Didn't follow the exact recipe because I had leftovers to use up... but it was wonderful. Changes I made: Used leftover roast chicken, leftover boiled potatoes, can of carrots, fresh portabello mushrooms (chopped), 1 tablespoon of Italian Seasoning, 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, leftover chicken gravy (instead of cream of chicken soup). Also on top I used crushed Ritz crackers dabbed with butter. Kids and hubby loved it! One suggestion is to cook for 45 minutes at 350 or for 30-40 @ 375 degrees. Thanks for sharing the recipe!


I loved this recipe! The change I made was not to use saltines but a refrigerated pie crust. This pot pie works with chicken equally as well as with turkey. My entire family loved it (which doesn't happen often) and it will become a regular at our house.


Not a very good recipe. Too much of a kid's meal. A lot like a pot pie, but with silly saltine crackers. Will work better by simply excluding the crackers. Bread crumbs may work well, but this recipe begs for a pie crust.
