Cornbread Chicken Pot Pie

Dutch Oven

I started to make this chicken pot pie with cornbread topping in my cast iron skillet, but after adding a few ingredients, I realized it was not big enough.  So, I decided to make it in my cast iron dutch oven.  The Dutch Oven gave it plenty of room to bubble without bubbling over in the oven.  You can use any Dutch Oven, but the Cast Iron Dutch Oven is the pictures is my favorite kitchen appliance to use in the Fall.

First Step: Cook, The Chicken

Trim the fat off of three large chicken breasts.  Sprinkle the chicken generously with salt, pepper, and garlic.  Bake it  cooked and cut into small pieces (I seasoned my chicken with salt,
pepper, and garlic before baking)

Second Step: Prepare The Potato

I added the potato because my family loves them.  It absorbs seasonings and tastes fantastic in a chicken pot pie.  Peel and dice the potato into small pieces. Boil the diced potatoes for 10 minutes.

Third Step: Combine The Filling

In a large dutch oven, mix the cream celery soup, cream chicken soup, chicken broth, half and half, salt, pepper, garlic, poultry seasoning, diced onion, half & half, chopped chicken, mixed vegetables, potatoes, boil eggs, and mix well.

Stir in the mixed vegetables and sliced eggs.

Fourth Step: Prepare The Cornbread For The Cornbread Chicken Pot Pie

Mix up the cornbread according to the directions on the package.  If I am not using my homemade cornbread, I love using Krustez Honey Cornbreadbut; you can use your favorite cornbread.

Drizzle the cornbread mix all over the pot pie evenly.  I did not do a great job with spreading my cornbread evenly on top of my pot pie.  I was trying to take a picture with one hand while drizzling the cornbread evenly with the other hand.

Make sure the cornbreads covers the top of the pot pie as evenly as possible.

Slowly pour the cornbread batter over every thing.

Fifth Step: Bake 350 degrees F for 50 Minutes

Bake the Dutch Oven Cornbread Chicken Pot Pie at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until the cornbread is golden brown, and the pot pie is bubbly.

Can you make this Cornbread Chicken Pot Pie in a casserole dish?

Yes, You could prepare the filling and then put it into a 9 x 13 baking dish.  Next, add the cornbread topping and bake.  I used a dutch oven so that I could make this cornbread chicken pot pie a one-dish meal.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown and the center of the filling is 160 degrees.  Place a sheet pan under your pot pie, in case it spills over.

How do you know when this Cornbread Chicken Pot Pie ready?

Bake your chicken pot pie, uncovered to allow the cornbread to brown.  You will bake it at 350 degrees F for 50 minutes.  The center of the filling should reach 160 degrees, and the top should be goldened brown.   If you are not using a Dutch Oven, you will not need as much time.

What Vegetables Go In Chicken Pot Pie?

Besides using frozen mixed vegetables, you can try the following vegetables, either fresh, frozen, or even can in your chicken pot pie.  Thaw your frozen vegetables, drain your can vegetables, and steam your fresh vegetables before adding them to the chicken pot pie.   Use your favorite family vegetables.

  • Peas
  • Carrots
  • Potatoes
  • Mushrooms
  • Green Beans
  • Corn
  • Chopped Asparagus
  • Celery
