Craving a comforting chicken potpie? I put one of these together for supper last night. It is SO easy and made with refrigerated pie crust and frozen vegetables for convenience. I roasted a chicken breast, but you could easily use a rotisserie chicken from the store or left-over chicken from another meal.

How to Make Rustic Chicken Vegetable Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. An hour or so before ready to make your potpie, put the frozen vegetables in a small collander to defrost. You can also use a combination of frozen corn, peas, lima beans, green beans, carrots or whatever you like, in place of bagged mixed vegetables.
  2. If roasting your own chicken, allow time to cook it and for it to cool enough to handle. I cooked mine in a counter-top oven for about an hour at 325 degrees until skin was crispy and juices ran clear. Remove the skin, take meat from the bone and chop in bite-size pieces. If using left-over chicken or rotisserie from the store, I would guess about 2 cups rough chopped will be enough.
  3. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Put the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. When the butter is melted, add the flour and stir constantly for a couple minutes to make a roux. Gradually whisk in the milk and stir until thickened.

    NOTE: My measurements for this are approximate; the roux and milk should make a thick white sauce so that it will not run when the finished potpie is cut.
  4. Add the defrosted vegetables, chopped chicken and poultry seasoning. Stir to combine, taste and add salt and pepper to your liking.
  5. Using a non-stick baking sheet, unroll the dough directly on it. Spoon the filling mixture on the dough and spread to about 2" from the edge. Now spread the prepared mashed potatoes on top of the filling.
  6. Lift up the edge of the pie crust and roll over the edge of the filling, crimping it as you go around so that it lays flat. Beat the egg and brush the crust edge liberally with it for a beautiful, golden and shiny appearance.
  7. Put in the preheated oven and bake until golden, about 30 minutes. Put the grated cheese over the exposed potatoes for the last 5-10 minutes for melting. Cool for a few minutes before cutting to serve.
