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.

    Hi,

    First, the flavor of this was AMAZING! I used your pie crust recipe (first time making my own crust), and the flavor of that was also delicious! My only problem was that the pie crust didn’t seem to bake all the way through. I baked it at 425 for 35 minutes and the top was a beautiful golden brown. The inside was still doughy though. Any tips on how to fix this?

      Hi Jackie, I haven’t had that experience, and it’s hard to say what the culprit is, but you can try putting it back in the oven for a few minutes on the very bottom rack closer to the heating element, watch it closely, though to ensure it doesn’t burn or dry out.

    I made this but instead of mushrooms I par cooked bite size pieces of potatoes and added that with corn, peas and carrots. I made individual sized pot pies, I was able to freeze some for later. Your crust recipe as well as the filling recipe are delicious! Thank you

    I have a very picky eater, and I’m not talking about my toddler! My partner always asks a ton of questions about the recipe and then gives his opinion, as if I asked for it. He normally finds something that could have been done better or different. Made this recipe tonight, and while I wasn’t prepared for it to take almost 3 hours (that includes the time for the crust), it was worth it for the review from my partner. He said, “Are you ready for this? This is the best homemade pot pie I’ve ever had.” I wasn’t ready for that, but it made my night. So, I had to give this five stars because I think now I’ve peaked. I may never hear a comment like that again!

    I wish I tasted it before I added the salt. I did not even use 2 tsp of salt. I use only 1 1/3 tsp. I will taste it first before adding salt. It’s too salty for my taste.

      some chicken broth is loaded w/ salt. Gotta watch that too. I use Swanson’s free range organic which isn’t too bad. And use less salt figuring I can add more later. And ended up adding. But we’re also salt ppl.

    OMG we just finished eating your pie and it was worth every single minute it took to make it. The crust was to die for and so quick to prepare. Absolutely delicious filling and I added some fresh Thyme as well. My filling wasn’t as thick as yours so even after the painful waiting to cut into it, it oozed out allot more than yours. I probably didn’t cook it long enough to thicken but there were no complaints. This will now be my go to chicken pot pie. YOU ARE AHMAZING NATASHA! Thank you so much for sharing!❤️

        Made this tonight using your crust recipe, and it was delicious! I didn’t add the mushrooms, as I can’t eat them, so I added an extra carrot. I baked 35 minutes, and let it rest for 15, but wasn’t quite as thick as yours. Didn’t matter at all, because I just scooped the extra filling onto my mashed potatoes 🙂 The crust was perfect and not soggy at all. Thanks for the great recipe!!

    This came out very well. My husband said, “you put your foot into that pie!” To cut out some of the carbs I eliminated the pie crust and used puff pastry on the top only instead. I try not to use much salt but still wanted flavor so I added onion powder, garlic powder and poultry seasoning for a more savory flavor. I used broccoli instead of peas (that’s what I had). It’s important to let the pie rest for at least 15 mins. afterwards to ensure it congeals before cutting it.

She wrote: “I made this tonight with your pie crust recipe and it was outstanding!! The only modification I made was subbing a 2:1 ratio of almond milk and canola oil for the heavy whipping cream. My husband and I both said it was the best chicken pot pie we’ve ever had.”

      Anastasia — I can’t have dairy so this is what I did: for butter, sub plant butter (I used Country Crock buttery sticks in the filling and the crust); leave out cream entirely. I bet coconut milk would be a fine substitute for the cream, but honestly, the gravy is plenty creamy and delicious without. It’s a terrific recipe!

I had a bit of filling left over, and the pie is still in the oven but I couldn’t wait to try it so ate the extra filling. The mixture is DIVINE!!!! I might add a smidge of white wine next time just because I like that flavor but the filling is SOO YUMMY just the way it is! Thank you for a FABULOUS recipe, this is a KEEPER!!!

I’ll let you know how it turn with gluten free. Love your recipes!

    Thank you for this recipe! My stepson is going through chemo treatments and was craving chicken pot pie. The only substitutions I made was using baby potatoes instead of mushrooms because my family doesn’t like mushrooms and I used fresh English peas instead of frozen. I am a vegetarian so I didn’t eat it, but my family raved about it and 3 of them nearly finished the entire pie for dinner. I almost chickened out and used store bought crust, but I went with your recipe and it was perfect! This will be on regular rotation in my home now. I can’t wait for my kids to come home from college to make it for them.

    Hi Natasha! Made this chicken pot pie last night and it came out perfect! Looked just like yours. The crust was yummy and browned beautifully. I used a rotisserie chicken for added flavor and convenience. Made the crust in advance as suggested and that helped with time and cleanup. It was super easy and came together quickly. Tasted amazing. Only thing I might do differently next time is to add potatoes cause my family likes them in CPP. A winner for sure!!!

When I (& most people) look at comments of recipes I look to see if someone elses didn’t come out well for them and what they did to fix it or if they added different things to make it their own. It helps a lot. Having no reviews that express these things is not of the norm.

    I made this recipe using Turkey leftovers. It was a success with my family even though I put way too many frozen pea in it (used the whole bag instead of just a cup). I’m not a fan of peas but my husband is so he ate the excess. Will try this recipe again using chicken and the proper amount of peas.

    The crust is so easy and a big hit with my family. I’ve struggled trying to make my crust the way my mom and grandmother made it without success. No more store bought crust for me.

    Hi Natasha, thank you for sharing your talents with the world! My daughters have been asking for your pumpkin cake all Fall. I just made the chicken pot pie with your crust recipe, and baked it for the full 35 (it was nice and golden) but the underside of the top crust was still undercooked. Should I somehow blind bake the crust?

    Reply

    • Natasha
      November 17, 2021

      Hi Kristine, this should not need a blind bake before making Chicken pot pie. Make sure the oven is fully preheated. Some ovens (like my own) don’t preheat fully when they say they are preheated so I let it heat an extra 10 minutes. You can gauge this with an in-oven thermometer to hang in the center of your oven to track the accuracy of the oven. I hope that helps.

        Thank you for that advice! What about making larger slits in the crust so that more air circulates under and less steaming occurs? Or could it be that the top crust is a little thicker since it isn’t rolled out to as large of a circle?

    We really enjoyed this- perfect ratio of gravy/sauce to meat & vegs… inside not dry at all, and bottom crust held up-firm and golden. I have an old food processor and looking to update wattage and capacity and mine required a lot of splitting the mass to re- pulse then swapping for the other to repeat process then combining and pulsing again. I still saw swirls of butter that hadn’t combined, but was leery of it getting too warm. What cup capacity and wattage do you recommend for pie crust processing? Thanks in advance.

    I wanted to make this chicken pot pie for a group of elderly ladies I was having at my home. I decided to do a test run and make one the night before for my husband. Seemed to be a little thick, but the flavor was great. I know it was because I cooked it longer than the two minutes once I added the flour. The following day, I followed the steps exactly and it turned out awesome. Pie crust was perfect. I chopped the carrots, onions, mushrooms, garlic, and parsley the night before. Made it so quick and easy to cook the following day. I never would have thought to add mushrooms, but they were a perfect addition. Thanks so much.
