wanted to let you know that this is THE BEST
chicken pot pie I have ever made. It's quick and
easy and taste just DELICIOUS. The sauce is
delectable and boiling the veggies in the chicken
broth gave them such a good taste. Thanks for
posting such a GREAT recipe!! It has been enjoyed
daughter and I made this recipe together with
just a small alteration. We didn't have celery
seed, so we used celery flakes (which are good),
didn't have an onion so used minced onion. Our
chicken breast was frozen so we put it on to boil
and took only 45 mins. This was a spur of the
moment idea my daughter craved. We found yours
and sounded delicious and was step by step
simple. Since we had made so much, we doubled up
on the recipe and have put one in the freezer for
another night!!! Also, the aroma throughout the
house had everyone anxious before it ever came
out of the oven. Thank you for SHARING...the
family THOROUGHLY SAVORED EVERY BITE!!!
IT!!! This was awesome! There were no leftovers,
next time I'll make sure to double the recipe. I
wanted it to be fast so I didn't use any pastry
on the bottom, just put the chicken/veggie mix in
a corning ware and covered it with Pillsbury
Crescent Roll mix--it was out of the oven in 12
minutes!!! This is definitely a new family
made your Chicken Pot Pie recipe for the second
time. I love it! It's simple, using ingredients I
usually have on hand yet it tastes as if I've
slaved for hours. Thanks for posting it.
mom isn't the best of cooks, so whenever I visit
my dad, he asks me to make this. Everyone loves
it and it's pretty easy to make for such a
hearty, homemade meal. I'm baking one right now
as I type these comments for my husband to be. I
use Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts to make it
chicken pot pie .big favorite in our house as
well as several other recipes. they are simple
recipe was fantastic! I have never made a chicken
pot pie before and found this recipe simple.
This is a
wonderful recipe! It's easy to make and delicious
to eat. I won't be buying Marie Callender's
frozen pot pies anymore. :) I followed the recipe
exactly except I only used a tsp. of chicken base
instead of 1 Tbl. Even though I use a good brand
of chicken base that doesn't have salt as the
first label ingredient, I didn't want to make it
too salty. This is a keeper. I'll have to try out
some other recipes on your site since this one
turned out so well. Thanks for your wonderful
the first time I've made chicken pot pie and it
came out so good! I made it for my aunt, who I
cook for weekly and she called to tell me that
I'd outdone myself - those were her exact words!
I added sliced mushrooms and some diced garlic to
the saute. This added a great flavor to the
recipe was delicious! I'm a pretty good cook and
have tried MANY recipes for chicken pot pie but
this one wins hands down! I did double the recipe
and added 3 cloves of minced garlic to the onion,
the gravy was perfect! My children loved it and
what a great meal for the fall! Thanks so much
for sharing! This one goes in the recipe vault
I made the
chicken pot pie last night and my husband and I
think it is fantastic. He even had some for
breakfast this morning. I have bookmarked your
web site and will check there whenever I'm
looking for a good recipe.
Wonderful recipe. I
double the recipe and freeze one for another meal.
Thank you so much for
sharing your Chicken Pot Pie recipe. My husband said it was the best
he has ever tasted! He said that I could make it for him any time!
Even my 11 year old son raved about it, peas and all! Thanks for a
great, traditional, comfort-food pot pie!
Made your Chicken Pot Pie
last night. It was fantastic!!! I had roasted a chicken a couple of
days earlier and we always have leftovers. I cut up the breast and
then pretty much followed the recipe. Only made a few changes and
additions. I used chicken broth instead of the water, added some
Summer Savory to the sauce and some diced potatoes in with the
carrots and celery when I par boiled them. Again, a big big hit.
nice, one modification, I
rubbed a bit of BBQ spice and pre-cooked a chicken breast on a
kettle grill with a few hickory chips...sweet.
