Some call it pot pie and others call it a casserole. Either term is politically correct, I say. This is a wonderful dish that is definitely comfort food. My family loves this dish. This recipe came from a sweet friend, Mrs. Lewis, which is now deceased.

How To Make bea's chicken pot pie

  • 1
    Boil chicken and reserve 2 cups broth. Freeze the rest of broth for another use. Debone and skin chicken then place into bottom of a 9 X 13 casserole dish or baking pan. Preheat oven to 350.

    In a large saucepan slowly heat both cans of soup along with 2 cans of reserved chicken broth. Remove from heat and add in the vegetables. Pour over chicken. *NOTE: I have used one can of cream of mushroom soup with 3 cans of broth instead of the two cans of soup and broth. When I do this I use 1 1/4 each of flour and buttermilk in the topping.

    TOPPING: Whisk together the melted butter, flour and milk until smooth. Pour over chicken and vegetables and bake (uncovered) at 350 for approximately 40-50 minutes or until golden brown. NOTE: I have also added 1/2 to 3/4 cup of broth to this as well.

    * I love cranberry sauce with this dish.

    **NOTE: I have also used one large can of white meat chicken, which works just fine. When I use canned chicken I just add water in place of the chicken broth. It's good both ways.
