This is very good, but as others have written, it is labor intensive. Make sure you have plenty of time to make the filling. I have used both frozen pie crusts and pastry mix in a box. Question: Has anyone had trouble when adding the flour/broth mixture to the onions? Mine did not dissolve, and was quite lumpy, but I guess it did not matter in the long run. ETA: WOW! I just looked at the recipe and noticed they totally changed this step in the recipe! I guess I wasn't the only one where the flour/broth was a clumpy mess! AND the recipe has elminated steps too which will shorten prep time!!

Perfect the way it is written. Delicious simple and healthy. It is a bit of work to make the filling. I used a butter crust that I had in the freezer already. I think making the doe and filling for this along with the cook time would be more of a Sunday meal.

My family loved this recipe, but it is highly labor intensive. Premade crust and dried thyme would cut some prep time. The flavor is delicious. I used a little rosemary with the vegetables.

This recipe is fantastic! I used shortcuts: a rotisserie chicken, frozen diced peas and carrots, frozen diced potatoes I had on hand at home from my own garden. Then I did the crust in a food processor and made the sauce from scratch. It was done in a snap! Fast comfort food easy on calories when we needed it most. It's a keeper for us!

This takes some time so it's a great sunday dinner. I added more carrots, and 2 stalks of celery cut up and lots of garlic and more chicken, cooked rotisserie chicken works best. I used 4 cups chicken broth and added some chicken bouillon too and a little less flour. My wife and i love it.

My family loves this dish. It is a bit of work but it's worth it - so much tastier & healthier than the frozen pot pie from the grocery store. When making the crust I always use a bit more than the 5 Tablespoons of ice water the recipe calls for. Also, I use 1/2 tsp. dried thyme instead of fresh.
