Ingredient Notes:

  • Chicken Breasts – I recommend using boneless chicken breasts to shred the meat easily. Boneless chicken thighs will also work.
  • Chicken Broth – I used low-sodium, but either is fine.
  • Vegetables – Onions, carrots, peas (fresh or frozen), celery, and potatoes. I had some parsnips, so I also added a couple of those. Also, feel free to swap out any for what you already have in your refrigerator.

Tips For Success:

  • Use boneless chicken.
  • Use potato, tapioca, or cornstarch to thicken.
  • You can freeze the extras easily in Souper Cubes. I love these because you can freeze food in single-serving portions!

Step-By-Step Photos and Directions:

Photos of steps 1 and 2.

Step 1: Add the vegetables to the slow cooker. My Crock Pot is oval-shaped; you can also make it a round-shaped slow cooker.

Step 2: Add the seasonings, garlic, chicken, and chicken broth.

Step 3: Make the biscuits. I use my popular Gluten-Free Biscuit recipe for this recipe. You can also make the biscuits and freeze them at a later date if you need to.

Step 4: Place the cover on the slow cooker and turn the power to high. Cook for 5 hours. This is also an option if you have a slow cooker where the setting automatically switches to low after a few hours.

Step 5: Use tongs to remove the chicken breasts from the Crock Pot and place them onto a cutting board.

Step 6: Use two forks or meat shredders to tear apart the chicken breasts. Add it back to the chicken pot pie.

Photos of steps 7 and 8.

Step 7: Add some broth to a small bowl. Add the potato starch and mix it into a paste. I use this to thicken my sauces so there are no lumps. You would get lots of lumps if you added potato starch to the chicken pot pie!

Step 8: Pour the paste into the chicken mixture and mix well. It should thicken up quickly.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Is it okay to put raw chicken in the slow cooker?

Yes, cooking raw chicken in a slow cooker is completely okay.

Can you use frozen chicken?

No, you can not use frozen chicken in the slow cooker. The slow cooker would take too long to thaw the chicken for it to cook.

How do you store slow cooker chicken pot pie?

I always store the chicken pot pie in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I typically put the biscuits on to serve the meal, but I recommend storing the biscuits separately so they don’t get soggy.

How long will this chicken dish keep fresh?

This chicken pot pie should keep fresh for up to 4 days max.

  • 1 cup potatoes
  • 1 cup peas fresh or frozen

Thickener

Instructions
 

  • On a large cutting board, chop the onion, carrots, potatoes, and parsnips.

  • Add the raw chicken on top of the vegetables. Sprinkle the seasonings over the chicken and vegetables.
  • Pour the broth over the chicken and vegetables.
  • Cover the slow cooker and set the cook temperature on high.
  • Use my gluten free biscuit recipe to make biscuits or use a mix to make biscuits. (I tested my biscuit recipe with 9 different gluten free flour blends so you know which work well.) See the NOTES below for the biscuit recipe.
  • Cook the chicken for 5-8 hours. Cook for 5 hours on high, or if you have a setting that switches to low automatically after a few hours, cook for 7-8 hours.
  • Use tongs to remove the chicken breasts and place them onto a large cutting board. Use forks or meat shredders to shred the meat. Add the meat back to the slow cooker.
  • In a small bowl, add a ladle full of the hot liquid from the slow cooker. Add the potato starch and mix into a paste. Add this back to the slow cooker and stir. The mixture should thicken.
  • Serve hot with a biscuit.

Notes

  1. Try to use boneless chicken because it is easier to shred.
  2. Feel free to substitute or add any vegetables you have on hand. 
  3. If you use fresh thyme, you will need to use more, up to 3 teaspoons.
  4. Store the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.
  5. This is my popular Gluten Free Biscuits Recipe.

SPECIAL NOTE

Please know that every gluten free flour blend has a different starch to grain ratio. If you use a blend I didn’t test, you may need to adjust your moisture levels in your baked goods.
