For those who do not want to bother making a cream sauce from scratch then this is for you and it's pretty darn good too, fresh mushrooms may be used in place of canned, although the golden mushroom soup is better this will also work using cream of mushroom soup, if you are not a garlic-lover then omit --- see my Kittencal's No-Fail Buttery Flaky Pie Pastry/Crust

Yay - super yummy and very easy. This is a great one to try if you are new to homemade pot pie, or if you are short on time (who isn't?). My DS, the king of pot pie, LOVES this one and made sure I had saved the recipe. Changes: left out mushrooms, my children fear them (but used the soup and lied about it - only fessed up after they said they loved it), and only used a top crust. Also added about 2 medium potatoes. That's it. Sauce was very yummy and it baked up in about 40 minutes on convection at 350. Didn't see bake temp so I just guessed. Can't believe no one has rated this gem. THANKS, Kittencal, for another winner. This one is going in the regular rotation file. :]
