HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN POT PIE CASSEROLE

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.  

Prepare a 9×13 baking dish by spraying with nonstick spray 

Place a large skillet over medium heat and add the butter. Add the boneless, skinless chicken breasts to the skillet and cook until they are fully cooked, typically for about 5-7 minutes per side. Remove the cooked chicken from the skillet and set it aside. 

While the chicken is cooking, in a separate bowl, mix the chicken stock and cornstarch together until well combined. 

Once the chicken is fully cooked, add the following ingredients to the skillet: 

  • Sliced carrots 
  • Frozen peas 
  • Frozen corn 
  • Kosher salt 
  • Black pepper 
  • Garlic powder 
  • Thyme (or ground thyme if using) 
  • Onion powder 

Cook the mixture until it thickens, typically for a few minutes. 

Cut the cooked chicken into bite-sized pieces and return it to the skillet with the vegetable mixture. 

Pour the chicken and vegetable mixture into the prepared 9×13 baking dish. 

Choose your preferred topping option for the casserole. You can use puff pastry, pie crust, or biscuits. Arrange it on top of the chicken and vegetable mixture. If using puff pastry or pie crust, you can cut it into circles and arrange them in a decorative pattern. 

Bake the casserole in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. 

Remove the casserole from the oven and allow it to sit for about 10 minutes before serving. 

Enjoy!
