I love that my crock pot enables me to feed my children easy, healthy meals on busy days when it would be all too easy to justify some take-out or delivery.
I like having go-to recipes for my extra busy days. Days when I go to the gym or run errands, shuttle kids to and from school, take everyone to gymnastics or swim lessons, and barely have time to think let alone plan a real dinner! And I love having a piping hot dinner on cold winter days.
Enter: Chicken Pot Pie in a Crockpot!
Easy Crockpot Chicken Pot Pie
This crock pot chicken pot pie is an easy comfort classic that can be ready to eat in just four hours.
Juicy, perfectly cooked chicken.
Flavorful vegetables that the kids will actually eat.
Thick, properly seasoned gravy.
And those fluffy, crumbly buttermilk biscuits.
With just a little bit of effort, this meal delivers on so many levels.
The only caveat is that I cooked my biscuits in the oven – but I used an easy boxed biscuit mix so even that took no time at all. There are slow cooker recipes that claim to produce delicious biscuits in the crock pot, but from what I can tell those biscuits are more like dumplings and not the crispy buttermilk biscuits I’d want topping my chicken pot pie.
Meal Planning Made Easy!
This crockpot chicken pot pie recipe makes a generous four to five portions of chicken pot pie (as you can see), but the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled to serve a larger family, or to make plan-overs. (Although, there are never left-overs in my house when I make this!)
I hope you love this easy crockpot meal as much as my family does! I am positive once you try it that you will make it part of your regular weekly meal planning routine.
