Air Fryer Frozen Chicken Pot Pie
Today we’re going to be sharing with you how to cook your favourite frozen chicken pot pies in the air fryer.
Up until testing these frozen chicken pot pies for you in the air fryer, it was the first time that I had eaten frozen chicken pot pies in years.
I love chicken pot pie, but I love the excitement of making it. I love making my air fryer pie crust, I love gathering the ingredients and cooking them, ready to stuff inside of my chicken pot pie and it brings me great pleasure to see the finished air fryer chicken pot pie.
But we have had a few requests recently for frozen chicken pot pie in the air fryer and thought it would be fun to go back to my teenage years and eat some!
The last time I had frozen chicken pot pie, I was sweet 17. It was the year 1999 and I was living on my own for the first time.
I say on my own, well technically I lived in a hostel. The grocery budget I had was £5 a week so on todays money that was about $8 and the only thing that I could find that came in on budget was frozen chicken pot pies.
I could have one each day for dinner with some canned peas and it was great. It was easy for when you’re at that point in your life when you can’t cook and easy for when you’re on your own.
I thought they were delicious and would have a different flavour each week. Though my favourite was chicken and vegetable.
Air Fryer Frozen Pot Pie
I love the taste and texture of air fryer frozen pot pie. You cook a frozen pie in the oven and it always has that soggy texture and often just doesn’t live up to what you expect from it.
Then you look at your heated frozen pot pie and compare it to the box and feel like you are the worst reheater in the world.
But cook frozen pot pie in the air fryer, and you are talking something much better.
The pie crust has that lovely crunch to it, and you want to binge on the pastry. Then the filling inside is perfectly cooked too.
This doesn’t just have to apply to frozen chicken pot pie in the air fryer, as any pie that you have previously frozen can be cooked or reheated using the air fryer.
Both were made from scratch and then frozen for later and we can place some pie in the air fryer, knowing it will do an amazing job of making it look brand new again and taste just as good.
So, do consider your air fryer for your frozen pot pies!

We currently own both and feel that they work alongside each other with them having different benefits. If you’re interested, I recommend you check out my article air fryer vs air fryer oven.
The air fryer oven is very good for cooking air fryer frozen pot pies. Not only can you cook more frozen pot pies in the air fryer oven, but it gives it a more natural cook and crisps up the pastry perfectly.
Cooking Frozen Pot Pie In The Air Fryer
Cooking frozen pot pie in the air fryer is so EASY. It’s a case of removing the frozen chicken pot pie from the freezer, removing the packaging, loading them into the air fryer and waiting for that amazing aroma to fill your kitchen of pot pie.
When you cook food in the oven, you often know when it is done from the lovely just cooked smell.
You don’t get this as often with the air fryer, but trust me, it happens with frozen pot pie in the air fryer.
