This recipe is one of my favorite dishes…ever. The original recipe calls for an entire stick of butter and doesn’t include any vegetables, which I just cannot do–so I modified the original to make it somewhat healthier. I must say I prefer the original with loads of butter and sans veggies, but this version comes in a close second.If you want to try the full version: use 1 stick of melted butter in the batter rather than using the chicken broth in it. Also no need for the veggies in the original chicken pie–just serve along with your veggies as a side dish.

Momma’s Chicken Pie

Meat from one cooked chicken pulled and chopped (about 4 cups)

1/2 cup each of frozen corn, peas, green beans

salt & pepper to taste

1 10.5 oz can cream of mushroom soup

1/2 stick melted butter (unsalted)

~1 cup chicken broth

1 cup self rising flour

3/4 cup milk

  Instructions: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken (and thawed veggies if using) in large ungreased baking dish or casserole dish. Mix veggies and chicken around to distribute evenly in the dish. Slowly pour chicken broth on top of chicken (& veggies) until you can just see it–do not pour so much that the chicken is fully submerged. This provides a little moisture as the pie cooks–if using veggies do not use the full cup of broth because they will add moisture as they cook as well. Spread on cream of mushroom soup on the top, sprinkle salt and pepper to taste. In  a separate bowl, mix together self rising flour, butter, and milk (using the lightened up version–add chicken broth until the mixture barely pours, like a thick pancake batter). Pour the batter on top of the soup layer, spread gently if needed to distribute evenly over the top of the chicken pie.

So good....even better the next day reheated!

Cook at 350 for 40-45 minutes–the top crust will be light brown and firm to the touch with the sides gently bubbling with goodness!

Let chicken pie cool for 5-10 minutes; this will allow the soup/broth mixture to thicken a bit. If you can’t wait (like I usually cannot) the first serving will be a bit runny 🙂 but don’t worry, as the chicken pie cools a bit it will thicken up. Enjoy!
