I have tried chickennpot pies before but none to my liking. Like Thomas Edison, I kept trying until this favorite dish is perfected. This scrumptious dish was worth waiting for all these years. It is filled with good nutrious vegetables, and organic chicken to make it even healthier. There are a couple of short cuts that make this pie quick and easy for a faster meal preparation without forgoing flavor. This recipe is highly recommended, delicious and tasty. Definitely worth trying if you like pot pies. I suppose you can substitute chicken with turkey, especially now with leftovers from Thanksgiving. Attesting, this is by far my favorite ever chicken pot pie.

  1. Chop all your vegetables in separate bowls, set aside.

  3. Bake pie plate on 400 degree F. for approximately 20- minutes or until golden brown.

  6. Add remaining ingredients, saute and blend. Cooked another 4-5 minutes.

  9. Add your Cream of mushroom soup. Blend.
  10. Pour your meat mixture into your pie plate.
  11. Add remaining butter cut evenly in three piece.
  12. Top with second pie crust, curling pie crust over the edge slightly and pressing into cooked pie crust.
