My husband (my toughest critique) said it the best, "I didn't even know I like chicken pot pie or maybe I've never had one this good!"
Prior to making this dish I read through the reviews. I noted that some reviews indicated that the sauce was rather thin. Knowing this issue in advance, I chose to add in some parboiled cubed potatoes -figuring the starch in the potato would help thicken up the sauce. I noticed that aside from the mention of salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning that there were no other seasonings that came into play, mainly b/c the recipe focuses too much on the sauce for providing the base of the flavour. I don't care for poultry seasoning and left it out. I elected to add in parsley, garlic powder, savory, and thyme. It's not bad for a busy working parent to make, but if you have the time you'll want to stick w/ a traditional recipe.
I'll give this recipe 4 stars because it makes for an easy weeknight meal as it uses a pre made pie crust, deli roasted chicken and Progresso Recipe Starters Sauce. I didn't make any changes except I did bake on the bottom rack as this helps with cooking the bottom crust when using a glass pie pan.
I'd actually give it 4.5 stars because its almost there just needs a bit of extra love :) But we really enjoyed this. Even my Chicken Pot Pie hating husband went back for seconds and reheated it for lunch. Which says to me he only thinks he hates it. Now I did make some changes to the recipe. I'm not a fan of frozen mixed veggies (lima beans eww) so I diced some carrots, onion, celery, fresh green beans, and a steamed diced potato. Added some frozen peas. Sauteed all these in a bit of butter until they began to soften. Then I made the sauce and added it to the veggies/chicken mix. I did add some extra poultry seasoning, parsley, onion powder, sage and a little thyme. Even with the cutting up of the veggies this went together quickly, love the rotisserie chicken. I didn't add any extra flour just let the sauce simmer with the veggies for a while until it started to thicken then filled the pie crusts. I did use deep dish pie crust. I thought the sauce was a nice kick start to a pretty good Chicken Pot Pie.
Absolutely delicious recipe. I love the fact that I can use the rotisserie chicken leftovers. I made this gluten-free, so I didn't use a prepared regular crust. I ended up using a gluten-free bread stuffing "crust" instead. I also thickened the sauce with Pamela's Gluten-Free Baking and Pancake Mix instead of flour. It was a big hit with my family. I could make this recipe at least once a week.
My family loved this, except I did not follow the directions to make it so easy. I'm sharing this because I think the pie is so much better this way. 1. Make your own pie crust. 2. I used my own vegetable mix of broccoli, corn, carrots (1 cup each) - use vegetables you enjoy. 3. Add salt to taste because it's needed. I don't think my family would've enjoyed this at all with the premade crust and the frozen vegetables. The rotisserie chicken was used in my version, and it was fabulous.
Made this according to directions except I added a chopped, peeled baked potato. Family really liked it and it was very easy to put together. The flavor of the sauce was just to our liking.
I made a 10 inch pot pie, so I doubled the veggies and chicken. Fresh carrots, green beans, corn, onion, and few leftover mixed veggies were used. I made homemade crust with white whole wheat flour. Also skipped the poultry seasoning since I thought the flavor was good without it. The creamy garlic sauce gave a great flavor to this chicken pot pie. My family all loved it. I will make this again.
