Frequently Asked Questions

What is chicken pot pie filling made of?

Hearty, rich, and over-the-top delicious, this classic dish features a filling of chicken, mixed vegetables, and velvety cream sauce.

What is the sauce made of in chicken pot pie?

When it comes to classic chicken pot pie, the savory sauce typically consists of butter, milk or cream, chicken broth, and sometimes flour to thicken. In this easy slow-cooker chicken pot pie, gravy mix makes it super simple to get the same creamy consistency and traditional flavor with less prep.

Why is my chicken pot pie filling watery?

There are a couple of reasons your filling may look like it has too much liquid. The first may be cook time. Not cooking your slow-cooker chicken pot pie filling long enough will not give it proper time to thicken. The second has to do with your veggies. Make absolutely certain they are thawed and drained before adding them to your filling. Adding your veggies when full or partially frozen will add additional liquid to your sauce.
