This dish takes me at least an hour to prepare and there are a ton of dishes to clean up, but it is definitely worth it! This casserole is one of my family's favorites. I cook a whole chicken in the crock pot to use (usually cheaper than a deli roasted chicken). I also use a 13x9 pan. Delicious!
I made this with celery added into the onion. I also only put 2 cups of MUSHROOM broth instead of chicken. I added 1 cup of frozen carrots, 1 cup of fronzen green beans, 1 cup of frozen peas, and a little extra frozen corn. I added some parsely when you add the spices. :) It was delishious!!!!! I have no idea if it is fair for me to rate this recipe since I tweaked quite a few things, but I used this recipe to make the one I made. My kids loved it and asked for me to put it into their lunches AND make it again.
The filling is really delicious and full of flavor. The pastry is good but I might try the Bisquick topping next time and I did use the 9 x 13 dish which keeps tje oven clean :)
I made this in the individual ramekins as there are only 2 of us. I served it with a beet orange salad. Delicious. Now I put the rest of the ramekins in the freezer so I too hope they freeze well. We will see..... Well here is the follow up....the pot pies did not freeze very well. They tasted good but a little soupy. We ate them with spoons. So unless JenniferCooks had better luck than I did I would not recommend freezing.
Great recipe. I tweaked a little using what I had on hand. I used about 1 tsp of stone ground mustard instead of the dry, and 2% milk instead of cream (I had to add a little more flour). For the crust, I went with a standard bisquick topping (2 cups bisquick, 1 cup milk, 2 eggs), and followed other suggestions of using a 9x13 pan. Some of it is going in the freezer, so I'm hoping this is something that freezes and reheats well.
This recipe was fantastic. Good flavor. Even my husband, who doesn't like casserole type dishes, loved it! I fixed it in a casserole dish vs. individual dishes. We had our neighbors over to eat and they loved it. We even had leftovers for the next night and it tasted great as leftover.
I followed this recipe exactly except that I put it in a 9x13. It was delicious! Great for a group!
Excellent! Perfect for a winter night! Will definitely make again, though will use a 9x13 next time as it was nearly overflowing in the 11x7. Might add some pearl onions, too.
Oh. My. Goodness. Make it. You will not regret it!
Excellent! Creamy texture, bacon adds delicious smoky flavor. My garden has no fresh thyme right now so used 1 tsp. dried. Out of dry mustard- whisked TBS of spicy mustard into cream with other seasonings. Baked in a 9x13 pan- used extra puff pastry to cover. Rave reviews from hubby, 2 college guys, 2 high school girls and a 6th grader...so seems to be a hit with people of all ages! Will be making again...
Great with left over turkey. Be sure to thicken before baking.
