Easy Chicken Pot Pie

Photobucket
Chicken Pot Pie is one of my specialties.
It's perfect to serve when friends come for dinner.
It's also perfect for a good family meal.
Can't resist sharing this picture of the most gigantic Chicken Pot Pie I ever made. PhotobucketIt took 3 boxes of Pillsbury pie crust.
It was baked in an old apple dish that belong to Greg's Mamaw.
This is the easiest! Photobucket It's the first recipe I ever used to make Chicken Pot Pie.
Honestly~it's just as scrumptious as Ina's recipe that I use when things get really fancy for dinner guest. Here's what you need: Photobucket3 chicken breasts {baked and cut or shredded into pieces} 
2 Pillsbury Pie Crust {2 pastries come folded in one box} 
2 cans Veg-all 1 medium onion {chopped and sauteed} 
1 1/2 cups of celery, with leaves {chopped and sauteed} 
1 can Cream of Chicken soup 
 1 can Cream of Celery soup 
1 cup chicken broth 
1 tablespoon corn starch {optional} 
1 egg mixed with a splash of H20 to brush on pastry 
salt and pepper to taste 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Photobucket Begin with the chicken. I seasoned this chicken with seasoning salt, olive oil, and a splash of white wine. Bake at 375 for about 45 minutes. Chop celery and onion. Photobucket Saute chopped celery and onions in a little butter and chicken broth. Photobucket Shred the chicken with fingers or cut into bite size pieces. Photobucket Roll out one of the Pillsbury pie crust onto a floured surface.
Place pie crust in deep pie dish or casserole dish of choice. Photobucket Place chicken in first on top of crust. Empty soup cans into medium sized bowl. Photobucket Sometimes I stir in 1 tablespoon of corn starch just to make sure the soup and broth bake up to a thick sauce. Slowly begin to add chicken broth to soup stirring as you pour.
 Make sure there aren't any clumps of soup. Photobucket Stir until smooth.
Now pour Veg-all into a large bowl. Add sauteed onions and celery to Veg-all. Photobucket Now you'll mix it all together. Photobucket Pour the soup/veggie mix over the chicken. Photobucket This is when things start to get seriously good. Photobucket I mean I could totally eat that entire bowl of chicken pot pie goodness. Photobucket Roll out the second pastry on a floured surface. Gently place pastry on top of the pie mix. Photobucket Crimp the pie around the edges. Mix up a little dish of egg with a splash of water. Photobucket Brush the egg mix on top of the pie and around the edges. Photobucket This will help the pie to brown up nicely.
Sprinkle a little salt and pepper for taste. Photobucket Cut 4 slits on top of the pie. Photobucket Place pie on a baking sheet, just in case it bubbles over while baking. Photobucket Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until lightly brown.
Keep an eye on things during baking.
If the edges of the crust are browning too quickly, cover them with foil.
Let the pie sit for 20 minutes or so before serving.
How good does this look! Photobucket So easy! 
It's the perfect meal.
Your family and friends are going to LOVE all over you when this
Chicken Pot Pie is served.
That's a promise!
Enjoy!
P.S. Don't serve this to someone you don't won't LOVIN' on you! ;)
