Simple Chicken Pot Pie
Do you love chicken pot pie? I sure do. This is such a great tasting, simple to make, chicken pot pie that I just have to share it with you!
I even love the freezer section, bake for 55 minutes, mini chicken pot pies. For years, those are the only ones I made, but I really wanted to make this delicious meal from scratch.
It can be a complicated Chicken Pot Pie
One day, I did just that. I made a pie crust and made a difficult (lots of steps) chicken pot pie recipe. I chopped up all the vegetables nice and small and made a sauce for them. Mixed that all together and placed inside the crust. Then baked it for a long time.
Truth told, that chicken pot pie was good when it was fresh. But, as a leftover the next day, it was not very good. I find that to be unusual. My experience is that oftentimes a food tastes better the second time around. Not so with that recipe. I was so disappointed that I didn’t try to make a chicken pot pie again for a long, long time.
In fact, after that experience, I just stopped eating chicken pot pies for awhile.
Or, it can be a Simple Chicken Pot Pie
Then, I saw a simple recipe in a magazine for a Chicken Pot Pie. It was just an advertisement, maybe for soup. I really don’t remember. That advertisement recipe got my attention and I thought that I could revise that recipe and make a simple Chicken Pot Pie recipe that would work for me.
I did. It was a huge success.
Since then, I have made this Simple Chicken Pot Pie recipe many, many times. Sometimes just for the two of us. Other times when we have guests. Everyone raves about it. Not only is it tasty, but super simple to make.
I promise you that you can make it on short order. It doesn’t take long to mix up and only about 30 minutes to bake. Usually these are ingredients that we have on hand. It’s good to plan a few hours in advance just so the vegetables are thawed and so that you can cook the chicken in advance.
If you love chicken pot pie like we do, you are definitely going to want to give this Simple Chicken Pot Pie recipe a try.
Simple Chicken Pot Pie
1 – 1 ½ pounds boneless chicken breast, cooked and cut into bite-sized pieces
1 can of cream of chicken soup
8 oz. frozen mixed vegetables, thawed and drained
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
1 can crescent roll dough sheet (use the crescent rolls if you can’t find the sheets, just place them next to each other)
Spray a 7 x 11 baking pan with cooking spray.
Mix the first 5 ingredients together and place in the baking pan. Top with the crescent roll dough sheet. Bake for approximately 30 minutes at 375 degrees. Check at about 20 minutes to see if you need to cover the crust edges with aluminum foil to keep them from burning.
The ingredients will definitely heat up and blend their tastes together during the 30 minutes. Just make sure the “crust” is cooked through because it’s not as good if the crust is gooey. It won’t hurt the food at all if you decide to cook it a little longer just to be sure the crust is done.
This is a Meal in One Dish
Since this Chicken Pot Pie includes meat, vegetables and bread, I don’t usually make a side, but when I do, it’s just a simple side salad.
This is also a great dish to make and take to someone else (maybe just home from the hospital, or having a bad day, or just to surprise someone, etc.)!
This is such a simple meal. If you give this recipe a try, please share a comment below to let me know if you and your family enjoyed it.
