I like to make chicken pot pie from scratch, but don't always have the time. The following recipe is what I do when I'm short on time.
In 1 Tbsp. oil or butter, saute' onion and chicken until onion is clear and soft. This gives the chicken a little extra flavor. When this is done, I usually just fix the gravy mix right there in the same pan with the chicken and onion. You want the gravy a little thicker than normal, but not too thick. Stir in the drained veggies. Pour this filling into one of the pie shells and use the other one for the top. I like to bake this at 350 degrees F for about 30 minutes so that the crust is golden brown. Take it out of the oven and let it set for about 15 minutes before cutting. Not quite as good as from scratch, but we never have left-overs and it only takes a few minutes prep time.
