The Oven is #1

If you want a perfectly reheated chicken pot pie that is not only crispy on the outside, but piping hot on the inside, then you definitely have to go with the oven.

You have to remember that the oven will take some time to heat it up, so keep that in mind as you proceed.


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Cover chicken pot pie with aluminum foil.
  • Place container in the oven and heat for 30 to 35 minutes.
  • Check to make sure the center is hundred and 165°F, this will indicated it is properly heated and ready.
  • Take out, allow it to cool a little and then serve.

Note: You can also reheat the pot pie in a toaster oven and get the same desired results

Do Not Use the Microwave

When it comes to reheating pot pies, it is a good idea not to use the microwave. You are basically going to mess up the crust as a microwave will just get it soggy. While the meal will be fully heated, it it won’t be as enjoyable, simply because the crust and everything else will just be mushy and disgusting.

If you really want to do it properly, stick with the oven reheating option of both, as this is by far the best option available. You cannot go wrong with this.
