How to Make the BEST Chicken Pot Pie in the World

chicken_pot_pie1My friend, Sharon gave me the best recipe for chicken pot pie. What made it the best? It’s soooo easy that even my 5 year old can do it. To be fair, my 5 year old is a good cook but… okay, the average, dare I say it, 3 year old could do it.

So here it is. No measuring, even. Poach (that means boil in diluted chicken stock until cooked) 2 chicken breasts with a chopped up really small onion. Chop up the cooked chicken into bite-sized pieces. Throw it in a round casserole dish with frozen veggies of your choice, 1 small tub of sour cream, 1 can of cream of chicken soup. You can rescue the onion from the stock too and put it in there. Salt and pepper to taste.

Cover the whole thing with a Pillsbury ready made pie crust. Bake at 425 for 20 minutes. This served my family of 3 for three meals!

Cost = $10.21
sour cream 1.49
cream of chicken soup 1.09
chicken stock 2.50
chicken 3.14
organic frozen veggies 2.99

Mommy: Do you want some chicken pot pie?
Girl: I don’t like it. I’ve already had that.
Mommy: I’ve never made it.
Girl: But I had it at school. The filling was kinda… yuck.
Mommy: You’ve never had THIS one because I’ve never made it. They’re all different.
Girl: Fine. (Bites.) Not bad.


Girl: You can make that again.


Girl: I think that’s my new favorite thing.

(the next day)

Girl: You said you were going to make that chicken pot pie again!

p.s. Yes, that’s what the sour cream was for.

  1. Chicken pot pie rules! This one sounds scrumptious! Hmmm…now I’m hungry!

  2. That looks SO good! I have never made it before, but with the chicken that I have in the fridge, I think I’m going to make this soon! Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Don’t forget to boil or steam the veggies before you throw them in!

  4. Hahaha! You know what? I didn’t… and it was fine. Really forgiving.

  5. Good to know!

  6. Love this pie recipe, I eat a lot of vegetarian, and I’ve made a twist on this with tofu and beans. Such an easy way to cook. Thanks Ria!
