My grandmother's rolling over in her grave, because I made this, but she's gotta understand that her grandbaby's got a 9-to-5 and just doesn't have the energy to chop vegetables, make pie crusts, and butcher a chicken after work. I had a chicken pot pie craving (it's 90 degrees here, so why I'd like to turn the stove on and eat anything heavier than watermelon is beyond me). This really hit the spot, though. It turned out better than some scratch recipes I've made from this site. The flavor of the thyme is very prominent, when the pie comes out of the oven, but after sitting overnight, it's just right. I added both cans of soup, which made for just enough moisture in the pie. I probably could have added the whole bag of frozen vegetables, too, because this doesn't make for a heaping pie filling. I shredded the chicken, because I hate the texture of cubed, and boiled the chicken with a few bouillon cubes for added flavor. I didn't even bother to blanch the veggies (too tired and lazy). Adding some garlic powder or other flavorings wouldn't hurt, but as written, this is a solid recipe, when you're craving chicken pot pie, but you don't have the energy for all the bells and whistles.
