Semi Homemade Chicken Pot Pie | Not just for chicken! A great way to use up some of the leftover Thanksgiving Turkey! Tastes just like you made it from scratch! With big pieces of chicken, a cream gravy and a crispy topping no one will know or even care that everything wasn’t made from scratch. A delicious hearty meal that will warm you from the inside out!
You don’t have to buy high sodium frozen chicken pot pies anymore! This is the perfect meal to take over to a elderly couple. Take it to them hot fresh out of the oven, leave the dough raw and freeze the pie before taking it to them for a meal they can enjoy some other time. Also, this pie can be divided into smaller pies. This is great for those of us that can’t eat a whole pot pie in a few days.
Switch up this recipe to create a delicious holiday appetizer! HERE’S HOW: Press an unbaked store bought crescent roll (I use Pillsbury) into the bottom and up the sides of a muffin cup, spoon filling into the cup and bake until the crescent roll is golden. No need to add dough to the top for this appetizer. I’m sorry my recipe mistakenly got deleted so I don’t know how many appetizers this recipe will make. If someone does transform this recipe into an appetizer would you please share how many it made? ♥

For the Filling
- 3 pounds whole deli roasted chicken, shredded (about 2 1/2 cups)
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup plus 2 teaspoons all purpose flour
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- 1 teaspon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup frozen diced onion
- 2 cups frozen diced carrots
- 8 ounce fresh or frozen sliced white mushrooms
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 2 cups chicken stock or broth
For the Crust
- 10 frozen biscuits (I use Pillsbury) or 2 store bought pie dough crusts
For the Egg Wash
- 1 large egg yolk
- 1 tablespoon cold water
Preheat oven to 400°
For the Filling:
In a large skillet, melt butter, sprinkle flour over butter and mix until smooth; cook 1 minute. Stir in broth and cream. Simmer until thickened. Add poultry seasoning, salt, pepper, onion, carrots and mushrooms. Turn down heat and cook until vegetables are tender (about 2 minutes). Stir in peas and chicken (about 2 1/2 cups).
For the Crust:
Press 5 biscuits in the bottom and up the sides to the top of a 2 quart baking dish. Pour prepared filling on top of bottom crust. Roll remaining 5 biscuits large enough to hang over the top of the baking dish. In a small bowl whisk together the egg yolk and water. Brush to top of the bottom crust, add the top crust, fold the top crust over the bottom crust to create a seal and crimp. Brush the top crust with the egg wash. If you want, add a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
Cover with foil and bake 10 minutes, remove foil and continue baking for 20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
