Here’s how to make homemade Crockpot Chicken Pot Pie with a Biscuit Topping:
- First, set a large skillet over medium heat, and add the butter. Once the butter has melted, whisk in the flour until smooth to make a roux. Continue whisking and cook the roux for a few minutes until it’s golden.
- Then stir in the onions and cook until soft. Whisk in the water, chicken base, and poultry seasoning. Keep whisking and simmering to form a gravy.
- Set out a large 6+ quart slow cooker. Carefully pour the gravy into the slow cooker. Add the diced chicken, frozen mixed vegetables, and chopped parsley, and stir well.
- Cover the crock pot and set on HIGH for 3-4 hours or on LOW for 6-7 hours.
- About 30 minutes to dinner time, make the biscuit topping. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees (or the temperature listed on the can of biscuits.) Use kitchen shears to snip 5 biscuits into 8 pieces each. Spread the pieces out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake the biscuits for several minutes until golden brown.
- Once the biscuit pieces are puffy and golden, stir the chicken pot pie filling in the crock pot and place the biscuit topping evenly over the filling.
- Ladle the slow cooker chicken pot pie into bowls, including a few pieces of the biscuit topping in each portion. Sprinkle on a bit more fresh chopped parsley and serve warm.
If you know that you’ll have leftovers, keep portions of the biscuit pieces to the side and store them separately from the filling. Both the chicken pot pie filling and biscuits will keep well for up to 3 days in the fridge.

How Can I Make Crock Pot Chicken Pot Pie with a Pastry Crust?
Missing the pastry top? You can skip the canned biscuits if you like. Instead, lay a refrigerated roll-out pie crust on a baking sheet. Use a pizza cutter to cut the pie crust into 1-inch diamonds. Then bake according to the package instructions. When ready to serve, sprinkle the pie crust pieces over the top of the chicken pot pie filling.
