Chicken pot pies

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

A delicious and creamy chicken pot pie recipe that’s simple to make, fabulous for a weeknight meal, and an absolute crowd pleaser for hungry children!

This Chicken pot pie is satisfyingly creamy. I’ve been making this recipe for years now, and it’s one of the kids’ favourites (and mine too!). The recipe is not overly complicated to make, and it’s a great weeknight dinner idea.

To make this meal stretch a little further for my hubby and son (who both like to get a big feed!), I add an additional chicken breast, carrot and 1/3 cup more chicken stock along with a splash of cream to the below recipe.

I serve it in ramekins for myself and the girls, but my hubby and son need something a little bigger as we have found a ramekin doesn’t fill them up. I use the Mixtur oven dish from Ikea for each of them, it’s a 14cm square glass dish, and is big enough for a hungry man single-size serve.

My kids love when I make a pie with pastry crust as they use the left over pieces to decorate the tops of their pie. We have lots of fun and laughter together when cooking dinner!

I love dinners like these that can be made ahead of time – it helps a lot on busy weeknights. If you’re looking for more hearty dinner ideas like this one, be sure to check out my new cookbook!

This may be a dumb question, but what do you serve these pot pies on? Do you put the little soufflé dishes onto a regular plate? I’d be worried that fiddling with the soufflé dish might break the plate.

I let them cool a little as the pie is really hot and I don’t want the kids to burn their tongue. I then put the dishes on the dinner plates to protect the table.

Just wondering whether you think the mixture would be ok to make the day before then just reheat put in ramekins top with pastry then bake?

hi do you think it would work as 1 pie as I don’t have individual ramekins and sounds delicious…

Silly question but if freezing… Do you cook them first and cool them and then freeze or do you freeze them uncooked in the ramekins?

I would make the mixture, then freeze. Then when ready to eat, defrost spoon into ramekins and top with pastry, then put in oven for 30min, this will heat mixture and cook pastry.

My question is the same as Kim’s can we make as 1 pie.

Hi ladies, sure i can’t see why not. I think they would turn out just as nice.

I am going to try you chicken pie, it sounds delicious. Instead of cream I will try Carnation lite cream and see how it goes.

That’s probably a healthier option Sue, let me know how it goes!
