When I had my first child 16 years ago (update: 25 years ago), a friend of mine brought me this meal after I came home from the hospital, and I enjoyed it so much, I’ve been making it ever since.

This is so yummy and yet easy to put together.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 2  pie crusts
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1 16 oz can mixed vegetables (like Veg-all well-drained)
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup (don’t add water)
  • 2 or 3 cooked, chopped chicken breasts (works fine with drained canned chicken as well, 12.5 oz.)

INSTRUCTIONS:
Lay first crust in pie dish.

In a bowl lightly combine the sour cream, drained vegetables, soup, and chicken.

Pour filling in pie crust, and top it with the other crust.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. If your top crust isn’t browned enough, you can broil for a minute, but watch closely.

Also, sometimes I bake it on the bottom oven rack for half of the time to get the bottom browned as well but again watch it closely.

 It’s good to let a pot pie sit for about 15-20 minutes after you bake it so that the insides “firm” up a bit, and so it’s not runny or loose when you cut into it.

  1. Saving this recipe, it looks so easy. I’ve been wanting to make chicken or turkey pot pie but figured it took hours and a hundred ingredients. 😉

    Found your post from the homemaking link up @ Raising Homemakers!

  2. We’re not Pot Pie people here in my house, so it probably wouldn’t go over real well. But my mom would LOVE this! Perhaps I’ll make her one 🙂

  3. This was the perfect post for me yesterday! I made it last night and everyone in my family LOVED it. Made a couple of tweaks (like only using corn, carrots, and green beans, and adding some onion and fresh mushrooms)and it is definitely going into our meal plan rotation. Thanks so much!

  4. Hi Margo,
    What a beautiful top for your awesome Chicken Pot Pie! Hope you are having a wonderful Spring day and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  5. That sounds so good. I make one similar all the time..but I use cream of potato soup instead of chicken soup and sour cream. It is a family favorite. I am going to try it your way!

  6. Beautiful – I love the lattice crust. Sometimes when I’m in a hurry, I scoop my pot pie into ramekins and top them with crust “cookies” that I bake on a sheet pan. Knocks a good 45-60 minutes off the process.

  7. Saw you on DIY Project Parade- thanks for sharing your recipe. I’m saving this one for rainy night comfort food!

  8. Looks like a great recipe. I will be featuring it tonight at my Swing into Spring party that opens at 8pm EST. Please stop by and pick up an I’ve Been Featured button. Thanks.

  9. Looks great! I made one tonight that is a slightly different version. Don’t you love how easy and great these are! Mine however are not nearly as pretty as yours! 🙂

  10. We tried this chicken pot pie recipe tonight and we all loved it. even our 2 year old boy ate it, which he is a picky eater. Definitely a great thing to make and it is easy to make.

  11. I mix the soup, sour cream chicken and a little cheddar cheese before adding the mixed vegetables. The cheese adds a little richness to the mix.

    1. It depends if you like a lot of chicken in it or not. I would start with a 12.5 ounce can, drained, and then see how it looks to you. You can always add a little more. 🙂
