Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie

So I am totally going to contradict myself here. This slow cooker chicken pot pie is made completely from scratch. There’s no condensed cream of chicken soup here. But the biscuits. The biscuits are from a can.

I know, I know.

But in my defense, making condensed cream of chicken soup is so stinking easy, yet biscuits are just too finicky and require way too much work.

But if the refrigerated biscuits are completely taboo in your world, then yes, you can certainly substitute freshly made biscuits.

This will still be the easiest chicken pot pie you will ever make.

And if you’re short on time, you can substitute the condensed canned goods as needed. I won’t tell if you wont.

I only recommend one thing – serve the biscuits with the pot pie filling as they are ready to be served. There’s nothing worse than soggy biscuits. Nothing.

  • To make the sauce, melt butter in a large saucepan. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1-2 minutes.

Cover and cook on low heat for 3-4 hours or high for 1-2 hours. Add corn and peas during the last 30 minutes of cooking time.
  • Remove chicken thighs from the slow cooker and shred the chicken before returning to the pot with the juices. Cover and keep warm for an additional 30 minutes.
  • Prepare biscuits according to package instructions.
  • Serve chicken immediately topped with biscuits, garnished with parsley, if desired.
