My kids have been telling me how great the chicken pot pie at school lunch is. They were so devastated when a couple of weeks ago the oven at the school broke down and they missed out on chicken pot pie day. I decided to make them chicken pot pie for dinner and see how it compared to the school lunch version. I’m happy to report that my slow cooker version of chicken pot pie was a hit! And it is totally homemade…no cream of chicken soups or biscuits from a can (although I have nothing against that).
I started with cubing some yellow potatoes and some uncooked boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I like to use thighs in my slow cooker recipes because the chicken always turns out really tender and moist. You can also use chicken breasts, if you prefer that. Sometimes I like to use a combination of the two. The white and the dark meat work well together…you kind of get the best of both worlds (healthier and juicier). Then you add in some creamy sauce and let it cook on low for several hours. After the potatoes and chicken are cooked through you’ll add in a bag of frozen peas and carrots and then top with freshly baked biscuits. Dinner in a bowl that couldn’t be more comforting…or more requested. This recipe will be a family favorite!
For this recipe I made homemade cream of chicken soup (from Pinch of Yum) and homemade biscuits (from Completely Delicious). If you want to use a can of cream of chicken soup and a can of biscuits…you could totally do that too.
And guess what happened just today? My daughter asked if I could come join her for lunch at school. And they were serving Chicken Pot Pie! This is what it looked like (not to be rude but I think mine looks and tastes a lot better).

I used a 5 quart slow cooker for this recipe. But a 6 quart would be fine too. This is my favorite 6 quart slow cooker slow cooker. This is an affiliate link for Amazon. Each time you purchase something from Amazon that I’ve linked to I get a few pennies. Thanks so much for supporting my blog!
