I remember Sunday dinners at my grandma's farm. Chicken potpie was probably second in popularity only to chicken and dumplings. I like to collect heritage recipes from my area and hope to compile them someday into a cookbook.
I created a new title for my mom's pot pie recipe while trying to come up with a clever menu for our Presidents' Day Party. An old political slogan came to mind that fit the theme and my main dish just fine! It's chock-full of chicken and vegetables.

"This hearty meal-in-one takes just 10 minutes to assemble before popping it in the oven," says Dorothy Smith of El Dorado, Arkansas. Not only is it easy to prepare, it's easy on your budget at just 54 cents a serving.
Why look for potpie in the frozen food aisle when this easy, homemade version tastes much better? Under its golden-brown crust, you'll find the ultimate comfort food for kids and adults. —Amy Briggs, Gove, Kansas
Here is from-scratch comfort food at its finest. The pies might take a while to prepare, but the chunky chicken and veggies in the creamy sauce and flaky crust will impress and satisfy! —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
My aunt came up with this recipe, and I tweaked it to fit my family's tastes. I think they like it so much because of the sage—it brings a totally different flavor to the dish. —Lysa Davis, Pine Bluff, Arkansas
My kids love chicken potpie, and I really like that this is so quick and easy to put together with frozen veggies and store-bought gravy. To make it even simpler, my friend and I decided to top it with a biscuit crust instead of homemade pastry. It’s delicious! —Linda Drees, Palestine, Texas
