Why This Recipe Works

One of the meals that is most memorable from childhood is traditional, comforting chicken pot pie. I remember my stepmom pulling hot savory pot pies out of the oven on busy nights and just totally devouring them when they were still steaming hot and bubbling with deliciousness.

Is there a better comfort food on the planet? A perfectly baked crust that holds a savory, hot, delicious secret inside? Nothing could be better!

For this recipe, I wanted to transform the classic American dinner into an easy crock pot meal. Let the insides cook while you work (or clean, or shop or take care of the kiddos) and top it off with an easily-baked biscuit! It’s a comforting dream come true!

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Recipe (3)
  • Chicken – Use boneless skinless chicken breasts or chicken thighs in place of breasts if you’re wanting more of a dark meat pot pie. Cooking hack: omit chicken breasts and add meat pulled from a Rotisserie chicken 30 minutes before cook time is up.
  • Chicken stock – Chicken broth and chicken stock can be used interchangeably in this recipe. For a thicker end result, either cut the amount of stock used in half or omit it entirely.
  • Veggies – Replace the peas and corn with frozen mixed vegetables or another combination of veggies, if desired.
  • Biscuits – Any variety of refrigerated biscuits works great as a topper for this recipe.

Recipe Notes

  • If you have the time, I always recommend cooking this low and slow!
  • Additional spices may be added, such as garlic powder, cayenne pepper or paprika.
  • Add poultry seasoning to the chicken before placing it into the crock pot for an extra punch of flavor.
  • This is a great recipe to serve at a party and it also works great as a week night dinner.
  • I did not use heavy cream in this recipe in order to keep it on the healthy side. For a creamier recipe, add 1/2 to 1 cup of heavy whipping cream at the same time the peas and corn are added.
  • Replace the chicken broth with bouillon cubes, if desired. 1 cup of stock = 1 bouillon cube mixed into 1 cup of boiling water.
  • Top the mixture with a sprinkling ground black pepper just before serving.

How To Thicken Chicken Pot Pie

In order to thicken this classic meal, either cut the amount of stock or broth used in half or omit it entirely. Additionally, you can opt to add a cornstarch slurry to the mixture while cooking.

Whisk 1 to 2 teaspoons of corn starch into cold water until smooth. Gradually add to the mixture to thicken.

For a more creamy chicken pot pie, add a can of cream of mushroom soup to the mixture.

Can I Use Shredded Meat From a Rotisserie Chicken For This Recipe

Skip adding the chicken to the crock pot in the beginning and instead add meat that is already cooked and pulled from a Rotisserie chicken toward the end, when the peas and corn are added. This will save you a few minutes of effort!
