This slow cooker chicken pot pie recipe does not require overly complicated ingredients.  I love simple recipes and this one is no different.  I promise, you won’t have to sacrifice any flavor either!

How to make Crock Pot Chicken Pot Pie:

First place everything in the crock pot except the biscuits.

Then cover and cook on low all day in your favorite crock pot (usually for 8-10 hours).  You can also cook on high for 4-6 hours if you need dinner on the table quicker.

Next remove the chicken and shred.  Add the chop chicken back into the crock pot and stir to combine this chicken with the other ingredients.

Towards the end of the cook time of this great recipe, bake the biscuits and serve a biscuit on top of each bowl when serving.  I like using the refrigerated biscuits as it’s easier than having to create a pie crust!  I’m all about saving time in the kitchen.

It is delicious and very easy!

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.

You can use your favorite type of biscuits for the topping.  I usually use the large ones that are on sale.  I recommend that you use your favorite kind!

You can make crock pot chicken pot pie bisquick by making your own biscuits from a biquick mix.

Also, if you love creamy chicken pot pie, you can mix in heavy cream instead of the milk.  I would not add it in the crock pot until the last hour of the cook time.

Another quick variation to this recipe is to use vegetables that you love.  If you do not love carrots, celery, corn or peas then you can definitely leave them out and add in your favorite instead.  I have made this recipe with green beans before and it was delicious!

Use chicken thighs – Chicken chicken thighs would also be delicious in this recipe.

How to thicken chicken pot pie in crock pot

If your chicken pot pie recipe is not as thick as you would prefer after the cooking time, you can easily thicken the sauce right in your crock pot.

My favorite way to thicken sauces in my recipes is by creating a corn starch slurry and adding it to my crock pot.

To make this cornstarch slurry, I mix ¼ cup of corn starch with 1 cup of cold water or chicken broth until the corn starch is completely dissolved.  Then I add this mixture to the crock pot and cook on high for 30 minutes until the sauce is the consistency that I want for this recipe.

You can also follow this same process with flour instead of corn starch if you prefer.

Why does my Chicken Pot Pie get Watery:

If you chicken mixture is bit watery it is possible that it not done cooking. The chicken pot pie ingredients need time to set up and create a thick filling. If you find that your is getting to dark or burning, place a piece of foil over the top.

Can I use Fresh Vegetables?

Yes, you can use fresh vegetables. This is a great recipe to add any leftover vegetables that you need to use. We normally use frozen veggies, but fresh work just as great.

Can I use Leftover Rotisserie Chicken?

Yes, you can use leftover rotisserie chicken. Use 3 cups of leftover rotisserie and add to the crock pot. This recipe is great to use any type of leftover chicken.

How to freeze chicken pot pie

This recipe is VERY freezer friendly.

To make freezer crock pot chicken pot pie, all you have to do is toss all the ingredients except the potatoes in a freezer bag. (potatoes do not freeze well uncooked). Then freeze the pot pie.

Next I just toss the freezer bag of ingredients into a crockpot, add your potatoes and cook like normal.

If you want to freeze the potatoes, then substitute diced hash browns 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!

  1. Carrie Barnard says:

    Oh no! I’m so sorry to hear that. It’s hard to know the issue without seeing it. It could be the potatoes (older and too starchy), a faulty crock pot or make sure that the potatoes are submerged in liquid as liquid helps ensure that the potatoes are cooked evenly.

  2. Carrie Barnard says:

    I’m glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Carrie Barnard says:

    Yes that is correct. The chicken will naturally release liquid as it cooks as well.

  4. Carrie Barnard says:

    If that happens just whisk it back together.

  5. Rylee says:

    I made this recipe and the dairy ended up breaking, is there anyway I can fix it, a lot at least make sure it doesn’t happen next time?

    This is a great base recipe. Of course all things are to be seasoned to *your* liking in your own kitchen, so I did just that. Added more salt, and used .5 tsp each of rosemary, thyme & turmeric in place of poultry seasoning, like my typical oven-made recipe. –There was another recipe I’d used last time that called for 3-4 frozen chicken breasts, 2 cans of cream of, and only a half cup milk, and no offense of course, I liked it a bit better. Only because I didn’t end up having to use a cornstarch slurry like I did for this recipe to thicken it up so it wasn’t so soupy. But, again, it turned out great, and I truly appreciate this as a reference, (I couldn’t find the other recipe and couldn’t bring myself to wing it from memory lol.)

  7. Lorraine says:

    I made this wonderful crock pot chicken, and enjoyed every mouthful. Thank you for the scrumptious recipe.

  8. Jan says:

    Any suggestions on why potatoes never get done in my crockpot? I cut them up small and they are still hard, but everything else cooks fine.

  9. Niko says:

    Made this in my slow cooker for 6 hours 3 large chicken breasts with all the exact ingredients and after I opened the lid the chicken flaked like it should and shredded with fork and stored it and that was all tastes delicious.

  10. Annie says:

    This is really good! I made this tonight for my family and they happily had seconds! The only thing that bothers me about recipes online like this is the prep time is only if everything is pre-cut and measured before. It took me an hour to clean and cut everything .

    I used 4 red potatoes (as I didn’t have any others) and there was more than enough. I put double the carrots and celery, 1/2 onion instead of a whole, and used 2 lbs of chicken tenders. It came out more chicken than anything else, next time I’d only use 1.5 lbs! The only thing that bothered me was that the base was watery…I thought about thickening it with some cornstarch, but I left it alone. I might rinse the frozen veggies or use fresh next time because I think the water came from those.

    All in all a very yummy meal! Thank you! I love crockpot meals!!

  11. Melissa Crotty says:

    So the only liquid added is the milk or heavy cream?

  12. Spacetiger says:

    This is a good base. I had to add a lot more seasoning. I’m also in Louisiana and we are not shy with seasonings. Once I tweaked the recipe the family loved it.

  13. JoJo says:

    5 stars
    Excellent! Whole family loved it! 10/10 recommend!

  14. Carrie Barnard says:

    I’m not sure. I haven’t had that problem. You can wait and add the milk in the last hour to prevent that from happening.

  15. Kim says:

    5 stars
    Love this recipe, however the milk keeps curdling what am I doing wrong?

  16. JackieD says:

    5 stars
    I made the x2 recipe for a work potluck and it was a hit!! So easy and so delicious! I will make this again for sure!

  17. Rich Youpa says:

    I made this today. Loved the recipe and prepped it the day before as stated in the dorections, and put everything except the potatoes in a large bag in the freezer. Peeled and cut up the potatoes and put them in the fridge overnight and threw it all in the crockpot the next morning. I substituted the chicken breast for chicken thighs and cut them up into bite sized pieces so I didn’t have to shred it in the crockpot. I used 1 cup of heavy whipping cream an hour before it was finished and everyone loved it. I will definitely be making this again!

  18. Brittany says:

    5 stars
    We loved it! So delicious! One question, can we freeze it AFTER it’s cooked? I doubled the recipe, as I do with pretty much every recipe and freeze the rest… Wondering if this one will freeze well. I feel that it will, just want to know! Thank you so much for an awesome recipe!
