This is a recipe I have been making for years, and it just keeps getting tastier and tastier. Moist and bursting with rich flavors. A great one dish meal for those cool evenings.

It may be the tastiest and best chicken pot pie ever; you be the judge.

How to Make HEARTY CHICKEN POT PIE (SALLYE)

Step-by-Step

  1. NOTE: To make this dish, I use a 9" square x 3" deep Corningware casserole dish. It is the perfect size to make one large pie.
  2. ALTERNATES:
    ** You can substitute rotisserie chicken with skin and bones removed and cut into bite size pieces
    ***NOTE: You can substitute store bought frozen deep dish pie shells but you will have to buy two packages (4 shells). This recipe is generous enough to make two pies if you are using prepackaged pie shells.
  3. Preheat oven to 350º to 375º...

    Clean and cut celery ribs into 1-2" lengths
    Peel and quarter onion
    Place celery and onion in food processor and pulse until diced.

    Cut potatoes into bite size cubes and place in microwave safe bowl. Add onions and celery to potatoes.

    Put 2 tablespoons water in bowl, cover with paper towel and microwave for 5 minutes

    Saute chicken for about 3 minutes on each side in 1/2 cup water or broth and 1/4 cup wine. Remove chicken from water to cutting board, and cut into bite size pieces. Set aside.

    NOTE: TO SPEED UP THE PROCESS, YOU CAN DICE PARTIALLY FROZEN CHICKEN BEFORE COOKING
  4. Place both soups, milk, poultry seasoning and broth (or water) in medium heavy saucepan and cook over medium heat just until a smooth texture

    Add potato, onion & celery mixture, salt, pepper, garlic powder and mixed vegetables to soup; stir together until well mixed.

    Remove from heat.
  5. Prepare pie dough according to directions (recipe link below) or use thawed store bought crusts.
    Place one crust into 9" x 9" baking dish and gently press crust on the bottom and up the sides of dish and set aside

    Set other crust aside for placing on top of pie
  6. Add chicken to the baking dish and spread out evenly.

    Pour soup and vegetable mixture into baking dish over chicken.

    Place remaining crust over top and gently stretch until mixture is completely covered. Pinch the top crust down onto the baking dish.

    Cut 4 slits in crust to allow steam to escape.

    Place in oven and bake for 35-45 minutes until bubbly and crust is golden brown.
  7. Remove from oven and let set for 5-10 minutes until mixture is thickened.
