  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Combine mixed vegetables, potatoes, cream of chicken soup, and chicken chunks in a 9-inch pie dish. Add more soup if needed to coat the ingredients. Unroll crescent rolls and lay the sheet of dough onto the pie dish. Gaps are okay because they allow for ventilation. Press dough to pie plate to seal.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until crescent roll dough is golden brown and filling is bubbling, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool a few minutes before serving.

Anybody can make this chicken pot pie, and it's actually really good! The crescent rolls make a nice, flaky crust. I do think it needs two cans of soup, especially if you are using two cans of vegetables. I used a can of cream of mushroom and a can of cream of chicken because that's what I had on hand...

this was pretty good. The only thing I would do differently next time is either make my own crust (since that is my favorite part) or at least buy a frozen crust. I'm not crazy about the croissant topping. But like I said a yummy crust is my favorite part of a chicken pot pie.

This is more like chicken PAN pie to me, because when I make it, I use a baking dish since I don't have a pie dish. I used all of the same ingredients listed and it tastes excellent! So simple yet so good. The crescent rolls make it a special dish really, cause they're so light and add flavor. I only ever use one can of cream of chicken, but I'll add a little milk to the empty can, swish it around and pour that over the filling if it needs a tiny bit extra sauciness.

It's not what pot pie is in my mind.
