Reviews forIndividual Chicken Potpies
"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."
"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.LAG"
