We love chicken pot pies, but preparing them can take hours. For a streamlined Chicken Pot Pie recipe that we could freeze and pull out whenever we craved comfort food, we made a crust by “gluing" two pieces of store-bought dough together to make a double-thick crust. (Making a homemade pie crust seemed like too much work for our simplified Freezer Chicken Pot Pies recipe.) And instead of poaching or roasting a whole chicken, we browned boneless chicken breasts and then simmered them in chicken stock. This produced nice, rich chicken flavor in much less time.
