Chicken Pot Pie

 Chicken Pot Pie features chunks of roasted chicken, corn, green beans, carrots, peas,  potatoes, and a creamy sauce in between layers of crust. Classic comfort food!

This Chicken Pot Pie takes me back to when I was a little girl. I remember eating the chicken, turkey and beef varieties. Chicken was always my favorite. I have fed the little frozen ones to my kids from time to time. We would make the slits in the top crust in the shape of a “C” or “T” or “B”, so we would know which was which.

I modified a recipe from Pillsbury and this is my version of Chicken Pot Pie. The pot pies I remember have potatoes in them, and since I love potatoes, I added some. I also cut the salt a little because we try to eat less sodium and the chicken broth has plenty (even though I buy the low-sodium type). That is really all I changed.

I wasn’t sure how this would turn out, being so large. Well, it turned out perfect. But, I could not get a slice out of the whole pie and onto the plate in one piece. It just ended up as a heap of yummy goodness on the plate. Not photogenic at all! But that’s okay, I am more concerned with flavor. We used to dump the little ones onto the plate upside down and chop it up so it would cool, and this was similar to that.

With nothing to flavor the sauce other than butter, broth, salt, and pepper, I was a little worried it would taste bland. I ran across a few recipes that used fresh herbs, but I just went with what was in the recipe I used as a base. So glad I did because the flavor was spot on.

Chicken Pot Pie would be great served with this Baby Greens Salad with Beets & Goat Cheese. Looking for a yummy dessert to serve after this? This Peachy Keen Cake with Cool Whip Frosting would make a great finish to this meal.

    Yum! Meat pies are always held in high regard! Our recipe is very similar, only we make a roux for the sauce. If it’s edible shove that stuff in a pie! It’s our southern mantra.
