Chicken Pot Pie is quite possibly one of the best comfort foods ever.
As a kid, one of my favorite dinners was chicken pot pie. Let's be honest, it still is to this day. But my favorite one as a kid was the individual frozen chicken pot pie. I loved that the whole pie was just for me, and that buttery flaky crust... yummmm...
Then again, those things don't offer much other than tasting good and being easy. The sodium in those things is out of control!
And I'm not usually one that pays too much attention to that but like whoa there's a lotta sodium in those babies. Plus, a lot of weird ingredients I'm not dying to put in my body erryday

So I was super excited to create a recipe for an easy chicken pot pie that both tastes good and doesn't have a bunch of junky ingredients.
To save time and effort, I used the Progresso Reduced Sodium Savory Chicken and Wild Rice Soup. I love that it has real ingredients like white meat chicken with no added antibiotics (ever!).
Plus, it's convenience in a can. I always have at least 5 cans of Progresso soup in my pantry because there are tons of options, and they're perfect for those days that I have no energy to cook.
But back to this tasty chicken pot pie...
You only need five ingredients (unless you want to add a few spices to jazz it up a little bit more) and takes minutes to prepare thanks to the help of that canned soup. To thicken the soup for a more authentic chicken pot pie interior, I added a little cornstarch. Then I covered it in an almond flour crust for some extra protein.
You can use two small ramekins or one larger one. This recipe serves two, so just decide if you are ok with sharing or if it's better to have your own pie 🙂
When you realize how easy this is to make and that you can have a comforting chicken pot pie with just a teeny tiny amount of effort and no weird ingredients, you might start stocking up on this soup like I do.
