I don’t know about you, but I love a yummy and easy hearty comforting dish for dinner all days of the year. This chicken pot pie pasta is the perfect way to do it.
These yummy chicken pot pie noodles are so easy to make, and can be whipped up in only about 30 minutes. Thirty minute meals are a must for my lifestyle, with two young kids, and a busy home life. Dinner needs to be easy to prep, easy to cook, and quick to get on the table and into our mouths and bellies.
These chicken pot pie pasta dish is made totally from scratch (I mean, the noodles aren’t homemade – but you can’t ask for that much in just 30 minutes!) with a creamy, and filling sauce that is packed full of hearty chicken, loads of fresh vegetables, and noodles.
How to make Chicken Pot Pie Pasta?
In a large pot, add in 2 TBS of butter, add the chicken breasts and cook until golden brown on each side, and the chicken reaches a temperature of 165 degrees. Remove the chicken and allow to rest for about 5 minutes, then cut it up.
Then add in the remaining butter, onion, celery, and carrots. Cook for about 6-7 minutes until the vegetables start to get tender. Add in some garlic and cook for another minute. Add in the flour and stir it around to coat the veggies.
Once the mixture comes to a boil, add in the pasta noodles and reduce the heat to medium. Cook for 10-15 minutes?? Then add in the frozen corn, and peas. Cook another 5-10 minutes, until the sauce is thick and until the noodles are cooked al dente. (Note the sauce will continue to thicken as it cools)
Serve hot. Top with crumbled crackers, cheese, pie crust pieces, or biscuits if desired.
This chicken pot pie pasta is a great dish to use whatever you have on hand. I know it can be hard to find certain things in the stores right now, or you’re trying to avoid extra trips to the store. This pasta is great because you can make it with whatever you have in your fridge, freezer, or pantry! Different type of pasta noodles, no problem. Rotisserie chicken instead of cooking your own chicken breasts, sure. Any veggies. Use heavy cream instead of half and half, or half milk.
Tips for making Chicken Pot Pie Pasta:
- You can use whatever vegetables you prefer in your chicken pot pie pasta. I recommend keeping the onion because it adds really good flavor. But you can use the onion, celery, carrots, peas, and corn like I did. Or you could take out the celery and add green beans. Leave out the corn and add mushrooms. You name it.
- You can use fresh, frozen, or canned vegetables. If you are using fresh vegetables you will want to add them earlier in the cooking process, like when I add the onions, carrots and celery in the instructions. If you are using canned or frozen they can be added at the very end as they are already cooked and will only need a few minutes to heat up.
- To save time you can buy pre-chopped veggies at many grocery stores.
- You can use precooked chicken instead of raw chicken, such as the chicken off a rotisserie chicken, or leftover grilled chicken for this dish. You’ll want about 2 cups of pre-cooked chicken.
- You can substitute evaporated milk for the half and half, and it’s a good shelf stable option. You can also use heavy cream, or half heavy cream and half milk.
I loved topping our pasta with crumbled up pie crust pieces for a perfect buttery crunch on top. You could also add butter crackers, serve it with biscuits, or even sprinkle bread crumbs or cheese on top and bake it in the oven for a few minutes. (I bake up a frozen pie crust at 450 degrees for about 10 minutes till golden on both sides and then we crumble as much as want on our individual bowls).
These noodles are a family favorite. It’s a big old pot of comfort and deliciousness.
And my kids even ate some (though I did have to pick out some of their veggies 😉 It’s the perfect family comfort food, and ready in only 45 minutes!
