Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie
My family always appreciates a good Homemade Chicken Pot Pie so I set on a mission to find one that would work in my old… faithful… crockpot (aka Mrs. Potts).
This slow cooker chicken pot pie recipe includes very basic ingredients along with some shortcuts to help you save even more time. One time saving tip is using a rotisserie chicken. If you know you have a crazy week coming up, give yourself some grace, and grab at your next Costco or Sam's Club run.
This crock pot chicken pot pie could not be easier to whip together. I promise you're gonna love this one.

Chicken Pot Pie Ingredients:
- chicken breast
- poultry seasoning
- cream of chicken soup (or make your own Homemade Cream Soup)
- frozen mixed vegetables
- heavy cream
Here's how to make chicken pot pie:
This recipe is pretty much a fix-it-and-forget-it type of recipe – which is my FAVORITE!
- First, add chicken breasts (seasoned with a bit of salt and pepper).
- Next you'll add the seasonings. 1 teaspoon minced onion and 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning are all you need.
- Pour in 2 cans cream of chicken soup. If you want more control over the cream of soups be sure to check out our homemade cream soup recipe.
- The only chopping required is to cut up 3 medium size potatoes into about ¼-inch cubes. Easy peasy! Throw those potatoes in and give everything a good stir.
- Let this cook on low 6 hours.
- Remove chicken and shred and then add back in to the slow cooker. Toss in the frozen mixed veggies and 1/2 cup heavy cream. Cover and cook on low another half hour.
- Finally, you'll need about 8 biscuits. Whatever type of biscuits that melt your butter will work. Canned, frozen or homemade – even these 7-up biscuits would be great!
Serve the filling over hot split biscuits and be ready to wow your family. 🙂
What do you serve with Crock Pot Chicken Pot Pie?
I keep it super simple when I make this (I'm so boring, haha). I like to serve my favorite kale salad and maybe some baby carrots on the side. However, this homemade applesauce seems like it would be super yummy as well.
How do you thicken chicken pot pie in the crock pot?
If you find at the end of the day that your gravy isn't quite thick enough ~ don't fear ~ a cornstarch slurry is all you need. Mix together equal parts cornstarch and water. This is my go to hack and it works every time! You can try adding flour as well. Add a little at a time being careful to not add too much or it will get too thick.
Can you freeze slow cooker chicken pot pie?
If your family is like mine and just aren't wild about leftovers go ahead and freeze any remaining filling. Chicken pot pie is just about the perfect recipe for freezing (think about those rock hard chicken pot pies in the freezer section of the grocery store 😱)!
To freeze, pour filling in a large zip-top freezer bag and get out as much air as possible. Pop in the freezer for up to 4 months.
You'll thank yourself when you can pull this filling out on a busy day, bake some biscuits and have dinner on the table in a flash! This is also a wonderful recipe to take to a new mom or someone who needs some happy in the form of a meal.
