HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN CHICKEN POT PIE CASSEROLE
Enjoy a hearty comfort food for dinner - Chicken Pot Pie will be enjoyed by all!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 2 ½-quart round baking dish with cooking spray and set aside. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the carrots, peas, onions, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are soft and the onion is fragrant, 4 to 5 minutes.
Add the chicken breasts, chicken broth, soup, milk and flour (if using). Mix well and cook over medium-low heat for an additional 5 minutes.
Pour the chicken mixture from the skillet into the prepared baking dish. Cover with the pie crust, letting the edges hang over the sides of the dish. Using a sharp knife, cut a few slits into the dough. Place baking dish on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until crust is lightly browned. Let cool for 10 minutes. Cut pizza-style and serve warm!
MIX UP YOUR PROTEINS:
There's no wrong answer on which kind of meat you add to your pot pie. If you have a preference, it'll taste great!
Rotisserie chicken will work for this if you want to cut down on the cooking time.
Turkey is a great alternative meat if you have it on hand.
Steak bites are delicious in this pie too.
Optional vegetables to use: mushrooms, green beans, potatoes
Lay the pie crust out on a pastry board or a cutting board and cut long strips of crust about an inch thick. Then a lattice crust can be made over your pot pie!
Crescent rolls laid on top of your pot pie will also work in place of a pie crust.
