Ingredients for Making
- Butter: I like to use salted butter for slow cooker chicken pie, but unsalted butter or even olive oil will work fine.
- Onion: Use a white or yellow onion. To save time, you can also use frozen chopped onion.
- Chicken: I used boneless skinless chicken breast, but boneless chicken thighs will work as well. (After the holidays, sub in turkey to make turkey pot pie.)
- Garlic: Fresh or jarred minced garlic can both be used.
- Potatoes: Any kind of potato will work, but I like to use russet potatoes for this recipe.
- Chicken broth: Regular or low-sodium chicken broth both work well. I like to use homemade broth if I have it - it adds so much flavor.
- Cream of Chicken Soup & Cream of Celery Soup: These soups provide creaminess and flavor. You could also use cream of mushroom soup.
- Parsley: Fresh or dried works great. If you use dried, make sure you reduce the amount.
- Peas & Carrots: Frozen mixed vegetables are best for this recipe.
- Corn: Again, I recommend using frozen veggies for this recipe.
- Salt & Pepper, to taste: Use more or less depending on your preference.
- Biscuits: Homemade or store-bought biscuits can be used for topping slow cooker pot pie. Either way, you will want to cook them according to the package or recipe instructions.
Step by Step
First, start making this crock pot chicken pot pie with biscuits by melting your butter in a large skillet. Alternatively, if your slow cooker has a saute function (Like the Instant Pot Dutch Oven or Ninja Foodi Possible Cooker), use that.
Add the onion, and cook for 5 minutes.
Add the chicken cubes and cook for another 8 minutes.
Then add the garlic, and cook for 1 minute longer.
Transfer all of these ingredients to your slow cooker and add the diced potatoes. Give it a stir to combine.
Whisk together the chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, cream of celery soup, parsley and black pepper in a bowl.
Pour the mixture over the onions, meat, and potatoes in the slow cooker. Stir to combine.
Cook on low heat for 4 hours.
Add the peas, carrots, and corn and cook for an additional 1 hour. Taste and season well with salt & pepper.
Serve this easy crock pot chicken pot pie with biscuits and a sprinkle of parsley for garnish, if desired. Enjoy!
Tips & Tricks
- You can skip sauteing the onions, garlic, and chicken if you are short on time. I like this step, because it adds to the depth of flavor of the dish, but it isn't necessary.
- You can adjust the amounts and types of vegetables if you like. Celery and mushrooms are great options when added with the onion, and green beans are also commonly found in pot pie.
- Make this recipe gluten-free by using gluten free soups and biscuits. My cream of celery soup and gluten free cream of mushroom may be used in the chicken pot pie filling in place of the canned soup if you prefer.
- If you prefer a pie crust topping, make sure you are using an oven-safe slow cooker and add the crust at the end of the slow cooking time. Bake until it is golden brown. You could also transfer the slow cooker chicken pie filling to a casserole dish, top it with the pie crust, and then bake.
