Reviews forFavorite Chicken Potpie
"YUMMY!You do not need to look for another pot pie recipe.This is it!"
"I was really excited about this, but after spending much time on it, I was disappointed as it seemed bland except for the fact that there was way too much of a thyme taste. Next time, I'll cut the thyme and add other seasonings."
"So my fiance and I are both pretty indifferent to chicken pot pie, but I found myself browsing recipes in order to use some extra chicken I had before it went bad. I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. Upon eating one bite, he says, "this has to go into the rotation!". We both then devoured the tastiest chicken pot pie ever created. I did do a few things differently. I seared 5 chicken breast strips in vegetable oil that I coated in garlic powder, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. I was out of thyme and thought the italian seasoning might add the missing flavor to the dish. I used one whole can of drained carrotts, and half the amount of the rest of the items the recipe called for. After adding the cubed chicken I cooked prior, the recipe was still enough for 2 pies. I did not have 4 pie crusts so I used my largest round corningware casserole dish in place of a pie pan, which provided room for the entire mixture. It worked perfectly! This is definitely in the rotation from now on!"
"This is the BEST chicken Potpie I have ever tasted. This is a keeper!!! Thank you for the recipe."
"How do you print out this recipe. Don’t see an option. Thanks"
"I followed the recipe but left out the potatoes (dint want to over starch or whatever) and no chicken as i dont eat it. Added steak seasoning and onion salt. i used frozen veggies. I used pork shoulder that i made a few days earlier. IT WAS DELICIOUS! Now if i had known pot pies were this easy. I feel so silly buying them. My store bought pie crust wasn't any good so i had to improvise with pizza dough. YUMMM."
"This is such a versatile and great recipe. I double recipe and freeze extra in pans without crust. Put Crust In A Pan Add Filling And bake!"
"I have been making this recipe for several years and it's a favorite for everyone I've fed it to. My kids in particular love it. To save prep time I use 16 oz frozen diced potatoes and 16 oz frozen mixed veggies. I also decreases the thyme to 1/2 tsp. I do end up making 3 pies using these amounts. Lately my kids have decided they don't like the crust as much so I only put crust on the top. It's definitely time consuming to make, but having 2 spare in the freezer makes it worth it. Plus I love it so much!! The reheat from frozen instructions are spot on. If you haven't tried this, you are missing out!"
"This is a GREAT recipe! I've made it many times and it has become a family favorite. It is pretty time consuming but it is SO worth it--the leftovers are delicious! This is what real "comfort food" tastes like!"
