Individual Chicken Potpies Recipe

Publisher Photo
These little pies look so appetizing with their paprika-sprinkled crust and colorful veggies in a saucy filling. Always well-received by guests, they taste elegantly rich. Sometimes, I adapt the recipe and make one large casserole.

I made these yesterday for lunch. My boys loved them since they had been outside shoveling snow half of the morning. WHEM OT CP,ES TO CROTOZING THE INGREDIANTS i DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING IS HARMFUL AS LONG IAS IT IS DONE IN MODERATION. yES, THERE IS A LOW FAT sWOSS cHEESE CALLED aLPINE lACE, BUT WOULD THE TASTE OF THIS CHEESE HOLD UP IN THE DISH? iT IS A MUCH MILDER FLAVOR, AT LEAST i THINK SO AND i THINK THIS DIS NEEDS A BOLDER SWISS.

123Lon, did you make the recipe? I don't understand why people post a rating on here to either say that it looks good and they think they will make it, or to point out nutritional information that I can certaily read for myself. And taste of home, why is it a requirement to give stars? How can one give a star rating to a recipe they haven't tried yet?

Chicken potpies are delicious and a keeper in our home. My family simply loves them and it's a recipe we'll be making many more times, as it's so easy to make and so good to eat.

MY REVIEW

The sodium content of the recipe is huge, like 1/2 the daily allowance of sodium. Using low sodium chicken broth, and leaving out the salt in the pastry, and unsalted butter would be a start. If there is such a thing a low sodium swiss cheese that would be a good thing.
