Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Pot Pie: Flaky crust filled with hearty chicken and cheesy and creamy broccoli. It’s the perfect mix!
This pie is a little far from the traditional pie. There aren’t many ingredients, but they combine so wonderfully to create a pot pie that is flaky, cheesy, creamy, and oh-so-delicious. This recipe is awesome to use up any leftovers. I made this a few times using leftover chicken and pie crust. And it’s amazing and doesn’t take too much time to make.
It may seem odd to combine a flaky pie crust with robust chicken and a creamy, cheesy broccoli filling, but it works! It’s like your favorite soup and your favorite comfort food just had a baby, and it’s going to blow you away!

Step 8: Brush the top crust with the egg wash.

Set the oven to 350 degrees F and coat a 9-inch pie dish with butter or non-stick spray. Then, line the pie dish with one of the pie crusts.
