Yummy Chicken Pot Pie

Everyone who knows me knows how much I have loved my crock-pot over the years. This past Christmas my parents bought me a pressure cooker and I fell in love with what I have deemed "A crock pot on steroids!" I seriously love this thing! I especially love cooking chicken in it. Its great for chicken and Rice, chicken for enchiladas, pulled pork, carrots, potatoes....the list goes on and on!

So recently Hunter went out of town for work and we had some fall weather come through that made me want to make a Chicken Pot Pie. He is not a big fan of chicken pot pie, so I seemed like good timing to make one with him not here to eat it!  This pie turned out amazing and I used my pressure cooker for the chicken. This is a pretty straight forward recipe so I wanted to share it with Y'all. Even if you do not have a pressure cooker you can cook your chicken in your preferred method and add to pie.

Yummy Chicken Pot Pie

  • 2-3 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast (Cooked and Shredded)
  • 1 Pkg refrigerated Pie Crust
  • 1 Bag of Frozen Vegetable Mix
  • 1 16 oz Cream of Chicken
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of Sour Cream (optional)
  • Chicken Broth (if not using a pressure Cooker)

Preheat Oven 350 Degrees

For Pressure Cooker Chicken:

  1. Place chicken in cooker on metal grate. 
  2. Add about 1/2 cup water. I seasoned chicken with garlic powder, s&p, and cavenders. 
  3. Lock cooker and set for HIGH pressure for 20 Minutes. 
  4. When finished, take chicken out and shred. 
  5. Save chicken broth in cooker to add to pie filling.

Pot Pie Filling:
  1. On stove top, heat vegetable mix, cream of chicken, sour cream, and add broth from cooker (about 1 1/2 cups).  ***Note: You can make this without the sour cream, but I love food with rich flavor and this did it for me!
  2. Add shredded chicken and cook until sauce thickens enough that it is not runny. 
  3. Remember to grease pie pan and mold bottom pie crust in pie pan.
  4. Add pie filling 
  5. Cover with top pie crust. Round edges & cut center
  6. Cook in oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees
  7. Enjoy!

Hope this meal warms your hearts and bellies as much as it did for me and the girls!

Till Next Time,

Lucky Scraps

Here is just a quick update on a few things we have been working on in the Lucky household. I am going to start listing some of my Lucky crafts on Etsy and Facebook for sale. First to load up are the Lucky Scraps Wreaths and Bow Holders. I will eventually add some of the other boutique items I will be selling such as pacifier clips, ribbon garlands, and handmade crib mobiles. Hopefully, after I set up over on Etsy I will have easy ordering and payment options.

The Lucky7s Studio portion will be party stationary and printables. That will take me a while to go through about eight years of files and parties to update and package for Etsy and home blog (so bear with ME as a I bear with chasing around the year and half year old =)

I am also going to be doing a few collegiate wreaths soon and will update as soon as I have more then just the Florida State beauty that I am keeping for myself ;)
