Simplify Chicken Pot Pie by using your crock pot! Enjoy this classic comfort food with minimal effort by allowing your slow cooker to make dinner for you. Great easy dinner for a busy weeknight!
One of the meals that is most memorable from childhood is traditional, comforting chicken pot pie. I remember my stepmom pulling hot savory pot pies out of the oven on busy nights and just totally devouring them when they were steaming hot and bubbling with deliciousness. Is there a better comfort food on the planet? A perfectly baked crust that holds a savory, hot, delicious secret inside? Nothing could be better!
For this recipe, I wanted to transform the classic American dinner into an easy crock pot meal. Let the insides cook while you work (or clean, or shop or take care of the kiddos) and top it off with an easily-baked biscuit! It’s a comforting dream come true!

HOW TO MAKE EASY CHICKEN POT PIE
Using your crock pot is the way to go when you need EASY. Let your slow cooker do the work for you and top off the “insides” with an easy biscuit!
Cover and cook chicken, onion, carrots, celery, parsley, paprika, oregano, salt, pepper, chicken stock and cream of chicken soup (everything minus the frozen peas, frozen corn and biscuits!) in your crock pot for 8 hours on low heat or 4 hours on high heat.
Thirty minutes before cook time is up, remove the chicken breasts and shred using two forks. Return the shredded meat to the crockpot along with the peas and corn and let everything cook for 30 minutes.
Bake the biscuits in the oven during the remaining 10 minutes and serve with a warm bowl of the chicken pot pie! Dinner is served!
TIPS: MAKE THIS THE BEST DINNER RECIPE POSSIBLE
Chicken broth and chicken stock can be used interchangeably in this recipe.
If you have time, I always recommend going LOW and SLOW!
Add poultry seasoning to the chicken before placing it into the crock pot for an extra punch of flavor.
This is a great recipe to serve at a party and it also works great as a week night dinner.
I did not use heavy cream in this recipe in order to keep it on the healthy side. For a creamier pot pie, add 1/2-1 cup heavy whipping cream at the same time the peas and corn are added.
Replace the peas and corn with different frozen veggies, if desired!
Use chicken thighs in place of breasts (go boneless!) if you're wanting more of a dark meat pot pie.
CAN I USE SHREDDED MEAT FROM A ROTISSERIE CHICKEN?
Yes! Skip adding the chicken to the crock pot in the beginning and instead add meat that is already cooked and pulled from a Rotisserie chicken toward the end, when the peas and corn are added. This will save you a few minutes of effort!
