How to Make Chicken Pot Pie

With a little prep work, this chicken pot pie recipe is super easy to make using refrigerated pie crusts! Or skip the crust completely and try making chicken pot pie soup.

Prep the Filling:

  1. Dice the potato and boil in water until it is soft, drain and set aside.
  2. Saute the diced onion in butter and add flour and seasonings. Cook until the onion is soft and golden and the flour has thickened into a roux.
  3. Whisk in the broth and milk until the sauce is smooth and there are no lumps.
  4. Add cooked chicken, frozen vegetables and cooked potatoes.

Assemble the Pie: Line a greased, deep pie plate with one thawed pie crust before pouring it full of the creamy chicken pot pie filling!

  1. Gently spoon the chicken and vegetable mixture into the pie crust and top with the second crust.
  2. Crimp the edges around the pie and cut slits in a decorative pattern to allow the steam to escape.
  3. Optional – you can make a simple egg wash by scrambling a raw egg and brushing it over the top to help seal the edges and give it a shiny, golden color once it’s baked. This is totally optional but it really does look amazing!
  4. Bake until the top is golden brown and remove from the oven. Let it rest 15 minutes before serving.

What Goes With Chicken Pot Pie?

This easy homemade chicken pie is definitely an entire meal unto itself with all the meat, veggies, and starchy crust all in one pan! But a cold salad on the side with a tangy vinaigrette makes a cool and crunchy side dish and really rounds out this wholesome family dinner!

How To Reheat Chicken Pot Pie

Reheating this pie is super easy! Just cover it in tin foil and put it in a preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or a microwave.  Be sure to adjust the seasonings with extra salt and pepper and it’s good to go!
