Thursday's Ramblings - A Quick and Simple Recipe - Chicken Pot Pie #ThursdayRamblings

My ramblings for the next few weeks are going to be recipes or thoughts or just pictures.
Just because.

Today's recipe is a simple Chicken Pot Pie. I make 3 or 4 of these at a time and freeze most of them. Keeping 1 for dinner - lol. It takes about an hour in a 350 oven to reheat a frozen one, so it's a super go to meal on a busy night.

Most of my recipes are from scratch, but this is a cheat recipe. It uses a can of soup, frozen veggies and I use premade pie shells.

If - ever - there is a time when I'm really bored, I'll make the pie shells from scratch.

Note - the can of soup flavour - I suggested 4 different ones - they all work and it depends on your taste - but it has to be "Cream of..."

Also - please note - I'm not an expert at writing out recipes - I'm a romance writer. So if there's an issue - let me know and if you don't understand - ask.

Where did I get this recipe? Who knows - I've had it for well over a decade.

Chicken Pot Pie

2 premade pie shells - thawed
1 can soup (Cream of Potato, Cream of Celery, Cream of Chicken, Cream of Mushroom)
1 cup Frozen veggies - the mixed kind - carrots, peas corn
2 cups cooked diced chicken
Milk - 1/2 a soup can - add more if it seems really dry - shouldn't be sloppy
1/2 tsp thyme - adjust to taste
1/2 tsp pepper - adjust to taste
1 egg - beaten

Turn oven to 350. (Sorry I don't know what that is in the other measurements).
In a bowl mix all the ingredients from soup to pepper. Pour into 1 pie shell. Carefully place other pie shell on top. With a pastry brush, egg wash the beaten egg over the top of the pie crust.

Place in preheated oven and bake for 40 minutes.

Reheats great for leftovers.

This recipes is very forgiving. You can add and subtract things based on your personal preferences.
