Cooking for a Crowd: Chicken Pot Pie Recipe

Here’s a good recipe (Julie’s recipe) if you ever need to feed a large group of people.  One pan feeds around eight people, so multiply the ingredients by how many pans you think you need.  We were serving families at the Ronald McDonald House so our team made 10 pans.  We needed enough to feed around 75 people, so that gave us 80 adult-size servings.  I’ll give you quantities for a single pan & you can multiply by however many pans you need.  When making multiple pans, mix one pan at a time to ensure proper amount of ingredients in each pan..



  • 3 to 4 large chicken breasts, cooked & chopped
  • 2 bags frozen mixed vegetables, thawed & thoroughly drained
  • 2 cans of cream of celery soup
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth
  • ½ t pepper


  • 1 1/3 cup self rising flour
  • 1 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/3 cups melted butter

Mix pot pie ingredients & pour into 9 x13 pan.  Mix crust ingredients thoroughly & drop on top of chicken mixture by spoonfuls.  Gently spread to cover entire dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes until the crust is golden brown.  Let stand 10 minutes before serving.  Serve with salad.

.* Reminder:  When making multiple pans, mix one pan at a time to ensure proper amount of ingredients in each pan.

.Add fruit and desserts for a complete meal. We bought two large Artisan Fresh Lemon Crunch Bundt Cakes (50 oz. each) and two large Artisan Fresh Chocolate Bundt Cakes at Sam’s Club, along with a large package of frozen strawberries for our desserts.
Here’s a great meal with home cooked chicken pot pie, salad, strawberries, and delicious bakery cakes:

  1. I’m trying this tonight! I added some rosemary, thyme, chopped onions and mushrooms to the mixture! 🙂

  2. May I add my prayers for you on the sudden death of your husband. My heart aches for your loss & pain.

  3. What is the size of the bags of frozen vegetables? I only use canned mixed vegetables, so I need a better idea of size. Thanks!
