Chicken and veggies in a creamy sauce. I created this as an alternative to using canned cream soups. I had a tube of Pillsbury® crescent roll dough, so I used that as a crust. It was okay, but I will use a regular pie crust (store-bought or scratch) the next time. My husband loved the chicken/veggie filling; it's a keeper.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter in skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and celery in hot butter until soft and translucent, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Melt remaining butter in a pot over medium-high heat. Whisk flour into butter to form a thick paste. Slowly add chicken broth to flour-butter mixture, whisking constantly, until mixture is hot and slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir chicken, steamed mixed vegetables, and onion-celery mixture into broth mixture; season with seasoned salt, cayenne pepper, and black pepper. Remove from heat and let mixture cool slightly, about 5 minutes.

  • Fold sour cream and mozzarella cheese into chicken mixture; pour into a casserole dish.

  • Spread pastry dough over the top of the chicken mixture and pierce the dough several times with a fork.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crust is browned and chicken mixture is bubbling, about 30 minutes.

I've been on AllRecipes for years now and this is only the second time I've rated a recipe. OMG! This was fabulous! I've been married 45 years so I am no novice to the kitchen. I followed the recipe to the letter. The flavors blended beautifully. My "pinch" of cayenne pepper was 1/2 tsp. and my "seasoned salt" was Adobo. Hubby had 3 helpings humming all the way though dinner. I was worried that there wouldn't be enough gravy because I was serving it with mashed potatoes (I sautéed onions and garlic and mixed it in the potatoes yummmmm!) but I decided to stick to the recipe and there was plenty of gravy. Definite keeper!!! Thank you Robin! Read More

Delicious with my little twists to the original recipe! I used chicken thighs because that's what I had and leftover homemade creamed corn made with cream cheese, in addition to carrots, celery and onions. I figured that would only add to the creaminess. It did! I also added sage and thyme throughout the process and on top of the crescent roll crust. Delicious! My hubs and kids loved it! "Mom this is so good! " With every bite! Love it! Thanks for sharing! Read More

Amazing! My family wants it weekly...actually they wanted it the next day. We compromised on weekly. I did add a pie crust on the bottom as well as the one on top. Worked beautifully. Also used fresh veggies cause that's what I had. But did a pre-cooked to soften. And had some chunks of leftover roasted baby red potatoes that I threw in. I was worried they wouldn't maintain their structure but it did beautifully. Thank you for a great recipe! This was my first attempt at making a potpie. I was a little intimidated. But this was simple and delicious!! Read More

This was a wonderful recipe. I didn't change any ingredients. I did lessen the salt since I used packaged broth and because of aesthetics I used white pepper instead of black. It is by far the best chicken pot pie I have ever made in the 45 years I've been cooking. My husband who is not a big pot pie lover ate 2 helpings. No little twists or doubled gravy. Perfect the way it is. Note for beginner cooks: if you are making with skinless chicken pieces especially breasts cook your chicken in a stock made from chicken broth carrots onions celery & pepper corns. It will enhance the flavor of the chicken. I forgot to mention that I used a 3 qt 9" round casserole. I think a larger casserole would make it a shallower casserole but that wouldn't affect the taste at all.' Read More

It drives me crazy when people change the recipe and then complain about it...However I did change a couple o f things but I don't seem to have messed the recipe up cause we still loved it. First off I am ethically opposed to using frozen veg during the summer. I used fresh and actually blanched them so they were still crunchy. I omitted the sour cream cause it expired in 2017. And I used our pie crust cause that's what I had. It was delicious ( I covered the edges with tinfoil the last 10 minutes). Thanks Read More

I have made this several times. Every time I make this recipe. I get "Oh we are having Chicken Pot Pie" hugs and grins. I like because nothing is processed but it tastes really good and not too difficult to make. Read More
