An easy homemade pot pie only requires a few ingredients: chicken, vegetables, cream of chicken soup, and puff pastry. Combine vegetables, chicken and soup. Pour into an ungreased 9-inch pie pan, unroll the puff pastry, and lay over the pie pan. Press down, and bake for 30 to 45 minutes.
This recipe is flexible to suit different tastes and dietary needs. Omit the chicken and replace the cream of chicken soup with vegetable stock for a vegetarian friendly meal. You could also use pre-made biscuits instead of a puff pastry for a pot pie with a thicker, fuller crust and easier to portion. Make this pot pie vegan by altering the vegetarian recipe with vegan biscuits or pie crust.
The possibilities are endless for fillings, as well. Choose any combination of vegetables, meat and herbs. A creamier filling that's also vegetarian or vegan can be achieved by adding almond milk or cream of mushroom soup. Pot pie doesn't have to served in a pie dish either, so feel free to feed many with an 9 by 12 baking dish or individually serve it in ramekins. This classic, comforting recipe is easy as pie and can be altered to suit anyone's preference for taste and texture.
