Comfort Foods: Chicken Pot Pie

There is just something about a meat and potatoes kind of meal that just seems to sooth the soul. Add a little bit of gravy to the meal and you have a winning dish! Pot pies are just that sort of meal for me. They are great anytime, but seem to be the best during the fall and winter months.

Once the weather begins to cool off, I love to make chicken pot pie. It is an easy and satisfying dish that will win rave reviews with your family. Typically I make pot pie with a flaky pie crust, but this version creates a little lighter version as Phyllo dough is used instead of a heavier pie crust.

What is phyllo dough?

Phyllo (or sometimes called Filo) dough is an unleavened, paper thin sheets of raw dough. You will often find its use in Middle Eastern or Greek cuisine. Their use ranges from savory to sweet dishes. One of the most well known dishes that is made from Phyllo dough is baklava.

Phyllo dough can be found in the freezer section of most grocery stores. When cooking with this delicate dough, it is important to remember that because of its thinness, it dries out very quickly. Be sure to keep the dough that you are not working with at the moment covered so that it stays moist and fresh.

Ingredients for Phyllo Chicken Pot Pie

  • 2 cups of chopped, cooked chicken (I love using leftover chicken breasts or rotisserie chicken for this recipe. This is even great for that leftover Thanksgiving turkey.)
  • 3 cups of chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup of milk (You can omit this if you cannot have dairy products.)
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of chopped carrots
  • 1 cup of diced potatoes (Be sure to cut these into small cubes to that they cook quickly in the pot and finish off in the oven.)
  • 1/2 cup of thawed (previously frozen) corn
  • 1/2 cup of thawed (previously frozen) peas

*Any vegetables that you enjoy would work in this dish.

Instructions for Making Phyllo Chicken Pot Pie

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Put three cups of chicken broth and milk in a medium pot on medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon of poultry seasoning, salt, 1/4 cup of flour and whisk together. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring regularly. Allow broth to boil for about 1 minute and reduce heat.
  3. Add the chicken and vegetables to the thickened broth and simmer for about five minutes.
  4. Layer 10-12 sheets of dough in the bottom of a non-stick sprayed 9x9 inch baking dish. Brush melted butter in between each layer of the dough. I allowed the sheets to go up the sides of the dish so that it completely closed the pot pie.
  5. Pour the chicken and vegetable mixture on top of the bottom layer of the Phyllo dough.
  6. Layer the remaining 10 sheets of Phyllo dough on top in the same manner, butter each sheet as you layer them. I tucked the sides down and sealed it with some additional melted butter to keep it closed.
  7. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the Phyllo dough is golden and crisp.

      Thanks ktrapp. Hope that you get a chance to make this if you haven't already. It gave a different taste, but one that we really enjoyed.

      What a great idea to use the phyllo for the chicken pot pie crust. How good that would be this time of year too. I'm going to have to make this!

      We are very big fans of Greek food in my house so we are familiar with Spanakopita. I actually make it myself sometimes and sometimes without the spinach to make it just the cheese pie. Thanks for visiting mts.

      Hi cardelean

      What a great hub.

      I am a fan of any recipe that includes chicken. I've had chicken pies before but never with Phyllo dough, so this is a must try recipe for me.

      Thanks for sharing.

      It gave it a really nice crunch and it wasn't too hard to put together. So glad you pointed out that I didn't have the ratings capsule, I've added it!

      So glad to hear it teaches! It had such a nice crunchy crust to it. Definitely different than the traditional kind, but it was a nice change!

      I agree with you kitty. Those pre-made pot pies are so salty! Pot pies are so easy to make and even if your kids prefer the flaky pie crust, you can use the recipe for the filling and just substitute pie crust instead. Enjoy!

      My hubby has been craving chicken pot pie lately. I hate the frozen kind, so I am glad you listed this yummy looking recipe. I will have to print and save for later this month. Thanks for the share. Voted up.

      My kids love chicken pot pies but I don't know how to make one. So I buy chicken pot pies from Costco and they're too salty. I don't like my kids eating food that are too salty so I only allow them to eat about three time a year. Your recipe looks yummy and simple to make. I think I'll give it a try. Thank you for sharing! Voted up!
