I created this recipe for yesterdays dinner from left over Veggie Chicken & Dumplings, where there were very few dumplings & chicken left in the pot after dinner, but plenty of the liquid.

So to RECREATE THE RECIPE I ADDED EXTRA CHUNKY PIECES OF WHITE MEAT CHICKEN BREAST, & Peas & carrots along with other seasoning, & it turned out better than my original creation.

Dinner was ready in about an hour, as tasty as ever. A perfect way to use & recreate left overs.

The recipe for my Veggie Chicken & Dumplings is posted here at Just a Pinch. I am so proud of how this new creation turned out

How to Make Remix-CHICKEN & DUMPLINGS DEEP DISH POT PIE

Step-by-Step

  • 1I used a deep dish Pie Tin, or use a 9X12X2 inch casserole dish. This is the size pie tin I used. Leave pie crust out of box on counter for about 15 minutes to reach room temperature so it unrolls easily.
  • 2Line bottom of pan with one of The full unrolled pie crust. It covers the entire bottom of the pie tin.PREHEAT OVEN TO 400 DEGREES F.
  • 3Drain canned Chicken breast and add to pie dish.
  • 4Add the frozen peas & carrots to a medium size bowl and heat in microwave for 5 minutes to remove ice crystals, drain any excess liquid.
  • 5Sprinkle most of peas over top of chicken, and save the remainder to the left over dumplings.
  • 6Sprinkle lemon pepper and thyme over vegetables and chicken in pan.
  • 7Add the left over chicken & dumplings to a large bowl then add the minced onions, and stir to mix with the remaining peas & carrots. The link for my VEGETABLE CHICKEN & DUMPLINGS recipe posted here is Vegetable Chicken & Dumplings
  • 8Ladle mixture into pie dish.
  • 9Unroll remaining pie crust and cut into medium size strips.
  • 10Use a fluted pastry wheel, pizza wheel or knife, to make desired size strips
  • 11Arrange strips over pot pie in desired pattern, overlapping and interlocking as you go if desired.
  • 12Crack a large egg into a small bowl, add 1 tablespoon of water and beat with fork till blended.
  • 13Brush top of crust generously with egg wash using a pastry brush.
  • 14Combine about 1 1/2 teaspoon coarse black pepper & 1 teaspoon kosher salt together in a small bowl and sprinkle over the top of crust for added crunch and flavor.
  • 15Place in preheated 400 degrees F oven, & bake for 45 minutes to an hour, or until crust is golden brown and mixture is hot & bubbly. BE SURE TO USE A SHALLOW PAN TO CATCH ANY POTENTIAL DRIPS FROM THE PIE AS IT COOKS. EITHER PLACE PIE IN THE PAN BEFORE COOKING OR BENEATH THE PIE AS IT COOKS.
  • 16Sprinkle top with chopped chive if desired and serve while still hot.
  • 17I made one to give away, using Pillsbury Crescent Rolls because I was out of Pie Crust, and it turned out FANTASTIC. THIS IS THE ONE I GAVE AWAY, to my house keeper, had planned to save it in the freezer for an easy dinner idea the next time. They LOVED IT.
