Here is everything you need to make Company’s Coming Chicken Pot Pie recipe:
For the Filling:
- 1 whole chicken precooked (use white meat saving dark for other recipes like ramen soups)
- 1 yellow onion, minced
- 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
- 6 tablespoons butter
- salt and pepper to taste
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- 2 cups chicken broth

- ¼ cup sour cream
- 2 cups sliced mushrooms

- 1 cup diced celery (around 4 stalks)

The Recipe How-To
Step 1: Cook the Chicken
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a 2-quart saucepan, melt 6 tablespoons of butter over medium heat.
While the butter is melting, remove the meat from 1 whole chicken. If you have a pre-cooked chicken, use white meat because it’s less greasy than dark meat. Don’t throw away the dark meat though; save it for future dishes like ramen soups.
If you don’t have a pre-cooked chicken, you can cook one yourself by boiling it for an hour and thirty minutes.
Once you’ve removed all of the meat from your chicken, cut it into small bite-size pieces.
Step 2: Prepare the Vegetables
Peel and finely chop 1 yellow onion, then set aside.
Mince 2-3 garlic cloves or more if you love garlic.
Peel, chop and slice 3-4 carrots and celery stalks, then set aside.
Step 3: Saute Vegetables
In the same saucepan where you melted butter earlier, add minced onions and saute until fragrant for about 2-3 minutes. Add minced garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes until they become light golden brown.
Pour in ⅓ cup all-purpose flour, stir well to combine with onions and garlic. Continue stirring for a minute or two until the mixture turns arid yet still oil in texture.
Step 4: Add Creamy Components
Slowly add one cup of milk, while whisking continuously to prevent any lump formation. Blend them together until smooth.
Add 1 cup of chicken broth (you can either use some bouillon with water or canned broth).
Then add one cup of sour cream to give thickness to your filling alongside creaminess.
Step 5: Add Chicken and Veggies
Add carrots and celery cutes and mix it properly with the rest of the fillings.
Next add in cooked chicken pieces to complete the filling ingredients.
Salt and pepper everything for taste – this will probably take about a tablespoon each of salt and pepper.
Stir everything together well until fully combined so that each bite later would consist of every ingredient evenly distributed across your pie dish.
Preparing The Pie Crusts
To make this step easy there are pre-baked pie crusts at your disposal in most grocery stores but making homemade crusts is way more fun! King Arthur has an amazing recipe click here if you’re interested – I promise it’s worth it!
If making homemade crust is not what you’re looking for Pillsbury pie crusts are also kosher. Their pie crusts can be found usually in the refrigerated dough section at your grocery store or where special
Substitutions and Variations
One of the things I love about this recipe is its versatility, making it a perfect dish for any occasion. Don’t have all the ingredients on hand? No problem! There are numerous substitutions and variations you can try to make it your own.
Instead of chicken, you could use turkey or even beef to switch up the flavor profile. You can also add in some vegetables like green beans or corn to give it a boost of color and nutrition. If you’re vegetarian, try adding in some diced tofu or tempeh as a meat substitute.
If you’re looking for a healthier option, consider swapping out regular pie crusts for a whole wheat or gluten-free option. These crusts will add extra fiber to your diet and are just as delicious as their traditional counterparts.
For those who prefer a creamier filling, try substituting milk with heavy cream or coconut milk. This will give the filling a rich and decadent taste that’s sure to please any palate.
Lastly, if you want to turn up the heat, add in some diced jalapeños or red pepper flakes to kick up the spice level. Whatever substitutions or changes you choose to make, always remember that cooking is an art, and creativity is key. So don’t be afraid to experiment and make the recipe your own!
Serving and Pairing
Once your company-pleasing chicken pot pie is baked to perfection, it’s time to serve and enjoy! This dish is the epitome of cozy comfort food, and it pairs well with a variety of sides and beverages.
To really accentuate the flavors in this dish, I recommend serving it with some crusty bread or warm dinner rolls. The bread will allow you to easily soak up all the savory broth and sauce from the pie. Alternatively, a simple side salad can also provide a refreshing contrast to the richness of the chicken pot pie filling.
As for beverages, a crisp white wine or light-bodied red wine would be a great choice to balance out the creaminess of the pot pie. If you prefer non-alcoholic options, a cold glass of milk is always a classic pairing with any casserole dish.
Overall, this dish is versatile and can be served as a main course or as part of a larger meal spread. It’s perfect for family dinners or even for entertaining guests!
Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating
When it comes to chicken pot pie, one of the best things about it is how easy it is to make ahead, store, and reheat. This savory pie is a wonderful comfort food that can easily be reheated for a quick and satisfying meal any day of the week.
If you want to save time and energy, you can prepare the filling ingredients in advance, and then assemble the pie when you’re ready to bake. Store the assembled pot pie in the fridge for up to 24 hours before baking. If you want to keep it longer or make several ahead of time, wrap them well with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and place them in the freezer for up to 2-3 months.
To reheat a pre-baked pot pie from the fridge, preheat your oven to 350-degrees Fahrenheit. Then place the chilled pie into the oven and bake until heated through completely. This should take around 20-25 minutes depending on how large your pot pies are.
If you are reheating a frozen pot pie, allow it to thaw overnight in the refrigerator before baking. And then pop it in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until heated through.
For leftovers, store your chicken pot pie in an airtight container in the fridge for up to four days. To reheat individual servings, transfer them to a microwave-safe dish and heat on high for 1-2 minutes or until heated through.
Regardless of how you choose to reheat your chicken pot pies, always make sure that they are heated thoroughly all the way through before serving. This ensures that you’ll have a delicious and satisfying meal every time you tuck into one of these classic comfort foods.
Tips for Perfect Results
Making a chicken pot pie can be a bit challenging especially if you’re not familiar with it. The crispy and buttery crust combined with creamy and flavorful filling requires some skills to make sure they are cooked perfectly. Here are some tips that will help you get perfect results every time you make a chicken pot pie:
First, when making the roux, cook it long enough to eliminate the flour taste. It takes only a couple of minutes for the raw flavor of flour in the mixture to cook out, but it’s just enough time for it to burn if you aren’t careful. So stir constantly until mixture turns golden brown in color before whisking in the liquid.
Secondly, when sautéing the vegetables, don’t overcrowd them in the pan. Vegetables release water while cooking; too many vegetables in one pan can prevent them from browning evenly. So, if you need to brown more than one batch of veggies, divide them into several portions and cook each group individually.
Thirdly, use leftovers instead of freshly cooked chicken as well as stock instead of canned broth. Leftover chicken has already been seasoned with salt and pepper and the bones impart rich taste and nutrition to your dish so using fresh makes a difference. Stock imparts an infusion of flavor that canned broth can’t match.
Fourthly, cover your pie crust with foil after baking them for 30 minutes. Pie crust bakes relatively quickly and exposed to heat too long can cause it to burn or over-crisp [which makes cutting more difficult]. To prevent this, use foil cover while the filling cooks through.
Finally, let your chicken pot pie cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. This step not just prevent you from burning your mouth but also allows the filling to settle making it easier for slicing or dishing out without spillage.

Company’s Coming Chicken Pot Pie Recipe
- 1 whole chicken, precooked (I only use the white meat, saving the dark for Ramen soups)
- 1 yellow onion, minced (2-3 inch)
- 3 -4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 (6 ounce) package exotic mushrooms (or anything BUT Button Mushrooms)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 (6 -8 ounce) package frozen vegetables (I use peas, corn, green beans, carrots and lima bean mixture)
- 2 (10 1/2 ounce) cans cream of chicken soup
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup merlot (NOT White! wine)
- 3 sprigs fresh thyme (3-inch)
- 2 sprigs fresh rosemary (2-inch)
- 1 sprig oregano, 3 inch (I buy herb "packs" for $2.99 that contain all of these herbs together. They last for over 2 weeks so)
- 1 (8 count) package pillsbury grand flakey biscuits
- 1 tablespoon of crushed Italian spices
- 2 tablespoons of melted butter
- Place chopped onions, garlic and exotic mushroom mixture into a large 12" skillet with butter, cover, and heat over low heat until the onions are transparent.
- Meanwhile, tear apart the chicken, tearing the pieces into bite-sized bits. If you like dark meat, include it, but I save it for flavouring instant soups. That means I use 2-3 cups of White Meat for the recipe.
- When onion/garlic/mushroom mixture is softened, add chicken, cream of chicken soup, the sour cream, milk, wine, herbs and frozen vegetables to skillet. If you plan on making this NOW, heat until very hot, but not boiling. If you plan on having it later, heat until just warm and flavours are allowed to mingle, then stick mixture in frig, in skillet.
- When you're ready to make this, spray an 11" x 7" oven-proof pan with non-stick spray. Heat oven to 375 degrees or what biscuit directions state on package. Heat mixture until very hot, pour into casserole dish.
- Melt butter in a deep bowl with Italian Seasonings. Open package of rolls and place on top of chicken mixture. Brush rolls with the melted butter/herb mixture.
- Bake in oven for 15-25 minutes until ROLLS ARE DONE and mixture is bubbling. My baking time was 18 minutes.
- Scoop one biscuit out onto deep bowl or rimmed plate and spoon chicken sauce either around it or directly over it.
