Homemade Chicken Pot Pie Casserole

by Alli

Homemade Chicken Pot Pie Casserole is a comfort food casserole that features tender, shredded chicken, a tasty thickened broth, and a delicious crust. 

This is the homemade chicken pot pie casserole that my kids grew up eating. Back in the day, this pot pie usually showed up on my weekly menu. It’s an easy dish to make and it’s one the entire family loves.

I know this is not your traditional chicken pot pie. It probably should be called a chicken casserole since it doesn’t have any vegetables added. But I’ve always called it a pot pie so that’s what we will continue to call this dish. 

Ingredients for Chicken Pot Pie Casserole

To make this homemade chicken pot pie, you’ll need the following ingredients.

  • Boiled and Deboned Chicken (or you can use a rotisserie chicken, skin removed)
  • Chicken Broth (3/4 cup broth from boiled chicken)
  • Cream of Celery Soup
  • Boiled Eggs, sliced
  • Self-rising flour
  • Milk
  • Melted Butter
  • Salt and Pepper

How To Boil a Whole Chicken 

I use a small fryer (2-1/2 to 3 pounds) for this recipe.

If you’re boiling a small whole chicken (fryer), it will take about 60-70 minutes (90 minutes for larger chickens). The internal temperature should be 160º. Be careful not to overcook or the chicken will be rubbery instead of tender.

Place the whole chicken in a large pot and cover with water or low sodium chicken broth. To add even more flavor to the chicken, season with salt and pepper and add two quartered carrots and a large onion, quartered. 

Cover the pot and bring to a boil over high heat. When it comes to a boil, lower the heat and simmer (partially covered) for 60 minutes or until done. Remove chicken and allow it to cool before deboning. Strain and reserve broth. 

Shortcuts For When You’re In A Hurry

Sometimes I don’t have the extra time to boil a chicken to make this casserole. Here are some shortcuts that help when I’m running short of time. 

  • Buy a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Remove the skin before shredding the chicken. 
  • You can also purchase hard-boiled eggs from the grocery store. All you have to do is slice them. 

Simple Steps For Making Chicken Pot Pie Casserole (See the complete printable recipe card below)

1. Preheat oven – Preheat the oven to 350º F.

4. Slice the hard-boiled eggs and place them in a single layer over the cream of celery soup. They don’t have to be super close, just evenly space them out.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
