Chicken pot pie is a family favorite in this household. My kids have been asking for this almost biweekly for the past couple of months. It makes me so happy that they would love eating my pot pie (though I secretly think it’s mostly because the name has “pie” in it). I have included in the recipe notes to make this recipe vegetarian and vegan so try it out and let me know what you think!
A hack that I have been known to use on occasion is buying rotisserie chicken, shredding it up and using that instead of baking my own. This simply cuts down on the time involved to make the pot pie. If you choose to go this route, remember to buy an herb roasted or seasoned chicken so that there is added flavor. You can also make these in individual ramekins to personalize them by adding chicken to those who want it and keeping it vegetarian for those who prefer not.
Making chicken pot pie on a busy weeknight may not be ideal but it you can totally make and assemble the pie over the weekend and simply bake it during any weeknight. Storage is easy as it can last in the fridge up to 5 days. So what are you waiting for? Make this your next meal and feel the comfort of home!
From my kitchen to yours, I hope you enjoy this delicious Chicken Pot Pie!
