The Absolute Best Ways To Reheat Chicken Pot Pie
A popular comfort food, chicken pot pie has a creamy base, containing chicken, peas, carrots, onion, and celery, wrapped inside a flaky crust. As far as leftovers go, finding a reheating method that retains the crispy crust and moist filling can be tricky, which is why we recommend one of these three methods.
Reheat in the Oven
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, place the leftovers on an oven-safe baking tray, and cover the pie with aluminum foil to prevent burning the crust. Place the pie in the hot oven for 20 minutes, then carefully remove and discard the foil, and return it to the oven for a few more minutes, before removing it to cool down.
Reheat in the Microwave
This method isn’t ideal since it doesn’t preserve the flaky crust, but it is a quick and convenient option. Cut the pie into slices and heat one slice at a time for approximately two minutes at the lowest power setting; if the pie is still cool, reheat for an additional minute, or until it’s warmed to your preference.
Reheat on the Stovetop
Skillets are perfect for reheating small portions of pie that have their ingredients encased in a crust, making chicken pot pie a good candidate. Coat your skillet in non-stick spray, place the pie slice inside, cover it with a lid, and allow it to warm for about five minutes — or until the center heats through — before serving.
