Chicken Pot Pie

Comfort food: food that provides consolation or a feeling of well-being, typically any with a high sugar or other carbohydrate content and associated with childhood or home cooking. (Google)

This week I am posting one of my comfort foods: Chicken Pot Pie. I used to love when my mom would make these when I was younger and I have since developed my own take on the recipe.

What you need:
  • 1/2-1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • seasoning salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1/3 cup cream cheese
  • 2/3 cup Oikos greek yogurt, French Onion Dip
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 rotisserie chicken 
  • 3/4 bag of mixed vegetables
  • 1 can of diced potatoes (or fresh if you'd like)
  • package of 2 deep dish pie crusts
(I used to make this with the Philadelphia garlic cooking cream but I could not find any of the cooking creams at Meijer today! :( )

Make it:
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • Shred chicken in to a large bowl.
  • Add mixed vegetables, potatoes, cream cheese, French onion dip, broth and seasonings. Mix well.
  • Lay tin foil on to a cookie sheet and place one of the pie crusts on there. Then place the mixture in to the pie crust. Being careful, separate the other crust from the pie tin and place on top of the first pie crust and mixture. Crust slits in crusts.
  • Bake in oven for 30 minutes, or until crusts is golden brown.
  • Enjoy!!!

  2. You really can't go wrong with Chicken Pot Pie. Sure a childhood favorite!

  3. This looks so good! I LOVE the Marie Calendars chicken pot pies, but they are so full of sodium I had to stop buying them (especially once my husband discovered his high blood pressure issues). This would be a great solution for us; we could have the chicken pot pie we love without all of the sodium. Can't wait to try this!
    Thanks so much for linking up with us at Delicious Dish Tuesday again this week!! Keep the awesome recipes coming! :)

  4. YUM this looks much easier than other recipes I've seen, I'll definitely have to try this out one night.

    Thanks for linking up :)

  5. I'm making a chicken pot pie for dinner tonight!! I usually go the lazy route and use biscuits but I've been wanting to try it with the pie crust - this looks so good and so easy!

  6. Delicious! You have no idea how much I love pot pies. I usually take the easy route and buy them from Boston Market. They're so good so it's my guilty pleasure & perfect comfort food!

  7. I've never made chicken pot pie before, but these simple enough, so I might have to try it! I love using those flavored cooking creams. I'll have to look for the garlic one for this recipe!

  8. My mom absolutely LOVES chicken pot pie, I'm sure she'd love this recipe! Thanks for sharing Ashley.
