved this so much, they were praising me for a half hour after dinner and planning when I should make it again.
    Super easy and delicious!

  9. Wonderful flavor and easy to put together! I used Turkey instead of chicken (all I had) and so yummy. CGardner
