Momâs chicken pot pie is a great recipe for using up cooked chicken leftovers, or indeed turkey if you have leftovers after Thanksgiving or Christmas time.
This delicious recipe has been generously shared by our Lovefoodies friend Sally.
Sally tells me itâs a family favorite and was originally her Momâs recipe.
For this recipe, Sally has used store cupboard ingredients for convenience. Of course, when you have leftovers and youâre looking to use them up, itâs always handy to have a few cans of vegetables and soup in the cupboard. this will certainly help you to make a whole new dish using up leftovers and it will most definitely be delicious!
If you have leftover vegetables from your chicken or turkey dinner, feel free to use those instead of the canned vegetables. Keep to roughly the same quantities as stated in the ingredients and the proportions will work fine for you.
Momâs chicken pot pie is a great dish to serve up at potlucks, church dinners and parties. You can make large serving batches and easily transport in the trays and simply pop on the table for serving.

Prep Time: 30
Cook Time: 1 hour
Yield: 3 -5 Persons
You will Need: An oven proof casserole dishÂ 8.5 x 11 inches and at least 3 inches deep.
2-3 lbs / 1 -2 Kilo chicken breast â split with skin and bones
6 cups / 1.5 liters water / chicken broth (you will use this water to cook the chicken breasts â then use as your broth)
10 3/4 oz / 320 ml can Cream of chicken soup
10Â¾ oz / 320 ml can cream of celery soup
4oz / 60g Stick butter
2-3 Tablespoons flour
10-16 oz/ 280 g can sliced carrots (drained)
10-16 oz / 280 g can sliced peas (drained)
8 oz / 225 g package mushrooms (chopped or sliced)
1 small onion (finely chopped)
1 cup / 60 g celery (thinly sliced)
4-6 EGGS-hard boiled (thinly sliced)
1/2 -1 teaspoon SALT (more or less to your taste)
1/2 teaspoon white / red or black pepper
1 package biscuit mix (5Â½ ounces)
1/2 teaspoon salt (more or less to your taste)
1 cup / 230 ml (+/-) milk
1/2 stick / 2 oz / 60 g butter
Preheat oven to 350F / 170 C / Gas 3
1. Cook chicken breasts in a large pot covering with water, lightly salt & pepper. Cook over medium high heat for 45-60 minutes. Remove from water to cool, skin and debone and chop into bite sized pieces.
2. Using a pan that will go into the oven use something like a Dutch OvenÂ or anÂ oven proof casserole dishÂ 8.5 x 11 inches and at least 3 inches deep. Â Start layering the chicken pot pie, using the chicken that youâve just chopped.
3. Next add the entire can of drained carrots, peas, chopped/sliced mushrooms, chopped onion and the celery; in this order.
4. Hard boil the eggs for about 20 minutes, peel and thinly slice. (You can purchase an egg slicer very cheap and works great for this recipe.) Now layer on top of the other vegetables in your Dutch Oven.
5. In a medium sized sauce pan, melt butter, add flour and a dash of salt; mix well with a whisk. Gradually add and mix both cans of soup and adding one can at a time of the chicken broth/water; two cans usually does the trick. (Something else that I do is cook down the broth until itâs condensed into about this 2 can amount- it gives it a richer taste.)
Use a wire whisk to mix, add the salt and pepper mix well until you get a pourable soup and pour over the vegetables in your pot until the soup comes just to the bottom of the layered eggs.
I have a habit of overfilling these pans (kinda like a purse) and invariably it will over run the pan so a catch pan underneath covered with foil is a help.
6. Mix the biscuit mix with melted butter, salt and milk â again use the wire whisk to make a smooth pourable batter. Pour over the top â should cover almost completely.
7. Place Dutch Oven pan in oven and bake for approximately 1 hour . Top should be golden brown and bubbly.
