Who doesn’t love a good chicken pot pie? That creamy filling, tender chicken, and flaky crust all come together for a hug in a dish.

No magic needed, just your hands and some basic ingredients!

Recipe Details

  • Time to make: About 1 hour
  • Level: Easy
  • Serves: 4 people


Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • 2 cups of cooked, shredded chicken (tip: leftovers work great!)
  • 1 package (about 16 oz) of frozen mixed vegetables (peas, carrots, corn)
  • 1 can (about 10.5 oz) of cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 ready-made pie crust (or homemade if you’re feeling adventurous!)

Preparation Steps

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). This gets it hot and ready for baking.
  2. Mix the filling. In a large bowl, combine the shredded chicken, frozen vegetables, cream of chicken soup, and chicken broth. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix it well.
  3. Fill the pie. Pour your chicken mixture into a pie dish. Then, lay the pie crust over the top. Seal the edges by pinching them together.
  4. Make it golden. Cut a few small slits in the top crust so steam can escape. This helps cook it evenly.
  5. Bake it. Put your pie in the oven and bake for about 30-40 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  6. Cool and serve. Let it cool for a few minutes before serving. This makes it easier to cut and serve.

Recipe Tips and Variations

  • Make it yours: Feel free to add or substitute ingredients based on what you love. Mushrooms, onions, or even potatoes can add a new twist.
  • Pie crust hack: If you’re short on time, using a ready-made pie crust is a lifesaver. For a homemade touch, brush the crust with an egg wash before baking for extra shine.

Serving Suggestions

This pot pie is a meal on its own, but it never hurts to pair it with a simple side. A green salad or some garlic bread can add a nice touch to your cozy meal.
