"OMG. What. A. Recipe. To-die-for delicious! I want to add a photo of my pie, but there appears to be no manner in which to do so."
"This recipe was absolutely wonderful. I rolled my own crust so it took me a little longer. My whole family loved it. Even my very picky soon-to-be-10yr old liked it and asked for more."
"This recipe was fantastic! It took me one hour including the pastry dough( I used chef Ramsey quick puff pastry recipe) . My adjustments were ...I used baby potatoes with skin ,1 can of corn, 1 cup of peas, and 1 cup of vanilla almond milk. I used an extra 1/2 cup of chicken broth to compensate for the thickness of the almond milk.I did not use thyme or carrots because they are flavors my family does not enjoy!Bon Appetite!"
"Tasty Comfort Food . Substantial meal for a cold day. My husband loved it. The prep time is not accurate if you peal and cut your own potatoes, onions and carrots, count on prep time of at least 1 1/2 hours. If you buy a rotisserie chicken from Costco or another store , you need to buy two chickens for this recipe. This recipe makes 2 LARGE pies. It's enough, supposedly, to feed 16 people, but realistically 2 pies will feed about 8-10 adults because you will eat more than an eighth of a pie! We are average adults and the two of us ate a half of a pie... it's so heavy that you will not need anything else other than the pie for dinner. The diced potatoes get "lost" in the pie- maybe I should cut them in larger pieces next time. This would be a great hit for a pot luck."
"Wow this was phenomenal! I actually ran out of all-purpose flour for the first time in my life! I had to work with whole wheat flour. I made my own crust-highly recommend- and the filling was just perfect. My husband said this was Amazing! My go-to recipe was the All-American Turkey Pot pie on TOH, but this one wins! However, I will continue to make the crust from the turkey recipe-its to die for!"
