Nell's Easy Chicken Pot Pie

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by TxBluebonnet

My hairdresser gave me this recipe years ago and I've made it so many times that I've come to think of it as my own. I've never served it to anyone who didn't like it. It's important that you use the combination of soups as listed or the gravy won't taste the same and the Monterey jack cheese adds such a creamy taste without being overwhelmingly cheesy. If you prefer a bottom crust, you may use a second can of the crescent rolls. I usually just use a top crust. The prep time is just an estimate since I usually cut up the ingredients early in the day and put in plastic baggies in the fridge.

Wonderful recipe! Yes, i made a few changes to satisfy my own pantry. Like many other readers, i used frozen veggies (16 oz), and cooked them in the microwave for 8 minutes first. Added a can of milk to the soup mixture to replace the can juices, and threw in some roasted red peppers from a jar i had in the fridge. Fast, easy, versatile and YUMMY!
