I got this recipe from my father-in-law. Best Chicken Pie I've ever had. Passive cook time reflects simmering chicken.

This recipe is from Farm Journal and is in their Best Ever Recipes book. I've made it several times and it's great because it's packed with chicken! I add peas and carrots to the filling.
