Chicken Pot Pie Ingredients
When it comes to the ingredients, here are the basics:
- Chicken—Rotisserie chickens are always handy for recipes, but there are many other precooked chicken products sold both in the frozen and fresh meat sections. If you are trying to economize, cook some chicken over the weekend and stick in the refrigerator or freezer. Then it's ready when you are.
- Vegetables—The produce, freezer, and canned food sections of the grocery store offer a wonderful variety of vegetables ready to add to your pot pie filling—from frozen, chopped onions to canned peas.
- Filling—For a creamy filling, ingredients such as condensed soups have been the traditional choice. But there are other options you can use, such as refrigerated and canned sauces or even sauce mixes.
- Crust—Take the fuss out of preparing the crust by using a convenient Martha White biscuit mix or self-rising flour.
