Ingredients For This Chicken Pot Pie Recipe
Try adding more vegetables to the filling if you like, or swapping out different ingredients like broccoli for the mushrooms if mushrooms aren’t your thing. Other vegetable add-ins could include pearl onions, celery, small diced potatoes or cauliflower.
- Chicken breast: Diced chicken breast will cook up perfectly in this sauce, you can also use diced chicken thighs, too.
- Cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, chicken broth and heavy cream: These ingredients will make the sauce for the filling, super creamy and super delicious.
- Frozen peas and carrots: No need to defrost these, just add them right into the crock pot.
- Sliced fresh mushrooms: I love the flavor that fresh mushrooms add to this chicken pot pie, they give the sauce a deeper, ricer flavor.
- Fresh thyme: Use fresh herbs when possible for the best flavor, but you can substitute dried thyme if that’s what you have, use about a teaspoon.
- Store bought biscuits: Grab whatever kind you like, buttery, buttermilk, regular, any kind will work!
How To Make This Crock Pot Recipe
Making this recipe really couldn’t be easier! Just add everything into your slow cooker or crock pot and set it on the low setting for 6-7 hours. During the last 30 minutes, add a cornstarch and cream mixture to the slow cooker to thicken the sauce.
Place your biscuits into the oven according to the package directions and either serve them alongside the filling or right on top. This is a great make ahead dinner recipe, too! You can make this pot pie even a day or two ahead of time and then just warm it up and serve.
