This is without a doubt the best chicken pot pie I've ever made or eaten in my life!!! My boys said, "it was da bomb", (meaning excellent). I had to double the recipe to make a big 9 X 13 pie to feed my gang, so I had alot of work ahead. I did all the prep work (minced the onion, peeled and diced the potatoes and carrots, and diced 1.5 lbs. of chicken breasts then cooked them in 2 cups of broth and a bay leaf) the day before then refrigerated it all until the next day, when once I made the top crust, it was a snap to do the rest. I just had to cook the already peeled and diced potatoes/carrots, warm the chicken in the micro and make the sauce. Ohhhh so delicious!!

This was excellent.I added mushrooms,bell pepper and green onions and instead of half and half I used heavy whipping cream(that was all I had).It was creamy and delicious.Thanks for sharing I advise everyone to try this!!!

This chicken pot pie was THE MOST DELICIOUS I've ever tasted! Everyone LOVED it!!!! It sure is definately worth the extra time it takes. I added mushrooms as well. I cooked and browned the chicken with some olive oil, salt and pepper. I prepped the filling the night before and put it in the frig, then the next night I just (heated up the mixture) filled the pies, put them in the oven to cook.
