Vegetarian Chicken Pot Pies

Vegetarian Chicken Pot Pies

As days get colder and colder here in Minnesota I was thinking about the ultimate comfort food recipe that everyone loves.. How about some chicken pot pies? 😉

I make mine vegetarian, which means just replacing the real chicken in the recipe with a fake chicken meat (soy chicken). It tastes very good, and I don’t know if it’s just me but after eating it for years I think it tastes very similar to real chicken meat. If you’ve never tried it, do it in this recipe. You won’t even notice the difference.

This is not the healthiest recipe I have, because I do add a bit of flour and butter to make the mixture thicker and tastier. If you can think of how to substitute that for something else (better and healthier) please let me know – I’d love to hear from you! You can comment at the bottom of the page under the recipe card. But I figured, if you have this not very often it’s okay, it’s not like you’re eating it every day 😉 Although, with how tasty it is.. that might be changing..

Here are a few pictures that I thought would be helpful to see of the stages of preparation and cooking:
