Impressive Chicken Pot Pie

Prep and Cook Time: 2 hours

Yields: 1 Pie

Pie Crust:

2 ½ cups flour

1 Tablespoon sugar

1 tsp salt

2 sticks butter

*OR 2- premade pie crust


1 can cream of chicken soup

1 can of sliced carrot (drained well)

1 can of green beans (drained well)

1 can of peas(drained well)

2 russet potatoes, peeled and chopped

1 small onion chopped finely

2-3 chicken breasts, chopped into bite sized pieces

¼ cup flour

2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoon pepper

1teaspoon garlic powder

½ tsp dried basil



In a medium sized bowl add all dry ingredients and mix well, with a pastry cutter, or your fingers, slowly cut in (cold) butter. Be careful not to overmix.

You want small pea sized chunks of butter to remain in your flour mix, this will give you flaky layers.

Add water to the mixture, once again, be careful not to overmix.

Stop mixing as soon as the dough begins to form a ball that may be rolled out.

Refrigerate for 30 minutes before you roll out your dough. This will allow the butter to harden again, giving you flaky layers.

After the dough has rested, separate into two balls, roll each ball out into an even circle (about 10 inches in diameter).

Add the first to a pie pan as your bottom crust, and leave the second as your top crust.


In a large saucepan, add all of your filling ingredients, cook on medium high until the mix becomes thick and the chicken begins to cook (it will finish cooking in the oven)

add filling mixture to the pie and cover with the top pie crust.

Crimp the edges of your pie, ensuring the filling doesn't run out of the pie.

Slice a vent to the top of the pie, allowing steam and moisture to escape while it cooks.

Bake at 350° for about an hour or until it is brown and crispy.
