For me, chicken pot pie ranks up there near the top of my list of favorite winter comfort foods. A good creamy, flavorful filling topped with flaky pie crust? Count me in! If I had to guess, I’d say I make chicken pot pie in some form or another at least once a month during the colder months. (And since we live in upstate New York, we get a lot of those colder months!)

From a classic chicken pot pie to a soup version to even individual chicken pot pies, that recipe for chicken pot pie filling is never far away. Last summer, I stumbled across the idea of a Sheet Pan Chicken Pot Pie on Food Network’s website. How I landed on that page in the middle of the summer is completely confusing…but I did.

Since we were in the middle of grilling season, I put that recipe on the back burner until it got colder. And now it’s colder frigid. (On a side note, can you grill chicken pot pie? I need to try this next summer!)

Sheet Pan Chicken Pot Pie

I started with Food Network’s concept for this Sheet Pan Chicken Pot Pie, but I used my own filling. I’m not one for messing with a good thing, and this pot pie filling is good great! I also reduced the amount of puff pastry in this recipe. Their version called for 2 boxes of puff pastry. Now I love a good flaky puff pastry crust, but 2 entire boxes!? I went with 1 box, and it was perfect.

This chicken pot pie is crust-forward in the best way possible. The tops of those puff pastry strips get nice and golden brown in the oven. The bottoms soak up a bit of the extra liquid from the filling. Together, those strips are fantastic! I might have peeled a strip off and eaten it by itself as soon as these pictures were taken. Just sayin’.

When it comes to chicken pot pie, I like to use rotisserie chicken because (1) it’s easy and (2) it’s flavorful and (3) it’s easy. In fact, we keep bags of chopped rotisserie chicken in the freezer all the time. Whether it’s for a batch of soup or something like this Sheet Pan Chicken Pot Pie, those pre-chopped bags of rotisserie chicken come in quite handy!

Aside from the chicken, the list of other ingredients for chicken pot pie is pretty simple:

  • a bit of unsalted butter
  • diced onions
  • flour
  • seasonings (salt, pepper, ground cumin and smoked paprika)
  • liquid (chicken broth and milk)
  • vegetables (carrots, celery, peas and corn)

  1. Cant wait to make this soon for me can i use vegan butter / vegetable broth / almond milk and mushrooms i never had sheet pan chicken pot pie before perfect for my after office meals love your recipes as always brightens up my day everyday after work

    1. I think this recipe would lend itself well to vegan options, and I do think you could use mushrooms. In fact, that sounds like a delicious comfort food recipe! Enjoy!

  2. What a great idea, David! I’m glad you stumbled onto it, and shared it with us. I agree with you: that looks like plenty of pastry. I can’t imagine twice as much. I also agree with you in that I could easily peel off one of those strips – or ten of them – and just eat them on their own!

    1. This recipe is delicious, Jeff – but I’m with ya on the 2 boxes of puff pastry. I mean I love puff pastry as much as the next guy…but holy cow! If you’re craving some amazing down-home comfort food, then put this one on the list. Cheers!

  3. 5 stars
    I love savoury pies, you know that? But I also love a good ratio of the dough to the filling, so I am glad you’ve reduced the amount of puff pastry (The ratio looks perfect!) And needless to say (But I will say anyway haha) that this pot pie looks so tasty and inviting.

    1. Oh yes – savory pies are amazing! I mean I love dessert pies, too. Maybe a meal with a savory pie followed by a dessert pie? Yes, we should make that happen! This chicken pot pie is incredible, Ben…perfect for a cold, snowy evening!

    1. I’ve gotta say that the puff pastry took this one to a whole new level, Michelle! If you’re looking for some classic comfort food, then put this on the list for sure! 🙂

    1. Thanks so much, Mimi! I agree that the baking dish is more traditional, but I do like mixing it up from time to time, too. After all, the flavors are all still there! 🙂

  4. 5 stars
    I am with you on this one, that filling is amazing and indeed it is a comfort food, in fact we have something similar but instead of pastry we eat them with rice.
