Sometimes the simplest things are the best

I make the best chicken pot pie that you have ever tasted. Really, I do. I cant tell you how many people have asked for my recipe. I've been making it so long that I cant even remember where I got the recipe. I have a vague memory that my Aunt Myrtis just verbally told me the recipe one day about 20 years ago, and I have been making it ever since.

It is probably the best dish that I make, and I make it for all occasions.

Have surgery? You get a chicken pot pie.

Death in family? I'll bring over a chicken pot pie.

I even have a friend that I just trade dishes with sometimes. She brings me sausage stir fry and picks up a chicken pot pie. Works really well for both of us.

But, I hesitate to give you this recipe. Your going to read it and think it is so simple that there is no way it is as tasty as I claim. But sometimes, the simplest things are the best. And this is one of them:

Preheat oven to 375.

Get a Pillsbury pie crust (in a red box in the fridge section).

Spray a casserole dish with Pam and put one pie crust on the bottom.

Bake a whole chicken, then take it off the bone (or get one already cooked, or just cook some chicken breasts and chopped them up)

Mix the chicken with one can of cream of chicken soup, one can of chicken broth, one can of veg-all and salt and pepper. Mix well.

Pour the mixture into the casserole dish and Cover with the second pie crust.

Bake for 40-50 minutes or until brown on top.

Now, go amaze your family and friends with the simplest of dishes.

Welcome to Foodie Friday. This is such a wonderful post. When a one pot meal is this portable and adaptable, it's a major keeper. I love how pre-cooked chicken can be added. This is very close to my mother's chicken pot pie recipe, and I can vouch for it's deliciousness. She also uses the frozen pie pastry for chicken 'n dumplings.
