SLOW COOKER CHICKEN POT PIE — Tender chunks of chicken and potato, with peas and carrots, are cooked in a creamy sauce, then topped off with wedges of flaky pie crust in this slow cooker version of classic comfort food.
I’ve made this 3 times already this month, and I rarely repeat recipes, so you know my family loves it! And we’re not the only ones. A friend recently told me she made this for her very picky eater and he loved it as much as the rest of her family.
Instead, you serve this pot pie with wedges of refrigerated pie crust that you bake separately in the oven. I know, brilliant.
This is perfect for my family, because some of us love crust and some of us don’t, and we can all add the amount of crust we like. And you never have to worry about soggy crust!
And of course, the pot pie ingredients are totally adaptable to your own preferences. Throw in some mushrooms or broccoli, or even a handful of shredded cheese.
If you want to make things really easy, just toss in a back of frozen mixed vegetables.
This really is the easiest pot pie I’ve ever made. And it’s the epitome of comfort food. We may never eat pot pie any other way!
