Just look at a few of their comments.
“My friends claim it was the best pie pot they have ever had.”
“This is the best chicken pot pie I have made or eaten! The crust is a nice texture and is easy to assemble. It could not be better in our opinion!”
“Wow! Amazing flavor! Shared with our neighbor friends. Rave reviews! Goodness, it was tasty!”
And look, there’s no denying that pie crust made lovingly by hand tastes better. But is it always worth the extra time and effort of mixing, chilling, rolling, and baking dough?
Honestly, sometimes, no.
By incorporating sour cream and a single egg into the recipe, our test cooks were able to make a pie dough that was considerably more malleable and easy to handle. With this recipe, the days of working with stubborn, misshapen, cracked pie dough are behind you.
But that’s not the only place you save time—because “store-bought” isn’t always a dirty word around here.

The process of making this pot pie is streamlined even further by using rotisserie chicken, thanks to its undeniable convenience. Once the precooked chicken is shredded, it’s ready to be used! Also, cutting up the vegetables into small pieces allows you to use just a single pot and cook them in a mere 20 minutes.
Do you really need any more reasons to make this delicious, fan-favorite chicken pot pie? I didn’t think so.
