    Made it


    1. Adjust a rack to sit on the lowest position in the oven. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
    2. Place one pie crust into a 9” pie plate. Line with a sheet of parchment paper large enough to hang over the edges of the plate, and fill with pie weights.
    3. Bake the crust on the lowest rack for 15-17 minutes, until the edges of the crust are the slightest bit golden and the center of the crust is matte.

    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!

    I skipped the crust and added another cup and a half of chicken broth to make it a soup. Turned out amazing!!
