I know a million recipes out there for Chicken Pot Pie, but what I love about this recipe is it is homemade and still easy to make. You don’t have to spend a long time in the kitchen with this one. This is one of those recipes that doesn’t come from all canned or packaged ingredients, can still be easily made on a weeknight and also good enough for company on Sunday.
You can take this basic recipe and easily make it your own. I omitted the peas since my family doesn’t care for them in pot pie. I added potatoes instead, along with the carrots. I did not have any milk on hand so I cheated a little by using a can of cream of chicken soup instead of the chicken broth, milk and flour. I think it gave just the right amount of thickness and turned out creamier. I omitted the salt as I thought the cream of chicken soup was salty enough. Again, an easy recipe that you can play with and make it fit what your family likes. I am bringing this to Fiesta Friday over at The Novice Gardener. We enjoyed this one and I hope you will too 🙂
