You Can Make This Chicken Pot Pie in an Air Fryer

Admit it: You probably have an air fryer during the pandemic; it's the ultimate kitchen tool. But if you’re tired of eating the same two vegetables every weeknight, we’ve got a recipe for you: Air Fryer Chicken Pot Pie!

Here are the ingredients you need.

  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 2.5 cups chicken broth
  • 2-3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 pound cooked roast chicken, diced
  • 1 cup medium diced carrots, blanched for 2 minutes
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 9-inch frozen pie crust, thawed
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten


  1. Flour surface.
  2. Grasp the pie crust and gently roll it out.
  3. Place ramekin upside down over pie crust. Use a knife to cut away the pie crust, leaving ½ to 1 inch of space around the mold.
  4. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place in refrigerator until ready to use.
  5. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat.
  6. Add the onions and sauté for a minute or two. Add the garlic and sauté for another minute.
  7. Stir in flour and cook 1 to 2 minutes.
  8. Then slowly add the chicken broth and cream, stirring until it starts to thicken. Cook for a few minutes and season with salt and pepper.
  9. Add chicken, carrots, peas, thyme and parsley.
  10. Pour mixture into ramekins. Set aside. Don't overfill it so you can put the dough on top.
  11. Cover with piecrust circle and crimp edges with a fork to seal. Use a knife to add several 1-inch slits in the top.
  12. Brush with egg wash.
  13. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes. (Time may vary depending on your air fryer.)
  14. Cool down for 10 minutes before diving.
