This Chicken Pot Pie might just be my new favorite casserole. That’s saying something because we LOVE casseroles around here. Some of my favorites have been our Broccoli Rice Casserole, Reuben Casserole (fun, right?), and Stuffed Pepper Casserole. I just can’t get enough of this brand of easy comfort food. All the flavor and absolutely none of the fuss. I recently made Chicken Pot Pie Soup and remembered just how much I love the flavors of a Chicken Pot Pie.
This Easy Pot Pie Recipe has quickly become one of my go-to recipes on the site, and for good reason.
It’s loaded with the tastiest sauce, chunky chicken, peas, carrots, and more, and topped with a beautiful lattice pie crust. Homey, delicious, fun, and SO COMFORTING. Don’t you want to just dive in?!

The lattice top is so pretty, but if you’re in a real rush, you can just lay the crust on top, poke some holes, and let it do its thing. The Pot Pie will still look delicious and taste exactly the same. No need to get fancy when dinner awaits! I like to make Chicken Pot Pies as EASY as possible if you couldn’t tell. I want to get right to the eating and not have to slave away in the kitchen.
If this Chicken Pot Pie Casserole isn’t the ultimate comfort food, I don’t know what is.

Is Chicken Pot Pie Casserole good for you?
I wouldn’t call this recipe healthy per se…it has heavy cream, wine, butter as well as the pie crust…BUT each serving is under 500 calories so that’s a win in my book! Everything in moderation. There are healthy tweaks you can make to this recipe to get the calories down even more.
Why is it called Pot Pie?
The origins of this recipe can be found in Greece. They placed meat in pots to serve. It was the Romans that added the top layer of crust, creating the “pie”.
