Chicken Pot Pie

There are many different ways to make chicken pot pie. Most of which are very elaborate and time consuming. As I am not a fan of cooking and am all about quick and delicious, this recipe is perfect! My dear friend, Stacey, told me how to make this once as she threw it together herself. I don't know how I lived without it before!

You'll need:

Pie plate
(It doesn't have to be as awesome as mine)
 Mixed veggies, thawed
I usually just throw them in the bowl before doing anything else. They thaw enough.

 Refrigerator pie crusts, thawed
Set these out at the beginning, too.

 Cream of potato soup
No more Weis brand :(
-whatever you like to flavor your chicken with
-a little chicken bouillon if you wish
-milk
-salt and pepper

Chop up your chicken and cook it with your favorite seasoning.

Mix the cooked chicken with the veggies and cream of potato soup.
Add a little milk (quarter cup maybe?), salt and pepper, and chicken bouillon.
Stir together in a bowl bigger than this one.
I always forget to use a bigger bowl!
Line your pie plate with one of the crusts and pile in your chicken mix.

Cover with the second pie crust and cinch the edges.
Derek does not care about appearance, only taste. PTL!

Sometimes if I'm feeling really motivated, I'll melt some butter and brush it on the top. That is very rare.

It might not be a terrible idea to cut some slits in the top before baking. I don't know. I've never done it.

Bake until golden brown (20-30 min.)
(I wish I could give you a more precise bake time but our oven in PA was over 50 years old and the one here... well notice how the sun is long gone in the final pic...)
It took 2 hours to bake this in the stupid oven here!! 

I can't even talk about it anymore.

Don't worry. It won't take yours nearly that long!

The end result was so scrumptious that we forgot all about how stinkin' long we had to wait for it. Now I remember. Now I'm annoyed again.

Anyway, this is the perfect recipe for non-cooks like me! Enjoy!
