Tuesday night we tried our first freezer meal, freezer chicken pot pie. When I put this meal together, I wanted to try it right away. It took a long time to assemble these pies, about an hour and a half or two hours, but the time was well worth it. This was a huge hearty meal, which was nice in between meals of hot dogs and deli sandwiches. I cut the pie into six servings, which gave us leftovers to eat for lunch the next day.
Of course my pie doesn’t look as pretty as the one in the recipe picture. But its good. What wouldn’t be good about it? Its chicken, potatoes and vegetables in a pie. The recipe made two pies, but if I’d had enough crusts, I could have divided the filling into three pies. This isn’t a recipe that I would have normally made just because of how long it took to put together. But I can see myself making this again, maybe even making a double batch to yield four or six pies.
Even though this was put in the freezer ready to cook, it did take a little planning to bake because the total bake time for a frozen pie is almost two hours.
