SLOW COOKER CHICKEN POT PIE — Tender chunks of chicken and potato, with peas and carrots, are cooked in a creamy sauce, then topped off with wedges of flaky pie crust in this slow cooker version of classic comfort food.
This Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie is officially my family’s favorite way to enjoy this classic comfort food. Which is fine by me, because it’s the easiest method of making chicken pot pie that I’ve tried.
I’ve made this 3 times already this month, and I rarely repeat recipes, so you know my family loves it! And we’re not the only ones. A friend recently told me she made this for her very picky eater and he loved it as much as the rest of her family.
I confess to using a rotisserie chicken, but otherwise I followed the recipe. Oh my word Danelle! It tastes exactly like Chicken pot pie and we devoured it all in one sitting. Make this delicious-ness now! So very good. ~ Tobi
Perhaps you are asking yourself how you cook a pot pie crust in the slow cooker. The answer is, you don’t.
Instead, you serve this pot pie with wedges of refrigerated pie crust that you bake separately in the oven. I know, brilliant.
This is perfect for my family, because some of us love crust and some of us don’t, and we can all add the amount of crust we like. And you never have to worry about soggy crust!
And of course, the pot pie ingredients are totally adaptable to your own preferences. Throw in some mushrooms or broccoli, or even a handful of shredded cheese.
I made this today…..and it was a HUGE hit. The kids LOVED the pie crust wedges and took great delight in crumbling them up into the bowls.
It really is Chicken Pot Pie, just not in a pie pan. Will definitely make again! Thanks for the great recipe. ~ Padnerual
If you want to make things really easy, just toss in a back of frozen mixed vegetables.
This really is the easiest pot pie I’ve ever made. And it’s the epitome of comfort food. We may never eat pot pie any other way!

I confess to using a rotisserie chicken, but otherwise I followed the recipe. Oh my word Danelle! It tastes exactly like Chicken pot pie and we devoured it all in one sitting. Make this delicious-ness now! So very good.
I made this today, doubling all the veggies and the tripling the “sauce” so it was more like a deeeelicious creamy soup (and would go farther for my family of 7), and it was a HUGE hit. The kids LOVED the pie crust wedges and took great delight in crumbling them up into the bowls. It really is Chicken Pot Pie, just not in a pie pan. Will definitely make again! Thanks for the great recipe.
Thank you! I am SO glad you loved it as much as we do. 🙂
Im new to slow cookers so what size cooker did you use? I have a 4 qt. will this recipe fit? Thank you.
I have a 6 quart. I think it would fit since there are only 3 cups of liquid. Mine wasn’t totally full.
Think I’ll try this tomorrow with my turkey leftovers. Sounds delicious.
Could I cook it on high and shorten the cooking time?
Shouldn’t be a problem!
Fabulous! I’ll let ya know how it goes 🙂
I’d forgotten about this recipe! We made it loved it, and now I’ll be adding it to the list to make again. YUM!
I have a silly question. Do you need to cook the chicken before putting it in the slow cooker? Sorry in advance for my ignorance.
No you don’t need to cook it first. Although some people I know have made it with a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, so cooked chicken works too.
I have made this several times and turns out fantastic
