Here is my Crockpot Chicken Pot Pie Recipe – yes you read that right… we are making it in the crockpot. Basically you are just making the “insides” of the pie. Then you serve it with some yummy biscuits or crescent rolls (that you can normally get free or cheap with coupons!). I also suggest that you serve this with our easy to make homemade biscuits. You could even serve it with some yummy drop biscuits too!
Now this recipe does call for a can of cream of chicken soup – however, if you want, you can EASILY make your own can of cream of chicken soup. Make sure you check out that recipe to make this chicken pot pie a “tad” healthier. 🙂
This recipe is so easy to make but simply tastes delicious. It has the comfort food of a chicken pot pie without all the work of actually making a pie.
Now if you don’t have a crockpot or need a new one, I highly recommend this crockpot. (it is actually on sale right now). This is the crockpot that I love most. Woohoo! I love that you can actually lock the lid down making it easy for when you take meals to potlucks. There are several others on sale here.
If you work all day, you may want to invest in a programmable crockpot. They are awesome because you can set them to start later, or to stop and switch to warm once the dinners are ready. Amazon has some on sale right now too.
Now if you want to save yourself even more time (don’t we all?) then I really recommend these Crockpot liners. They make clean up a breeze. Instead of scrubbing and washing the pot, you can just toss the liner. It is practically no clean up.
- 2 - 3 boneless chicken breasts frozen (no need to thaw)
- 1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup
- 1 Can of Water/Milk (I fill up the Can from the soup with half water, half milk)
- ½ onion chopped
- 3-4 potatoes, peeled and chopped
- 1 bag of Frozen vegetables (I used peas and carrots. Any frozen bag or fresh would work.)
- Celery is good too if you have it (optional)
- Salt and Pepper
- Garlic Salt
- Poultry Seasoning
- Place the potatoes in the bottom of the crockpot. Then lay chicken on top.
- Literally toss everything else in the crockpot.
- Cook on low all day. Shred chicken with a fork right before serving. Bake your biscuits and serve.
- It is delicious and very easy!
How much does this cost?
This costs us under $5 for our family of 6. Our chicken is the most expensive part at around $3. Then we use a half package of frozen veggies which are $.99 per package. That means we use around $.50. Add some potatoes and some rolls and we are still under $5, especially if we make our own drop biscuits. Remember, you can serve a hearty meal without spending a ton of money.
This is freezer friendly.
This recipe is VERY freezer friendly. Toss all the ingredients except the potatoes in a freezer bag. (potatoes do not freeze well uncooked). Freeze. Then just toss into a crockpot, add your potatoes and cook like normal. If you want to freeze the potatoes, then substitute diced hashbrowns for the potatoes and you will still get the same delicious meal and it will be frozen ready to cook.
Freezing it ahead of time really saves you money in the long run. All you have to do is toss it in the crockpot in the morning. Done! 😉
