Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Pasta has all the flavors of a classic chicken pot pie, yet is insanely easy to make. It is loaded with tender chicken and veggies in a very creamy sauce.

This classic dish is our family’s favorite, because it is rich and flavorful, making it the perfect comfort food. We also have Cheese Taco Pasta, Pizza Pasta, or Creamy Mac and Cheese. They are all easy to make meals, that taste delicious, and can feed a large family.

Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Pasta is another delicious pasta meal that you can make entirely using your Instant Pot. This one-pot dish has all the amazing chicken pot pie flavors, without all the hard work.

The pasta replaces the pie crust and it’s coated in the most amazing, creamy sauce. The chicken is tender and juicy, while the veggies are crunchy and chewy. This dish is easier to make in the Instant Pot than the skillet version, and I am not even talking about the baked pie version.

I have made this delicious dish already twice this week, and my family is asking for it again over the weekend. This type of meal is exactly what I call comfort food, serve it with some freshly baked buttermilk biscuits and you will not regret it.

You can use the biscuits or some crusty fresh bread to soak all that creamy goodness of sauce!

Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Pasta Recipe

What is a chicken pot pie?

A meat pie that usually has only a top pie crust, and not a bottom one. While there are some variations that have a flaky bottom crust as well. This homemade recipe filling is usually made with chicken and veggies in a creamy and thick sauce. The pie is baked in the oven.

Recipe Tips:

  • First, use good quality meat. Because a centered meal starts with quality meat, preferably use organic chicken for this meal.
  • In this recipe, you can use chicken breast meat or boneless/skinless chicken thighs meat.
  • Also, you don’t have to pre-cook the pasta for this recipe. Just add the uncooked pasta to the pot and cook for 4 minutes.
  • This dish can also be made with turkey. The cooking time will still be the same if you use the same amount of the other ingredients listed in the recipe.
  • Red pepper flakes can be added for a spicier kick.
  • You can also add 1 cup of shredded mozzarella or provolone cheese at the end.
  • There is no need to defrost the veggies, you can add them frozen. If you want to add broccoli florets, you will have to steam them first as they are larger.
  • This meal can be made with other types of pasta, I like to use large shells or fusilli pasta.
  • Instant Pot – I have the 6 quarts one. It makes weeknight meals so much easier.

Easy Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Pasta

What goes with a chicken pot pie?

You can pair it with:

Salads: Such as Pear Salad, or Arugula Salad

Veggies: Roasted Asparagus, Steamed Broccoli, or Rainbow Roasted Vegetables

How to store it?

Prior to storing the pasta, let it completely cool. Then, transfer it to an airtight container and refrigerate up to 4 days. Also, you can freeze it in a freezer-safe dish. Best to freeze it for up to 3 months.

How do you reheat the Chicken Pot Pie Pasta?

Usually, when refrigerated the sauce will thicken and the pasta will also absorb more of the liquid. To reheat, add pasta to a medium-large saucepan over medium heat and add 1/2 to 1 cup of milk.

Start with 1/2 cup, stir to combine and if needed add more, until you achieve the desired sauce consistency. You can also add cream instead of milk, or chicken broth.

How about the recipe for us who don't own a Instant Pot?

Use same steps, just on a stove top in a large sauce pan or deep skillet. After you add the liquid, you will want to simmer on low heat for 12-15 minutes, until the noodles are done, make sure you stir often, so noodles don't stick to the bottom of the pot.

I used to love chicken pot pies. This creation catches all the tender chicken and creamy vegetables and pasta is just as good as a crust as a base.

Made this tonight and it was great. I had to add more salt, but otherwise it’s a keeper.

What a great idea! Thank you for sharing! This is so much easier than the pie structure! I'm planning to (endeavor to) make this as a freezer meal by putting the uncooked ingredients in an IP shaped dish. Any advice? I'm thinking alternating layers of dry pasta & already frozen veggies with layers of cut meat so I don't have a giant glob of frozen meat to thaw (thus upping the cook time even more). We'll see... maybe I should just pre- cook the meat? Just curious if you had thoughts. Baby on the way... gotta fill the freezer ?

Love this recipe! I did swap out the sour cream for cream cheese. I have celiac disease so I used gluten free penne pasta (Barilla brand). It worked out just fine. I've missed pot pie since my diagnosis four years ago and this reminded me so much of it. Thank you!

Ann Jones

Thank you for this delicious-looking recipe!   I am just wondering this: after you cook on high pressure for 4 minutes, wait 4 minutes - then you cook 2 more times (after adding veggies and after adding cornstarch) - do we use PRESSURE for these, too, or just cook without pressure?  Thanks so much!

You state this can be kept in the refrigerator for 40 days. I’m assuming that’s a typo? The recipe sounds great.

Hi Debra, thanks for bringing this up. Yes, you are correct, it should be 4 days. I have corrected it. Thanks!
