  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Place a baking sheet on the a rack on which you'll bake the pie.
  2. Combine the carrots, celery, peas, green beans, corn, onion, red potatoes, and chicken broth in a large pot. Season the vegetable mixture with thyme, salt, and black pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Drain the vegetables and set aside.
  3. Place dry chicken gravy mix into another saucepan and gradually whisk in the water until smooth. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until thickened, about 1 minute. Set gravy aside and allow to continue to thicken as it cools.
  4. Press one of the pie crusts into the bottom of a 9-inch pie dish. Spoon a layer of gravy (about 1/3 cup) into the crust. Layer the cooked vegetables and shredded chicken into the crust until the filling is level with the top of the pie dish. Pour the rest of the gravy slowly over the filling until gravy is visible at the top. Scatter butter pieces over the filling; top with second crust. Seal the 2 crusts together and crimp with a fork.
  5. Whisk the egg and milk together in a bowl, and brush the egg wash over the top crust. Pierce the top crust several times to vent steam.
  6. Bake the pot pie in the preheated oven until the filling is bubbling and the crust is golden brown, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Check periodically to see if the edge of the crust is browning too quickly; if needed, cover the edge with a strip of aluminum foil to prevent over-browning.

Fantastic recipe. Used 2 lb chicken breast, coated in thyme, rosemary, and basil then topped with butter pats and baked. Fork shredded the chicken, which distributed the spices throughout all the meat. Aside from that, followed the recipe as written. Would possibly add a little more gravy and add it in layers along with the filling, the filling was too dense for it to filter through so the bottom and top only had gravy. Finally, best in a deep dish pie pan. Everyone at home and at work raved about this recipe. You won't be disappointed.

The gravy could have been better and the cost of the ingredients for this dish could be reduced greatly by making some minor changes. Not the best I've had but far from the worst.

Made this chicken pot pie tonight and made individual pies. Everyone loved it. Talked about it the entire night. I've never made a pot pie before, I am definitely adding this to my top list. I totally recommend this meal!!!!!

Delicious! My husband actually made this one and he's not the best cook and it still turned out wonderful! He did cook the veggies for a lot longer than 15 minutes but that was the only change he made

This was a great recipe. Followed the recipe w/ one small change - instead of using water w/ the chicken gravy, I used some of the chicken broth the veggies cooked in. It didn't get as thick as I would've preferred it. Regardless very good recipe!

Very good for a traditional pot pie recipe ... simple to prepare (though you need to start a couple of hours prior to your meal). I made no modifications other than using half gravy mix, and half roux with chicken stock, and this turned out fine.

I made this and followed the recipe. It was excellent and my family loved it!!! The only thing was that it made so much I ended up putting the pie crust in a 9x13 glass dish and topping it with a couple of extra pie crust's that I had. Nothing went to family ate it all within a couple of days.

Made this, was able to make 2 deep dish pies; one for us and one for a sick friend...very good, will make again. I roasted a whole chicken and removed the meat. Good eating!
