This is a very tasty pot pie made with a rich white sauce that includes chicken broth and Italian spices. There are none of the peas that are often in pot pies, but lots of chicken and potatoes.

4 Stars "Loved It". Just made a couple changes...I used the broth from cooking the chicken in the recipe. I skipped the egg wash and used more garlic than called for. This was sooo good. Next day too ;) Very easy to make, and serious comfort food!

Reviewed for RSC # 9. I can’t get commerical pastry in large sheets as ours come in boxes of little squares, so I had to do the jig-saw puzzle style piece-together with what I had. This was quite tasty and certainly didn’t take long to put together. While I enjoyed it very much, it was missing that “certain-something� that would have made it a five star rating. Please see my rating system: a wonderful 4 stars for a tasty but not extra-ordinary Chicken Pie. Thanks!

This was very good, except it doesn't taste Italian. I would suggest adding 2 cloves of garlic and 1 tbls italian seasoning. Don't understand why we are using can chicken broth when we have fresh broth from cooking the chicken?
