Pot pies are the ultimate comfort food and for good reason! The flakey, buttery, warm crust is inviting and in between the layers of crust lies a nutrient rich, and flavor rich, filling that will keep you satisfied for hours. Little ones, toddlers, and big kids all love pot pie meals as much as grown ups. From standard fare to creative cuisine like chicken pot pie pockets, these pot pie ideas are sure to please even the pickiest palate.

The OG- chicken pot pie

We all know it, we all love it- it’s chicken pot pie. Chicken pot pie is the original pot pie that we all think of when we think of pot pie. With cubes of chicken breast, a creamy savory sauce, sweet peas, and tender crisp carrots, this pie is sure to please. Like a traditional pot pie, this filing is stuffed between two layers of flaky pastry.

Make it your own:

  • Try skipping the bottom crust and putting the filling directly in the pan. Top it with buttermilk biscuits instead.
  • Add more veggies such as corn, diced potatoes, mushrooms, or your little one’s favorites.
  • Try using leftover turkey and serve it with cranberry sauce for a twist on Thanksgiving flavors.
  • Try chicken pot pie pockets when you’re on the go.

Tuna pot pie

There is nothing fishy about this delicious pot pie idea to eat your omega-3s. Similar to tuna noodle casserole, this pot pie starts with canned tuna, adds a creamy mushroom or celery soup, a bag of frozen veggies and you’ve got filling. Top it with flakey pastry and you have a delicious way to get your toddler eating tuna, which is a great source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids.

Make it your own:

  • Try adding shrimp, lobster, or cooked white fish.
  • Add cheddar cheese or mozzarella cheese

Veggie Pot Pie

Using your favorite pie crust, store bought or homemade, chop up your favorite veggies. Give them a quick saute in a frying pan with olive oil, garlic, and onion. Add a bit of cornstarch to help thicken the mixture and get it in the oven to bake in its crust. This veggie pot pie is a real crowd pleaser and a great way to get even the pickiest eater to enjoy their veggies!

Make it your own:

  • Try adding carrots, cauliflower, garbanzo beans, potatoes, peas, corn, green beans, celery, or mushrooms.
  • Try adding oregano, curry powder, basil, parsley, or thyme to add flavor without adding salt.

Pot pies in your hand

Pot pies are perfect when you have time to sit down at the table. But if you're short on time, try chicken pot pie pockets. Pocket pies are smaller versions of pot pies, folded onto themselves so they can be enjoyed portably. You can add your favorite fillings to any chicken pot pie pockets. In fact, pot pies are a great way to make healthy eating fun for kids!

Make it your own:

  • Try filling it with quartered hot dog slices, peas, corn, and cheese
  • Add cooked ground beef, pickles, cheddar cheese, and tomato for a cheeseburger pocket
  • Add cooked ground turkey, beans, corn, taco seasoning, and the cheese of your choice for a taco pot pie pocket
  • Try adding leftover veggies to create a “new” meal
