Instant Pot Duo Crisp Chicken Pot Pie
I was craving a chicken pot pie and this recipe hit the spot! I cooked and my husband did the dishes and thanked me again for an incredible meal. It was such a win in our home.
What Veggies Are In Instant Pot Duo Crisp Chicken Pot Pie
This is totally up to you. You could reach for a bag of frozen mixed veggies to stir in, or chop up some fresh carrots, peas, and such and mix in. You are in control, so if you don’t like a vegetable leave it out.
What Is Instant Pot Duo Crisp Chicken Pot Pie Crust Made From
I used a pie crust to top the filling in this recipe. You can use a store-bought crust you roll out and cut and shape, or make a homemade pie crust. Either way, it is up to you. I find store-bought you roll out works fantastic for a recipe and helps shave off time spent in the kitchen.
What Makes A Good Chicken Pot Pie
- Having good meat to vegetable ratio
- Creamy and thicker style broth to coat veggies and meat
- Tender and golden brown crust
That is what I think helps set this recipe apart from other recipes. I tried hard to create the perfect pot pie recipe.
Can You Freeze Chicken Pot Pie
Of course. This recipe does freeze well. You can assemble and freeze before you cook, or cook and freeze leftovers. Either method will work in the freezing process. Just store in an airtight container or sealable bag and then freeze for up to three months.
What Sides Go With Chicken Pot Pie
- Salad | Chopped, Caesar, Tossed, etc.
- Veggies | Steam, roasted, maybe some Instant pot Broccoli, however, works as a side to pair next to your pot pie.
- Fruit Salad | Add a light fruit salad or bowl of fruit next to your pot pie.
- Dinner Rolls | Do a homemade dinner roll to dip in and soak up the creamy base of the pie.
How Do I Thicken My Pot Pie Filling
If you feel you want a creamier base you can easily thicken it. Just take a tablespoon of cornstarch mixed with 1/8 cup cold water. Make a slurry and stir into the hot filling and saute for 2-3 minutes. As that mixture is hot it will begin to thicken. Repeat till you get the thickness you desire.
