- 2 cups diced peeled potatoes
- 1-3/4 cups sliced carrots
- 1 cup butter, cubed
- 2/3 cup chopped onion
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1-3/4 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 3/4 teaspoon pepper
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 1-1/2 cups milk
- 4 cups cubed cooked chicken
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 1 cup frozen corn
- 2 packages (14.1 ounces each) refrigerated pie pastry
- Preheat oven to 425°. Place potatoes and carrots in a large saucepan; add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook, covered, 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain.
- In a large skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender. Stir in flour and seasonings until blended. Gradually stir in broth and milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in chicken, peas, corn and potato mixture; remove from heat.
- Unroll a pastry sheet into each of two 9-in. pie plates; trim even with rims. Add chicken mixture. Unroll remaining pastry; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in tops.
Bake 35-40 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Let stand 15 minutes before cutting.
Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked pies. To use, remove from freezer 30 minutes before baking (do not thaw). Preheat oven to 425°. Place pies on baking sheets; cover edges loosely with foil. Bake 30 minutes. Reduce oven setting to 350°; bake 70-80 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°. Yield: 2 potpies (8 servings each).

Reviews for Favorite Chicken Potpie
"Excellent, time consuming but so with it!"
"I love all the fresh ingredients! My kids love this, it's a good way to get some vegetables in them. The seasonings are perfect. I don't change a thing!"
"Awesome recipe!!My husband and son loves chicken pot pie and I typically buy them fresh from a warehouse club. Been wanting to make a pot pie from scratch and found this recipe. Made it last night and hands down it was the best pot pie they have ever had. I even ate it and I don't like pot pie!!Planning on making it agin and will swap out chicken with beef stew meat and beef broth."
"Great pot pie! I used frozen mixed veggies and southern style hashbrowns to cut down on some of the prep."
"Excellent recipe. I like to make a double batch and freeze the filling. Then I can make pies later when I'm having a busy week. This one is a keeper."
"Made this for dinner tonight and my husband, who usually isn't a pot pie fan, really loved it! I doubled the recipe and made it in a 10"X14" rectangular pan. Followed recipe except I omitted the corn and instead added more peas and carrots. I put two crusts on greased bottom of pan and two over the filling. Worked fine. I think the thyme is the pivotal ingredient, adding a piquant flavor overall. I froze portions for my sons to take when they stop by. Delicious recipe, will certainly make it again!"
"just finished making this and it's one of the best chicken Pot Pies I've ever eaten. Followed the recipe exactly and it's amazing.Most recipes online don't turn out so great but this one did.I'd let it sit a little longer than 15 min to set a little better but will be making this again and again."
"I have tried many pot pie recipes and this is hands down the best. I clicked on some of the other reviews that were 1/2 stars because I couldn't imagine why no one would like this. My best guess if you think it is too flour-y or too much thyme, then maybe try again because honestly I make these for anyone who is sick, birthdays, neighbors....and they rave constantly. Maybe a misstep in the recipe was done. The directions are correct and I like that they have the frozen bake time! It is listed separate for easy understanding! I love being able to have a frozen option such as this instead of soup/chili all the time."
