      Surprisingly good. I was drawn to the idea of freezing this, but we had to do a "test run" first. Hubby really liked the mashed potatoes on top, but said he did miss a crust, so he just stopped saying it was pot pie :-) then told me what great lunch leftovers this would make. Only real issues are that it was far longer than 15 minutes prep (I'd say at least 30 with the boiling and chopping, etc). Second, we would have liked the potatoes to "crust up" a bit more, but we'll fiddle with the broiling. Used 1 1/3 C stock to be sure it wasn't too runny, then used the remaining 1/3 instead of water to mix with the flour. Texture wasn't runny at all. I'll add more carrots in the future, as those were the best part in my opinion. Thanks for an interesting meal! Will certainly add to our freezer meal stash!

      This is a great keeper recipe. It will take some practice to get the liquid amounts right. I've made it twice, and am still a little wobbly with it. However, even in a soup bowl it still tastes wonderful!

      My husband loved the potato crust. The chicken needed to be seasoned more while it was cooking, but overall this was good.
