Two layers of flaky pie crust hold a creamy filling loaded with chicken and vegetables. This creamy chicken pot pie is a perfect comfort food meal and is a perfect way to use up some leftover chicken or turkey.

The filling of this fabulous pie is perfectly savory and loaded with flavor and texture. Chunks of chicken, bits of potato and lots of veggies in a perfect sauce all between two layers of buttery pie crust. It is one of our absolute favorites because it is an all in one meal that is filling and delicious. If your family and friends are anything like ours, they will start requesting it again after the first bite!

If the only pot pies you have ever had come in a little red box… just wait… your mind is going to be blown if you try this one.

   We had those pot pies as kids sometimes too. A few chunks of meat and veggies floating in a crust full of gravy.

The best part was getting to carve our initials in the frozen crust of the pot pie that was ours before it went into the oven. That way we could be sure we were getting the right one when it came out!

This is something completely different. It is plumb full of veggies, chicken and potatoes. There is a creamy sauce with notes of garlic and thyme that covers it all, making it warm and delicious and flavorful.

It is comfort food at it’s finest. Eating mixed vegetables is a lot more palatable when they are covered in a sour cream and cream of chicken sauce with just enough garlic and herbs.

What a great way to use up leftover chicken or turkey. It is like a warm hug on a cold day!

We often eat it on its own as a full meal, but it would be great with a side salad or a roasted veggie.  You could roast some squash or brussels sprouts while the pie cooks.

What if I don’t like cream of chicken soup?

That’s ok! I have a recipe for homemade cream of chicken soup. I have made it both with the canned soup and homemade and both taste amazing.

Just make sure to get your soup relatively thick to keep the filling from having too much moisture in it. You don’t want a soggy bottom on your pie!

Make one for dinner for yourself and one to bring to a friend!

In fact, this pot pie has quickly become one of my husband’s favorite meals. He has a friend who is sooooooo jealous every time I make one. Of course it doesn’t hurt that my husband has to rub it in!

That friend has suggested I should retire and just start selling these pot pies!

This has also become one of my go to dinners to deliver to friends who have just had a baby or somebody who needs a meal. It can be stored in the refrigerator and just popped in the oven whenever they are ready for dinner.

They will likely have leftovers as well, so you can feed them for a couple of days. Having no effort meals on hand when you have a new baby is such a godsend!

Make ahead instructions

This is great as a make ahead meal. Just assemble up to the point where you brush it with milk. Cover it with plastic wrap and put it in the refrigerator until dinner time.

Place it on the counter and let it start coming to room temperature as you preheat the oven. Brush with milk and add 5-10 minutes to the bake time to make sure it is cooked through.

You may want to keep an eye on the crust to make sure it doesn’t over brown. If it starts looking too dark, cover with foil or a pie shield.

Ham Broccoli and Cheese Pot Pie is another one of my husband’s favorites. He thinks it is a very close second to the chicken recipe!

If you like the flavors in this pot pie, but don’t want to have to make the pie, then you will love my creamy chicken pot pie soup. It is based on this recipe but in soup form. I like to crumble up bits of pie crust or bake biscuits to put on top. 

Or make this pot pie into a one pot pasta dish. My creamy one pot chicken and noodles is another fun twist on these flavors!
