Nothing but some classic comfort food here – Chicken pot pie. This is a recipe that dominates anything you can buy frozen in the store. Unfortunately, this does require a lot of prep work to prepare. There are tons of vegetables that go into this, most of which need to be minced, chopped or sliced. If you want to save time try and get some help or maybe even buy a frozen vegetable mix from the grocery store. In the end, it’s so worth it though! Chicken pot pie to a great way to make good use of leftover chicken. If you want to use fresh chicken, to cook it just slowly poach it in water for a while. If you don’t have any chicken or would prefer something else, turkey can easily be used in its place. Substituting chicken for turkey could also make a great side dish for Thanksgiving! Serve with buttery biscuits. Enjoy.

I have made this pot pie with and without the mushrooms and it is amazing either way... personally the mushrooms just give it a little extra flavor and take the pot pie to a new level!! I love this recipe! I lost it and had to search tastespotting for almost an hour to find it again!

Meat and vegetables! These are my favorite candy. This looks incredibly good. I will send this recipe to my husband and I will tell him to prepare the food and surprise me because he comes home two hours before me. Thank you for this delicious proposal.

Jennifer - I would say it serves 6-8. I would say this will take about 1 hour and 1/2 - 2hours. There is alot of prep work envolved.

In a week I will be needing to cook for 10-12 people so I was wondering how many servings does it make? I am with Charlie on the mushroom thing, but I cant eat them nor can my sisters or mother. I was also wondering about how long does it take someone to cook it there first time putting it together? Any help or info would be great.
