Chicken Pot Pie can be made in many different ways. This version was made primarily from cans of food that I found while organizing my kitchen cabinets and determining what was on hand.

I posted a recipe for Turkey Pot Pie back in 2015. That recipe made use of Thanksgiving leftovers, and the “crust” was made by mixing biscuit mix, milk and eggs with seasonings. This chicken pot pie is made from mostly canned ingredients and uses a tube of refrigerated crescent rolls for the crust on top.

Our Chicken Pot Pie is simple to prepare, and it’s delicious. Everyone in my household loved it and went back for seconds. While this recipe could probably serve eight, I suggest that you only plan on serving it to four because your family will want seconds. (That’s what happened in our house. Sue Chef and I only had one serving, but Baker’s Man and the boys ate two servings each.)

  1. I love how all your recipes have cost per serving and nutritional information included. It is great information for people trying to cook healthier food so a budget.

    1. Thank you. I have considered not including both of them in the recipes because it’s a lot of extra work, but if it helps one person, then I suppose it’s worth the extra effort.

    1. This recipe is very easy to make which works out well on a busy weeknight when I come home tired. I read on your website that you’re on a heart healthy diet, so you’ve inspired me to remake some of these recipes using lower sodium ingredients.
