Simplify Chicken Pot Pie by using your crock pot! Enjoy this classic comfort food with minimal effort by allowing your slow cooker to make dinner for you. Great easy dinner for a busy weeknight!
One of the meals that is most memorable from childhood is traditional, comforting chicken pot pie. I remember my stepmom pulling hot savory pot pies out of the oven on busy nights and just totally devouring them when they were still steaming hot and bubbling with deliciousness. Is there a better comfort food on the planet? A perfectly baked crust that holds a savory, hot, delicious secret inside? Nothing could be better!
For this recipe, I wanted to transform the classic American dinner into an easy crock pot meal. Let the insides cook while you work (or clean, or shop or take care of the kiddos) and top it off with an easily-baked biscuit! It’s a comforting dream come true!

HOW TO MAKE EASY SLOW COOKER CHICKEN POT PIE
Using your crock pot is the way to go when you need EASY. Let your slow cooker do the work for you and top off the “insides” with an easy biscuit!
Place 4 chicken breasts in a large slow cooker. Add onion, carrots, celery, parsley, paprika, oregano, salt and pepper. Pour chicken stock and cream of chicken soup over top. Stir mixture on top of chicken, cover and cook on low for 8 hours or cook on high for 4 hours.
Thirty minutes before cook time is up, remove the chicken breasts and shred using two forks or chop chicken. Return the meat to the crock pot along with the frozen peas and corn and let everything cook for 30 minutes.
Bake the biscuits in the oven according package directions during the remaining 10 minutes. Scoop the filling into a bowl and place a baked biscuit on top. Dinner is served!
RECIPE TIPS: MAKE THIS THE BEST CHICKEN POT PIE CROCK POT RECIPE
- Chicken broth and chicken stock can be used interchangeably in this recipe.
- If you have the time, I always recommend going LOW and SLOW!
- Add poultry seasoning to the chicken before placing it into the crock pot for an extra punch of flavor.
- This is a great recipe to serve at a party and it also works great as a week night dinner.
- I did not use heavy cream in this recipe in order to keep it on the healthy side. For a creamier recipe, add 1/2 to 1 cup of heavy whipping cream at the same time the peas and corn are added.
- Replace the peas and corn with different frozen veggies, if desired!
- Use chicken thighs in place of breasts (go boneless!) if you’re wanting more of a dark meat pot pie.
CAN I USE SHREDDED MEAT FROM A ROTISSERIE CHICKEN?
Yes! Skip adding the chicken to the crock pot in the beginning and instead add meat that is already cooked and pulled from a Rotisserie chicken toward the end, when the peas and corn are added. This will save you a few minutes of effort!
HOW TO REHEAT CHICKEN POT PIE
If you want to reheat leftovers, you can do so right in the crock pot! Cook on low heat for 30 minutes, or until completely heated through. Stir once halfway through!
Another option would be to scoop individual servings into a bowl and reheat for 1 to 2 minutes in the microwave until heated through.
