To-Die-For Chicken Pot Pie

Rated as 4.71 out of 5 Stars

"This is a recipe passed down from my Mom. Every time I make it, someone asks for the recipe. One friend says her family fights over it! I hope you enjoy! You can also make a homemade chicken soup with this recipe. Just cut up veggies, shred chicken, and cook in chicken broth."

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Place a baking sheet on the a rack on which you'll bake the pie.
  2. Combine the carrots, celery, peas, green beans, corn, onion, red potatoes, and chicken broth in a large pot. Season the vegetable mixture with thyme, salt, and black pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Drain the vegetables and set aside.
  3. Place dry chicken gravy mix into another saucepan and gradually whisk in the water until smooth. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until thickened, about 1 minute. Set gravy aside and allow to continue to thicken as it cools.
  4. Press one of the pie crusts into the bottom of a 9-inch pie dish. Spoon a layer of gravy (about 1/3 cup) into the crust. Layer the cooked vegetables and shredded chicken into the crust until the filling is level with the top of the pie dish. Pour the rest of the gravy slowly over the filling until gravy is visible at the top. Scatter butter pieces over the filling; top with second crust. Seal the 2 crusts together and crimp with a fork.
  5. Whisk the egg and milk together in a bowl, and brush the egg wash over the top crust. Pierce the top crust several times to vent steam.
  6. Bake the pot pie in the preheated oven until the filling is bubbling and the crust is golden brown, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Check periodically to see if the edge of the crust is browning too quickly; if needed, cover the edge with a strip of aluminum foil to prevent over-browning.

The gravy could have been better and the cost of the ingredients for this dish could be reduced greatly by making some minor changes. Not the best I've had but far from the worst.

Very good for a traditional pot pie recipe ... simple to prepare (though you need to start a couple of hours prior to your meal). I made no modifications other than using half gravy mix, and ha...

Made this, was able to make 2 deep dish pies; one for us and one for a sick friend...very good, will make again. I roasted a whole chicken and removed the meat. Good eating!

Loved it. Reminded me of pot pies from childhood, only much, much better. I am keeping this one!

I'm a 60 year old kitchen novice. Made this on a cool afternoon. My wife and I loved it! Recipe made enough for two pot pies!
