This is the "best" homemade chicken pie recipe that I've come across. Put it on your recipe list because you'll be using it often!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • pie crust, enough for bottom and top of large pie pan (I use the frozen crust)
  • 2 cups cooked chicken
  • leftover vegetables (such as broccoli, mushrooms, carrots, spinach)
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chunk-chopped (If using fresh veggies, parboil or steam slightly before using)
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 14 teaspoon paprika
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 12 cups sour cream
  • 1 cup cream
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese or 2 cups monterey jack cheese


  1. Place bottom crust into large pie pan, with 2-3 inch overhang.
  2. Fill bottom of pan with chopped chicken.
  3. Layer with leftover veggies and tomatoes.
  4. In a bowl, mix seasonings with sour cream, cream, and pour over veggies.
  5. Top with cheddar or jack cheese.
  6. Cover with top crust, seal edges well, and make a couple of slits on top crust.
  7. Bake in 350 degree oven for 1 hour or until top is brown and pie is bubbling.

YUMMY!!! Best chicken pie recipe I've done! I used small diced potatoes, carrots, and peas. Added fresh minced garlic, served a side of steamed broccoli. A great meal! Thanks!

WOW!! This was very rich!! I cut the recipe in half, for two of us. I cut back the calories a bit by not putting a bottom crust on, top crust only. Used an oriental veggie mix, including sliced water chestnuts, which gave it a little crunch. Also used 2 fresh garlic cloves, smashed instead of powder. We enjoyed it but I think if I make it again I would use just milk, instead of cream and half the sour cream and cheese. Interesting but sooo rich!!

I'm overdue in writing in on this one but I wanted to say that this has become a staple in my house! It's my other half's most requested dish and I've made it for him over and over. I omit the tomatoes but vary the other veggies as you suggest. I often add potatos to make it extra hearty. I highly recommend the recipe to others. This is a keeper!
