Absolutely perfect! FIVE STARS! I used Mrs. Smith's deep dish pie shells, and there wasn't too much crust like I was afraid it might be, because there was LOADS of filling. The pies were perfectly cooked, very substantial and impressively hearty sized! (I doubled the recipe). I actually used chicken I had already boiled, the broth was what I had from the boiling earlier, I had peas and carrots already cooked to add, so I decided to saute the onions and celery together, and it worked perfectly. After the sauce was made, I put all the other ingredients in the sauce, mixed it up well, and then ladled it into the pie crusts. Like I said, big fat fun pies! I was afraid they would run over the sides when they cooked, but amazingly, they did not. The crust was beautiful looking, and since it didn't crimp together well, it looked rustic, which was perfect. I wouldn't change a thing. The double recipe fed four big guys plus three women and two half-size kids generously! This is just perfect food! We will eat it often, share it with friends and shut-ins who need a meal, and pass this recipe around for everyone in the family to keep. It's the new standard...so far above any other Chicken Pot Pie I just don't know how it could get any better!
