Easy Recipe for Chicken Pot Pie

Simple Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken pot pie is a favorite meal at our home, especially in cooler weather. This recipe is simple and I like it because it uses Crescent rolls for the crust, so it is not as heavy as a traditional pie crust. You can even purchase lighter calorie crescent rolls in your grocer's dairy case.

It uses a 13” X 9 pan, and we reheat it leftovers in the toaster oven. It only takes about a few minutes to assemble the recipe once you have cooked the chicken. This is a delicious meal with little effort on the part of the cook. The hot chicken, vegetables and sauce in the casserole are delicious. I like this particular recipes for my family because it is such an easy recipe and it usually feeds us for two meals.

Chicken is one of the healthier meats we can choose to feed our families, as it is lower in saturated fat than pork or beef. Children seem to usually chicken as well, particularly the drumsticks if you cooking the chicken in pieces.

To Conclude:

I like this recipe primarily because of the taste and it is a good one dish meal. We have found if you heat the leftovers in the toaster oven or your regular oven, the pie is fresh all over again. In the microwave the crust becomes soggy. You can also substitute turkey, so it is a good recipe for turkey leftovers after the holidays. It is an easy recipe and bakes up quickly.
