Easy Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken pot pie is one of my favorite fall entrees so it is perfect for the first recipe of Fall Recipe Week here on The SAH Life. It's one of those dishes that bring back memories of childhood and simpler times. I have always loved pot pies. The flaky crust, delicious mix of chicken and vegetables all coated in a yummy gravy. Whenever I make one, I feel like I'm joining June Clever in the kitchen. To me, it's a quintessentially American dish. The Irish have their delicious shepherd's pie (another of my favorites), the English have their meat pasties and over on this side of the pond we have our chicken pot pies.

While it may look complicated to make, it's actually an easy classic meal to make. On brisk, chill autumn evenings or in the cold of winter, this chicken pot pie is sure to warm up the whole family and leave everyone smiling. The Beav might show up for a slice it's so good.

Fall Recipe Week
All week I'm introducing you to easy, tasty recipes that are perfect for fall. Stop by each day so you don't miss out on learning how to make my rosemary and garlic pork chops with cranberry quinoa, best-ever apple crisp, spiced apple cake with cinnamon sugar buttercream frosting, and homemade cinnamon applesauce. I'm also sharing a roundup of yummy autumn recipes.

My chicken pot pie recipe is really incredibly easy to make. I use cubed chicken breasts, refrigerator crusts, cream of chicken soup, veggies, spices and potatoes baked in the microwave. It is pretty quick to throw together, too. The most time is spent with the pot pie baking in the oven until it's crisp and golden.

All together and ready for the top crust.
Crust on and ready to bake.
Ready to eat.
