Talk About Your Comfort Food: Chicken Pot Pie

So, I don’t really do vegetables. I, therefore, have a daughter that doesn’t really do vegetables, either. However, when I make this Chicken Pot Pie, she gobbles up everything on her plate, veggies included.

It’s parental trickery at its best.

Don’t look at me that way. You do things like this too.

Come along with me…to the dark side.

Here’s what you’ll need for the journey

1 1/2 cups cooked chicken (I used baked breasts that I cut up. You can pull chicken off the bone. Get one of those roasted ones from the store. In a pinch, I sometimes use the canned stuff. Don’t tell anyone. I’m so ashamed.)
1 can Veg-All
2 cans potato soup
2   9-inch pie crusts (If you want to make them, more power to you.  I’m far too lazy busy for that.)
1/2 tsp. thyme (This is the must-have ingredient.  It’s the kicker in this recipe.)
1/4 cup milk
pie plate

Preheat the oven to 400.

Spray the pie plate with Pam.

Lay the first crust on the bottom.

Since we’re walking on the wild side, be a rebel and don’t even bother to press it down flat. The filling will take care of that for you.  Sometimes the best way is the lazy way.

Now, mix the filling ingredients together in a mixing bowl: chicken, potato soup, Veg All, thyme, milk.

When they’re mixed up good, pour the mixture into the pie crust.

Distribute it evenly and top with the other crust.  Fold the crust over on the edges and cut slits in the top for venting. Still walking on the wild side. Now, we’re cutting the pie crust.

With a knife.

Reminds me of Bon Qui Qui’s, “I will cut you!”

Okay, so violence is not the answer.

At this point, it should look like this:

Put the thing in the oven. I put it on a baking sheet first, in case any of the chickeny goodness bubbles out.

Bake it for 50ish  minutes.

When it’s done, it’ll look like this.

Let it sit for a few minutes and cool off ‘cuz the insides are like hot lava.  I’m living dangerously, but that’s just nonsense.

Cut it into pie-like slices and serve.


Welcome to the dark side.  I’m your leader.  Call me Darth Vader.

  1. Ok, I’m bookmarking this one. My hubby will love me for this. They poor guy has had to satisfy his chicken pot pie cravings with Mary Callendar’s frozen version, which is not bad (if you ignore the 40+ grams of fat per serving). Homemade always scores big point at my house, though. 🙂

    Thanks for the inspiration and the easy steps.


  2. Sounds quick and easy. Just checked with DH and he’s thumbs up on Chicken Pot Pie! I came home tonight to the smell of crock-pot chili from your post. Delicious! Made it up last night and DH put it in the crock and plugged it in since I was already at work. Got to like that! Thanks again!
