What do you get when you combine a baked potato with all the comfort and goodness of a chicken pot pie, but without all the work? Chicken Pot Pie Potatoes, that's what!
I love sharing recipes and ideas with you here on my blog. Each and everyone I bring to you holds a tiny piece of my heart.
That said, this easy chicken dinner recipe for chicken pot potatoes is one I'm extra excited about sharing, and it's one I've been waiting to bring to you for a long, long time.
The ingredient list:
- Russet Potatoes
- Cooked Chicken (rotisserie chicken or leftovers works well for this recipe)
- Frozen Peas and Carrots (frozen and thawed)
- All-Purpose Flour
- Chicken Broth or Stock
- Dried Sage
- Dried Rosemary
- Vinegar (just a touch)
Why this easy dinner recipe works?
Since I know that everyone is super busy and that trying to figure out what to make for dinner can sometimes be a stressful situation, especially when the time is limited.
By taking advantage of leftover cooked chicken, or store-bought rotisserie chicken, this chicken comfort food is super easy, and extra quick, so even a novice cook can have this delicious meal on the dinner table in 15 minutes or less.
The easy instructions:
- Cook 4 potatoes in a microwave oven until cooked through (not shown).
- Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan.
- Add all-purpose flour to the melted butter.
- Stir and cook the roux (butter and flour mixture) for one minute over medium heat.
- Add the chicken broth and stir (or whisk) to combine.
- Cook and stir occasionally until the sauce is lump free and thickened.
- Add the chicken and thawed vegetables to the thickened sauce.
- Stir in the seasonings and vinegar.
- Heat through.
- Spoon the sauce and chicken over the opened, baked potatoes.
- Serve immediately.

This is such a great idea! I never thought of this before.

I love this idea! Especially with the more filling / nutrient-dense potato instead of pie crust. YAY!!!

Such a comforting looking dish! I love the way you put it over potatoes!
Renee J. (RJFlamingo) says
As it happens, I was planning on doing something with chicken and potatoes for supper, tonight. I think I'll make this! I'll have to cook my chicken first, but since it's boneless, skinless breasts, it shouldn't take much extra time at all. Thanks, Renée!
My pleasure, Renee. I know you'll enjoy them!

What an absolutely genius idea! Perfect for those cold winter nights where comfort food is needed!
Thanks for the comment, Crystal. However, spring and summer months can sometimes call for comfort food too. I made these on a hot day, and since they only take 15 minutes the kitchen was still cool, and so was I.
Emily @ Life on Food says
This dish is so cool. Taking a good dish and upping it to something better.
Thanks, Emily. Chicken Pot Pie is still one of my favorites, but when time is short chicken pot potatoes are the way to go!
