MiMi's Creamy Chicken Pot Pie

This creamy chicken pot pie is like digging into a slice of comfort. It is a perfect use for leftover chicken or turkey. If you've never had a homemade pot pie before, you need to make this ASAP!



    This creamy and comforting pot pie is a perfect meal. It is one of our absolute favorites. It is flavorful, filling and delicious.  Do yourself and your family a favor and make one as soon as possible!


    If the only pot pies you have ever had come in a little red box... just wait... your mind is going to be blown if you try this one.  We had those pot pies as kids sometimes too.  A few chunks of meat and veggies floating in a crust full of gravy.

  The best part was getting to carve our initials in the frozen crust of the pot pie that was ours before it went into the oven.  That way we could be sure we were getting the right one when it came out!




    This is something completely different.  It is plumb full of veggies, chicken and potatoes.  There is a creamy goodness that covers it all, making it warm and delicious and flavorful.



      It is comfort food at it's finest.  Eating mixed vegetables is a lot more palatable when they are covered in a sour cream and cream of chicken sauce with just enough garlic and herbs.  What a great way to use up leftover chicken or turkey.  It is like a warm hug on a cold day!

Creamy, comforting delicious chicken pot pie is a perfect dinner!


     In fact, this pot pie has quickly become one of my husband's favorite meals.  He has a friend who is sooooooo jealous every time I make one.  Of course it doesn't hurt that my husband has to rub it in!

     That friend has suggested I should retire and just start selling these pot pies! 

     This has also become one of my go to dinners to deliver to friends who have just had a baby or somebody who needs a meal.  It can be stored in the refrigerator and just popped in the oven when it's time.

  1. It's cooler out this week so I plan to make this again for family dinner Saturday. I'm planning to make a cheddar broccoli chicken pot pie too. If it's a keeper maybe you'll let me do another guest post. I plan to make another flavor of homemade ice cream too since it's technically still summer.

  7. What size pan did you use? It sounds like it would need a deep dish pie pan judging from the amount of yummy ingredients in the recipe.
