Chicken Pot Pie Noodle Skillet

I don’t remember my mom ever making chicken pot pie. And whenever someone else would serve it to me, it was just off putting. Probably because as a kid, I hated peas, carrots, and celery. And as much as I love a crust, it wasn’t enough to sell me.

Well, fast forward to adulthood where I love peas and carrots. Plus, egg noodles coated in a creamy bath is pure delish.

Doesn’t chicken pot pie have a crust?
Yep, traditional pot pie has a crust. In this recipe, the noodles replace that. It’s just a different take on pot pie, but just as yummy!

10 ounces egg noodles
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 medium sweet onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups frozen peas and carrots, thawed
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 cups cooked chicken breast, cut into small cubes

Cook noodles al dente, according to package directions.
In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion, garlic, and peas and carrots; season with the salt and pepper. Cook for about 3 minutes until onions are soft and translucent. Stir in the flour until combined.
Pour in the chicken broth and heavy cream; bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer. Stir occasionally until thickened, about 5 minutes.
Drain the pasta and add to the skillet, along with the chicken. Taste and season with a touch more salt and pepper, if necessary.
Serve hot and enjoy!
