My son & my husband both love Marie Callenders chicken pot pie & I've always hated it. After talking to some people who all said I've got to try the "homemade" kind, I did it using this recipe w/ a few other changes. I used store-bought rotisserie chicken & made my own pie crust using the recipe on the Crisco label. I baked my bottom crust for 6 minutes first before putting in the filling. I'm not much on "boiling" my vegies, so instead I sauteed everything (yes incl. the onions)olive oil, added fresh minced garlic, 1 small red potato (cubed) & about 1 cup of crimini mushrooms, 1/2 cup of chicken broth, then the chicken. I did double the sauce. I basically just made a roux-(w/ the butter, broth, milk & more seasonings) Once I've added my fillings I poured it over my filling mixture. I didn't use all of the sauce 'cause I don't like soggy, sloppy, pies. My husband says it's a hearty, excellent pie but kinda dry. Next time I'll use all of the sauce. Oh, i left the temp at 425 & took it out at exactly 30 mins. I'm sure my son will love it, too once he's ready for dinner. Thanks for changing my mind about pot pies!
