What Type of Chicken to Use

I use skinless chicken breasts. You can also use chicken thighs. Dark meat tends to have more flavor, is more tender, and will follow the same cook time noted in the recipe.

Feel free to grab a rotisserie chicken and/or use fully cooked chicken. If using cooked chicken combine the ingredients and heat/cook until warm.

What Type of Vegetables to Use

I like to use frozen mixed veggies. It keeps this recipe super easy! I don’t thaw them. You can also use any fresh veggies you want.

What Type of Potatoes to Use

I like to use russet potatoes, but you can use any potatoes you like. You can also leave the skin on the potatoes if you prefer.

Spices and Seasoning

I like to use dried or ground thyme along with Better than the Bouillon Chicken. You can also use chicken bouillon cubes or poultry seasoning. This provides a burst of additional flavor, you can omit it if you wish.

Can You Use Frozen Chicken Breasts?

If using frozen chicken it typically follows the same cook time or will need additional time, up to around an hour.

Cook Time/How Long to Cook

Cook on High for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-7 hours.

How to Thicken the Soup

Thicken the soup by combining all-purpose flour and heavy whipping cream, half and half, or milk. Combine the two in a bowl, mix well and add it to the soup once cooked.

How to Substitute Heavy Cream

Half and half or heavy cream can be substituted for any milk of your choice. Heavy cream is thicker than half and half and will work great for this soup. Milk and plant based milk are less thick and your soup likely won’t be as creamy or thick if you choose to use it.

What To Pair With the Pot Pie

I love to add cooked biscuits. You can also add on baked pie crust. Whatever you like will work wonderfully for this recipe.

Additional Veggies and Substitutions

  • Mushrooms
  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Asparagus
  • Celery

How to Store

The dish will last for 3-4 days tightly sealed in the fridge.

How to Reheat

You can reheat leftovers in the microwave or on the stove on medium heat.

Freezer Tips

You can freeze the soup for up to 6 months, but because it has milk/cream, the dairy will likely separate once frozen. In general, creamy soups with dairy aren’t the best to freeze if you want the texture to stay the same.

Notes

If you want to make this recipe on the stove, I suggest chopping your chicken into cubes and searing them prior to heating up the soup or use fully cooked store-bought chicken. Simmer until warm and combined.
Any type of chicken will work for this recipe, including rotisserie chicken, but you won’t need to slow cook it if you use fully cooked chicken. You will just need to warm up the soup.
Better than the Bouillon Chicken is used for flavor. You can also use chicken bouillon cubes or poultry seasoning. This provides a burst of additional flavor, you can omit it if you wish.
 
The Instant Pot is not my preferred method to use for this recipe. Potatoes pressure cook faster than chicken. So in order to cook them at the same time, you will need to cook the chicken for 3 minutes, 10 minutes is my preferred time for really juicy chicken. The chicken is fully cooked at 3 minutes, but you may find that it isn’t super tender.

This is a really great recipe. My husband doesn’t like peas and carrots so being able to change up the vegetables was a great option. We added some triple inferno sea salt to finish it off just because we like a little more heat.

I made this recipe after seeing it on IG about a month ago. It was so delicious I made it again when it was 110 degrees out! Now we’re finally getting some rainy weather and I’m making it again today. It’s just delicious.

I loved that this recipe required little work in the beginning and in the end. It made my house smell delicious. It had lots of leftovers so we have a few lunches and a few cups in the freezer in Souper Cubes, of course. Husband got seconds.

Delicious! I’ve never made chicken pot pie before because it sounds so labor intensive. When I saw your crockpot chicken pot pie recipe, I knew I had to make it. Easy preparation and great flavor! Thank you, Brandi!
