What’s in Crock Pot Chicken Pot Pie?

A little bit simpler than a classic chicken pot pie, this recipe is topped with biscuits or crescent rolls for the perfect rainy-day dinner.

  • CHICKEN I use chicken breasts and there is no need to pre-cook them. Put them in the freezer 15 minutes before cutting for easier handling. Chicken thighs work perfectly in this recipe too.
  • VEGETABLES  Frozen veggies make for quick prep but you can use fresh too. Simply chop and steam for a few minutes before adding. Use leftover roasted potatoes in this recipe too!
  • SAUCE Dairy (milk) doesn’t always hold up well in the slow cooker so I’ve used condensed soup in this recipe (it also makes prep quick). If you do make a homemade sauce, use heavy cream added towards the end of cooking (and thicken with a cornstarch slurry if needed).
  • SEASONINGS The soups have lots of flavor so I keep it simple with a few sprigs of parsley and some poultry seasoning. I skip the salt in this recipe as the soups have enough. Taste before serving and add more seasonings if needed.

What to Serve with Crock Pot Chicken Pot Pie

Don’t forget to top with biscuits, like buttermilk or classic homestyle biscuits or even Cheddar Bay Biscuits, before serving!

Crockpot chicken pot pie is  a complete meal in itself so you really don’t need to add much. We sometimes add something fresh on the side if we want to stretch the meal a bit further.

  • A crisp tossed salad with a tangy vinaigrette
  • Fresh cut fruit (or a fruit salad)
  • A bowl of mixed olives, marinated peppadews, and mushrooms
  • An extra side of garlic bread to soak up every last drop

Got Leftovers?

If there ARE any leftovers, you mean? As long as they are kept covered in the refrigerator, crockpot chicken pot pie will keep about 4 days (store the biscuits separatly).

Recipe Rating


  1. All agreed that with adjustments, this was good, but didn’t really taste like chicken pot pie. Prior to tripling seasonings, was very bland and not 4 stars. Would definitely make it again using as a base recipe with tweaks.4 stars

  2. I’m not a big fan of peas, I used no salt added green beans and no salt added mushrooms, other than that the recipe was followed, it makes a nice hearty soup/stew, served with Hawaiian rolls. This recipe will be on my repeat list. Thank you5 stars

  3. I’m sorry but this recipe was not good. I followed it exactly with the exception of adding chopped mushrooms and fresh celery leaves in place of the parsley. The consistency was runny and did not have much flavor other than high sodium from the condensed soups. Not sure what we’re going to with the left overs, unfortunately.2 stars

  4. I love chicken pot pie. I have not made this, but would like to. My family is small, so I often find myself with leftover roasted, baked, grilled and rotisserie chicken. I freeze it before it spoils. Cooked, frozen chicken is good in a casserole or soup, not for salads or sandwiches. I am running out of ideas.
    How could I adjust to use chicken that has already been cooked?5 stars

  5. Thank you for posting this recipe today. I had put some chicken pieces on to cook about an hour b/4 I ran across this recipe. I’m out of potatoes but have everything else..5 stars

  6. Made it tonight but it does not have that creamy texture? Where did I go wrong? Can corn starch be added to thicken it?4 stars

    1. You could absolutely add cornstarch. Mix it equal parts cornstarch and water and add a bit at a time to the hot liquid until thickened.

      1. Four instead of five because my potatoes didn’t cook through with the 4 hours on high. Otherwise super delicious4 stars

  7. My son likes Bohemian dumplings, so I am making them instead of biscuits. We had fresh biscuits this morning.5 stars

  8. This was super delicious! I didn’t have time to experiment but I may try dropping biscuit pieces onto the top for the last hour to allow the biscuits to be more like dumplings.4 stars

    1. I did the exact recipe but instead dropped some dumplings in the last hour like you were saying and it was absolutely delicious. My husband prefers that over the biscuits! I highly recommend.

  9. This dish sounds tasty enough, but it definitely isn’t a Chicken Pot Pie as most folks know it. Also, there is no need to cook it so long in a Crock Pot. Just sayin’….

  10. I don’t have any cream of celery soup. Can I just use 2 cans of cream of chicken instead? I normally only keep cream of chicken and cream of mushroom on hand.

    1. You could but they do not require the full time to cook so you may end up with slightly overcooked veggies Robert. But you can always try adding them at the beginning and see what you think. :)

    1. Hi Karley, for this recipe we use a 4QT crockpot so it might be a bit tight to fit into a 7QT crockpot. Let us know how it goes!

  11. Absolutely DELICIOUS!!!! Cannot recommend highly enough. I hate soups or hot soup like foods, and I ate the entire bowl. Please make this. Don’t go with any other recipe.5 stars

  12. We made this a couple of days ago and loved it. Even though the recipe calls for two cans of condensed cream soup, we found that we had to add salt to the finished product. I was surprised at this since the condensed soups have a lot of sodium.5 stars

  13. I made Crock pot chicken pot pie yesterday on our 1st of the year / decade snow fell .
    I have only a 6 qt. Crock so I doubled the recipe. I used boneless thighs & Birds Eye frozen mixed veggies.
    It was fabulous if I do say so myself! My wife and I enjoyed a bowl and watched the snow pile up.
    Very cozy day!
    Thanks for the recipe!!
    Frederick, MD

    1. Norma, you were able to fit everything in the 6qt after doubling? Did it change cooking time at all?

  14. Always looking for ways to make chicken pot pie ..
    iam really interested in trying this .. is there a way to be able to freeze leftovers??

    1. For sure, Leslie! You can follow the same freezing instructions for our classic chicken pot pie recipe. Basically you will want to freeze in an airtight container, defrost overnight in the refrigerator, and reheat in the microwave until heated through.

  15. Hi Holly,

    Love your recipes! Was wondering if you could use a pie crust for this recipe instead of biscuits?

    Thanks, Linda

  16. so many people are now using the pressure cookers – it would be great if all recipes were adapted to be made that way as well.

    1. I will continue working on adapting recipes for the pressure cooker (please feel free to let me know if there is something specific you’re looking to adapt). Each recipe would have to be tested to ensure it works and test cook times so it does take a bit of time. :)
