  • “This was sooo excellant!! I want to give it a 5 or more, but You left one step of the instructions out so I can only give you a four, perhaps you will correct it and I will change my review to a 5 which it deserves. Step 7 is to set aside the potatos/celery/broth mixture; and is never mentioned again, I know it needs to be added to the bowl with the other veggies and sauce, but someone else might not know. So now the real review … The flavours were wonderful ! but instead of boiling the chicken I cut into cubes and browned them in a frypan, to get nice brown bits and deglazed the pan with chicken stock in the same amount as if I had boiled it and used it the same as instructed for the potato/celery mix. Also added some black pepper with the poultry season to the white sauce. Other than that I followed the recipe.The biscuits were really wonderful, lovely crunchy on the outside and soft inside, delicious!! I will definately be making this again, the best ever pot pie, thanks for posting it!!!”

  • “Really amazing flavour!!However, it is very time-consuming & I think I dirtied every pot & bowl in my kitchen.And, I’m really glad I read the other review about adding back the potato mixture – I wasn’t sure if it needed to be drained or not so I ended up draining them.I also found that the biscuits were quite dense & didn’t rise to cover the whole chicken/veggie mixture.”
