What exactly is in Crock Pot Chicken Pot Pie?
This dish is a little easier than a traditional chicken pot pie and is served with biscuits or crescent rolls for the perfect rainy-day meal.
To make this easy crockpot recipe, all you need are just a couple of simple ingredients that you might already have on hand.
CHICKEN: I use chicken breasts, which don’t need to be cooked ahead of time. Put them in the freezer for 15 minutes before you want to cut them to make them easier to handle. This recipe also works well with chicken thighs.
VEGETABLES: Frozen vegetables are easy to prepare, but you can also use fresh. Just cut them up and steam them for a few minutes. You can also use leftover roasted potatoes.
SAUCE: Milk (dairy) doesn’t always do well in the slow cooker, so I’ve used condensed soup in this recipe instead (this makes prep quick). If you make your own sauce, add heavy cream near the end of the cooking process (if needed, thicken with a cornstarch slurry).
SEASONINGS: Soups are very flavorful, so I only add some parsley and poultry spice for a minimalist touch. There is no need for salt in this dish. Before serving, give it a quick taste and adjust the spices accordingly.
To make this recipe gluten-free (you should use these ingredients instead):
Cream of celery soup – there is a variety of gluten-free cream of celery soup available like Mom’s Place.
Cream of chicken soup – unfortunately, most canned cream of chicken soup in the store are not gluten-free. Easily make a gluten-free alternative at home by sauteing the chicken in butter. Whisk in the flour until brown before adding the (chicken or vegetable) broth and (non-dairy) milk. Bring to a boil until thickened.
Refrigerated biscuits – if using, make sure to pick the ones labeled as gluten-free. Some brands offer gluten-free biscuit dough, such are Krusteaz, Pillsbury, and Bob’s Red Mill. These are usually made with arrowroot, rice flour, or tapioca.
How to make CrockPot Chicken Pot Pie
Three easy steps are all it takes to make this chicken pot pie in the slow cooker.
