There's nothing more filling than a homemade chicken pot pie. Replete with savory meat, tangy vegetables and creamy innards, these dishes are great for sharing with friends, bringing to pot lucks or enjoying during a particularly chilly day.

Did you know you can use your slow cooker to prepare this tasty treat? Prepare your slow cooker with a liner and get cracking on your pot pie.   

The Crust
You've got a few options when it comes to your slow cooker crust. For a pot pie encased in a flaky, crumbly crust, you'll need two to three packages of prepackaged dinner rolls. Unroll each canister and line the bottom and sides of your slow cooker, saving enough sheets to cover the top when you're done. If you prefer serving your pot pie on homemade biscuits, you can prepare a few of these pastries while your filling cooks in the stoneware.

The Filling
Depending on your taste preferences, the ingredients will change. But for best results, combine the following in a large bowl, then pour into the slow cooker on top of the dough.

  • 2 to 3 cooked chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces (alternatively, you can use chopped turkey or beef)
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup cooked peas
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 3 potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup diced onion

Once you've poured your filling in the slow cooker, cover the top with a sheet of dough. Slice a few slits in the top to allow the ingredients to cook properly. Cover the stoneware and allow your pot pie to cook for about 3 to 4 hours on high, or 5 to 6 hours on low. If you've left out the dough and wish to serve on biscuits instead, scoop your filling onto the prepared treats.
