How to make Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie

In a slow cooker, place chicken breasts, onion, salt and pepper, garlic, thyme, rosemary, chicken broth, potatoes, and frozen peas and carrots. That’s it, it’s really that simple! Cook on high for 3 hours, then carefully (don’t burn yourself!) remove the chicken breasts from the slow cooker, and shred them. Now, before placing the shredded chicken back into the slow cooker, remove the herb sprigs and discard them (Rosemary and Thyme). Once they’re discarded, add shredded chicken back into slow cooker. In a mixing bowl, whisk flour and cream together until smooth; add into slow cooker, stirring to incorporate all ingredients.

Continue cooking on high for one hour. Now that’s one hour to cruise IG, watch Netflix or you can use this time to bake some biscuits! I’m a sucker for Pillsbury Biscuits – I could/can eat an entire pack to myself. You only live once, and I’m not about to start limiting my biscuit intake. Anywho! What I’m trying to get at is that during this hour, you can make biscuits, but it’s not required for a successful recipe. However, they’re delicious to dip into this Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie recipe.

After one hour has passed, it’s time to dive in! Grab a few soup bowls, scooping your delicious masterpiece into each; finish with a little fresh Parsley or Thyme garnish and enjoy!

Add in cornstarch if you’d like the soup to be thicker. I loved this recipe as a soup, but my boyfriend said he would have loved it to be a little thicker, so he could really scoop it up with his biscuits.

  1. Hi! How much cornstarch should one add to make the soup thicker?

    • Hey Erin! Depending on how thick you’d like to make this recipe, the rule of thumb is: For each cup of liquid you’d like to thicken, start with one tablespoon of cornstarch in a small bowl. Add an equal amount of cold water and stir until it’s a smooth paste. Slowly whisk this into the slow cooker to thicken! Hope this helps!
