Chicken Pot Pie Noodles – a fun twist on classic chicken pot pie using noodles!  Comes together in minutes so it is perfect for quick weeknight meals. 

I will admit, I am not sure that my mom ever made chicken pot pie when I was growing up.  Peas were one of the foods that I absolutely despised and was allowed to not eat.  And my dad hated anything that was even close to a soup or stew. Apparently pot pie was close enough, that it was never on the menu.  

But now that I can cook for myself, things like Beef Stew and Instant Pot Wild Rice Soup are on the menu often.

Turn classic chicken pot pie into an easy noodle dish!

 

If you have looked at any of my Dinner Recipes in the past, you know that I am a huge fan of pasta.  I could eat it in about any form, any day of the week!  So making chicken pot pie using egg noodles and not turning it into a pie is exactly what comfort food is to me. 

What’s In Chicken Pot Pie Noodles

  • Egg Noodles
  • Chicken (great for leftover or rotisserie chicken)
  • Butter
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Peas & Carrots
  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Chicken Broth
  • Heavy Cream
  • Ranch Dressing Mix
  • Salt & Pepper

This noodle version still has the classic creamy sauce with chicken, peas and carrots.  Just instead of a crust topping you are mixing it all with egg noodles.  But because I can’t get enough carbs, I am serving with buttery and flaky Easy Biscuits on the side.  So you kind of get the crust and the noodles in one.

Tips for Chicken Pot Pie Noodles

  • This is a great use for leftover chicken or even rotisserie chicken.  I like to get a rotisserie chicken from the store so I always have cooked chicken on hand.  Cut off all the meat and store 2 cups in a freezer safe bag, and then use in soups or anything else that calls for about 1 pound of cooked chicken.
  • Frozen veggies are a great short cut.  Most chicken pot pie recipes call for carrots, celery and onion to be sautéed and then peas are added towards the end.  I like to buy a package of frozen peas and carrots and then just use that in this recipe.  It makes for less chopping and it is quicker to make on busy weeknights. 
  • For a rich and creamy sauce heavy cream is the best choice.  But if you want to lighten it up a bit half and half works really well.  You could use whole milk as well if you have it.  The sauce will just be a little thinner. 
  • I take a shortcut and use ranch dressing mix for my seasoning.  It has most of the spices that are usually in chicken pot pie, it is just quicker and less work to measure 1 thing instead of 4-5 other spices.  Plus is just gives it that something extra and makes it anything but boring! Don’t want the store bought packet?

How to Make Chicken Pot Pie Noodles

Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for the FULL PRINTABLE recipe card.

  1. Noodles – I like to use wide egg noodles and just cook them according to the package directions.  
  2. Vegetables – Onions, garlic, peas and carrots are all cooked in melted butter until the onions are soft and translucent. 
  3. Sauce – Once the veggies are cooked mix in flour until it is all mixed in and there isn’t any white left.  Then slowly mix in the chicken broth and heavy cream.  This simmers for a few minutes to create a thick and delicious sauce.  
  4. Assemble – The noodles and cooked chicken all get mixed in with the cream sauce.  Everything gets tossed together until the noodles are coated and soaking up all that sauce.  Then it is ready to serve!

  1. It was an easy recipe. Followed it exactly. The creaming of the sauce went well. I did feel that the sauce was pretty bland. I ended up adding celery salt and lots of pepper to try and make it more flavorful.

    1. Please see the Recipe Tips section of the post that answers this question and lets you know the difference.

  2. I have everything for this except instead of frozen veggies I have canned peas , carrots also mixed veggies. Would that work or would it be mushy ?

  3. Huge hit in the house ! I added corn because I wanted to get rid of it and I also used canned peas and carrots which I added at the very end since that is what I had on hand . Turned out great !

  4. Tried this & needed to use up fresh carrots. Diced them & boiled a little, pretended they were in the bag of peas. Worked perfectly, and loved the recipe. It is a little bland but that allows the flavors of the sweet vegetables to shine. Family loved it.

  5. Loved it as something different to use up the leftover rotisserie chicken.
    I had to make a few changes. I didn’t have cream or ranch dressing mix, so I did half and half instead of cream and added a tbsp of sour cream and some Italian seasoning to make up for the flavor of the the missing cream and ranch. It was a substitute that worked out better than I thought.
    I also added a little less than a tsp of Better Than Bullion chicken flavor to oomph up the “chicken-i-ness”

  6. I can’t wait to make this one (with revisions to make it fit my super picky tastes)! I’ll omit the onion, use a couple dashes of garlic powder, add poultry seasoning and seasoned salt and black pepper, skip the ranch dressing mix, and serve the peas (buttered, with poultry seasoning and black pepper) on the side instead of in the noodles.
