5 stars - 8 reviews
ready in: 1-2 hrs
2 cups water
14 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 carrots, peeled and cubed
2 ribs celery, sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup butter
4 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup frozen peas
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup shortening
5 tablespoons cold water, more as needed
To make the filling: In 4-quart saucepan combine water, chicken, carrots, celery and onion. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add chicken bouillon, pepper and butter. Dissolve cornstarch and flour into whipping cream and stir into chicken mixture. Simmer 3 minutes stirring frequently until thickened. Add peas and set aside.
To make the crust: Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
Combine flour and salt. Using pastry blender, cut in shortening until particles the size of small peas form. Sprinkle one tablespoon of water at a time over flour mixture and toss with fork to blend. Add enough water to hold the dough together. Form into 2 balls. Roll out bottom crust on floured surface to 1 inch larger than inverted 9-inch deep-dish pie plate. Lift dough off floured surface by rolling onto rolling pin and unroll over pie plate. Ease the dough into the plate loosely and press in place. Trim bottom crust even with edge of plate.
To assemble: Pour filling into bottom crust. Roll out top crust, cut slits for steam to escape. Cover filling with top crust and fold top crust under bottom crust. Seal crust and flute edge. Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and filling is bubbling. Let stand 15 to 20 minutes before serving.

Seriously!!! Try it! Its much better than Marie's. My husband says I'm a pot pie queen, i love them! But I've never made one that taste this good. I don't care for the rosemary in most, this doesn't have that. Only thing i would do different is i didn't care much for the crust....i truthfully would have just as soon used a pre-made crust. Next time i will do to the fact it takes a while, makes a mess etc... The filling though is great. I don't care for the chicken in Marie's it taste "gamey" to me. I like using my own!!!! So i know whats in it. This is a great pot pie, if you like this sort of thing give it a try, and use ... read more
I may never buy frozen pot pies again. I used my own crust recipe, but this filling is awesome. Its better than Marie Callenders because i know exactly whats in this one, from quality of the meat and veggies, to the fact that there is no chemical stabilizers in it. It was perfect.
I have to admit I was nervous, this was the first pot pie I have ever made. I love it, my picky kids even loved it. The title should say better then Marie callender's.LOL. I did a few things different. I didn't use onions; and I put in mixed vegis. WONDERFUL WONDERFUL!!!
Everyone says this is the best pot pie ever! It is the only recipe I use for pot pie and will probably always be. Even my daughters love it. If I am running short on time, I substitute the homemade pie crust for the ready made Pillsbury pie crust and it is just as good. You will not be disappointed with this recipe :)
I made this recipe over the weekend...it was in my husband's words 'the best pot pie I've ever eaten!' Delicious filling and flaky crust. The only things I did different was that I added some diced pototoes to the filling and did not use celery. All four of my VERY picky kids loved it. I bought some custard dishes to make them mini-personal pot pies. They were a hit. Can't say enough good things about this recipe! Was exactly what I wanted.
This was fantastic!! Best filling and even better crust! I'd just add more carrots and maybe some more peas.
I have made this recipe twice now and it is delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and the flavor is perfect. I think it tastes as good or better than the chicken pot pie from Marie Callendar's. It's a little bit of work, but definitely worth it. I have also frozen them. Even reheated in the oven, they are delicious and better than anything you can buy in the frozens.
I tried this recipe last night and it was a hit! The odd thing is, the filling was PERFECT before I scooped it into the crust, but after the pie came out of the oven, it didn't taste quite the same. Perhaps I'll add a tad more chicken bouillon next time.
