Recipe Challenge: Karen's week

I picked the Deep Dish Chicken Pot Pie. I also used Mandy's easy pie crust recipe because I didn't want to buy a pie crust. I think it would be much better for a true pie...and maybe not a top. It was good but didn't hold a shape to put on top=p
The pot pie wasn't bad...don't think I'd make it again though. Someday I will find a pot pie recipe we all love...if anyone has one similar to the cheapy pp's you get in the frozen food aisle please do share!

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces
1/4 cup ITALIAN Dressing
125 g (½ of 250 - g pkg) Philadelphia Brick Cream Cheese, cubed
½ cup chicken broth
3 cups frozen mixed veggies, thawed, drained
1 frozen deep dish pie crust, thawed
preheat oven to 375F.Cook chicken in dressing in large skillet on medium heat2 min. Add cream cheese, cook and stir until melted. Add broth and vegetables; simmer 5 min.
Pour mixture into deep dish 8 or 9 inch pie plate. Invert pie crust over filling, crimp edges. Cut 4 slits in crust to allow steam to escape.
Bake 30 min or until crust is golden brown. Makes 6 servings

I'm not sure if you'd like this one either, but I make a really quick and easy pot pie with leftover chicken or turkey. You take about a cup of frozen Mixed Veggies (corn, carrots, green beans, peas) A can of Cream of Chicken Soup, some of the chicken or turkey (I just throw whatever amount looks good in), a few Tbs. of milk, and salt and pepper. I'd need to look up the cooking time/temp though. (350 for 45 or 1 hr I'm guessing) But it's really easy and there's never any leftovers here! :)

Hmmm... The crust didn't work out well huh? I always just buy the ones in the cold case at Wal-Mart, I'm lazy I guess and not much of a baker... I have one pot pie recipe that I got from a website called and this one is delicious!!! We love it!! It has lots of seasonings, so as long as your family doesn't mind the seasonings I bet they will love it!!! You use biscuits as your crust though.. LOL!!

I'll go post it on my blog for you now so you can check it out!
