This is Betty Crocker's chicken pot pie version with a couple minor adjustments. It's a great recipe! We gobble up this pie and frown a bit upon realizing the last slice is gone. Homemade crust sends this over the top...but use pre-made crusts if you'd like. Enjoy!

This is a delicious pie! I did add 3/4 cup of the vegetables instead of the 1/2 cup. I also used potatoes with the skins on. My whole family loved the pie! Thanks so much vivmom!
