    Great recipe, I added shredded cheese to the mix

    It was delicious. I added some Potatoes and Broccoli. I had to move to middle rack and cook about 10 more minutes to help brown the top of the Crust. It took quite a bit of time to make, so I'm not sure if I would make it again.

    Delicious! We are really enjoying this one. It took a long time to make. A lot of love went into it. We used Quorn instead of chicken to make it vegetarian and used veggie broth insead of chicken broth. 5 stars!

    My pie turned out great! I used a deep dish pie crust and a refrigerated pie crust to go on top. Both store-bought. I took my pie out about 5 minutes earlier than the recipe said because it was getting pretty crispy. Also, I used frozen peas, carrots, and corn as my veggies!

    I cooked my own chicken breast in the crockpot. The filling flavor wasnt wow-worthy- just good. Also do not cook the bottom pie crust for recommended time- maybe 10 min. (I used a store bought pilsbury crust)

    I made this last night. My husband was so delighted, he posted a photo on Facebook and got, as of right now, 119 likes or wows or hearts and maybe 50 comments. Substituted a thawed bag of mixed vegetables of carrots, corn and asparagus.

    Cover leftovers and store at room temperature for 3 days? Are you serious??
    im disappointed that the recipe lacked info... didn't say 2 pie shells in ingredients list. Nor did it say egg and water. how much water? so far.. that's a bummer.

    It was good. Spices were not quite enough for me. I will make it again and tweak a bit. Good recipe.

    This was easily the best CPP I’ve ever tasted! I had a leftover pie dough that I used in the pie dish with a store bought dough on top Also added about 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese before closing up the pie and baking Absolutely delicious!

    Super! I made extra (double) filling but then realized that I didn't have enough pie crust to make two pies so I made the extra into a casserole with almost like a pancake patter on the top. I then put that into the oven and cooked it with the other pie and it turned out amazing!
