Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie is a savory mix of chicken and vegetables smothered in homemade gravy and topped with a crisp flaky crust.
Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie is easy to make from scratch and is healthier than those frozen pot pies at the store. I will admit that I used refrigerator biscuit dough. But in my defense, I did roll all of them myself to make a crust! I know, I know, I said it was all from scratch. There are just days where there is no time for making my own so please don’t judge.

Making the pot pies individually in ramekins is really optional. It is perfectly fine to make the biscuits in the oven and then pile them on the filling in the pot (YUM) or make the biscuits to serve on the side or reduce calories and fat by skipping the biscuits completely. The pot pie filling is tasty enough to be eaten on it’s own!
Tips and Tricks on how to make the perfect Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Recipe:
- Start with quality meat – use organic chicken breasts if possible
- When it comes to using spices, keep the shelf fresh by storing spices in a cool, dark place, away from direct heat or sunlight. In tightly closed containers whole spices will stay fresh for about 4 years, ground spices for about 2 to 3 years and dried herbs for 1 to 3 years.
- For extra heat, increase the Cayenne from 1/8 teaspoon to 1/4 teaspoon or to your taste.
- This dish can also be made in your Instant Pot using the Slow Cooker function. Add the chicken, vegetables and cooked sauce to the Instant Pot. Cover and cook on Normal for 4 hours. Make sure the steam release handle is turned to Venting.
