Easy Chicken Recipe: CHICKEN POT PIE without the pie!

Updated on February 6, 2016

Chicken Pot Pie without the pie DECONSTRUCTED!

My husband Jack loves chicken pot pie. I do, too! From what I know, the pilgrims brought this dish to America. It used to have chicken gizzard and/or innards and whatever leftover veggies and other bird meat. Nowadays, the chicken pot pie we know is mostly cubed or shredded chicken breast and the pie crust is more often store-bought.

Much as my husband Jack loves the dish, he finds it messy to eat. We took our chances and just made the filling, without the gizzards and without the pie. Deconstructed! The result is – “yummylicious!” and clean to eat :)

Some ingredients
Some ingredients

INGREDIENTS:

2 Chicken breasts – without skin

5 pieces of Celery stalks

20 pieces of little Carrots

3 big Bell Peppers

1 big sweet Onion

1 big can of Chicken Stock

1 big can of Green Peas

2 small cans of Mushrooms

4 Dashes (each) of: Salt, Thyme & Garlic Salt

2.5 inches thick of Velveeta Cheese or any Sharp Cheddar Cheese

PROCEDURES:

1. Wash all fresh veggies thoroughly. Cut into cubes.

2. Rinse chicken breasts. Lightly, sprinkle lemon juice. Shake excess liquid.

3. Cut chicken into cubes.

TIP: I cover my cutting board with aluminum foil because I don't have a separate cutting board for chicken.

4. Combine chicken, carrots and celery in pot filled halfway with cold water

5. Add 4 dashes of salt

6. Cover and let boil for 20 minutes. Stir frequently.

7. After boiling - let stand for 5 minutes - then DRAIN.

8. Open cans of mushrooms and green peas - drain.

9. Open can of chicken stock.

10. Add all remaining ingredients into the pot and stir in low fire.

11. Place the sliced Velveeta cheese or cheddar cheese.

12. Cover pot until cheese melts. Gently stir when cheese melted.

13. Let stand for 5 minutes and it’s done!

This recipe yields 8 servings. I let it cool completely then put it in separate containers to freeze. Frozen, it can last for several months and still taste great when reheated. I also put Parmesan cheese on top when serving. It’s a healthy and yummy meal!

      I only buy chicken pot pie from the commissary, pop 'em in the microwave, and voila, instant dinner!!! Now, you've inspired, or rather pressured me, he he, into making one of my own. I'll print this out and get the ingredients fast! I take it as a challenge - thanks for sharing, my friend from Jersey!!!

      Thanks, Ms. Peg! I also love Velveeta cheese. Perhaps, you would share with us your beef stew recipe? Thanks again!

      You had me as soon as I saw that Velveeta and LeSueur peas were included. This Chicken Pot Pie sounds nutritious and healthy, and it will be a good change from the beef stew I usually make when it gets cold. I love dinners that stretch for several meals! Quite economical. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

      Thanks, Shane! The first couple months when I first arrived here in 2005, my husband bought me all the tv dinners I liked -- Banquet, Lean Cuisine, Marie Collanders, etc. I was so curious what is a tv dinner and how to use a microwave, I didn't know how to cook and bake at that time, hahaha! I guarantee you, Chicken Pot Pie without the pie is easy to make and also healthier.

      This does look delicious as even the Banquet chicken pot pies have satisfied me in the past, although I must add I still do like the crust involved. Nonetheless, an original recipe that I'll have to try sometime.
