Chicken Parmesan Skillet Pot Pie

I have a thing for pot pies 🙂  They are the ultimate comfort food right?

This pot pie is not your traditional pot pie, but a Chicken Parmesan Skillet Pot Pie 🙂  You wanna know my favorite part of this dinner? It takes about 5 minutes to get into the oven. I LOVE dinners like that! It also comes out looking fantastic and quite impressive.

With school back in full swing, I like to have quick and easy dinner recipes on hand to feed my hungry boys. Hope you enjoy!


How to Make The Best Chicken Pot Pie

Here’s your line up. If you want to simplify this recipe even more, use your favorite jar of pasta sauce instead of the can of crushed tomatoes and seasonings 🙂  Your call.

Here we go. Start with your tomatoes. You don’t even have to heat anything on the stove top first. Love it!


Add some Italian Seasoning.

Like so 🙂

Add some kosher salt.

….and some fresh ground black pepper.

Give it all a little stir to combine.

Use about 3 cups shredded cooked chicken. I shredded a rotisserie chicken for this recipe. Nice and easy.

Add it to the sauce.

Give it a little stir.

Add some Parmesan cheese.

…and lots of mozzarella 🙂

Time for the pie crust.

Roll it over and press the edges around the skillet.

Cut some slits into the crust.

Like so 🙂

Brush a light coat egg wash over your crust.

Top with a little Italian Seasoning.

….and a little Parmesan cheese, now it’s time to bake! 40 to 45 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Ahhhhh 🙂  I like to let the pie sit for 10 minutes before serving. Gives the filling time to set up a touch.

  • Oven


  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 cups cooked shredded chicken I used a rotisserie
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozarella cheese
  • 1 refrigerated pie crust room temperature
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tbsp shredded parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Pour tomatoes into 9 inch cast iron skillet. Season with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, stirring to combine. Add chicken and gently stir to incorporate into sauce. Top with Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses.
  • Unroll pie crust and lay over chicken and cheese. I pressed the edges around the skillet, but feel free to tuck it inside the skillet if you desire.

    What a great idea. Easy and delicious I’m sure. And the possibilities are endless, I’m thinking upside down pizza myself!

  2. morgan rayl

    QUESTION?……we dont eat tomatoes here at the house (citrus allergies) But we LOVE Alfredo Chicken Parm. Do you think this will with Alfredo sauce on the bottom?

  3. Erika

    Ooooh this looks so yummy and comforting. I will definitely be making this soon! Thanks for the recipe 😉

  4. jenna

    what a great recipe for busy weeknights. cast iron skillets are amazing, aren’t they! everyone needs one.

  5. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat)

    I just bought my first cast iron skillet (yes, I’ve been hiding under a rock) so this would be the perfect recipe to test it out with!

  6. Chelsea Strong

    I just pulled my pie out of the oven! It looks and smells delish. I just used a regular pie pan – I don’t have a skillet. Thanks for the dinner idea. 🙂

  7. Sharon

    This is two of my favorite things combined… I love chicken parm and love pot pies, oh and I am on a big comfort food kick and this fits like a glove lol. Can’t wait to try this one!!

  8. Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic

    Awesome recipe – I love how it is perfect for the coming colder months and doesn’t take much effort to make. I love chicken parm and it’s a great idea to make it into a pot pie!

  9. sandra

    I love that it’s one big family sized pie. And how quickly does it come together?! Yummy idea.

  10. Emily

    This is brilliant! And I just bought myself a shiny red cast iron skillet so this may be my maiden recipe. Yum!

  11. Sarah K.

    I just got my first cast iron pieces and I think this may be the perfect recipe to break them in! Question… I read that acidic ingredients like beans and tomatoes aren’t great for cast iron, do you find that to be true, did your tomatoes taste funny? Other sites say it’s great to use them becasue they up the iron content of that acidic ingredient. Thoughts?

    1. Jenny

      You know Sarah, I haven’t heard that information about tomatoes. I don’t think there was any unusual taste with the tomatoes 🙂

  12. Lana @ Never Enough Thyme

    What a fantastic recipe! I love one-pot dishes like this that are just bursting with flavor. A few minutes work and dinner’s in the oven. Gotta love it.

  13. Bee (Quarter Life Crisis Cuisine)

    Oh my goodness! This looks so tasty! I love the idea of an easy skillet pie! I bet I could edit it to be a regular chicken pot pie too… great idea, now I just need a skillet…

  14. stephanie

    I dont own a cast iron skillet. Is there any other type of pan you can use to get the same results? Thanks!!

    1. Melanie

      I was thinking the same thing! I bet a round baking dish would be just fine. I have a cast iron skillet, but I don’t like using it.

      1. Sarah K.

        Head to Fred Meyer this week! They have a buy one get one FREE deal going on right now (at least here in Oregon) which includes Lodge Logic cast iron! 🙂

      1. Amanda

        A Babycake Maker does wonders on little pot pies. I found this site searching for more recipes for it. Great investment.

    2. Barbara

      I say get yourself a cast iron pan, AND a cast iron dutch oven! (Respectfully, of course) Nothing cooks like cast iron. I use my cast iron for pan pizza too. You can’t beat it for slow cooking, or for searing meat. I’m sure you can make this without for now, but keep an eye out at yard sales (the older the better). I’m a cast iron pot freak, have been for 30 years.

  15. Lori @ RecipeGirl

    You’re so good at that one dish dinner kind of thing. That’s SO not my thing! I want that purple brush!!

  16. Michelle

    Awesome… this would also work great for hamburger pot pie too! Think I just came up with my supper for tonight! Thank you for sharing!

  17. Karly

    Simple and delish! Never thought of baking a pot pie in the cast iron skillet before. That’s kind of brilliant.

  18. Caroline @ chocolate and carrots

    I’m with you. Pot pies are such amazing comfort food. Mmm…this is a great twist! 🙂

  19. Holly @ The Runny Egg

    I am also a big fan of pot pies and casseroles — they are so easy to make and I love having leftovers for lunches and those late nights when no one wants to cook.

  20. Denise @ TLT - The Little Things

    Loving this pot pie, it does remind me somewhat of a pizza. But then in pie form! Will try it for sure.

  21. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga

    I love that purple brush you used…so cute!

    And I am jealous of all the natural light in your kitchen. No matter the time of day, my kitchen is NEVER that pretty with light streaming in.

    Great pics & recipe, as usual!
