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.

How to Make Lazy girls Chicken Pot Pie with Dressing Optional


  1. Pre heat oven to 400°
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. While that is cooking mix together in a bowl the chicken, potatoes, all veggies, gravy, seasonings.
  5. 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.
  6. Cut pie crust to fit your pie pans, with a little overlapping.
  7. If you want to use dressing, divide it between the casserole dishes, and pack to compact a little.
  8. 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.
  9. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden and filling bubbly.
