How to Reheat KFC Pot Pie? (avoid this method at all cost)

On a cold, rainy day, a KFC pot pie is a great way to warm up. It’s not too heavy or too filling, and it always makes you feel just right (at least that’s the way I feel about it). You can’t eat it all at once, which is the only problem…


How to reheat KFC pot pie?

Set your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and cover your pot pie with aluminum foil for the last part of the reheating process. Give it up to 20 minutes to heat up.

Why you shouldn’t warm up your pot pie in the microwave?

You should really fight the urge to warm up pot pies in the microwave. Here are some of the reasons…


  • If you use a microwave, the crust might get soggy.

  • You might end up with a pot pie that is warm on the outside but cold on the inside.

  • The filling might fall out and make a mess.

  • Instead of being crispy, the crust will be sticky.

  • The KFC pot pie comes in a foil pan, which means you can’t heat it in the microwave at all. Please don’t heat it up like that.


Now that you know how to reheat the pot pie, you may be curious about something else: how to store it. How long can it be kept?


We care about your health and how much you enjoy food, so we also have you covered there. In general, you should know that fast food doesn’t last very long.


Even though some fast food restaurants sell meals that can last for years, that doesn’t mean they taste good after a day or two. If you can, you should try to eat your KFC pot pie within a day or two of buying it. So, when you reheat it, it will still taste great, just like the first day.


Pot pies can be frozen, but since KFC’s pot pie is already cooked, you might not be happy with the results. The crust could end up wet or dry…


You can still try it, but ideally, you should not put your pot pie in the freezer and reheat it the next day. If you ever make a pot pie from scratch, you can safely freeze it as long as the crust isn’t cooked.


This will help the food last longer and taste better. You could also freeze the unshaped crust and the filling separately, which is probably the best way to freeze pot pies.



How can I keep the KFC pot pie from getting wet?

There are a few things you can do to keep the bottom crust of your pie from getting soggy when you reheat it. One way to do this is to put a paper towel on top of the crust and then wrap it in aluminum foil before putting it in a baking dish.


The resulting damp (but hopefully not wet) layer of paper will soak up any water on the top of the pie and keep it dry when you reheat it.


How to keep pot pies fresh?

The easiest way to store a pot pie is to keep it in the dish or tray it was baked in and cover it tightly with foil or plastic wrap. You can also put the leftover pie in containers that won’t let air in.


Pot pie should be kept in the fridge and eaten within three to four days. Let your pot pies cool to room temperature before putting them away. This keeps condensation from building up in their containers, which could make the pastry soft.


You might also want to cut your pie into slices before putting it in the fridge. This will make it easy to grab a single slice to reheat when you’re ready (but be careful not to lose any filling!).



How to Reheat a KFC Pot Pie Other Ways?

You don’t have to reheat your KFC pot pie in the microwave if you don’t want to. There are a few other ways you can do it. A pot pie is best warmed up in the oven…


Method 1:

A great way to heat up a pot pie is in an air fryer. Put the pot pie in the basket and heat your air fryer to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Use foil to cover any cut edges. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.

Method 2:

You can also reheat a pot pie on the stove if you don’t have an oven or air fryer. Cut the pot pie into pieces and put them in a pan over medium heat. Turn the pieces over after about 5 minutes. Cook for another 5 minutes, or until the food is fully heated.


Can you freeze pot pies?

Pot pies freeze well and keep their best taste for up to 6 months, depending on what they are filled with. You can freeze pies with either cooked or uncooked pastry so that you can reheat or bake them when you need to. Wrap pot pies tightly in foil or plastic wrap to keep them from getting freezer burn when you put them in the freezer.


How to freeze pot pies:


  • Let your cooked pies or pie fillings cool to room temperature. This is important so that when you freeze the mixture, big ice crystals don’t form.

  • If you’re going to freeze pot pies with uncooked pastry, add the topping.

  • Put the pot pie in its baking dish in the freezer, uncovered, for 2 to 3 hours, or until it is solid.

  • Wrap your frozen pot pie in foil or plastic wrap in a tight way. Use two layers to protect yourself from freezer burn.

  • For pies that have already been cut into pieces, wrap each piece in plastic wrap and then in foil.

  • Put in the freezer and use within six months.
