My boys loved this. I omitted the milk in the filling because there seemed to be plenty of liquid already.
Every one enjoyed. Found recipe very easy. Also liked they told you wine to serve.
Good chicken pie!! I wasn't sure I had frozen peas and didn't want to dig through the deep freeze to see if I could find any, so I substituted frozen chopped broccoli so there would be some green in it. I was going to make my own pie crust, but decided not to bother because I had some biscuit mix, so I mixed some up and dropped biscuits over the top of the casserole. I cut down on the thyme, added maybe an eight of a teaspoon since I don't like things too heavily seasoned. Also, I halved everything as I just wanted one pie. Delish!! Will make again, and next time will probably make a pie crust from scratch when I'm not as rushed for time. Another thing....I don't think it needs a bottom crust, just one over the top.
You will never make another chicken pot pie after making this one! It is well worth the effort! If using frozen pie shells (like the tenderflake), I find I can get three pies out of this recipe! I also add chopped parsnips with the carrots and then cut down on the frozen veggies. The richness of the sauce is just incredible! Even my one year old eats an entire piece!!
This was wonderful...perfect combination of ingredients and very flavorful. It does take a while to put together, but a lot can be done ahead, e.g. cook and freeze individual bags of chicken to have on hand. To save time, I just bought packaged veggies (2) and added the chicken and potato. My husband loved it!
