Creamy Chicken Pot Pie: Easy Weeknight Dinner


Easy Creamy Chicken Pot Pie recipe at

Pin It

Fall came tapping on our door the other day!  I had all the windows open, while I enjoyed the crisp cool air that filled the house.  I actually had to put on a sweater and socks and started to close some windows, when I decided it would be the perfect time to crank up the oven for a little bit of comfort food for dinner.  This creamy chicken pot pie is so easy to make and 4 time saving ingredients makes it great for any weeknight feast!

Ingredient for Easy Weeknight Chicken Pot Pie

Now of course if you have time, you can always make a fabulous chicken pot pie from scratch, but if you want fast and delicious Philadelphia Cooking Creme can make that happen with  a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, refrigerated pie crust, and frozen vegetables!  See? Really painless I tell you!

It took me all of 10 minutes to pull apart the chicken, and heat everything in a skillet, pour it in a pie plate, and top it with the refrigerated pie crust!  Toss it in the oven for 30 minutes while you make a salad and set the table and dinner is ready!

My husband wont usually eat something like this, he’s not a casserole lover, but to my surprise, he not only ate it, but actually enjoyed it and ate leftovers! SCORE!!  This will definitely be showing up on our regular dinner rotation!

This would also make a great turkey pot pie when you are looking for ways to use up left over turkey after Thanksgiving!

or how fun would it be to make autumn leaf hand pies!  ooooh, I may do that next time!

    Totally loving this! As a kid, I was utterly obsessed with those frozen Banquet chicken pot pies and ate them more times a week than I’d care to admit. I love them so! This homemade version looks amazing, and I love that you used cookie creme. Totally rich and delish!

    Looks delicious!

    My daughter asked me this week if I could make chicken pot pie. AND she also noticed the Kraft cooking cremes while we were grocery shopping yesterday. Your pot pie looks delicious. AND it sounds like I have no excuse not to make it!

  33. Stephanie@Henry Happened posted on September 20, 2012 at 10:44 am (#)

    mmm, my mouth is watering right now! this looks simple enough so I’ll add it to my recipes board :)

    I really should try making another pot pie. I made one years ago and haven’t since.

  37. Amanda posted on October 11, 2012 at 10:16 pm (#)

    This was our supper tonight and we all loved it. Even my 6 year old, who is vegetable resistant gave it a thumbs up. Of course we had to explain that yes, these are soup vegetables, just not in a broth but a creme!

  38. Sandy Woodson Taylor posted on September 17, 2013 at 7:12 pm (#)

    You just made my day! There is nothing better on a cool, wet, rainy day than some comfort food. My husband and I love Pot Pie’s, but don’t indulge often because I’m diabetic, but when we throw caution to the wind we love a good Pot Pie. This one looks so easy, sounds so tasty, and will be very pleasing to my husband. I believe this is a win, win, win situation. I love your page and plan to visit quite often.

  39. Jo posted on October 3, 2014 at 10:01 am (#)

    Is there anyone who has actually made this recipe? I ask because I am always looking for the perfect pot pie. The crust on this is beautiful, but it does not LOOK creamy; it looks dry. Please, someone tell me if the picture betrays its creaminess.

    • TidyMom replied on October 3rd, 2014 at 12:41 pm

      I made it and my family devoured it shortly after taking the picture! It wasn’t dry at all!

  40. Jo posted on October 3, 2014 at 12:57 pm (#)

    Thanks for your reply. I’ll give it a go and get back with you!

  41. Ingrid posted on October 17, 2014 at 4:20 pm (#)

    How did you make it recently when they have stopped making the cooking creams?

    • TidyMom replied on October 17th, 2014 at 4:40 pm

      this recipe post is from 2012

  42. Ingrid posted on October 17, 2014 at 4:43 pm (#)

    I know it is from 2012 but I was referring to your response from last week (above) where you said you made it and your kids gobbled it up. Did you substitute for the cooking cream?

    • TidyMom replied on October 19th, 2014 at 12:10 pm

      nope, I said I made it and my family devoured shortly after taking the picture – and it wasn’t dry at all.  I never said I made it recently.  Too bad they quite making the creme
