Chicken Pot Pie with Quick Spooned On Crust for Busy Weeknights

Don’t have time to mess with pastry for a crust? Try this chicken pot pie with quick spooned on crust recipe any night of the week!


Mmm. Chicken pot pie has got to be one of my most favorite comfort foods ever. It’s right up there with homemade Shepherd’s Pie, Lasagna and a nice Roast Beef Dinner!

But who has time for making the crust on a busy day? Not me! Plus I’m actually kinda terrible at pastry of any kind.

So instead of avoiding chicken pot pie all together, I’ve tweaked and re-tweaked this old recipe with a quick spooned on crust for years. Now it’s one of our family favorites!
