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!

Tools I used to make the Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Recipe:

  • Slow Cooker – I use it almost everyday to make dishes like flavored oatmeal, mashed potatoes, pasta and meaty dinners.
  • Ramekins – 8 ounce ramekins are the perfect size for individual portions and great finish dishes in the oven.

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.

Chicken Pot Pies are so cozy and warm, with moist chicken and golden crust. This recipe is great for cooler weather, but so tasty you will want to make all year long! Here is the handy printable recipe. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 large boneless,skinless chicken breasts
  • 5 medium red potatoes, quartered
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 cup frozen sweet corn
  • 4 TBSP (1/2 stick) unsalted butter**
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/8 tsp each marjoram,paprika and cayenne
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 can refrigerated jumbo biscuits (8 biscuits)*

Instructions

  1. Lightly coat the inside of slow cooker with cooking spray.Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker. Place the potatoes, carrots, celery, onion and corn on top of the chicken.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat melt the butter. Add the garlic and cook until garlic is fragrant, 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add flour to the butter mixture and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add the chicken stock, basil,oregano, thyme, marjoram,paprika and cayenne and bring mixture to a boil.
  5. Lower heat and cook until the sauce thickens, about 3 – 5 minutes.
  6. Pour the sauce over the chicken and vegetables in the slow cooker. Stir to coat. Place bay leaves on top.
  7. Place lid on the slow cooker. Cook for 2 hours on high and 4 hours on low setting.
  8. The chicken is done when a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees or more at the thickest part of the chicken. The potatoes should also be fork tender.
  9. Remove the bay leaves from the slow cooker and discard.
  10. Remove the chicken breasts, using two forks shred into bite size pieces and return to the slow cooker. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  11. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  12. Divide the cooked chicken mixture evenly between 8 ramekins (8-10 ounce size).
  13. Open the biscuit tube and separate 8 biscuits. Using your hands or rolling pin, flatten biscuit dough to form a round the same size as the top of the ramekins.
  14. Place a biscuit dough round on top of each ramekin and using a knife cut a few slits in the dough.
  15. Place the ramekins on a sheet pan and bake for 9-12 minutes, until the dough is golden brown.
  16. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before serving.


Notes

*I love to serve the biscuits on the top but some people prefer them served on the side or just skipped. For this recipe I used refrigerated buttermilk biscuits.

** To reduce fat and calories, use unsalted 80 calorie per tablespoon margarine instead of butter.
