Homemade Chicken Pot Pie
If you haven't already noticed, I am definitely a girl who likes to have a recipe to follow. That is just the way I am...most of the time, I don't think I've learned enough to make something up as I go along. Well, today I changed all that and made a chicken pot pot from scratch--including the crust! It turned out really well, in fact, the only thing I would change would be to add half a soup can of water to the filling before baking. Having said that Superman said it was perfect the way it was...between you and me, I think he'd like it even more with that little tweak.
Just in case you haven't made a chicken pot pie already, I'll give you my "recipe". It really was terrific and super easy.
In addition to two pie crusts (because you want to top it), you will need:
2 chicken breasts - cooked and diced
1 bag frozen mixed vegetables
1 russet potato - cooked halfway and diced
1 regular-sized can of Cream of Chicken soup
Preheat your oven to 375...
Roll out your pie crust and lay into pie pan. Set aside
In a big bowl, mix together chicken, vegetables, potato, soup and 1/2 soup can of water. Put the filling into your pie pan (that already has one pie crust pressed into it). Top the pie with the other pie crust. Then bake for about 45 minutes...and serve!
That's it! Can you believe how easy that is? I cannot believe I made my own pot pie and it tasted good! Yay, me!
