Homemade Chicken Pot Pies

I have been wanting to make homemade chicken pot pies for a long time so I finally decided to try it and I am so glad I did. They turned out A*M*A*Z*I*N*G. My husband said the best pot pie he's ever had. 
So I used this pie crust recipe. I doubled it and was perfect for 6 mini pot pies. I always use this recipe it is wonderful every time. It has never let me down. Now I store my shortening in the freezer. It works great!
I used this pot pie recipe but I made a few modifications. I added one package of mushrooms and 4 peeled chopped potatoes. I also substituted cream for milk and I added a pat of butter to each pie before I put on the top crust. I must admit I did cheat a little tiny bit. I used a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store instead of cooking my own. The meat from one whole chicken was the perfect amount. I like to pick the chicken instead of cube it. I really think there's nothing worse than a cold, sterile piece of cubed chicken. It's so much nicer when it's a nice soft morsel. This recipe made 6 mini pot pies and was perfect! I'm so glad I finally decided to make this. It will definitely be a favorite in this house from now on. Happy Cooking Lovelies!!

I too LOVE chicken pot pie - but even more, I love the way you put these together. I've never done them as small pies and am thinking they would be wonderful over the Christmas season.
Your pastry looks beautiful.

Hi Hanna! Thanks so much for visiting me, your sweet comment and following me! : ) I have to tell you that chicken pot pie was my most favorite Winter food to eat before I had to go gluten free three years ago! It is missing out on this type of food that I loved that is so devastating to me about my celiac disease. This looks so good and, if I was any kind of cook, I would try to make my own with gluten free flour. Meanwhile, I enjoy looking at the pictures and remembering how good it was! :)
