    I have never used curry, and hate to buy it, and find out we don't like it. This is due to growery budget. Suggestion on what brand curry for a newbie,does it taste similar to anything I might be familiar with? Hate to rate it a 2 but they force you to select a rating even if you haven't tried it. Thanks, Sat97

    There's no curry or chicken listed in the ingredient list. Am I missing something????????

    I followed the recipe as described. This was delicious. Added some different vegetables that I picked up at the Farmers Market but otherwise no change. I will be making this again and I've already got a spare in the freezer.

    Good, unusual recipe. All of my kids liked it, as did I. I followed the instructions exactly and it turned out well.

    This was excellent! Lots of flavor and very filling. I did use a store-bought crust and used ground chicken. Will definitely make again.

    Made this on a weeknight a few days ago and still eating it for leftovers. Didn't have curry in the house, so I made my own. (It's just a mixture of spices; you can easily make your own version.) Also left out the mushrooms since I don't like them. I made it in a 13 x 9 pan, and the crust didn't quite cover it. Overall, this was really good. I wouldn't call it a pot pie, to be honest. It doesn't deliver the "gravy" that a traditional pot pie provides. Biggest complaint is that it's just too many steps, especially for a weeknight dinner. I probably won't make it again, for that reason. But it's worth a try at least once!

    This recipe was great. My only modification was to add a little extra garlic, as I always do. I will absolutely make it again, probably adding carrots and green beans for fun. My family loved it!

    Actually, I would rate this dish "cannot make". The recipe as presented on 10/23/09 on the CL website appears to be for some sort of cake, not a chicken potpie. I would love a recipe for curried chicken potpie. Perhaps the CL web gurus will fix the mistake.

    I made this last night for a Pie contest and actually ended up winning 3 of the 5 categories, including "Best Pie Overall". It turned out better than I thought. The only problem I had, was that I didn't roll out my crust big enough to cover my casserole dish. So when it went into the oven, the sauce bubbled up over the edges and onto the crust, but that was my mistake. This recipe will definitely become apart of my cookbook staples!! Loved it!

    This was absolutely DELICIOUS! Our whole family loved it, even the picky eaters. Definitely a keeper!

    Sooooooo good! Even my three kids, ages 10, 8 and 6, ask for this on a weekly basis and my husband can't wait for leftovers! The only thing I do differently is use my own crust recipe and substitute sweet potatoes for regular potatoes. Other than that this is a stupendous dish and one that has been in our weekly rotation for years!

    DELICIOUS!!! My fiance and I just finished eating this meal with the family and everyone raved over it. We added a tablespoon and a half more curry powder, an extra handful of raisins and one more tablespoon of corn starch to give it the perfect thickness. Will DEFINITELY be making this again!

    Just made this and looooooooved it. Skipped the raisins because raisins... bleh. But to each their own :-P The crust is reeeeeally good, which I was surprised given how simple it is. I think I'll use it on other improvised casseroles!!

    My husband and I enjoyed this recipe. Next time I will use sweet potatos in place of white, but other than that I thought it was really good. I used some leftover scraps from a pie crust that I purchased for another meal, rolled them together and topped. I have to comment on the raisins, golden raisins are phenomenal. I noticed some people left them out and that is definately a mistake in my opinion thats what makes this dish so special. Throw some in you will not be sorry!

    I was not a huge fan, even though I love curried chicken and pot pies. I left out the raisins, which I think was a mistake as the pie itself lacked a sweetness I think it needed. I made the crust with rendered duck fat that I had rendered from another recipe. It has a similar fat content to vegetable shortening and is healthier. Plus, it added a nice flavor and flakiness. The biggest disappointment is that I wanted the taste of coconut milk in it to balance the curry and it wasn't there (obviously). If I were to make it again, I might replace some of the broth with lite coconut milk.

    We loved this, though it was a lot if trouble to make. It might be easier if yo bought the pie crust.
