Cheesy Chicken and Sausage Pot Pie

Do you have a food that brings back memories of your childhood? For me, that food is chicken pot pies! Well, that and Oreos! However, that’s a story for another time! Maybe I’ll tell that story the next time I make Oreo Cheesecake.

OK, where was I? Oh yea, pot pies! When I was about 5, I was eating lunch at my grandmother’s house. My mom and her had made pot pies in the oven, and they were cooling on the counter. I was hungry and, just like any other child, impatient. I was told multiple times not to touch the pot pies. Did I listen? No, I did not. That impatient move resulted in a burn on my right thumb. Twenty-five years later, I still wear that battle scar. It’s a nice reminder of patience whenever I eat or make a pot pie.

Ingredients for cheesy chicken and sausage pot pie.

Here are the ingredients you will need: 

  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 2 diced jalapenos
  • 1 15 oz can of diced potatoes, drained
  • 1 ½ cups of cooked chicken chopped/shredded  (I used smoked chicken my husband had grilled)
  • ½ lb cooked Opa’s Chicken Smoked Sausage (or your favorite smoked sausage)
  • 1 tablespoon of Slap Ya Mama seasoning.
  • 1 10.5 oz Cream of Chicken soup
  • 1 10.5 oz Cream of Potato soup
  • 1 cup of Chicken Broth
  • 1  15.25 oz can of corn-Drained
  • 1 14.5 oz can of green beans-drained
  • 1 bag of Borden Shredded Mexican Cheese (8 oz.)
  • 2 Pillsbury premade pie crusts
  • 1  15.25 oz can of corn-Drained
  • 1 14.5 oz can of green beans-drained
  • 1 bag of Borden Shredded Mexican Cheese (8 oz.)
  • 2 Pillsbury premade pie crusts

Instructions: 

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350°F. 
  2. In a large skillet, saute diced onion, jalapeno, and can of potatoes in a tablespoon of olive oil.
  3. Add in the chicken and sausage and mix together. Sprinkle with ‘Slap Ya Mama. Cook for about 3 minutes, blending. 
  4. Stir in the can of cream of chicken and cream of potato and stir it in. Add in a cup of chicken broth. If you prefer a creamier gravy in your pot pie, add an additional 12 cup broth.
  5. Add in the green beans, corn, and cheese. Stir it together. Let the mixture simmer for a few minutes until it starts to thicken. 
  6. In a deep dish pie pan or cast iron, roll out one of the pie crusts into the bottom of the pan. Fill the pie crust halfway with the mixture. Make sure to spread it evenly. Cover the mixture with the additional pie crust. 
  7. Cut a slit into the top of the pie crust. This allows air to escape. Trust me, don’t skip this step. It ensures the pie cooks evenly. 
  8. Bake for 45 minutes at 350°F until the pie is golden brown. 
  9. Let it cool for 10 minutes and serve. 

NOTES: 

VARIATIONS: There are many variations you can try to make this pot pie your own. Let me know your favorite variations in the comments below. Here are the few that we have seen. 

  • Try it with different frozen mixed vegetables or canned mixed vegetables.
  • Substitute cream of chicken soup or cream of mushroom soup for the cream of celery soup.
  • If you don’t have chicken broth, use water or dissolve a chicken bouillon cube in a cup of boiling water. Adjust the salt, as necessary.
  • Use leftover ham, turkey or beef

Do I have to use any specific chicken? No, you can use any variation that you want. I’ve used smoked chicken thighs or breasts. It can also be done with shredded rotisserie chicken. 

Can I cook the Cheesy Chicken Sausage Pot Pie ahead of time? 

Yes. If you’re planning to bake the pie later that same day, cover the prepared pie in foil or plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator. Take the pie out of the refrigerator while the oven is preheating, and bake as normal. You can also prepare the filling ahead of time and assemble the pot pie just before baking. You may need to add a few minutes to the baking time to ensure it’s heated through.
