How to make the Easy Home Made Chicken Pot Pie

  • Combine chicken, vegetables, salt, pepper, chicken broth, cream of chicken, and potatoes in a pot. – You will not need to use cooked chicken for this. Instead, the chicken will cook as the broth mixture does and in the oven.
  • Simmer while lining your pie pan with a pie crust. Your goal with simmering this is to cook it some but not to cook completely. If you want a thicker broth inside of your pie, you will want to simmer for a bit to let some of the fluid cook down.
  • Remove from heat. 
  • Separate out half of the mixture. – Half of this mixture can either go into a pie crust to freeze for the future or into a ziplock bag to freeze for making a pie in the future. For your future pie, I recommend thawing completely before cooking instead of trying to make it with a frozen or partially frozen mixture.

  • Fill your pie crust with the remaining mixture. – Make sure not to overfill it. I know it sounds crazy but you can, in fact, overfill a chicken pot pie. Depending on how long you chose to simmer this broth, you may see it fill in a different way. I have had a few readers suggest you stir in flour to thicken it if needed. (Don’t overdo it or it could mess with your flavors.)

Top with top crust. – Using your second pie crust, top the pie. Fold your crust over and pinch to seal. You can go as Pinterest Perfect or real mom normal as you want with this process. Just make sure it’s sealed well.

  • Slice 4 slits into the top of your pie. – This gives your steam the ability to vent from the pie. Without this, you will see some problems. You can use a small knife to do dots or add a custom look if you want it. The goal is simply to cause the pie to vent the extra steam.

  • Wrap pie edges with foil – I read about this online and tried it out. The claim was that it would prevent it from burning and I have to say it worked really well. You are only using the foil to wrap the edges though. Don’t top your entire pie. This is just to help avoid burning the edges of your pie.

  • Bake at 425 for 37 minutes. Don’t ask me why it’s 37 and not 35 or 40. I can’t explain it. It just works. This could be different based on where you live. I know I have some readers who say that depending on where they live the temperature in the oven might impact the finished food in a different way. You may have to play with the time if you aren’t in Florida.

  1. I haven't made chicken pot pie in ages! This may be the motivation I need to make it again. 😀 Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  2. My husband loves chicken pot pie so I am definitely going to make this soon! I never thought about freezing it though and that would be wonderful to know that I had something ready to go since life is so busy with three bio kids and a foster daughter 🙂 How much does this normally feed? I'm assuming that I'd need to make 2 given my ravenous boys 😉 Thanks for linking up!

  3. I make mine the same except I use Campbell's Cream of Chicken soup.. I add broth also . I put the unseasoned broth over my dogs food and they are in Heaven….

      1. How do you recommend to pre cook the cubed chicken for best overall taste?
        Also, I really lobe the crust it’s my favorite part. Would it be a bad idea to double up on the crust lining? Not sure if it would bake fully, thoughts?

        1. For the chicken I typically cook it in a pan with the lid on. It holds the moisture while cooking.
          I wouldn’t double crust it as it might not cook fully.

        2. I boil my chicken breasts in salted water for about an hour. Then drain the water. Shred the chicken with a fork in the same pan that I will simmer the soup and vegetables with. Saves time on dirty dishes as well.

      1. How long does it take to bake when it is frozen? I’m making one for my Mother in law. Thanks!

  4. 4 cups of chicken broth is way too much. Whenever I was mixing it all together I thought it looked really watery so I even added another can of chicken soup but it still did not save it. My pot pie was just liquid.

    1. I’m so sorry your pie didn’t come out well. Did you cook the liquid down for a bit? Also, I put a note in the post thanks to your comment. Sometimes this makes too much broth and I will make two pies from it.

    2. This is exactly what happened to me. We just cooked some rice and made into a soup. Still doesn’t change the disappointment though.

      1. I apologize. I have updated it to accommodate a less soup like pie. THank you for the feedback. We can’t improve if no one ever tells us where improvement is needed.

  5. Dinner tonight from Thanksgiving leftovers from freezer!!!Thank you for recipe. Merry Christmas from the midwest.

  6. Thank you for posting the recipe; the flavor was delicious. I did have a couple of issues though. First, the picture of the ingredients includes raw chicken. Because there is no indication in the recipe that the chicken should be cooked beforehand, I just let it half-cook while simmering and let it cook in the pie. ALso, it is way too runny. Even with putting half the recipe in the freezer and simmering the mixture for quite some time, there was still way too much liquid. It did taste good though!

      1. I make mine pretty much the same way as you do and If I end up with a little to much broth I simply add a little bit of flour to thicken. I can’t tell you how much it one of those what ever works amounts.

  7. So good, but I learned something. If you freeze the filling for a second pie later, heat it up before you put in pie crust or it will not cook well. The top crust will not brown.
