Recipe Tips

Before you head off to make a pot pie in the air fryer, read through these recipe tips and substitutions so that you know what you’re up against (don’t worry, it’s easy!).

  • There is no need to defrost the frozen pot pie first. Just place the frozen pot pie into the preheated air fryer.
  • We made a frozen chicken pot pie in the air fryer and the brand was Swanson (a popular frozen food brand). There are other brands and other fillings (like beef of veggie) which you can choose to make. Keep in mind that the cooking time might vary slightly.
  • Our pot pie was 7 ounces so a smaller or larger pot pie will also change the total cooking time.

We use this air fryer for our recipes and it has been great.

Add the frozen pot pie to the air fryer.

Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

While you wait, cut small slits into the top of the crust of the pot pie. These will help with steam release.

When the air fryer is hot, add the frozen pot pie.

The top of the pot pie will end up slightly browned and crispy.

Cook the frozen pot pie for 19-23 minutes until fully heated through and slightly crispy on the crust.

The internal temperature should be 165 degrees Fahrenheit if it is a chicken pot pie.

The exact cooking time can vary depending on your air fryer and the size of the pot pie (larger pot pies will take longer).

Once the pot pie is done cooking, remove it from the air fryer tray and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then enjoy – but be careful, it will be hot!

Storage Tips

It’s best to eat air-fried pot pies when they are fresh and warm. These kinds of pot pies are usually “personal-sized” servings.

You could keep leftovers covered up and stored in the fridge – but the inner broth/filling might make the crust mushy quite quickly.

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen pot pie (approximately 7 ounces)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. While you wait, cut small slits into the top of the crust of the pot pie. These will help with steam release.
  2. When the air fryer is hot, add the frozen pot pie.
  3. Cook the frozen pot pie for 19-23 minutes until fully heated through and slightly crispy on the crust. The internal temperature should be 165 degrees Fahrenheit if it is a chicken pot pie. The exact cooking time can vary depending on your air fryer and the size of the pot pie (larger pies will take longer).
  4. Once the pot pie is done cooking, remove it from the air fryer tray and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then enjoy - but be careful, it will be hot!

Notes

  • If your pot pie is bigger than 7 ounces, it'll likely take slightly longer until it is done cooking.
  • There's no need to defrost the pie - you can air fry it right from frozen.
  • We used a Swanson chicken pot pie which is a popular brand and a popular flavor. Of course, a beef pot pie or veggie pot pie is also an option.
