Chicken Pot Pie on the Fly

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Susann Simpson

This is a favorite of my family, and I NEVER have leftovers. After endless searching for a quick, easy and flavorful Pot Pie recipe, I gave up and created my own. Cooking time is greatly reduced as the chicken and filling are hot before being placed in the oven. This can be used as a base recipe and is open to endless modifications. We prefer chicken breast but dark meat, turkey, and pork also taste wonderful. Also, using less meat will not detract from the flavor. For thicker sauce, use a cup or a jar of gravy instead of broth. Seasoning measurements are approximate. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!
