Freezer Meal Recipe – Chicken Pot Pie

March 20, 2012 by

I’m still adding to my freezer meals and thought I’d share another.  A friend gave me this recipe when we had a freezer meal night at her house.  Everyone loved it even with all those veggies inside!  Serve with a great salad and you have a filling meal with little clean up!  Make sure to note  that the cook time fresh and frozen are different.  When I made it a second time I had to call my friend to be sure it was right.

Chicken Pot Pie {makes 2}

  • 4 cups cooked chicken {or turkey}
  • 4 cups hash brown potatoes
  • 1 package mixed veggies
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can cream of onion soup
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 pie crusts

Combine all ingredients, except pie crusts, in a large bowl.  Divide between two (2) 9 inch pie plates.  Roll out 1 pre-made pie pastry to fit on top of each pie.

If baking immediately, cover and bake on a baking sheet at 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes removing foil during last 10 minutes to brown crust.

If freezing, cover with foil and place in a gallon size freezer bag.  To cook from frozen defrost overnight.  Cover edges with foil and place on baking sheet.  Bake at 425 for 30 minutes.  Reduce heat to 350.  Remove foil and bake 50-55 minutes longer  {I didn’t remove the foil until the last 10 minutes or so to keep the edges from burning}.

    Just checking…..Even after defrosting overnight, it still needs ~another hour than cooking it fresh?

    No bottom pastry? Just on top?


    • recipe says:

      Yes, that is how long I cooked mine and it was fine. I would certainly check it after an hour and see if it was ready. Mine was still a little frozen in the middle.

      Yes, crust just on top. My husband thought that was odd too, but it was delicious!

  2. Kathy says:

    How big is this pie? How many does it serve?

    • recipe says:

      Just a normal pie. I used a 9 inch round aluminum pan. We served 6 out of it, but could get 8 if you were serving little people because it is a very packed pie!

  3. Brenda says:

    This sounds great. Can’t wait to try. Do you need to cut slits in the top of the pie crust?

  4. Ashley says:

    Would you be able to bake the pie and then, after it cools, freeze it? If so would you be able to reheat directly from freezer, or would it still take thawing?

    Trying to make it super easy for families in need.

    Thanks, Ashley
