Sheet Pan Chicken Pot Pie (Favorite Childhood Recipes Series)

20 min Serves 6

Sheet Pan Chicken Pot Pie

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon butter
  • 2 ribs celery, chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon herbes de provence seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt & a few grinds of black pepper
  • 2 and 1/2 cups shredded chicken
  • 6 oz. frozen peas and carrots
  • 17.3-ounce package puff pastry sheets
  • 1 egg

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large saucepan on the stove, melt butter and saute onion and celery for a few minutes until tender.

2

Whisk in flour and stir for a minute. Slowly whisk in chicken broth.

3

Season with Herbs de Provence, salt, and pepper. Let simmer while stirring often for about ten minutes so the mixture can thicken.

4

Stir in chicken, peas, and carrots. Pour the mixture onto a greased sheet pan.

5

On a cutting board lay out sheets of pastry dough. Roll them out with a rolling pin a bit so they stretch to fit the sheet pan. Cut pastry into one-inch strips and place them on top of sheet pan.

Note: I only used one sheet of pastry dough, so I'm saving the other sheet for next time! :)

6

Place the egg in a small dish and brush the tops of the pastry dough with egg wash.

7

Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes until the pastry dough is puffed and browned. Serve warm.

Love sheet pan dinners?

This sheet pan Chicken Pot Pie is a dinner favorite, with its simplicity and sheets of flaky puff pastry dough. It’s an easy to make family dinner that’s creamy, flavorful, and delicious! This meal will make your home smell amazing, and it tastes like you spent all day in the kitchen!

Easy ingredients & simple process

Go ahead and shred a store bought roasted chicken as an easy shortcut for this idea, or perhaps use leftover turkey or chicken instead. Pick up a box of puff pastry to use as a delicious crust on top of the sheet pan.

In this process, we’re making the easy pot pie filling on the stove, and then we’ll transfer it to a greased sheet pan. Feel free to season your filling as desired, but I really love the savory seasoning blend Herbes de Provence for comforting chicken recipes like this one.

The last step involves cutting the pastry strips and baking them on top of the sheet pan. Once baked, the filling gets bubbly and the top is perfectly flaky. YUM!

Note: I used a rimmed 16L X 12W X 1H sheet pan which worked out to be about the right size for this recipe!

Sheet Pan Chicken Pot Pie - served on a plate and ready to eat

The ratio of bread to filling is EVERYTHING!

Everyone knows the best part of chicken pot pie is the crust, and this gives a little piece of warm flaky buttery dough to each bite! Plus the filling is incredibly creamy and flavorful. This meal is serious comfort food at its best! My family LOVED this recipe, and I hope yours will, too!

    We <3 chicken pot pie! I always make mine w/ a puff pastry crust…just so much easier and more flavorful than regular pie crust dough! Yum!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      YES! I’m sold on puff pastry! It’s a winner – thanks for stopping by ❤️

  2. Kim

    Sounds good! Where do I find the puff pastry sheets at the grocery store?

    • AZ

      In the frozen section, usually by frozen bread items or near frozen pie crusts. HTH

      • Kimberly

        Thank you!!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Frozen section with desserts – great question!

  3. Hub City Girl

    This looks so good. Great comfort food! I am so going to make!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome! I think you’ll love it ❤️

  4. HipMomof3

    I’m going to have to try this some time, I love pot pies! My husband just bought one from Costco for dinner. Yum!!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes we love the Costco ones too! They are so huge lol

  5. linda

    I will be making this! It looks yummy!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks Linda! You’ll love it 😍

  6. MaymeV

    So THAT’s what’s for supper tonight! Thanks for the detailed steps (my chef is a slacker; also my chef is me).

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Lol 😂 That made me laugh – enjoy!!

  7. Cher

    Lina you need your dedicated website for all these great and doable recipes!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Aw thanks Cher! ❤️

  8. Mizz Mo

    I always keep Trader Joe’s puff pastry and pie crust in the freezer – and I am so making this!! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yum – you’re welcome!

  9. Alicia Holman

    How would this work in a cake pan?

    • 50ShadesofLipstick

      Cut the puff pastry to the same size as the pan you’re using (so cut it into a circle using the pan to trace the pastry dough), put the filling in, and poke some holes in the center for the pastry to release steam as it expands.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I think it’d still work great – just may have to use less puff pastry, since less surface area.

  10. Kathy

    Just made it and ate it! My whole family loved it. Used leftover chicken and adjusted the amount down because my jelly roll pans are smaller. Thank you!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome! So glad it worked out ❤️

  11. Marianne

    I have never cooked puff pastry. Could you also put a some on the bottom as a cust?

    • AZ

      No, b/c it will get soggy and that won’t allow it to puff up. Puff pastry is best as a topper or to wrap around a filling.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      So for this sheet pan idea I think it’d be too much crust to do that. Although I have never tried, I believe you can bake puff pastry first then place filling and bake top layer.

  12. susan

    Can this be made with crescent dough

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes I’m sure that could work also.

    • Melie

      That’s what I do and it turns out great! I put the filling in a baking pan roughly the same size as a sheet of crescent roll dough, and bake it for about 20 minutes at whatever temperature the tube of dough called for. For what it’s worth I like a heartier filling, so I usually add a cup or two of frozen diced potatoes that have been thawed.

  13. Kristen

    Totally gonna make this for dinner tomorrow! Which section of the grocery store is puff pastry sold in ?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Frozen section – in my store they were buy the pies and desserts.

  14. Spat25

    Thank you for the detailed instructions! I plan on making this. Any way this could be freezer? With me going to school and my children being in extra curricular activities we just don’t have time to make good home cooked meals.

  15. Mmt721

    This recipe sounds delicious! I am very frustrated with this app, I was hoping the issue was resolved. I tried to open this post and it took 57 seconds for it to load, twice! I was on wifi the first time then off cell service with full bars. So frustrating….

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ya -we are working hard to get the app fixed – so sorry for the issues 😞

  16. Joanne Ketron

    This looks delicious Lina! I think Phil and I can put this together 😊

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay! Go Aunt Joanne!! 🙂 ,3

  17. Danette

    With fall here how about chili and soups?

  18. Amy

    This was a huge hit at our house! Made this with leftover chicken. I used fresh carrots and cooked them with the celery and onion. The Herbes de Provence is the kicker here…perfect flavor! I made in a half sheet size plan. I may try a smaller size next time to make the filling a little more soupy. THANKS FOR SHARING!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! I made it again last night too. Lol Thanks for sharing your success Amy ❤️

  19. Mel

    OMG Lina, another huge HIT in my house! I added 1 C of garden green beans that I grew during the summer. (I french styled and blanched before freezing. Nothing better than home grown veggies for soups & stews!!)
    Next time I will double the recipe and make 2 sheet pans b/c everyone was looking for more!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hooray! That sounds YUMMY. Thanks for sharing!
