Crockpot Chicken Pot Pie

    1. Hi Kate, I’m glad you asked!

      I found that if I cook it on LOW for only 4 hours, the chicken doesn’t cook through all the way in my 7-quart crockpot, so that’s why I boiled it beforehand. If I wanted the chicken cooked through, I really needed to cook it on HIGH for 6 hours due to the size of my crockpot.

      Here are further instructions:

      – This recipe is for a 7-quart crockpot.
      – If you do NOT boil the chicken, cook on HIGH for 6 hours to ensure chicken is cooked all the way.
      – If the chicken is frozen, either thaw it beforehand or cook on HIGH for 8 hours.
      – Another option is to make everything the night before, keep it in a bowl in the fridge overnight, put it in the crockpot in the morning and cook on LOW for the whole day.

      I should’ve included more details and I will now since others may be confused as well. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!

  1. Sorry, I don’t understand part of the instructions. It says to boil chicken in a pot of water then to place in crockpot. Do I fully cook the chicken when I boil it? Do I drain the water that I boiled the chicken in before adding chicken to crockpot? How much water do I use if I do keep the water? Thanks

    1. Hi Rosie, sorry for the confusion. I’ve edited the recipe so that it hopefully makes more sense now. If you boil the chicken you would fully cook it and be sure to drain the water before adding the chicken to the crockpot. Let me know if you have more questions!

  2. This sounds good..
    I would want to cut the recipe in half though…
    How long would you suggest to cook for? And does it need to be cooked on Low or is high ok?

    1. Okay, no problem! If the chicken is thawed, simply cook it on LOW for 4.5 to 5 hours. If you prefer to cook it on HIGH, then I imagine that 3 or 3.5 hours would be more than sufficient. That way it doesn’t become too dry or over-cooked. Let me know how it turns out for you!

  3. What if I wanted to add potatoes? when would I put them in the crock pot if cooking on low all day? I don’t want them to go to mush.

    1. Hey Amie, that’s a great question and a great idea! I haven’t added potatoes to this recipe before, but I have cooked potatoes in chowder on low for 8 hours and they weren’t mushy. And since chowder is also a creamy crockpot dish, I would imagine it would be similar to this recipe. Of course, depending on the size, potatoes can be too crunchy if they aren’t cooked for long enough, so probably diced potatoes or small chunks would work well. Let me know how it goes if you try it out!
