Easy Chicken Pot Pie

Though I saw 50/50 in theaters last year, I forgot how amazing it is.  If you are looking to watch something…I recommend it!

Ok, before Lent starts on Wednesday, it is my goal to get rid of every non-vegan thing in my house. 

I was thinking about what to make Travis and I for dinner tonight, and decided I was not going to make something unless it helped me in clearing out the cabinets.

Here’s what I had on hand: frozen veggies, tuna, chicken, noodles, cream of potato soup, granola bars, rice, oats, crescent rolls, and baby hot dogs (left over from the super bowl).

I searched the web for some ideas and came across this recipe:

Easy Chicken Pot Pie

  • 2 cups cooked chicken, cut into bite sized chunks
  • 2 (10 ½ ounce) cans cream of potato soup
  • 1 (16 ounce) bag frozen mixed vegetables or 2 (15 ounce) cans Veg-All
  • 2 pie crusts (top and bottom) – I used my crescent rolls
  • salt and pepper
Directions:
  1. Mix soup, chicken, vegetables and seasoning.

  2. Put bottom pie crust in 9 inch baking dish.

  3. Add the mixture.

  4. Top with top pie crust and pinch.

  5. Bake at 375° for 45-60 minutes until heated through.

  6. (You will probably have leftover mixture — I usually make an extra crust and make a mini-pot pie in a large ramekin.).

It was seriously the simplest thing ever! Andddd it was super delicious! My favorite type of meal!

Even with only making half of the recipe, we still had leftover filling and made a little baby pie:

And the best part of the meal was a surprise: dessert!

Came home from the swim meet to this:

Best thing ever after another 9 hour swim meet day! Smile Speaking of the meet, here’s this meet’s team after all of their swims!

Hope all of you are having a good weekend!

    Oh my goodness I saw the title of this post and got so excited. Chicken pot pie may be one of my favorite foods… so comforting.

    I spent a lot of time this weekend watching my friends swim at their conference meet. I totally respect your 9 hour days. It can be exhausting just standing there for hours. My feet were killing me!

  2. I used to nearly live on chicken pot pie when I was younger… it was one of my most favorite things ever! Thanks for the recipe Nikki 🙂

  3. Mmm chicken pot pie! I love vegetable pot pie – which is close enough! I totally forgot that lent starts so soon. I’m giving up either chocolate or peanut butter. Not sure which yet.

  4. Chicken pot pie is so good!
