    My pie turned out great! I used a deep dish pie crust and a refrigerated pie crust to go on top. Both store-bought. I took my pie out about 5 minutes earlier than the recipe said because it was getting pretty crispy. Also, I used frozen peas, carrots, and corn as my veggies!

    I cooked my own chicken breast in the crockpot. The filling flavor wasnt wow-worthy- just good. Also do not cook the bottom pie crust for recommended time- maybe 10 min. (I used a store bought pilsbury crust)

    I made this last night. My husband was so delighted, he posted a photo on Facebook and got, as of right now, 119 likes or wows or hearts and maybe 50 comments. Substituted a thawed bag of mixed vegetables of carrots, corn and asparagus.

    im disappointed that the recipe lacked info... didn't say 2 pie shells in ingredients list. Nor did it say egg and water. how much water? so far.. that's a bummer.

    It was good. Spices were not quite enough for me. I will make it again and tweak a bit. Good recipe.

    This was easily the best CPP I’ve ever tasted! I had a leftover pie dough that I used in the pie dish with a store bought dough on top Also added about 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese before closing up the pie and baking Absolutely delicious!

    Super! I made extra (double) filling but then realized that I didn't have enough pie crust to make two pies so I made the extra into a casserole with almost like a pancake patter on the top. I then put that into the oven and cooked it with the other pie and it turned out amazing!

    This recipe was a BIG hit for my family! This Chicken Pot Pie will go into my recipe cabinet and will use it for years to come! I did not use the onions since my husband won’t eat them but it still turned out amazing! Thank you for sharing this!

    This turned out very well, definitely will make again. As others have said, bake the bottom crust less than instructions.

    This was terrific as a soup! Just add a cup and a half more broth and extra water to your own desired thickness.

    This was by far the BEST chicken pot pie we have ever had! It is indeed rich and creamy, with no changes to the recipe. The only suggestion is to mention that your ingredient "1 pie crust (store bought)" was indeed 2 crusts in the event people (like me!) sometimes just start cooking without reading the instructions fully. And the timing was a little long for the base crust and the final bake for me, however it could just be my oven is hotter. Kudos to the Chef on this one!

    Super tasty. Made with some left over Greek rotisserie chicken 👌. I agree with some comments on here, less time for the bottom crust.

    Pretty good! I found out the hard way that 25-30 minutes was WAY too long for the bottom crust to cook, otherwise we enjoyed it!
