Good recipe, tweaked a little to make it great

It was a great recipe for a lower calorie classic chicken potpie...I tweaked it a little-more salt and pepper, fillo on top and bottom, used on 9x13 baking dish. Next time I'll take another reviewers advice and use cream of chicken soup and less cornstarch. Otherwise, a great recipe for the healthy eater who likes comfort food too :)

Healthier alternative, easy, warm and comforting

This is Okay, I made it GREAT!!!!!!

The first time I made this I followed everything to the letter of the recipe. It was very bland, and I was surprised my family said that they liked it, I am thinking maybe they lied. The second time I made it I prepared the sheets of dough like instructed, but I made double. I then used a pizza cutter to cut around one of my serving dishes (as a pattern) so that I could fit the dough on top perfectly, with nothing hanging over and no huge pile of dough on top. I also made dough for the bottom of the pans the same way. (using the dish as a guide.) I added one can of 98% fat free cream of chicken soup. I did everything else as instructed, it turned out amazing. The soup gave it the last bit of flavor I was looking for. It was still healthy as it was 98% fat free. :D:D I will make this again! (my way)

Easy to make, individual servings.

surprisingly a hit

it was really tasty, we actually just made one big pot pie instead of a small one. it was a great hit, i was a little worried cause i've had a hard time with some of these recipes people don't normally like them so i've been away from the site. but i gave it another try and i'm glad i did this one. there was none left at the end of the night! everyone should try.

easy and fast to make

Easy...even for the cooking challenged!

I've loved pot pies since I was a little girl and this recipe took me back to that happy place!! I used low fat Pillsbury croissant dough instead of the Phyllo, but followed the recipe otherwise and it was GREAT. The filling was delish! This is definitely going to be a go to comfort dish going fwd!

Easy prep

I made a smaller portion of

I made a smaller portion of this, used cream of chicken soup and since I don't like thyme, I used oregano and a little basil. It was great and I also used frozen flaky pastry. Since I am a widow, I make things in either smaller quantities or make a large batch of something and put it in individual serving size containers for freezing. I find this really great when I don't feel like cooking and it really helps when I am tired. I will probably freeze the stew and then add the pastry when I thaw it to use.
Looking forward to making a large batch.
