Instant Pot / Pressure Cooker Chicken Pot Pie

Instant Pot / Pressure Cooker Chicken Pot Pie

Homemade chicken potpie used to be a time-consuming meal that was saved for Sundays or special occasions. This Instant Pot / Pressure Cooker Chicken Pot Pie cooks the filling in your pressure cooker, so you can have this classic comfort food on your table in under 30 minutes! Serve it any night of the week!

Hi everyone—it’s Jennifer! One of my favorite things about pressure cooking is that I can make a meal that seems time consuming but is actually quick and easy to get on the table. 

Chicken pot pies are one of my family’s favorite dinners, and they often request it for St. Patrick’s Day. (I can’t remember why the tradition started, but it’s been part of our family for several years now.) A simple shamrock cookie cutter is all it takes to make this meal into a festive St. Paddy’s dinner. Change the cookie cutter and you can make any pot pie into a celebration!

The recipe I grew up eating calls for cooked, diced chicken. We’d often have to remember to grill up chicken earlier in the week so we’d have it on hand for pot pie. 

With this pressure cooker version, you cook the chicken and potatoes at the same time, so the filling comes together quickly. (And you don’t have to remember anything in advance!) I like to use frozen vegetables in the filling as well, which saves a little extra time. I just throw these in after pressure cooking straight from the freezer.
