Instant Pot Chicken Potpie Casserole

Pin This Recipe!

I am a huge fan of comfort food like chicken pot pie, and Mashed Potatoes, but frankly, I don’t make it that often because it is such a process. I pulled out my Instant Pot and got to work on creating this Instant Pot Chicken PotPie Casserole that gives you the same flavor as a traditional pot pie, but without the pie crust, all the work, and less time cooking it. 

Pot Pie Casserole

Having an instant pot casserole recipe like this one, that can be whipped up in minutes versus hours to the traditional pot pie is a huge win for our household. I love having home-cooked meals for my family, but I don’t always have the time.

Can I Use Frozen Vegetables In Instant Pot Recipes?

I use frozen veggies so there is no prep work of cutting them up, and they cook to the perfect consistency. Then pair with chunks of chicken, egg noodles, and a creamy sauce that brings the dish to a finish.  Making Chicken Pot Pie in the middle of the summer without heating up your house sounds insane.

Is There Canned Soup in Chicken Potpie Casserole

No. I do not use any canned soups for this recipe. Using a Pressure Cooker Or an Instant Pot there is many Easy Instant Pot Chicken Breast Dishes you can make like  General Tso’s Chicken or Instant Pot chicken Carbonara. Instant Pot Chicken Dishes can be made with frozen chicken or thawed with no time change.

Can I Use Pre-Cooked Chicken For This Instant Pot Casserole 

Absolutely! Pre-cooked and shredded, or you could even make it an even faster recipe and buy a rotisserie chicken! Plus the rotisserie chicken will add a bit more flavor to the dish if it has any seasonings on it. I know some people love using up any leftover chicken they bought for a meal this way. 

So use frozen chicken that you batch cooked or rotisserie chicken. Both work great and it saves you one extra step in the process of making this casserole.

Can I Change Up The Vegetables In This Instant Pot Chicken PotPie Casserole Recipe 

Of course! Reach for your favorite veggies and toss them in. If you are not a fan of carrots, go ahead and leave them out. I love the mixed vegetable variety, but it is not a have to have. 

Make this dish work for you and what your family and friends like. 

What To Serve With Chicken Pot Pie Casserole 

  • Biscuits or Dinner Rolls | Whip up a batch of biscuits or even dinner rolls to slather up all the creamy goodness that is left on the plate. 
  • Salad | Transform the dish to become a bit lighter and use a salad as a side dish. Whether you do a chopped salad or a basic side salad, it will add texture and taste to your recipe. 
  • Vegetables | I know this recipe is loaded with veggies, but you could also pair with a side of roasted vegetables. We love veggies in our home, so it is always an option. 
  • NO Knead Instant Pot Bread 

How Long Will Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Casserole Last In Fridge 

You can expect your pot pie casserole to store in the fridge for 3-4 days. Anything after that I recommend using your best judgment. This is a great recipe to meal prep for a few days out of the week. 

Place them in single-serve containers and then reheat and enjoy. 

Give this tried and true Instant Pot Freezer Meal a try. It is a perfect comfort dish recipe that you will love to make over and over again.

This is an excellent and easy recipe. It’s a great blueprint to modifier to suit yourself. I used a rotisserie chicken, which made it really easy. Put 1 tablespoon of oil and 1 tablespoon of butter in the instant pot, then toasted the spices in it to amp up flavor. Added the chicken, then everything else. Stirred in about a quarter cup of half-and-half and about 3/4 of a cup of shredded cheddar at the end. I didn’t have egg noodles so used Gemelli pasta instead, and added an extra cup of liquid, taking it to 5 cups. It was delicious.
