In my continued effort to try new recipes this year I decided to give Chicken Pot Pies another try. I have never tried making my own Chicken Pot Pies, I have only tried them at restaurants and from the grocery store. I was never able to find a pie that didn't taste processed, and usually the sauce had a "gummy" texture.
Even though I use condensed Cream of Chicken soup, this pie has a delicious, natural flavour and consistency. It even tastes amazing when you cook it from frozen! And because I use store bought pie shells, canned soup, grocery store rotisserie chicken and frozen vegetables, the preparation is quick and easy.
So give this recipe a try and let me know what you think : )
Make sure to mix the can of soup with water until smooth before pouring it into the chicken mixture.
