Recipe: Katie’s Famous Chicken Pot Pie

My friend Katie makes THE BEST chicken pot pie. She’s known in our group of friends for it and all of our children even love it!  Veggies and a protein in one dish = a parenting win.  She shared her recipe with me and I’m glad I have this on the ole blog permanently! 


Katie’s Chicken Pot Pie

Refrigerated pie crust (ain’t nobody got time for homemade)

1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup yellow onion, diced
1/3 cup carrots, diced
1/3 cup celery, diced 
1/3 cup of flour 
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 3/4 cup of chicken broth 
2 chicken bouillon cubes (don’t skip this step, it makes it extra flavorful)
1/2 cup of milk 
2 1/2 cups of shredded chicken or turkey
1/3 cup frozen peas
1/3 cup frozen or fresh corn 

Heat oven to 425

In large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions, carrots, celery, and bouillon. Cook until the carrots are tender & the onions are translucent. About 4-6 mins.

Stir in flour, salt, & pepper. Mix until all the flour has been absorbed by the butter.

Slowly pour in the milk & broth. Stir until thick & bubbly. About 2 mins.

Stir in peas, corn, and chicken. Mixing to combine. Remove from heat.

In a 9 inch pie pan, roll dough out and press slighting onto bottom/sides. Then carefully spoon chicken filling into the pie pan. Top with the remaining dough. Seal edge & flute with your fingers. Cut slits in several places on top crust to vent.

Bake for 30-40 mins until bottom crust is finished. You may need to cover the edge of the top crust to prevent excessive browning.

Wait 5 minutes before serving. 


  1. This looks great! I made the shrimp salad last night and it was so good! Thanks for planning all my meals! Ha!

  2. Thanks for posting, I want to try that. I'm running out of meal ideas.

  3. I make something very similar to this and to make it even easier I buy a bag of frozen veggies (usually a mix of carrots, peas, green beans but anything like that works) instead of chopping up carrots, etc.

  4. Thanks for the recipe! I am trying this tonight! Sounds sooooo good!

  5. i make a similar pot pie a lot. And my life changed when I started using the puff pastry instead of pie crust! my husband is obsessed. it's really easy and makes a ton for lunches.
