Our favorite Chicken Pot Pie recipe filled with chicken, hard-boiled eggs, carrots and corn. The ultra-easy crust is made from biscuit mix. It’s a recipe the whole family loves!

It’s a go-to dinner recipe that is simple and loved by the entire family. Filled with veggies, and chicken and topped with Bisquick (just like our Pizza Bake and Taco Pie) – it’s easy and delicious.

Easy Chicken Pot Pie (1)

Bisquick makes it easy

I didn’t realize how much I loved chicken pot pie until my mom brought me some for dinner just after we had our second child. I was so grateful to have a warm meal that I didn’t have to cook myself. I was even more thankful after I took a bite of the meal and it tasted like HEAVEN!!

I’ve made my own version that’s a little more kid-friendly, and better yet, busy-mom-friendly. 😉 I say that because this version is very simplified—it has all the flavors of a classic pot pie, but without the time commitment and undesirable ingredients (AKA peas)!

The crust is actually made with a bisquick biscuit mix rather than a pie type of crust. It’s just as tasty and so much quicker!! Usually I cook up some shredded chickenfor this recipe, but you can also used canned chicken to make it go even quicker.

Customize your Pot Pie

You can add or omit any ingredients depending on what your family likes.Most Chicken Pot Pies have peas, and unfortunately, my family isn’t too fond of the small veggie. In fact, I really don’t like peas myself, so I make sure to omit them when I make this dish.

I also like to add hard-boiled eggs and corn because my kids love them and it makes the dish so tasty. Some other ingredients you could include are:

  • peas
  • onions
  • green beans
  • potatoes
  • celery
  • mushrooms

Regardless of what veggies you use, I suggest making sure the total amount adds up to 1 1/2 cups. You could also sub the chicken for turkey (especially after Thanksgiving!), or make it meatless and omit the chicken entirely.

Fresh, canned, or frozen vegetables?Again, totally up to you! I typically use canned corn, but fresh carrots. Whatever your preference is, or whatever you have on hand will work just fine.

You can find bags of mixed veggies in the freezer section that work great for this recipe. If you do decide to use frozen vegetables, thaw them before mixing into the filling.

A Great “Go-To” Recipe

Having simple, quick and delicious dinner ideas on hand are always my favorite. Fortunately, I almost ALWAYS have these ingredients handy, so this is a great “go-to” recipe on one of the many busy days we tend to have.

Making ahead/freezing:This pot pie also makes for a great make-ahead-and-freeze meal. If you’re planning on making as a freezer meal, I recommend using disposable pie dishes. You can make a couple at a time and freeze them so you have them on hand for a busy week night.

Make and bake as usual, let it cool completely, and cover with plastic wrap and a layer of tinfoil, or store in a freezer storage bag. It should keep well for a few months. When you’re ready to bake, there’s no need to thaw. Just add an extra 15-20 minutes or so until it’s totally cooked through.

Easy Chicken Pot Pie (2024)

FAQs

What is the sauce made of in chicken pot pie? ›

The sauce in chicken pot pie is typically a gravy. I use a seasoned white gravy made from scratch with flavor-building ingredients, chicken broth, and half-and-half.

How do you keep the bottom crust of chicken pot pie from getting soggy? ›

Brush the Bottom with Corn Syrup or Egg White

Coating the inside surface of the bottom crust will create a barrier to prevent sogginess.

What is the crust on a pot pie made of? ›

Combine flour and salt in large bowl; cut in shortening with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumb. Mix in enough cold water with fork until flour is moistened. Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a ball; flatten slightly.

Should I bake the bottom pie crust first? ›

Pre-baking is a must if you're looking for a flaky pie crust. It's especially helpful for recipes with a wet center. Recipes for most tarts, pies, and quiches call for pre-baking to ensure that the final product doesn't end up soggy.

Why do you not use a bottom crust on chicken pot pie? ›

I only gave my pot pie a top crust, because I feel like the bottom crust always gets soggy. If you do want to add a bottom crust, I suggest blind baking it. What does blind baking mean? It's when you bake your pie crust without a filling in order to crisp it up.

What is the difference between chicken pie and chicken pot pie? ›

In the South, some folks make a distinction between chicken pie and chicken pot pie. Chicken pies, also known as “chicken and pastry,” are the savory versions of fruit pies or cobblers, made with homemade crust and no, or very few, vegetables. Chicken pot pies typically include vegetables and have a top crust only.

How do I thicken my chicken pot pie filling? ›

A Thick and Creamy Filling

If it seems like it's not thickening up as fast as you like, scoop out about 1/4 cup of the sauce, whisk in a tablespoon or two of flour until no more lumps remain, and then whisk this mixture into the skillet.

Why is my chicken pot pie so liquidy? ›

A watery potpie may be the result of not cooking the filling for long enough or adding too much liquid to the filling. Another possible reason for the pie being watery is if you add watery vegetables like spinach or green beans to the filling rather than potatoes or carrots, which soak up liquid.

Can I use puff pastry instead of pie crust? ›

I normally use my traditional pie crust with this filling (sometimes with brown butter) but I HAD to try it with puff pastry. Turns out, it's amazing. The high butter content in puff pastry makes this crust melt in your mouth. Not to mention, I think it's stunning.

Should you poke holes in bottom of pie crust? ›

With docking, the holes allow steam to escape, so the crust should stay flat against the baking dish when it isn't held down by pie weights or a filling. Otherwise the crust can puff up, not only impacting appearance but also leaving you with less space for whatever filling you have planned.

What do you eat with chicken pot pie? ›

What to Serve With Chicken Pot Pie (25 Perfect Pairings)

Why do you put butter under a pie crust? ›

Fat helps make pie crust flaky. Getting the ratios right is very important to a flaky pastry as opposed to a tough pastry or crumbly pastry. Butter is highly preferred for flavor and how it helps brown which develops the caramelization that tastes so good.

What is the sauce made of in chicken pot pie without? ›

Here's how I make this comfort food classic. Yum! What is the sauce made of in chicken pot pie? Butter, flour, broth, a little heavy cream, and a splash of white wine, if that's your kind of thing.

What is pan pan sauce? ›

Pan sauces, as the name suggests, are made in the exact same pan you've used to sauté shrimp, sear a steak, or brown some onions. After cooking your meat, fish, or vegetables, those little leftover particles stuck to your pan's bottom—called the fond—transform into a silk smooth sauce in a process called deglazing.

How do you thicken pot pie sauce? ›

The tip I can offer is that when making the gravy, I use 1 tablespoon of corn starch or flour blended into 2 tablespoons of water for every two cups of chicken or turkey stock. After this is cooked and thickened — but not too much — and taken off the heat, I blend in a tablespoon or two of butter.

How do you thicken chicken pie sauce? ›

Use Flour and Water

Combine 2 tablespoons flour with every 1/4 cup cold water and whisk until smooth. Add the mixture to your sauce over medium heat, and continue to stir and cook until you've reached your desired consistency. Test with a spoon.
