- 1 cup sodium-free chicken stock
- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 cups of pulled cooked chicken
- 2 medium carrots
- 2 medium russet potatoes
- 1 cup frozen green beans
- 1⁄2 cup frozen peas
- Over high heat melt the filling butter, and add flour to make a roux.

- Drain veggies and add to the cream mixture. Remove from heat.
- Sift together dry crust ingredients.
- Cut in cold butter, add water and gently pat together. Do NOT over mix!

- Add filling and top with the other half of the rolled dough.
- Seal edges by squeezing together top and bottom dough.

- Bake at 400°F on center rack for 45 minutes, or until golden brown.
The Crust is amazing, and surprisingly easy. I substituted a rhubarb for the potatoes, a little taste change but good. The suggested servings are correct but only make as much as you can eat at one sitting. We had leftover and the next day the crust was disappointing.
I will definitely keep this one and use potatoes next time... It is truly delicious and something to serve proudly. Thank you for the recipe.
ps. I have never made a scratch crust before, it is great! (but a lot of butter, no wonder why it is so good!)
Excellent pot pie! We loved the crust almost as much as the filling! I left out the green beans and added more carrots and peas. I used low sodium soup to cut back on the salt. A new favorite that we will have again!
