Lazy girls Chicken Pot Pie with Dressing Optional

Jane Whittaker


I call this lazy because I used chicken gravy in the jar, purchased pie crust, canned potatoes, and frozen veggies. Even the garlic was from a jar, no chop.
I did chop some onion and some celery and that was the extent of effort.
The individual casserole dishes that I use are rather deep, they hold 2 1/2 cups. You can put in a layer of leftover dressing in the bottom of the pies if you like, that is yummy too.

Directions Step-By-Step

Pre heat oven to 400°
Dice the canned potatoes, onions and celery. If you use garlic from a jar, no messing with that. If you have to use fresh, peel and mince 1 clove of garlic.
Heat butter in a large saucier and saute the onion and celery until onion is translucent and celery softened, add the garlic and cook a minute more.
While that is cooking mix together in a bowl the chicken, potatoes, all veggies, gravy, seasonings.
Add veggies and chicken to sauteed onion mixture and bring everything to a nice hot bubbly temperature. If you think it is a little thick, thin with some chicken stock.
Cut pie crust to fit your pie pans, with a little overlapping.
If you want to use dressing, divide it between the casserole dishes, and pack to compact a little.
Divide chicken filling evenly between 4 to 6 pie pans, cover with crust, seal edges. Mske 3 slits in the top middle of crust to vent.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden and filling bubbly.
