Chicken Pot Pie Casserole
Chicken Pot Pie Casserole is total comfort food!
Chicken pot pie is a meal that everybody loves. Both kids and adults enjoy it, and when everything is all wrapped up in a casserole, it’s even easier to make and serve! No need to worry about buying or making a homemade pie crust because this easy dinner recipe uses refrigerated crescent rolls as a crust.
This pot pie casserole is a filling and hearty meal. It’s very adaptable as you can alter the ingredients very easily, add in your other favorite things and omit anything that you can not eat.
This casserole uses pantry staple ingredients that you already have in your kitchen, no need to make an extra trip to the grocery store. That’s one of the best things about this recipe.
How to Make Chicken Pot Pie Casserole
• Gather together all of the ingredients you need. Spray a 13″x9″ baking dish with nonstick spray. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
• Open one tube of the crescent rolls. Lay the whole sheet in the bottom of the baking dish and press the dough slightly up the sides. Pinch the seams together as well. It’s okay if the dough doesn’t go all the way up the sides of the dish.
• Bake the crescent roll dough for 15-20 minutes or until it turns a beautiful golden brown. Then remove it from the oven and set it aside to cool.
• While your crust is baking, use a large frying pan with high sides, on medium-high heat, and add the oil and onion. Cook for 5 minutes until the onion becomes translucent and soft.
• Reduce heat to medium and add in the cooked chicken.
• Add the potatoes, peas & carrots, and the seasonings and stir everything together.
• Add the water, stir well.
• Cover the pan and cook for 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until warmed all the way through. Stir again and remove from heat.
• Add in 2 cans of cream of chicken soup and stir to combine.
• Dump the filling into the baking dish and spread it evenly over the cooked crust.
• Open the second can of crescent rolls and carefully stretch them over the pot pie filling. Pinch together the seams and make sure the dough goes against the sides of the baking dish, creating an enclosed top.
• Cut 4 small lines in the dough with a knife. Brush the dough with milk, using just enough to cover it all.
• Bake uncovered for 20-30 minutes, or until the top crust also turns a beautiful golden brown and appears fully cooked. Serve immediately and enjoy.
Can You Add in Other Vegetables?
• Absolutely! Try adding in green beans and corn. If you use the frozen ones like the peas and carrots, make sure to thaw them first as well.
• You can also add in canned green beans and canned corn (drain these first) for more vegetables.
What to Serve with Chicken Pot Pie Casserole
Since this casserole is pretty hearty, I suggest making a salad or a light side dish to go with it. Some of my favorite salads to serve with pot pie casserole are:
Peach Salad with Bluerries and Feta
Broccoli and Grape Salad
Cucumber Tomato Feta Salad
Chicken Pot Pie Casserole Variations
- Instead of crescent rolls, you can use refrigerated biscuit dough for the top crust. You can also try using a pizza dough sheet or just a refrigerated dough sheet in a pinch.
- Feel free to swap out the water for chicken broth or chicken stock.
- For the potatoes, you can dice up your own potatoes, use Southern potatoes that are small, or use whatever frozen potatoes that you have on hand. Be sure to thaw them first.
How to Store Chicken Pot Pie Casserole
• Leftover Chicken Pot Pie Casserole can be stored in the baking dish that you made it in. Simply cover it tightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
• Alternatively, you can also store it in an airtight container in the fridge.
• You can even freeze any leftovers in a freezer safe container for up to 3 months. Don’t forget to let it cool all the way before putting it in the fridge or freezer.
How to Reheat
• To reheat your casserole, if you stored it in the original baking dish, simply reheat it in the oven at 350°F for 5-15 minutes or until it’s warmed thoroughly.
• If you stored it in a container, I recommend reheating it on a microwave safe plate until warmed.
• If you froze the leftovers, remove them from the freezer and let them thaw before reheating.
