Homemade Chicken Pot Pie Recipe

There are certain dishes my kids associate with me, and this Homemade Chicken Pot Pie is one of them. In fact, it's in the top three most requested dishes in this family. It's second only to my fried chicken recipe. (I need to post that one soon.)

This is my favorite chicken pot pie recipe because it's not a wimpy pie. Most restaurant and grocery store pot pies are seriously lacking in chicken and vegetables. So disappointing!

That is not what you'll get with this pot pie. It's absolutely packed with chicken and vegetables. It's so good, you probably won't even have leftovers. Bake two.

Tips for making a Homemade Chicken Pot Pie

- Shredded chicken. You can purchase chicken breasts and shred it yourself. It's simple enough. You could even use your Instant Pot to make the task easier. If you're in a real hurry, buy a rotisserie chicken and shred it.

- Season to taste. My recipe lists a specific amount of poultry seasoning, but truth be known, I just eyeball it. As the chicken is cooking, I sprinkle my spices on until it looks good to me. You can do the same, but if you're not comfortable with that, just follow the instructions.

Can you freeze a Chicken Pot Pie?

Freezing a pot pie is a fantastic way to plan ahead, and it's easy!

To freeze an unbaked pot pie:

Assemble the pot pie in a pie pan, freeze it, then pop it out of the pie pan. Wrap it in aluminum foil, and then re-wrap it in freezer-quality plastic wrap. Freeze for up to 3 months. To cook it, bake at 375 degrees for about 50 minutes.

To freeze a baked pot pie

Cook according to directions. Let the pie cool for at least 30 minutes. At this point, it's safe to chill in the refrigerator if needed. Then wrap according to the directions above. To reheat it, bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes. (No need to thaw.)

What do you serve with Chicken Pot Pie?

Like beef stew, chicken pot pie is packed with meat and vegetables, so it's a great stand-alone meal. If you want to serve something else, I'd keep it light. Perhaps some fruit, or a salad.

  1. My husband is pie obsessed and I needed to make a nice pie ASAP - have made this and it was so delish - he wants it again and again. It is absolutely delicious!

    1. Thanks Ramona! I love this pie recipe, too. It's my 16-year-old's most-requested dish.

  2. Not gonna lie... my childhood memories of Chicken Pot Pie are the little frozen deals that are super cheap. I have since learned to make my own and they are a game changer. This recipe looks great and like some delicious comfort food.

    1. Benjamin, SAME HERE! All the pot pies were the mini frozen kind. My kids had never really had pot pie at all until I started making this one. It's a family favorite!

  3. Your crust looks delicious! I love the look of the filling as well- thick and creamy and not watery. I would love to try this with leftover turkey!

  4. That would be a great use for leftover turkey! The crust is amazing. Believe it or not, my youngest took over the crusts when she was 10 years old (16 now). She's so good at it! I'm hoping to get the crust recipe up here soon.

  5. Hey Michelle, I am from the south where there is a lot of chicken pot pie! This was great. I added mushrooms and it was super easy and very tasty. I will add you to my board on Pinterest.

    1. That sounds so good! I'll have to try it!
