      This was a really nice pot-pie and I love the fact that it's lower in fat than traditional recipes. I followed Roosie's lead on the baking powder and used 1/2 tsp. The crust was nice and flaky so I think that's a good amount to use. I followed the recipe pretty much as written but also added about 1 cup of chopped mushrooms in step #2. All in all a good recipe! Thanks TH!

      What a great little pot pie! I would love to give this recipe the full 5 stars, but I had one problem- the directions say to add baking powder, but the ingredients do not say anything about baking powder! I did add 1/2 tsp and got a lovely light and biscuitty crust. I made a couple subs- I used whole wheat pastry flour for the white flour called for and subbed a very thick white sauce for the canned soup/flour. I did leave out the parsley (none on hand) but I don't believe the final dish suffered much. I also did not peel the potato (I figure why throw away the most nutritious part?). I used leftovers from free-range organic chicken that we had brined and roasted and added extra green beans that needed to be used. I made in a round 2.5 Qt Corningware saucepan, and it made a lovely little pie. The sage is a lovely touch to the crust- I thought it might be strong, but it just added a nice hint of spice. The crust turned out very well for me- perfectly biscuitty and was very easy to work with. We had leftovers for lunch today and they reheated pretty well in the microwave. I have to admit, this is the first pot pie I’ve made that wasn’t from the frozen foods section of the grocery, and I am delighted with how it came out. I found the recipe to be quite quick and easy, with the cooked chicken on-hand. I will definitely make this again.

      This was the first time I had made a pot pie and it turned out sooo good! I put more quanity of veg. chicken broth and chicken into it. Put it in a 9x13. Everyone in the family was raving about how good it was. My husband had 4 helpings. I can't wait to make a beef one also. This is time consuming with the veg. cut ups but worth every bit of time. If you're looking for a good comfort meal, try this one. #1 :-)
