Ready made pie crusts make this homestyle Chicken pot pie recipe super easy. A 10-ounce package of frozen oven-roasted diced chicken, thawed, and a 16-ounce package of frozen vegetables can be substituted for the canned chicken and vegetables. This ultimate-comfort food-chicken recipe is perfect for a weeknight dinner. You can make it ahead and enjoy leftovers throughout the week.
2 (9-inch) refrigerated pie crusts
1 (6 3/4-oz.) can chicken, chopped
1 (16-oz.) can mixed vegetables, drained
1 (10 3/4-oz.) can cream of chicken soup
1/2 teaspoon celery flakes
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
How to Make It
Fit one pie crust into a 9" pie plate. Combine chicken and remaining 5 ingredients in a bowl; pour into pie crust.
Moisten edges of pie crust with water; top with remaining crust. Fold edges under and crimp; cut slits in top. Bake at 400° for 45 to 50 minutes; let stand 10 minutes before serving.
Serve with a side of creamy mashed potatoes or a simple, fresh green salad. If you're looking for a healthier option, use a gluten-free pie crust. If you have more time on your hands, you could also make your own crust. Making your own crust allows for healthier options as well: cauliflower crust, corn crust, or sweet potato crust.
My husband and I decided to try this recipe and fell in love! I did change a couple of things. I used rotisserie chicken instead of canned chicken (yuck) and I also added artichoke hearts which added a much needed slight bitterness to it. I didn't have poultry seasoning so I just looked up what it traditionally in it and I added a mixture of herbs that I did not measure but it came out tasting perfect!
I parboiled fresh boneless chicken in Chicken broth, then followed the easy direction..but added scallions, sweet potatoe parboiled in the chicken broth and cut into chunks,adobo, thyme, little garlic (garlic salt would work) and used the cream of chicken soup and frozen mixed veggies. I know I shouldn't review if I added to the recipe, but feel the basic recipe gave me great ideas. excellent. (loved using the predone pie crusts. made it all so easy.)
