So with this new theme in my life, I got a wild hair to try chicken pot pie. I'm embarrassed to admit that I have never even tried it myself let alone baked one! Sad isn't it. I didn't know what I was missing. But, like always, I couldn't just follow the recipe. I had some cream cheese that I got on sale and it was just begging me to use it up, so I googled it. I found a couple that included it but I also had some other things that were left over from meals earlier in the week, like the rice and broccoli. So of course I add them. I have adjusted the recipes I found to include these things and to our tastes. You are more than welcome to do the same, substitute ingredients as wanted/needed.
8 oz. cream cheese, cubed
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 lb chicken breast, cubed or shredded
1 can mixed veggies
1 cup frozen broccoli
1 1/2 cups cooked rice
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 package refridgerated pie dough (I used Pillsbury)
1 egg, beaten (reserve for brushing top dough)
Melt cream cheese with the chicken broth, garlic, and pepper in sauce pan on medium heat until well combined. Add other ingredients to pan, mix well (if mixture is a little too thick add more chicken broth.
