Welcome to Foodie Friday.Be sure to stop by Designs by Gollum hosted by the sweet Michael for a virtual feast and a lot of inspiration!


I would never eat Chicken Pot Pie until a friend gave me this recipe.... I have shared this recipe many times...

1 boneless chicken boiled and cubed
( I use 2 chicken breast boiled and cubed)
2 cans Veg-All drained
( I add 3 big handfuls of frozen Lima beans to my pie)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste and a couple of big pinches of Poultry seasoning to taste
1 or 2 frozen dip dish pie shells NOT cooked

1 cup Bisquick - 1/2 cup for one pie
1 cup milk - 1/2 cup for one pie
1 stick butter - 1/2 stick for one pie

This will make two pies...
I like this pie the first night that you cook it ... my family will reheat and eat left overs....
Most of the time I make the filling.... fill 1 pie shell ... you can save the other half in the frig or it will freeze real nice.... then I make the crust for 1 pie...

While chicken is boiling, I mix vegetables , chicken, soup and broth in a bowl, salt , pepper and Poultry seasoning to taste... I also like to add about three big handfuls of frozen lima beans to my pie...

Cut chicken into bite size pieces... add to filling

As you can see I put 1/2 filling in pie shell... and I saved 1/2 and cooked a new pie two nights later...

Mix 1/2 cup bisquick,1/2 cup milk and 1/2 stick butter pour over filling to make top crust for 1 pie...

Bake at 350 for 45 to 60 minutes.....OH SO GOOD...

  5. my mom made this for us growing up -- yummy is right!

  6. Oh, I am going to have to make this pie! I am sure to get a lot of kisses out of this one! Thanks for sharing!

  7. I wish I could make a decent pie crust. Our frozen ones around here are not very good.
    It really is comfort food.

  8. Beautiful looking pot pie! I'm going to give this a try. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Julie, My daughter loves chicken pot pie. I'm going to make this just for her!

  11. That looks so good, and so simple. My daughter loves chiken pot pie and I sometimes buy her the frozen ones but they are so expensive. I will try this soon!

  12. What a wonderful new take on an old favorite. It looks delicious. Have a great day.

  13. Hi Julie,
    I'm not kidding, I was just saying to my daughter the other night: "I need to get a good chicken pot pie recipe". Because we love em, but have never made one from scratch. It's as if you knew just what I was looking for!!Thanks so much for posting this, I will try it this weekend. The weather has really turned - it's grey and wet out - perfect pot pie weather!
    Thanks for being such a good blogging friend!

  14. Okay, it's me again. Two questions, just cause I want to do this I drain the veggies,if so, can I use fresh instead? And is the butter melted for the top crust with the bisquick? Can I use a regular pie crust (I like to make my own) for the top? Okay, I think that's all! Thanks Julie!

  15. The pie looks wonderful! And it's making me hungry!
    I've been looking for new, easy one-dish recipes, so thanks for posting this!
    All the best,

  16. This looks very yummy!


  17. Hi Heidi, Yes drain the veg all... I have never used fresh vegies, so I am not sure.Now for the butter, I pull it out and let it come to room temp.( real butter) mix it with the bisqiuck then add milk a little at a time. And on to the crust... I have NEVER liked chicken pot pie until a freind made this for my family for dinner one night after I came home from one of my hospital stays... I love this recipe!!! I almost always play with a recipe but only after the FIRST time I make it so that I have a starting point and know how it should taste.My add on to this recipe was the lima beans... Now with that said I know that I like this pie because you have the pie crust bottom.. and then the top has a more cake like crust to it and the two different taste (I think ) makes this pie so different. I hope that helps ...Just let me know if you need anything more.... I think you will love this pie.... I have shared this pie recipe many times... I have been making it for my family now for 12 years and they still request it often!!! Please let me know how it goes ...

  18. son will be in heaven and so will I, this looks soo easy! Thanks!
