Frozen pot pie
A frozen individual pot pie is all you need for this recipe. We like to use a gluten-free pot pie but Marie Callendar’s pot pie and a Banquet pot pie are known to be delicious as well. You can also use a frozen turkey pot pie or beef pot pie if chicken isn’t your thing.
How long do you cook a pie in an air fryer?
Cooking an air fryer chicken pot pie takes much less time than cooking a pot pie in the oven or microwave. The air fryer is the best way to cook a frozen veggie pot pie or any pot pie!
The cook times are going to vary depending on what frozen pie you’re using, but generally around 15 minutes is enough time in the high heat. When the top of the pot pie is golden brown, you know it’s done.
Pro tip: Keep your pot pie in a closed air fryer basket to preserve heat until you’re ready to serve.
