Chicken Pot Pie Filling & Top Crust
Chicken pot pie is all about the filling and the crust! And these super simple ingredients will have you singing this recipe’s praises!
- cooked diced chicken – This is a perfect use for leftover chicken or even rotisserie chicken!
- frozen vegetables – I like using the pre-bagged corn, peas, carrots and green beans but you can use any combo you prefer.
- can of cream of celery – You can substitute cream of chicken if you would like. I prefer the celery.
- chicken broth – Quality chicken broth is a must! I use better than bouillon mixed with water to make this recipe extra easy.
- ground pepper – Don’t skip! This gives the recipe an extra bit of flavor!
- baking mix – I use Bisquick which is easy to keep on hand since you can make so many things with it.
- milk – Using 2% worked great for this recipe, but whole or 1% would work as well.
- butter – I prefer using melted butter to create a more cake-y top crust. You can use cold butter if you would prefer to make more of a biscuit topping.
