Easy Chicken Pot Pie

This is one of my go-to meals for using up the shredded chicken I keep in the freezer. If you need an easy, affordable and satisfying meal, this one fits the bill. My kids love that they each get their own ramekin cup so they don’t have to share 🙂

  1. Sounds delicious! Definitely going to try it out soon 🙂

    Also wanted to let you know you were featured on my blog today!

  2. Is this freezer friendly?

  3. Looks great however I don’t see in the recipe when to add the chicken. With the vegetables I assume?

  4. Wow ! This is great! I LOVE chicken pot pie but buying them frozen isn’t economical. I’ve tried several different recipes and this is the BEST! Thanks so much! I have diabetes so i cut the flour in half and didn’t use the biscuits so it’s more like a soup. Also we didn’t have onions OR peas…but it was still GREAT! Thanks so much for the inspirations on your website regarding shredded chicken recipes. Taste just like Marie Calendar’s !!!

  5. I also only used several chicken buillon cubes. Taste just as good to me since we don’t have the broth.

  6. I made the Easy Chicken Pot Pie to the letter and followed the directions to the letter. It turned out SOUPY …..? Why ? The flavor is wonderful. It is very easy that was true. But,……it never thicken up much. I will have to take it apart (bisquits off the top) and recook it on the storve with more flour and see if I can thicken it up . Next time I will not use 4 c. of cream .

    • Hi Linda – Thanks for your feedback. I added a clarification on the recipe to cook liquid until thickened before adding chicken and veggies.
