4 servings (serving size: 1 1/4 cups chicken mixture and 3 piecrust strips)

You really can get this chicken potpie on the table in 20 minutes. Strips of pastry are a quick stand-in for the traditional crust on top.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken to pan; sprinkle with salt. Sauté 5 minutes or until browned and done.

Step 3

While chicken cooks, bring 2 1/2 cups broth and bay leaf to a boil in a large saucepan. Add potatoes; cover and cook over medium-high heat 8 minutes. Stir in peas and carrots; cover and cook 2 minutes. Stir in chicken. Combine remaining 1/2 cup broth and flour; stir into potato mixture. Reduce heat to medium; cook 2 minutes or until bubbly and thick. Remove bay leaf. Stir in thyme, pepper, and sage.

Step 4

While potato mixture cooks, cut piecrust dough crosswise into 12 strips. Arrange on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 7 minutes or until browned and puffy. Top chicken mixture with piecrust strips.

The only thing i did different than the recipe is use fresh potato, onion, carrot and celery (didn't have peas). It was very bland. I don't know if we'll even eat the leftovers.

Surprisingly good. Next time I'll add some minced garlic and a little chopped celery. It made for a good, hearty meal on a work night. Everyone liked it.

Awesome recipe! I used a rotisserie chicken. It was fast, easy, healthy, and delicious. I was skeptical that my fiancé wouldn’t like it since it’s not a “real” chicken pot pie, but he really enjoyed it! I will definitely make it again. I also used 1 tsp Poultry Seasonings in place of the thyme and sage. Delicious!

This is a quick and easy recipe that turns out great. Perfect for a cold night. The next time I'm going to substitute white wine for some of the chicken broth.

This turned out great! I used garlic and added more tyme for flavor (I have to put garlic in almost everything!) I also couldn't find potato with the onion so I quickly fried some up and added them in.

This is my go-to recipe when I'm craving pot pie. Love that the pie crust gives me a bite of crunch when i want it but without the calories of it being covered in it. I do however have to change the recipe a bit since I can't find frozen potatoes with onions where I live, so instead I buy 2 potatoes, cut them up and boil them for a bit while the chicken cooks, also use about half an onion. And I always add more veggies than it calls for. Can't wait for my leftovers tomorrow!

Quick, easy and delicious! Tastes like it took a lot more effort than it did, plus it was rich and hearty. Made exactly as written except I added some mushrooms because I had them on hand. My guys loved it! Served with a green salad on the side.
