Use shredded or cubed cooked chicken for this pot pie.
Absolutely. Store-bought pie crust is a welcome shortcut, but use your favorite homemade pie crust. This is my go-to homemade pie crust recipe.
To keep your pie crust from getting soggy, be sure to adequately thicken your pot pie filling. If the filling is too runny, it will soak into the crust as it bakes, making it soggy. If your filling is nice and thick, but your crust is still coming out soggy, consider prebaking the bottom crust before adding the filling.
If you notice that the pot pie crust is browning too quickly, loosely cover the pot pie with foil halfway through baking.
Chicken pot pie is freezer friendly both before and after baking. To freeze unbaked chicken pot pie, assemble the pie completely, then tightly wrap in aluminum foil and freeze for up to 2 months. To freeze a fully baked chicken pot pie, let the pie cool to room temperature, then wrap tightly in aluminum foil and freeze for up to 2 months.
A chicken pot pie is a meal in itself but you can always add a side or two. Here are some favorites:
Whether on its own or with some sides, this chicken pot pie is a classic. It’s comfort food at its best!
Store leftover chicken pot pie in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
IMPORTANT: If freezing a chicken pot pie, do NOT use a glass pie dish. A glass pie dish will shatter if transferred directly from the freezer to the oven. Use a metal, ceramic, or disposable aluminum pie dish for freezer storage.
- Unbaked Pie: To freeze unbaked chicken pot pie, assemble the pie completely, then tightly wrap in aluminum foil and freeze for up to 2 months. To bake from frozen, bake in a preheated oven with the foil on for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and continue to bake for 45-50 minutes, until golden brown and 165°F internally.
- Baked Pie: To freeze a fully baked chicken pot pie, let the pie cool to room temperature, then wrap tightly in aluminum foil and freeze for up to 2 months. To reheat from frozen, bake in a preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until 165°F internally.
Pot Pie Variations
- Chicken: Instead of chicken, use an equal amount of shredded or cubed cooked turkey – a delicious way to use Thanksgiving leftovers!
- Veggies: Use 2 cups of diced fresh vegetables in place of frozen veggies. Feel free to use the veggies of your choice for more variation. I like broccoli and pearl onions!
