The ingredient list;

  • Russet Potatoes
  • Cooked Chicken (rotisserie chicken or leftovers works well for this recipe)
  • Frozen Peas and Carrots (frozen and thawed)
  • Butter
  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Chicken Broth or Stock
  • Dried Sage
  • Dried Rosemary
  • Vinegar (just a touch)

Why this easy dinner recipe works?

Since I know that everyone is super busy and that trying to figure out what to make for dinner can sometimes be a stressful situation, especially when the time is limited.

By taking advantage of leftover cooked chicken, or store-bought rotisserie chicken, this chicken comfort food is super easy, and extra quick, so even a novice cook can have this delicious meal on the dinner table in 15 minutes or less.

  1. This dish is so cool. Taking a good dish and upping it to something better.

  2. What an absolutely genius idea! Perfect for those cold winter nights where comfort food is needed!

    • Thanks for the comment, Crystal. However, spring and summer months can sometimes call for comfort food too. I made these on a hot day, and since they only take 15 minutes the kitchen was still cool, and so was I.

  3. As it happens, I was planning on doing something with chicken and potatoes for supper, tonight. I think I’ll make this! I’ll have to cook my chicken first, but since it’s boneless, skinless breasts, it shouldn’t take much extra time at all. Thanks, Renée!

  4. Such a comforting looking dish! I love the way you put it over potatoes!

  5. Bill is a HUGE chicken pot pie fan! I must make these—so much easier than dealing with pie crust in the summer!! The whole family will love this!

  6. I love this idea! Especially with the more filling / nutrient-dense potato instead of pie crust. YAY!!!

  7. This is such a great idea! I never thought of this before.

  11. What a fabulous idea…I love this even more than the original!

  12. What a great quick and easy dinner idea, and how comforting! I love it!

  13. I love this so much! we use to have stuffed potatoes at a restaurant that I use to work at and I love them. We would devour these! Chicken pot pies bring back such great memories for me.

  14. This is a genius idea! My husband loves chicken pot pie so I know he’s gonna love this!
