How to Make Air Fryer Chicken Pot Pie

Making these personal-sized pot pies is so easy. Just follow the instructions below and you will have a delicious comfort food meal that your family will love in no time at all. 

Step 1: Mix together the chicken, vegetables, cream of chicken soup, and spices

Mix the chicken, veggies, cream of chicken, and spices together in a large bowl. Make sure chicken and veggies are fully coated. Set aside.

Step 2: Prepare the muffin cups, and get the dough ready

Open the can of biscuits and set them out separately. Spray 6 jumbo silicone muffin liners lightly with oil. Pinch off 1/4 of the dough from 6 biscuits. Set aside pinches of dough. 

Step 3: Shape the biscuits into the cupcake liners and air fry

Mold the 3/4 size biscuits to the inside of the muffin liners. Cook in an air fryer at 300 for 5 minutes. 

Step 4: Spoon the chicken mixture into the biscuit cups

Remove and spoon in the filling. You want to fill halfway pressing down to continue forming the crust into a cup. Continue filling up the rest of the cup until it’s about 3/4 full, with a little mound in the center. Repeat this for the remaining 5 pies.

Step 5: Seal the biscuit cups 

Use the remaining biscuits and the set aside pinches of dough to place a thin layer of dough over the pies to seal them. Using your fingers pinch the pie tops to the sides of the pie cups along the rim of the liner. 

Step 6: Poke holes in the top 

Make 4 little punctures in the top of the pies to allow for venting.

Step 7: Air fryer the pot pies

Continue to cook the pies at 300° for 20 minutes, or until the crust is fully cooked. Depending on the size of your basket and the closeness of the heating element, you may find that you’ll need to rotate the pies while cooking. 

Step 8: Make sure they don’t burn

You don’t want to burn the tops. If the top finishes while the cups still need cooking, wrap the pies in a layer of foil to protect the tops. 

Step 9: Cool slightly

Let it cool when finished and enjoy!

Serving Suggestions

Pro Tips

Here are a few tips to help make sure that your pot pie turns out perfectly every time that you make it. 

  • Don’t forget to spray the silicone baking cups with oil, this will help to prevent the pot pies from sticking. 
  • Make sure not to overfill the pot pies, you only want to fill them 3/4 full so that they have room to rise without spilling over. 
  • If you are using canned vegetables make sure to drain them well instead. 
  • If you aren’t a fan of cream of chicken soup, you can make a roux with butter, flour, and chicken broth for a creamy sauce without the condensed soup. 
  • You want the biscuit cups to be golden brown on top but not overdone so watch them closely and adjust your cooking time if needed. 
  • Be careful to not overload your air fryer basket, if you are using a smaller air fryer you will need to make these in batches. 
  • If the tops of your pot pies start to burn but the biscuits are still gooey on the inside then cover the tops of them with aluminum foil to prevent them from burning. 
  • I like to use the mixed vegetable blend that contains, peas, corn, and carrots. However, you can use your favorite blend instead. 
  • You could also use cooked beef if you prefer a beef pot pie. 
  • Add salt and pepper to taste to flavor your creamy vegetable filling.
