Homemade Chicken Pot Pie — But Make It Pasta

Chicken pot pie is a classic comfort food, but it can be a pain to make from scratch, especially on a busy weeknight. Enter my spin on this chicken dinner — Homemade Chicken Pot Pie Pasta. It features everything you look for in a traditional pot pie like tender chicken, fresh veggies, and savory dried herbs. But instead of pie crust, I used egg noodles. I chose this type of pasta over spaghetti or rotini because of how light it is and how quickly it cooks, but you can use whichever you prefer. It’s like a hybrid of chicken pot pie and stroganoff!

The best part of this dish is that unlike traditional chicken pot pie that typically requires an hour and a half of baking time on top of the prep time, this chicken pot pie with noodles only requires 30 minutes and one skillet. The secret is in the prep work. Have your noodles boiled and drained, prep your chicken (I used rotisserie chicken for convenience’s sake, but you can also boil two breasts.), and chop your veggies. Then, all you have to do it assemble, heat, and serve!

I garnished my completed chicken pot pie pasta with chopped, fresh parsley and parmesan cheese, but red pepper flakes, freshly ground black pepper, or even sliced green onions would be delicious, as well.

How To Make Chicken Pot Pie Pasta

  • Cook egg noodles until al dente according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  • Sauté your veggies by melting the butter in a large skillet or pot, then adding in the onions, celery, and carrots and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add in garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  • Add in flour and stir continuously for 1 minute until the roux is slightly browned. This will thicken the sauce.
  • Pour in the chicken broth and heavy cream, then whisk to combine. Simmer until thickened, or until it coats the back of a spoon.
  • Add remaining ingredients — dried thyme, paprika, cubed cooked chicken, and egg noodles. Toss to combine.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with parsley and parmesan cheese, if desired, and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Variations

  • Make it spicy by adding some diced jalapeño peppers to your sautéed veggies, mixing in some red pepper flakes, or sprinkling in some cayenne pepper.
  • Add more veggies! Broccoli, mushrooms, or green beans would work well in this chicken pot pie pasta recipe.
  • Turn it into a casserole by baking in a 9×13 dish at 350 degrees, and top with buttered breadcrumbs or ritz crackers. Remove it from the oven once it’s bubbling around the sides and the topping is golden brown.
  • Add some cheese! You could mix in some cream cheese, sharp cheddar, or fresh parmesan to the chicken pot pie with noodles while it’s still hot and in the skillet.
  • Deglaze your skillet with some white wine to add some bittersweet flavor reminiscent of stroganoff. Just make sure to cook it for a few minutes so the alcohol cooks out and it’s family-friendly. Just a cup added after you have sautéed your veggies should do the trick.
