Tips to making a great Homemade Chicken Pot Pie
There are many different chicken pot pie recipes out there and thoughts on what tastes best.
I use frozen versus canned vegetables because they don’t cook down and get mushy when baked. Second, I use a can of condensed cream of chicken soup for the sauce. It’s quick and easy and adds great flavor. If you don’t have any on hand don’t let that stop you. You can make a roux with chicken broth and a couple of tablespoons of flour to thicken.
Should you make your own pie crust or use pre-made?
I’ve done both and it really tastes great either way. For this recipe, I made the crust. Look how flaky that crust came out! If you’d like to check out that recipe, you can link to it here –> Flaky Buttery Pie Crust recipe.
