About This Recipe

If you love chicken pot pie, but wish it had more crust, this is the recipe for you! Some cheesy crumbles are baked until they are almost crisp, then are used to top a fabulously creamy and mustardy mixture of chicken, onions, carrots, mushrooms, bell peppers. This hearty casserole serves a bunch, and it’s not that hard to make. It’s the perfect main dish for weekend cooking.

You can use any of your favorite veggies in this recipe. Use frozen corn instead of the peas. Use sliced zucchini or yellow summer squash in place of the mushrooms. You can even leave out some veggies, omit the mustard, or use different kinds of cheese.

Serve this hearty and warming casserole with a green salad dressed with a vinaigrette, and some iced tea or white wine. You don’t need anything else – except perhaps some bar cookies for dessert.

Pour the chicken mixture into a 13" x 9" glass baking dish. Put the baking dish on a cookie sheet so when it bakes, if anything spills over, you won't have a mess in your oven.
