Yield:
6 to 8 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken tenders (about 10 tenders)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup frozen pearl onions
  • 1 cup frozen peas and diced carrots
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 store bought pie crust, unbaked and thawed if frozen
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
Directions

Special equipment: 10-inch cast-iron pan

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Sprinkle the chicken tenders with paprika, sage, oregano, salt and pepper. Heat a 10-inch cast-iron pan over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. When the oil begins to swirl, add the seasoned chicken and saute until cooked through, about 4 minutes on the first side and 3 minutes on the second side. Remove the chicken to a plate with tongs, leaving the oil in the pan. Rest the chicken for a few minutes, and then chop into 1/2-inch cubes.

To the same pan, add the onions and peas and carrots and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir and cook until the onions become tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute longer. Sprinkle in the flour and stir until the flour dissolves into the vegetables and juices. Add the chicken stock and raise to a simmer, stirring until thickened. Once the liquid has thickened, stir in the heavy cream. Season with salt, if needed.

Return the chicken to the pan. Unfold the pie crust and place over the top of the filling, tucking the excess edges inside the pan. Brush the crust evenly with the egg wash. Using a knife, gently cut 3 vents in the top of the crust. Place in the oven and bake until the crust is golden brown, about 20 minutes.

followed the recipe exactly and now I'm staring at soup with a well done crust on top.  Disappointed. I checked the liquid ingredients and thickened as instructed. Thought it was soupy before I put the crust on...so removed a tad of the liquid....still it's a soup dish. Tasty but not what I had in mind for good chicken pie. Easy yes. Successful no. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made some slight variations to this but for the most part, I followed it!  I didn't have pearl onions on hand, so I used a regular onion.  I didn't have frozen peas so I drained a can of peas. I had some shredded carrots and celery that I chopped up in my food processor already in the freezer (great to have already done ahead of time...by in bulk...shred and chop in food processor and freeze...makes easy meals and soups!), along with some diced potatoes that I froze in chicken broth, so I threw that in too.  I had half a rotisserie chicken already debone and shredded so I use that instead.  I sprinkled the veggies with paprika, sage, garlic salt, oregano and I added thyme to the mix.  Everything else was the same.  I used the next size up skillet from what Sunny used in the video. I used a roll out pie crust and rolled it out with a hand roller to make it stretch a little farther.  It was DELICIOUS and it was super easy! LOVED THIS SUNNY! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was pretty good! Tasted WAY better after sitting in the fridge overnight as expected; totally had it for breakfast after the sleepover. Would definitely make my own crust a la Barefoot Contessa (my main girl) next time to take it over the top. Didn't care too much for the whole pearl onions or the small dice frozen veggies (a bit texturally odd), would definitely substitute rough chopped fresh onion and sliced carrot coins next time. Liked the spice rub on the chicken, though! Definitely good if in a rush, but the extra effort required to make a pot pie from scratch is so worth it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
First, let me say, I'm vegetarian but I made this for my carnivorous husband and children. I've made this recipe twice, only modifying it by adding about 1/8 cup of chopped celery, and THEY LOVE IT! They say it's well-seasoned, creamy and rich and the crust is flaky and light. The house smells wonderful when this pot pie is cooking in the oven! Two thumbs up! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Perfect recipe although I did make some changes after reading the reviews. I substituted thyme for sage added a potato (seasoned with salt and butter) and used slightly less chicken broth. For people who said it was bland keep tasting and seasoning as you go along. My family loved it and the amount of chicken in each bite was plentiful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved it!!! I will definitely be making this again. I used a rotisserie chicken since I was pressed for time and I'm not a big onion fan so I just used 1/4 of a regular onion and let the flavor soak in the mix the discarded it. I also used 2 pie crusts for extra flakiness item not reviewed by moderator and published

This dish was excellent. I did find it was a little too much liquid as I was making it so I cut that back some. Next time I will add a whole cup of carrots and a whole cup of peas. The chicken with the rub gave it a wonderful flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published

An easy, simple and very tasty pot pie. We all loved it and I will be making this again. I will add more than two cups of veggies next time, but it is delicious. No leftovers...everyone had seconds or thirds! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was outstanding! Some seriously delicious comfort food. I used a homemade whole roasted chicken (chicken was stuffed with lemon, onion, several cloves of garlic, salt and pepper and topped with 1/2 stick butter, fresh thyme, salt & pepper, and trader joes everyday seasoning). Also I added a 1/2 cup of frozen corn, fresh thyme in place of sage in this recipe and topped with Pillsbury biscuits instead of pie crust. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Super easy and delicious! My husband and the kids loved it and my older son even said it was the best pot pie he had ever had!! I have made others but will be making this one from now on ;-) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome! Shredded up a rotisserie chicken and sprinkled the herbs and seasonings over the cooked chicken. Made the filling of veggies per the recipe and a little grapeseed oil. Put chicken back in and filled a deep dish, ceramic pie pan. Placed a decadent French pastry over the top which did shrink so I'd make sure to roll it out/stretch it all the way to the edge of the pie pan. So, so good. One minor note is when they tell you that you need a cup of peas and carrots, I was unable to find frozen peas and carrots together so I chopped half a cup of carrots. Watch the salt too as rotisserie chickens can be more seasoned so you don't need much salt, if any. item not reviewed by moderator and published
AWESOME!! Made the chicken night before so when I got home from work I put it together, bought pillsbury refrigerated crust. My son raved about it and I'm a pie snob. I used all the liquid and just thickened it with Wondra flour for sauces, no lumps. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I loved this recipe! I pretty much did what the others did: top & bottom crust, more herbs, and less liquid. Instead of cooking chicken, I bought a rotisserie a chicken. It made it super flavorful and even added to quickness, simplicity, and deliciousness of the dish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Quite amazing for an impromptu late night date night. I added celery while reducing the soup base and feel it added a nice texture. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am a bit of a chicken pot pie snob, I love the stuff. And this was the best one I think I've ever had. Seriously. I did 1 can of chicken broth so that is under 2 cups and I did 3/4 cup cream. Also I did almost 1/2 tsp of thyme as well. And I did what everyone else said which was to add the spices/herbs to the sauce later instead of onto the chicken. I also did a bottom and top pie crust cause I think the crust is the best part of chicken pot pie! My husband and I almost at the whole thing ourselves in 1 night. YUM! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I LOVE this recipe but i did make a few changes that improved it a lot. First off I cut the amount of stock and cream by half of the suggested amount since I found it to be very soupy. Also I add one cup of chopped broccoli and a small can of mushrooms, so there is a good meat to veggie ratio. But those are just my changes but at it's core it's a great recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was soooooooo delicious! This was the best chicken pot pie ever, the whole family loved it ! Thanks Sunny! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Have always loved Chicken Pot Pie, so when I found this I got excited. When I told my girls I was making this for dinner I got the "e<a href="http://www">www.#60;/a> I don't like chicken pot pie". I made it anyways and not only did they and my parents love this but everyone went back for seconds. I had doubled the recipe since I was feeding a large crew. There was not a drop left. I will say that the only thing that I did different is, I used chicken breast cut up into bite size pieces, used frozen soup veggies (potatoes, corn, green beans, carrots, and peas. I cut up half the chicken and put it in a bowl, drizzled with olive oil and spices, then finished the chicken and repeated with oil and spices. I let it marinated for about 30 mins and then sauted and continued on with the recipe. I am making this again tonight and the girls are really excited after a long day at school. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This pot pie is delicious and deserves a 5 star except the recipe calls for too much liquid. In order to reduce the liquid I had to cook so long the vegetables were way over done. I would suggest cutting down on the amount of chicken broth. It was so runny it overwhelmed the crust when place on the top. The recipe is certainly adaptable for a lot of different additions such as mushrooms that you might want to add. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good recipe that I tweaked a little- I used two pie crusts instead of one. I also added a little butter and sautéed some baby bella mushrooms and added a splash of Marsala wine with them. I used a package of mixed frozen veggies and didn't do the egg wash. Came out great, hubby loved it too item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe is so flavorful! I always know a recipe is a keeper if my husband goes back for seconds. This one is a definite keeper because he went even wanted a third serving of it! And I love how easy it was and how easy cleanup is since you bake the pie in the same skillet you precook the ingredients in. Definite keeper!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

We are a family of 6 kids who all have different likes and dislikes, but this recipe received an 8.5 out of 10 from all my constituents. I liked that I could make the filling earlier in the day, refrigerate until we were ready to assemble the pie and cook for twenty minutes. I did have leeks that needed to be used so I added them in with the peas and they were great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My mother made this pie for a big family meal last week, it was fabulous! Even the One-Who-Does-Not-Eat-Carrots liked it(that's saying something I can tell you! I could only have made this pie better by making my own pastry instead if buying it. : item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have been looking for a pot pie recipe and this was quick and simple. The chicken was moist and flavorful, which was a plus since I don't care for white meat. I also added some sliced mushrooms and extra chicken flavoring. The crust turned out perfect. I will definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Best chicken pot pie ever!! Followed the recipe almost to the tee, which is unusual for me, but I'm glad I did. I don't think I could have made any improvements.

This recipe was great! I didn't have any heavy cream, so I used a can of cream of celery soup and a splash of half and half. I used diced onion (which I sauteed with the frozen peas and carrots instead of frozen onions. I put it in the oven before I left for football practice and had the oven turn off automatically. When I got home, it was perfect! My 12 year old and 9 year old both liked it... Definitely a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
So tasty! This was my first chicken pot pie and I thought it was just great! I even messed up by adding the flour to after the chicken stock but it still worked out! I doubled up on my veggies and used fresh carrot, celery, and onion but I did use frozen peas. I also added a splash of white wine and doubled the sage, paprika and oregano. I usually try not to add any salt to my dishes so I used very little salt but mostly because I used a store bought rotiserrie chicken that was already seasoned. Overall, super easy and super tasty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This pot pie is DELISH! I made it tonight with modifications based on what I had on hand. I read the reviews and did 1 1/2 the spices for the chicken, added 1 T of flour, used 1/3 C. shallots instead of pearl onions, green beans instead of peas, 1 C. of carrots, and instead of chicken stock I used Veggie broth. I also put it in a glass baking dish so did the crust on the bottom, baking it a bit before pouring in everything. It is really amazing and I'm already looking forward to leftovers for lunch tomorrow!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Great recipe! Very easy and a great "make ahead" recipe. I made it in the morning and popped it in the oven when my company got here. It was perfect!

This was my first time making chicken pot pie and I am so glad I chose this recipe! I did add extra seasoning as the vegetable mixture was thickening- I also sauteed some potatoes and onions before adding the frozen vegetables, so that the filling was a bit more hardy. I would definitely let the vegetable mixture thicken for longer than 5 minutes, before adding the cream. I also transferred everything to a 9 inch glass pan before baking because I don't have a cast iron skillet. Such a comforting, convenient meal. Enjoy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great flavor! I ended up transferring the mix to a glass baking dish and used crescent roll dough for the top - turned out great! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was delicious!! So much better than what i envision "pot pie" to be. I added a little bit of white wine to the chicken broth since the can didn't quite make a full 2 cups. I also used regular onions instead of the frozen pearl onions. I will definitely make this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Definitely easy, especially as I used leftover chicken from a roast 2 nights before--I still used the spices from the recipe to flavor the sauce. I also added a tablespoon of butter and a large splash of white wine and simmered everything on the stovetop for 15 minutes then served my "creamy chicken stew" over biscuits that I baked since I forgot to buy a pie crust! It was delicious! The family raved about it, and I loved it, too! Quick, easy, warm and satisfying! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Can I say Yummy! This was tastebud and tummy good! It was so easy in prep, cooking and clean-up. I used milk instead of cream because it is what I had. It probably would of been thicker but it didn't change the yummy factor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
DELISH!!! Used left over turkey from Thanksgiving and was a HUGE hit with the hubby. Also, I diced up a potato and boiled until fork tender and added it, and used a regular yellow onion diced since that's what I had on hand. Best pot pie I've ever had! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Oops!! Quick update to my review. I just noticed that the recipe doesn't list a time to let the sauce thicken. So I revise my recommendation to, "Just be patient when waiting for the sauce to thicken. When you think it's there, let it go 5 more minutes. The results will be worth it!" item not reviewed by moderator and published
Super tasty and easy! What could be better? To make it even easier I used a rotisserie chicken and cubed it up. Highly recommended. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I read the reviews of this recipe & doubled the spices, substituting thyme for the sage. I also increased the flour & added a little more onions, peas & carrots. I think next time I will eliminate the spices completely & just salt & pepper the chicken before sauteing (sp) & then add the spices to the sauce before the chicken. I think fresh thyme would be good with the chicken. I would definitely make this again - I love chicken pot pie especially an easy one & this one sure fits the bill. item not reviewed by moderator and published

TASTY, TASTY, TASTY! This is really good. A big hit with family & friends. The ingredients are easy to keep in the freezer to be used on the spur. I prefer dark meat so I deboned thighs and really loaded up on the spices. Also thickened a bit more with cornstarch. Can't wait to pull this out on a rainy day. Thanks Sunny. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe! Made this last night while having the parents over for dinner, and they both loved it as well. Actually doubled the spice mix because there was not enough to cover the chicken strips I had. And next time I will add just a little bit more flour to help thicken up the slurry a bit. But other than that this was an easy Pot Pie to make and it tasted spectacular! Will make again for sure! Thanks Sunny! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Loved it. I didn't think there would be enough spices to cover all the chicken, but there was more than enough. Because the pie crust was at room temperature it broke it spots, but turned out very tasty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this last night for dinner. It was delicious. Love cooking in cast-iron! The only mistake I made was letting the pie crust come to room temperature which caused the dough to melt and lose its shape because the mixture is so hot. My husband is not crazy about chicken, but he loved this dish. Will definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
oh also i did 1 can of sliced mushrooms and only 1 package of chicken tenders which was only like 6 or 7 of them. 10 would be too much I think. and i didn't use pearl onions, i just chopped an onion and cooked it before adding the peas/carrots. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I agree on the changes. I, too am a chicken pot pie snub. I too like the pie crust top and bottom. I often wondered if I was the only one. Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
