How to make Chicken Parmesan Pie (step by step): 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F, and spray an 8 inch round pie dish with nonstick cooking spray. Unroll the dough and use the pieces to shape a pie crust into your dish. This will require a little work and you might need to break some pieces and even things out. Prebake the dough for 5-7 minutes in the oven.
  2. Place a few tablespoons of the pasta sauce on the bottom of the pie crust.
  3. In a bowl, mix the shredded chicken with the remaining pasta sauce. Spoon it into the pie crust.
  4. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top, then the freshly chopped parsley.
  5. In a small bowl mix the oil, parmesan, and panko crumbs, then sprinkle it on top of the pie.
  6. Bake it in the oven for 15-20 minutes, checking that the dough does not burn.
  7. Cut it into six and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Tips and Tricks for Making Chicken Parmesan Pie: 

  • I cook my chicken breast in the crock pot with a little broth on low for about 4-6 hours. Thicken shreds up so nicely and you can store it in the fridge to use it for all kinds of meals. 
  • Chicken Parmesan Pie will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days so it’s perfect for lunch meal prep. It will also freeze well, if wrapped tightly, for up to three months.

  1. Um this looks good and I have it in the oven now but why is there no Parmesan in the recipe when it’s called chicken Parmesan pie? Is there none in it or is a step missing? I added a little in with the pinko and oil. I can’t wait to try more of your recipes.

    1. Hah, that’s a good question.. Do you know I had it in the plan to add a sprinkle of parmesan and then when I came to make it I had none on hand.. It is hard to find point friendly parmesan, where as I can buy light shredded mozzarella.. so it was only my intention to sprinkle a little on top.. I will have to update the recipe 😉 Hope you still enjoyed it!

      1. Yup it was great and I brought leftovers to work and everybody was asking what is was because it looked so good. I put a little grated Parmesan in with the panko. I don’t think it really added any points because it was a small amount.

  2. 5 stars
    I just tried this for dinner tonight. OMG, it was ridiculously good! I’m not sure what the best part was. The chicken filling itself, or the crispy topping, I even loved the crust edges. But I was the one at Thanksgiving who would eat a bit of turkey and like five crescent rolls and not much else, so I have always been a fan of those. I wish I’d discovered this site sooner!

  3. Delicious ?. I loved it! My son also loved it. Taste like lasagna and the crescent omg adds even more flavor. Thank you for this delicious recipe. So easy to make too.

    1. Not yet, working on it as best I can.. you will see all the nutritional info at bottom on the ones I have updated and it will show freestyle points

    1. It should work ok, I have not tried it for this recipe so I can’t give you an honest answer but I’d say give it a try 🙂

  4. hi, do you think it’d be okay to use the Pillsbury pie crust instead of crescent rolls? or would that totally ruin it?
