Easy Peasy Chicken Pot Pie

Mention comfort food and chicken pot pie immediately comes to my mind. When it comes to homemade chicken pot pie I grew up on biscuit topped chicken pot pie, which happens to not be my favorite, so it was quite a few years before I decided to make my own. I love a flaky buttery pie crust outside to surround the vegetables, tender chicken and creamy filling. I can never decide which part I like better though, the crust or the filling. It's okay to like them equally though isn't it?

I am a firm believer that I should make most everything from scratch atleast once. Notice, I said most everything. I came up with Easy Peasy Chicken Pot Pie totally off the cuff one day a couple years back and it was so good and so easy peasy, pun intended that I just haven't seen the need to mess with a good thing. If my Big, Bad Dad aka Mr. Picky Eater, who happens to be a huge chicken pot pie fan likes my easy peasy version enough to request it I must be doing something right.

Chicken Pot Pie

Easy Peasy Chicken Pot Pie

1 package deep-dish pie crust (2 crusts)
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 can mixed vegetables
1/2 cup milk
2 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed

Preheat oven as instructed on pie crust package. In a medium bowl, mix together soup, mixed vegetables, milk, and chicken. Stir until combined. Pour into pie crust. Place second crust on top. Pinch edges together. Cut several slits in center of crust.

Bake as directed for double crust pie, or until crust is golden brown.

*You may find that you need more or even a little less milk - some brands of mixed vegetables seem to have more liquid than others. Just make sure your filling is pouring consistency but not runny. I highly recommend placing the pie on a baking sheet before baking to avoid having the ingredients bubble over into the oven. Talk about a mess!

I only recently made my first chicken pot pie and was so surprised at how much of a no brainer it really turned out to be - and yummy too. Your pie looks very appealing and makes me laugh at the same time. I recently took out a pie from my freezer that looked so much like yours - I was getting all hyped for a piece of apple pie, thawed it, go the ice cream out, cut into it and it was a meat pie....:(

Note to self: start labelling things

Your recipes look extremely delicious. I'm writing a cookbook celebrating the recipes special to mothers/children. I'm waiting until I know I have enough commitments from people, but if you (or anyone else reading this!) are interested, the website I'm collecting commitments from is: at thepoint

If you don't have time, I'd love if you could send this to other cooks/mothers/daughters that you think might be interested!

This looks yummy. I'm going to try it with venison instead of chicken (my husband hunts, so I have A LOT of venison).


Blogger jh said ... (7:20 PM) : 

I really like adding diced up broccoli, celery or carrots. It really increases the nutrition of the pie.

I find a great ingredient for chicken pot pies is thyme. I adore it, and it adds such a great flavor.
