To make it as part of a freezer cooking day, just split the sauce & chicken into multiple bags, then throw it right into the freezer–no cooking required!

To make this even easier we used a rotisserie chicken. But you can use any type of chicken you have on hand.

Step 5: Thaw if frozen; cook in crockpot on low for 4-6 hours or high for 3-4 hours; until chicken is cooked. (Note-don’t worry if your chicken isn’t all the way thawed.  It can also cook from frozen, it might just take a little longer.)

Step 6: Once you are ready to serve the pot pie, add your container of homemade cream of chicken soup to crockpot, stir and make sure crockpot is on high. Your pot pie mixture will thicken as it cooks.

    Does this make 1 meal or two? I only ask because the directions say to divide in 2 bags and it’s 16 servings. Thank you.

      Hi Wendy,

      Sorry that was a misprint. So yes, it does make two meals that will each serve about 6 people. Hope you enjoy! 🙂

    Looks scrumptious. Love anything I can make in my crockpot. Pinning. I make a pretty mean chicken pot pie, too. Wrote about it on my blog. Pretty please would you stop by to check it out? I would be tickled pig and in hog heaven.

    Is this a silly question? If the rotisserie chicken is already cooked, will it be mush by the time it’s done in the crock pot? So excited to try the freezer to crock pot recipes! Thank you.

      HI Kari,
      The rotisserie chicken is not mushy. It works really well in this recipe. I hope you will give it a try! 🙂
