My family absolutely loved this chicken pot pie and I loved how simple it was to throw together. Normally I am all about making things from scratch but we all know a chicken pot pie from scratch takes hours.

You have to make the crust, chill the crust, cook the chicken, chop lots of veggies then finally bake it. But not here, this recipe is all about the shortcuts!

Ingredients Needed for This Recipe

  • Refrigerated pie crusts
  • Butter
  • Yellow onion
  • Flour
  • Half and half
  • Chicken or turkey gravy
  • Frozen mixed vegetables
  • Rotisserie chicken
  • Dried rosemary and thyme
  • Salt and pepper

How to Make this Easy Chicken Pot Pie

  • Here you start with a store-bought pie crust. This will save tons of time but a homemade would be great here as well.
  • Then you’ll cook onions in a skillet and make a roux with butter and flour.
  • Next you’ll add in milk and gravy to make it a thick and creamy sauce.
  • Add in some frozen pre-cut veggies and shredded rotisserie chicken.
  • Pour the filling into the crust, cover with filling with a second crust and bake to golden brown, flaky perfection!

What Gives it that Homemade From Scratch Flavor?

The McCormick Simply Better Turkey or Chicken Gravy used in this recipe adds such a delicious depth of flavor making this pie taste like it took hours of preparation yet it only took a fraction of that!

The gravy comes in 3 varieties: turkey, chicken, and beef. I love that these ready-to-serve gravies are made with REAL ingredients, including stock, vegetables and McCormick herbs and spices.

They come with an easy-to-pour, re-sealable spout, AND are gluten-free, and have no artificial flavors and no added MSG. Now that’s a product I can feel good about.
