Chicken Pot Pie is a comforting and hearty dish featuring a creamy chicken and vegetable filling encased in a flaky pastry crust. It’s a classic favorite, perfect for a cozy family dinner.


For the Filling:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 cups cooked chicken, shredded (rotisserie chicken works well)
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Optional: 1 potato, diced

For the Crust:

  • 1 package (about 1 pound) store-bought pie crust or homemade pie dough
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large skillet or saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, carrots, and celery (and potato if using). Cook until the vegetables are softened, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir to combine. Cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Gradually add the chicken broth and milk, stirring constantly. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook until it thickens, about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the shredded chicken, frozen peas, frozen corn, salt, pepper, and thyme to the saucepan. Stir until the filling is well combined. Remove from heat and set aside.
  6. Roll out the pie dough and fit one crust into the bottom of a 9-inch pie dish. Trim any excess dough from the edges.
  7. Pour the chicken filling into the prepared pie crust.
  8. Place the second pie crust over the filling. Trim, seal, and crimp the edges. Cut a few slits in the top crust for steam to escape.
  9. Brush the top crust with the beaten egg to create a golden, shiny finish.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  11. Let the chicken pot pie cool for 10 minutes before serving.
