MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 15, 2014

"Sounds so good but I am going to try boiling the vegs in some of the chicken broth, using the broth as directed after Draining . It should give it a better flavor"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 10, 2014

"I made this last night and my family absolutely loved it it was the first time my kids ever had chicken pot pie I used mix vegetables instead of the carrots and peas separate and added celery salt I made 2 pies and it was all gone in 35 min great recipe after that my wife wants me to cook every night"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 9, 2014

"This is a fantastic recipe. It is one of my go-to recipes when making a meal for a friend.. I can make one and have an extra to take to someone or leave in the freezer for a busy night."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 3, 2014

"This is great! I made my own crust and it was much better. I also used our leftover turkey from thanksgiving, which is now becoming a tradition that the whole family loves. Much better than turkey sandwiches every day for a week.

I cut back on the butter (by half) and used sour cream in lieu of milk as we never seem to have milk in our house. It turned out great! It's hard to find a recipe that produces a thicker pie (versus a thin one). I will always use this recipe from now on!"
