What is a Pot Pie?

A pot pie is a savory pie filled with meat (usually chicken) and vegetables in a gravy-like sauce. Classic pot pies are made with a top and bottom pie crust. Pot Pies are an excellent way to re-purpose leftover cooked chicken, turkey, or even ham.

Ingredients for Chicken Pot Pie:

A chicken pot pie is a meal in itself – loaded with vegetables and protein. The high quality ingredients and generous filling really differentiates this from the ones you’ll find in the freezer section. Once you try homemade, there’s no going back. This also requires simple ingredients:

  • Double Pie Crust – You’ll need two pie disks for the top and bottom.
  • Chicken – Use shredded cooked chicken from a rotisserie chicken or cook your own chicken breasts.
  • Butter & Flour – These make the roux or base for the gravy sauce
  • Onion, Carrots, Mushrooms, & Peas – this is loaded with vegetables
  • Garlic and Parsley – These aromatics and simple salt and pepper balance this savory pie.
  • Chicken Stock & Cream – form the creamy gravy sauce

The Best Crust for Chicken Pot Pie:

In a pinch, this recipe will work with a store-bought double pie crust, but we highly recommend using a homemade all-butter Pie Crust. It is 5 ingredients (including water and salt) and takes just minutes to make. You can also make it a couple of days ahead.

Our homemade crust rolls out easily and it never gets soggy when baked. The bottom stays crisp without needing to pre-bake. We use this same pie crust for savory and sweet pies like Apple Pie, our juicy Cherry Pie and Blueberry Pie.

How to Make Chicken Pot Pie:

A homemade Chicken Pot Pie is easier and takes less time than you think! We use a deep 9″ pie dish for this recipe.

  1. Sautee vegetables in 6 Tbsp of butter until soft.
  2. Add mushrooms and garlic and saute 5 min.
  3. Add cream and broth and simmer until thickened.
  4. Stir in chicken, peas, and parsley and remove from heat.
  5. Roll out pie crust to 12″ and transfer to a pie pan.
  6. Add Filling into crust and cover with the second crust.
  7. Crimp edges, cut slits, brush with egg wash and bake.

Make-Ahead Tip: Chicken pot pie reheats beautifully. Just warm it in the microwave until heated through. The sauce stays creamy without separating and it tastes just as good as the day you made it!

Common Questions:

Can I substitute the chicken?

You can use a different protein like leftover roast turkey for a turkey pot pie or even diced baked ham for ham pot pie!

Can I use a store-bought crust?

To save time, you can substitute a store-bought crust, just be sure to get a double pie crust for the top and bottom and thaw according to package instructions.

Can I make this in a different dish?

You can use a 9″ diameter cast iron skillet, or even a 9″ round cake pan or springform pan.

Can I freeze chicken pot pie?

To freeze a pot pie, cover with foil and freeze up to 2 months. Remove from the freezer 30 minutes before baking (do not thaw). Bake covered with foil for an extra 25-30 minutes at 425˚F then remove foil and bake as directed in the recipe.

How to tell when a pie is done?

Use an instant-read thermometer to test for doneness. The internal temperature of your pie should reach 165˚F.

How to prevent pie from browning?

It helps to Pat down the edges so they don’t rise above the center of the pie. If your pie is browning too quickly, cover it with a pie shield. You can make one by cutting a 4″ circle from the center of a square sheet of foil. Place the pie shield loosely over the pie.

What to serve with Chicken Pot Pie:

Because pot pies are so hearty and full of protein, we love to serve this as a main course paired with Mashed Potatoes, soft Dinner Rolls and simple vegetable sides:

Ingredients

  • 1 homemade pie crust, (2 disks)
  • 4 cups cooked chicken, shredded*
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 medium yellow onion, (1 cup chopped)
  • 2 medium carrots, (1 cup) thinly sliced
  • 8 oz white or brown mushrooms, (stems discarded), sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tsp fine sea salt, or to taste, plus kosher salt to garnish
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, plus more to garnish
  • 1 cup frozen peas, do not thaw
  • 1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped, plus more to garnish
  • 1 egg, beaten for egg wash

Instructions

  1. In a dutch oven or pot, melt 6 Tbsp butter. Add diced onions and carrots and saute 8 minutes over medium heat until soft.

  2. Add sliced mushrooms and minced garlic and saute another 5 minutes until mushrooms are softened.
  3. Add 1/3 cup flour and stir constantly for 2 minutes. Add chicken stock, and 1/2 cup heavy cream then bring to a simmer and cook 1 minute or until mixture is a thick gravy consistency. Add 2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, or season to taste. It should be well-seasoned.

  4. Add shredded cooked chicken, frozen peas, and 1/4 cup parsley. Stir to combine then remove from heat and cool slightly while you roll out the crusts. Roll 1 chilled pie crust disk into a 12” diameter circle. Carefully transfer it into a 9” pie dish. Spoon the pie filling over the bottom crust.

  5. Roll the second disk of pie dough into a 10” diameter circle and place over the pie filling. Fold the excess dough behind the bottom crust then crimp the pie crusts together to seal. Use a sharp paring knife to cut 5 small slits in the top to allow steam to escape. Brush the top of the crust with the beaten egg and sprinkle lightly with coarse salt and pepper.

  6. Bake at 425˚F for 30-35 minutes or until top crust is golden brown. If edges are browning too fast, cover with a pie shield or make a shield by cutting a 4” diameter circle from the center of a sheet of foil and placing that over the pie. Once out of the oven, rest for 15 minutes to cool slightly before slicing.

Recipe Notes

*Use leftover shredded rotisserie chicken (light or dark meat), or cook and shred 2 large chicken breasts to get 4 cups shredded chicken.

      May 29, 2022

      I always use heavy cream but a light cream or half and half might work if you add a little more flour and butter to help it thicken up properly.

      You can add a teaspoon of vinegar or lemon juice to your dairy free milk, let sit for about 5 minutes, it will look like it’s starting to curdle a bit. This basically makes like a dairy free buttermilk. I use it as a heavy cream replacement all the time for most recipes. Personally we prefer almond milk because it adds the least flavor profile and combines well because of the fat content.

    I love this chicken pot pie, but it takes a lot longer than 1 hour 10 minutes to make. It takes that long AFTER you’ve prepped everything. Prep takes some time. You have to make the crust, chop onions, mushrooms, carrots, chicken and measure out all other ingredients. After you’re finished with all of them, THEN it takes the 1 hour 10 minutes.

    (To keep it a little lighter I used only a crust on top, not on the bottom) Delicious!

    This chicken pot pie was the first one I’ve ever made. I even made the crust from scratch using Martha Stewart’s recipe(the best flakey & buttery crust). The pot pie was easy to make and was absolutely delicious. I wanted to add a picture but can’t find how to do that.

    Made your chicken pot pie for Pi Day using your buttery pie crust, too. The whole thing was delicious. I seasoned it with some garlic and onion powder but that was the only alteration. I used a rotisserie chicken and it all came together easily. I made the crust and the filling one day ahead. On the day of, I gently warmed the filling before adding it to the pie crust and baking.
    We all loved it. This is a keeper. Thanks for a great, easy recipe.

    Whoa! Must be a typo on the salt! I couldn’t thin it back even with a quadruple batch. Guessing it should have been 1/2 tsp instead of 2 tsp. Otherwise great.

      Hi Craig, 2 tsp of salt is correct for that amount of filling but it can depend on the saltiness of ingredients added and I always recommend salting to taste since some people like more or less salt.

    OMG, this pie was a real winner. So delicious! Not only was the filling tasty and wholesome but the buttery pastry was perfect. I made the pastry the day before and as there was just two of us, I only used half of the pastry. Ended up with enough pie for two nights. Also, I now have extra pastry for another pie in my freezer. Thank you Natasha for an awesome recipe.

    Might I give this 6 stars? I’ve been making Chicken Pot Pies on and off over the years, and this is by parsecs, the best ever! I used part of a Costco rotisserie chicken for the meat and it was excellent. The only change I made was to the outstanding crust recipe. I used a 50/50 mix of water and vodka. I do that with my dessert pies as well, because it makes the crust just a bit more flakey and tender. Overall an outstanding meal that my picky spousal unit adored. Thank you.

    I went outside the box after hearing the reviews. The filling was easy and delic. I had never made a pie dough so you can just imagine… in spite of your wonderful video I struggled with knowing when the dough was ready to roll out. I think I didn’t add enough water because as I rolled it the disc was creaking around the edge. Sheer determination and piecing together I eventually got two discs. Also, after its been refrigerated how long should it sit out before you roll ?In spite of the craziness It was pretty and even eatable. It took forever to brow. Is that because I tortured it. The crust actually tasted better when reheated much flakier. Love your comments.

    I made it gluten free and no one could tell the difference. It is simply delicious!! A MUST HAVE!

    I have a GREAT tip for you and your readers::
    For years, I didn’t make homemade crust because I get annoyed cubing cold butter.
    But I stole from another recipe the idea to GRATE the frozen butter. YES, use a standard cheese grater!
    It is SO easy and because the pieces are all the same size, cutting in with the pastry knife is QUICK!!

      That’s just awesome, Joe! To freeze a pot pie, cover with foil and freeze for up to 2 months. Remove from the freezer 30 minutes before baking (do not thaw). Bake covered with foil for an extra 25-30 minutes at 425˚F, then remove foil and bake as directed in the recipe. I hope this helps! I haven’t tried freezing a cooked pie, but it should be good for a few days in the fridge.

    I made this today with what I had on-hand —– 2 cups of leftover rotisserie chicken, 1 small, boneless, skinless chicken breast that I boiled until done and chopped, a pre-boiled yukon gold potato to make up the difference, a six-ounce jar of mushrooms (not fresh) and store-bought pie crusts.

    Out. Of. This WORLD DELICIOUS

    The fresh parsley (which I ALWAYS have on-hand) added just the right amount of brightness to this beautiful, savory pie!

    I can hardly wait to make it again using your pie crust recipe!

    Additionally, this was a really FUN dish to make.

    Your chicken pot pie tastes great but is too runny. Better consistency with less chicken broth—1 3/4 cup chicken broth instead of 2 cups, and more cream—2/3 instead of 1/2 cup. Would help to remind clients that the consistency of the filling in the pot when you’ve made it will be the same consistency you get in the finished pie.

      With respect, I do not agree that the sauce is too runny. Mine turned out perfectly, but it’s fair to point out that I used peeled and chopped potatoes (which can soak in a lot of liquid) in place of mushrooms to accommodate some guests. I also refrigerated the filling overnight before putting it in the pie crust and baking, so that might have allowed the vegetables and chicken to soak in more sauce. Looks like we both agree it tastes fabulous — I got rave reviews all around!

      Making this tomorrow. I don’t eat mushrooms and saw in some comments about adding some potatoes. Should they be cooked a little beforehand?

    Let me start by saying I never leave reviews. I just don’t have time. But I HAD to get back on here to rave about this recipe. My two boys (6 & 8) seem to turn their noses up at EVERYTHING I make. It’s so defeating. I found this recipe today and was desperately in search of a WIN. And BOY did it deliver!!! My kids ate all of the leftover filling that didn’t fit into the actual pot pie that I had put to the side; then they cleaned their plates, asked for seconds, and cleaned them again. My 8yo couldn’t stop saying the words, “This crust is amazing, oh my gosh. It’s amazing.” It made me heart LEAP to see them eating so heartily and happily. It made every minute of making this dish so darn worth it! So THANK YOU for this amazing recipe!! (I swapped out the mushrooms for small diced potatoes that I boiled ahead of time). It’s truly a spectacular dish. WIN!
