- 1/3 cup butter

Loved by my family. After making it for my family the first time, they loved it - thereafter I tweaked it a bit to my families taste. This is an awesome pie all around just as it is! Yummmmm

Really good. I used my own pastry and chicken broth as others suggested. Also I used fresh vegetables instead of frozen (and more than 1 cup).

Great recipe. I used my own crust recipe, only one for the top. I used the water that I cooked the chicken in, then added some chicken bouillon granules. Very tasty comfort food.

This was simply delicious and very comforting! My whole family loved it. The flavor and texture of the crust was so yummy. I also used chicken broth as other reviewers said.

This is one of my favorite recipes, I always double it & use an 8x11 glass dish. Don't be afraid of the dough, it really is easy to roll out & patch up if it gets a hole while assembling. Use chicken broth and a whole bag of mixed veggies or just peas & carrots. When I use the mixed veggies, I like the added corn & Lima beans-no one would eat a Lima bean in my house until this recipe. The taste is so home style & comforting..we love it. I must have made it 100 times...and will probably make it 100 more.

There's no better comfort food out there in my opinion but this recipe was great! I also use chicken broth if I have it on hand and will change out the vegetables depending on what the family feels like.

I have made this MANY times but I do change a couple of things: I don't add garlic as I did not like the taste in this dish, I use chicken broth instead of water in the filling mixture, and I use a whole small bag of mixed vegetables. Other than that - it is delicious. The crust is always flaky and very tender and quite forgiving. It doesn't have to be "perfect" and it just adds a wonderful texture to the pie.
