Easy Chicken Pot Pie {Day 15}

I love a good Chicken Pot Pie. Not the kind baked in a pie plate with a crust on the bottom because those remind me of the little-frozen pot pies I’d eat as a kid. I’m talking about the kind where there is no crust underneath all that yummy goodness. This recipe, I like to call One of Everything Chicken Pot Pie, because basically it consists of one of each item. A recipe that is easy to remember.

When I was first married I brought a cookbook into our marriage that I bought on my travels to a teacher’s convention. Since we were taking the back roads to Savannah, Georgia, and back home, I drove because I knew the way. On the way home that Saturday, we stopped at my all time favorite BBQ restaurant. While we were there I picked up a cookbook that was being sold as a fundraiser for the local school. To this day, it is still my favorite cookbook.

Easy Chicken Pot Pie - 31 Days of Homemaking {Day 15} l frogslilypad.net

In the book was a very simple chicken pie with no crust on the bottom. I loved how the recipe only called for 1 chicken and 2 cans of cream soups. The crust was similar to the one that my great aunt would make. I can still remember were her chicken pot pies and how there was never any left in the dish at our reunions.

Over the years I did make a few changes to the original recipe and now that I’m writing about it, I may have to give the original another try because I remember how good it was as it is written.


  • 1 chicken cooked and shredded – reserve the broth
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup or HOMEMADE
  • 1 soup can of chicken broth
  • 1 large can mixed vegetables, drained

  • 1 cup of self-rising flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 stick of butter melted and cooled

Preheat oven 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together chicken and vegetables. In a medium bowl, mix soup and broth together and whisk until smooth, pour over chicken. Pour into a 9x13 baking dish.

Whisk flour, milk, and butter together until there are no lumps. Pour mixture over chicken and bake for one hour.

This recipe is SO easy to make, it has become a tradition for me to give a copy of the recipe at bridal showers. All new brides need recipes and I know new husbands appreciate them just as well.
