You can play with this recipe by changing the meat or soup to anything that goes together and sounds good to you. I freeze this for those last minute meals or for the times my husband has to cook.

  • In a large bowl, combine flour and onion salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add water and stir until it forms a ball. Divide dough in half and shape into balls. Roll one ball out to fit a 9 or 10 inch pie plate. Place bottom crust in pie plate and roll out top crust.

  • In a large cast iron frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon shortening. Add chicken and onion and cook until mixture is just browned. Stir in beans and season with onion salt, sugar, garlic powder, pepper, and oregano. Stir in condensed soup. Heat mixture, stirring constantly, until it just begins to simmer. Pour into pie crust and cover with top crust. Fold top crust under edge of bottom crust, seal and cut slits in top crust.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.

Ok I admit that I didn't make the homemade crust (did the frozen kind). I did make it following everything except I had a wierd idea to add a jar chicken gravy. It turned out wonderful and my hubby bragged so I'd say this is a winner. Read More

I love this recipe I use carrots potatoes & onions rather than green beans. And bake it 15 to 20 minutes longer to make sure the crust is nice & flaky. Read More

I've never made a pastry dough or a pot pie! I made this and we 100% love this! It was fantastic. Took others suggestions and added spices. To the spice mixture we added 1/4 t of Italian Seasonings & 1/4t of Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb Seasonings. Also while chicken cubes were frying I sprinkled chicken with salt. Omitted the Onion & replaced with 1/4t Onion Powder. Let it cook about 5 min. each side. Replaced the beans with 1 can drained corn. I made the dough a couple times because I thought it was rather dry & maybe I did something wrong. Anyhow it was hard to roll out it was brittle & wasn't working like a dough. I got it to work by using it as is & I am glad I did. Placed it in my 9" glass pie dish. Baked it with the ingr. inside covered with the Top Dough & made slits. It was done in 24 min. It was phenomenal! This whole pie is exactly what I was looking for today! A quick and easy lunch that was really made in minutes. The thing that was a little bit of time was the pie crust and I am glad I made it even my picky husband said it was wonderful and flaky and tasted awesome. Yes he said awesome! He also said this was the best Chicken Pot Pie he ever had! He finished it off in a couple days & asked me to make it every week! Great! I will make this often although not weekly! UPDATE: Made this again & again now I pre-chilled the shortening for 1hr first. Also roll out dough between 2 sheets of wax paper. Perfection! Read More

i mixed and matched from this recipe and chicken pot pie II. when i cooked the chicken i used 1 can of chicken broth rather than water and when i mixed the celery and onions i used 1 can of chicken gravy and some of the broth. i did have problems with the crust. the recipe that it calls for only made one (1) pie crust rather than two. otherwise it was a big hit.

i made this once before and it is excellent i however did modify it a little i took the advice of others and added some other spice garlic and funny but i took a packet of seasoning mix from creamy chicken ramen noodles and sprinkled that in my dough and on the chicken when cooking this was excellent finally i used chicken broth instead of water and it is a nice meal for a cold winter day! UPDATE im making this again right now going to use all the same subs so ill be back to fill you in but im sure its gonna be good thanks for a great recipeUPDATE I have made this a regular around my house everyone loves it i even got my friends and family hooked its the best my hubby took one to work for the guys and now they are begging me all the time for another! great job with this one although i do agree the dough is a little hard to work with its worth it it just doesnt taste the same without it. i add a can of carrots in with mine too love love love thank you!
