"This recipe got a great approval from my husband! For him, I couldn't add the onion. I used olive oil and skim milk and it tasted wonderful. Filled with chicken and vegetables, this recipe is a keeper!"

"I added a can of cream of chicken soup ( condensed ), half and half ( instead of 2% milk ) and

Diced potatoes ( 1 medium ). I made everything ahead and then heated everything up just before putting pastry top on and placed in oven. You may have to add a little more chicken broth. Do this to suit your preference. I also used canned carrots and frozen peas. Yummmmyyyy!!!!!!! Yummmmmyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!"

"this was an ok recipe. You need to cook it at a lower temp for a longer period of time. 450 for 20 minutes is too short its not cooked enough inside and the crust cooks quick. Overall it was ok"
