Lindi's Chicken Pot Pie

I had this over at my girlfriend, Lindi's house one night and fell in love. I don't know why. Maybe it's because the only other Pot Pie that I've ever had is the frozen ones brought home from the supermarket. Although this recipe isn't all that different (in terms of difficulty to make), it tastes so much better!

Let me assure readers that this is not gourmet by any means....this is filed in the, "Down home comfort food" section.

Lindi also suggested microwaving some diced potatoes and putting them in there for a bit more bulk. A really cute touch is cutting some of the extra crust with cookie cutters and putting cute shapes on top of the pie. Most likely this can also be done with leftover Turkey. So, file this away for next Thanksgiving.

I completely copied and pasted this from her email so, ENJOY! I've made it twice in the 3 weeks that I've had it.

Lindi's Chicken Pot Pie

1can cream of Chicken soup
1 medium onion,chopped and sauted (optional)
1-2 chicken breast, cooked and chopped
10 oz bag of frozen peas and carrots
1 tsp salt (I usually add a little more, but I like it salty)
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp thyme

2 premade pie-crust, or you can make your own, but I've never done that before :)

Mix everything together. Put into bottom pie crust. Seal 2nd crust on top of that and made lots of little slits. Bake at 400 for 30-40 minutes or until gloden brown. I f youwant it even heartier, add corn and/or potatoes(I'd cook them a little first though or chop them pretty small so that they cook all the way). This is one of those meals that is really yummy even as a leftover, if you dont eat it all the first night that is! Enjoy!
