Simple Chicken Pot Pie Recipe

Looking for something to make with leftover chicken? Why not create a warm and comforting chicken pot pie for your family to enjoy? Whether you have leftover grilled, roast, or baked chicken in your fridge, this dish is a great way to put yesterday's extras to terrific use today. The recipe is so tasty that you might just want to try out the dish even if you don't already have prepared chicken ready to go. It's well worth cooking chicken just to enjoy this delicious recipe for dinner.

Ingredients for Pot Pie Filling

  • 1 pound cooked chicken, cut into small pieces or shredded
  • 1 16-ounce package of frozen mixed vegetables or 2 15-ounce cans of mixed vegetables, drained
  • 1 can (10 ¾ ounces) cream of chicken soup
  • ¾ of a cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Ingredients for Dough/Crust

  • 1 cup of self rising flour
  • 4 ounces of cream cheese
  • ¼ cup of milk

Preparation Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oven is heating, spray an 8 X 8 square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and prepare the dough for the crust.

To prepare the dough, place the flour and cream cheese into a medium bowl. Mix with a form until the mixture forms coarse crumbs. Add the milk and stir just enough to ensure that all of the dough mixture is moistened thoroughly. Pat the dough flat on a cutting board that has been lightly sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or sprinkled with flour. Shape it into a flat surface approximately 8 X 8, because you will be placing it over the filing mixture to create a top crust for your chicken pot pie.

In a different medium sized bowl, stir the mixed vegetables, cream of chicken soup, and shredded cheese until well blended. Mix in the chicken, stirring to evenly distribute. Place the chicken and vegetable mixture into the 8 X 8 baking dish, spreading gently so that it is evenly distributed.

Place the prepared dough on top of the filling mixture, taking care to try to cover the entire surface. Once the dough is spread out, use the tines of a fork to poke several small holes in the dough, to allow steam to escape while the dish is cooking.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30 - 45 minutes.

Serve and enjoy! This dish is hearty enough to be a one dish meal. You may also want to serve a side salad when you prepare this dish for lunch or dinner.
