Reviews for Classic Chicken Potpie
"This is a delicious recipe. I sauted cubed chicken with one chopped onion and set that aside. I doubled the white sauce using low sodium chicken broth and skim milk. MIxed the sauce with chicken, onions and vegetables and covered with pie crust. Next time I want to substitue the pie crust with puff pastry. really and easy to make"
"Hubby ate it w/o complaint except when dishing it out, he said, "It doesn't look the same" (as the former CPP.) I halved the recipe, using 10 oz. chicken broth, 1 1/2 tsps. chicken Better Than Boullion, about 1 1/2 tsps. Trader Joe's Poultry Rub, omitted the 'shrooms & onions, substituted 3T. organic corn starch, and substituted torn pan-toasted 3 Bakers gluten free bread coated with 1/2 cup melted butter. It's is simpler & quicker to create than my former recipe. Sorry this is so long."
"I made this because I could not access my usual recipe box on Taste Of Home tonight. For some reason. I often find the website to be difficult when I use my IPad. I would make more flour butter sauce next time because mine was not too creamy. The store was out of pearl onions today so I used regular onion and it was fine. But overall, my family ate it so that is a success in my book."
"It was really good. I did both the bottom and top crust. Super easy to make too."
"Didn't use pearl onions, red instead, no mushrooms. Delicious. Will be making again!"
"Wonderful and easy to make. I will make this again for sure. The only things I changed was I made double crust and used chopped onion."
"I make this recipe religiously! My family loves it and its a great way for my kids to get a ton of vegetables. I use fresh mushrooms and add celery for that yummy crunch. Absolutely delicious recipe!"
"I made this tonight because my boyfriend said that he wanted chicken pot pie kfc style. I bought 6 soup mugs and double the recipe and it only filled 5 of the mugs. Everybody raved about this meal and want me to make it again. It is really easy to make."
"This was a good, quick, semi-homemade meal. I think I needed to mix the gravy with the vegetables better. I was in a hurry and just poured it on top and the gravy just sat there and didn't coat evenly. I will try it again and see if I need to adjust my rating. I used chopped onions and veggie broth with chicken bouillion (since I had one opened in the fridge). Tasted fine! Will make again!"
"This was really good! Had leftovers for lunch the next day. Will make again."
