What Is In Our KFC Chicken Pot Pie?
You might be wondering what goes in one of the most famous and well-loved KFC sides. We’re carefully cooking our mini pot pies to get that crusty and golden brown pastry exterior while keeping it moist and creamy on the inside. It’s filled with creamy stuffing made up of hand-deboned chicken and fresh vegetables with milk.
To make it easy, we’ll be using store-bought sheets of puff pastry dough for this KFC chicken pot pie recipe. It gives our crust a sweet and buttery taste along with those crusty edges. The creamy filling of our KFC pot pie has a sweet and savory sauce made of very simple ingredients. We’re also adding in deboned and shredded rotisserie chicken and various veggies like potatoes, carrots, and peas.
Tips for Making KFC Chicken Pot Pie
Not only does this recipe require minimal ingredients but also minimal effort. This chicken pot pie with puff pastry is already pretty easy to make but we still have a couple of tips for you in making it:
- Do not overfill your mini pies. We suggest leaving a bit of space for your pie to bubble up while baking.
- Cut the veggies in your pie filling to the same size. This is to ensure that they cook evenly.
- For an additional cheesy flavor, add some shredded cheddar cheese or any cheese of your choice to your pot pies 5 minutes before the end of its baking time.
- You can also bake your mini chicken pot pies in ramekins instead of foil tins if you prefer. Although note that if you do this, you should bake your pot pies for 20 minutes.

Commonly Asked Questions
Can I make chicken pot pie ahead of my cooking time?

Does chicken pot pie freeze well?
If you’re planning on freezing chicken pot pies, we suggest assembling them in metal or foil pans and freezing them uncooked. Make your pie filling, pour it over the mini foil pans and wrap it tightly with aluminum foil or cling wrap. This will make it last for 4 to 6 months. When ready to serve, let your pot pies thaw in the fridge for a day. Once thawed, do the pastry topping and bake according to recipe instructions.
