We have done that several times and either served dinner rolls on the side or not at all.

Here are a few questions you might have before you get started on this one.

Can you put a pot pie in the air fryer?

Well, this is kinda’ a way to make one. You’ll use the pressure cooker function as well though to make the “filling”. Air crisp lid will be used at the end to cook the biscuits or pie crust on the top.

Why is my Ninja Foodi counting up?

This occurs when the cook time you input has elapsed and it is starting to naturally release the steam. If you want a quick release you’ll need to avoid it from counting up and flip the steam valve when it hits 0.

Why do they call it a pot pie?

Originally it was created on a ship as an easy way to use up leftover chicken. Adding vegetables and liquid into the mix and baking it inside pie crusts made it a “new meal” that everyone loved.

Of course you could use other proteins too, especially after Thanksgiving. We love an easy leftover turkey pot pie as well. Use what you have I always say!

Pressure cookers are amazing. To be able to cook chicken breasts from raw to so tender that it falls apart with a fork in 12 minutes has been a game changer for us.

Better yet, being able to cook frozen chicken in a pressure cooker takes it even a step further.

Let’s be honest, I can be kinda’ forgetful and with this kitchen hack I can always have a homemade dinner on the table each night.

  • If you’re going to make chicken soup and skip the carbs then you’ll stop at this step.
  • Yes you’ll still take the protein out, dice it up and put it back in with the vegetables.
  • Add the milk and thicken with some flour but the biscuits can be left off.

Just ladle it out into bowls and enjoy.

BUT if you want the whole shebang, then keep going and add that extra layer on the top.

That is where the Foodi comes in handy. You can air fry or bake / broil the crust and not transfer it to another dish.

  • NO oven or broiling necessary with this pot.
  • Let’s face it, who wants more dishes to wash anyway??

Do all the chopping and prepping, then you can throw it all in and go.

Time needed: 25 minutes.

Ninja Foodi chicken pot pie

  1. Add ingredients

    Put everything except milk, flour and biscuits into your pressure cooker.

  2. Cook

    Close pressure lid (lid that isn’t attached) and pressure release valve and set to high pressure for 12 minutes then quick release the pressure. Complete quick release and carefully lift the lid away from you.

    Remove chicken and cut/dice on a cutting board.

  3. Saute

    Select sear saute button and bring contents to a boil. Whisk in 1/4 c. flour until smooth and contents begin to thicken. Then add milk and chopped chicken.

    Allow to boil again, stirring for about 5 min. so sauce can continue to thicken.

  4. Add topping

    If using a Ninja Foodi leave filling inside pot and turn saute function off. Close crisping lid and select 360 degrees for 8 minutes for biscuits, flip each one over after 4 minutes. For pie crust select broil for 9 minutes.

    Using an Instant Pot; transfer this chicken filling to a prepared baking dish (spray with non stick spray). Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

    Put biscuits evenly across the top of your chicken filling. Or lay refrigerated pie crust piece across the top

    Transfer mix to a baking dish. Lay biscuits on top. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 minutes or until biscuits have browned and cooked through. Can brush with melted butter on tops when done if desired too.

  5. Cool

    Allow dish to cool for 15 minutes after it is done before serving so it can continue to thicken

Talk about comfort food in no time. For a traditional but simple chicken pot pie it will take you closer to an hour to prep and bake. With this, cooking is complete quick.

You can really use whatever you have on hand as far as vegetables go when you add the broth to the pot. Load it up if you like. Just remember to keep the pieces large. Most veggies are softened in about 3 minutes on high.

  • For crispy biscuits set time to 10 minutes or so, but I do recommend flipping them halfway thru.
  • If you use a sheet of pie crust there is no movement required and it will cover the entire top like a pie.

Normally I recommend that you preheat for 5 minutes before starting but for this it wouldn’t be possible, that is okay.

Looking forward to making this, but I wanted to use left-over turkey. Would I cut the pressure cooker time down? You always have the best recipes and we love you for them. BTW, is there a trick to reheating something in an oven-proof dish in my Ninja Foodi?

I just made some with leftover turkey, I didn’t PC at all. Just sautéed the ingredients together until the onions softened & carried on per the recipe.
