Instant Pot Chicken PotPie Casserole

Pin This Recipe!

I am a huge fan of chicken pot pie, 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 all the work, and less time cooking it. 

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 Chicken Pot Pie Casserole

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 the Instant Pot Chicken PotPie Casserole there are so many Easy Chicken Dishes you can make like  Instant Pot Beer Can 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.

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.

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

Iā€™m dairy & gluten free. If I used gluten free noddles would that affect the cook time? Also what dairy free alternative could I use in place of the cream?

Made this tonight and the noodles on top were not cooked... Added another cup of chicken broth and pressure cooked got another 5 minutes and it was fine. I think next time I'll start with 5 cups broth and 12 oz noodles. It was a hit though!
