Can I Use Fresh Vegetables In Pot Pie
Absolutely. I reached for frozen veggies as they are frozen at their peak. But if you have some fresh vegetables you want to use go for it. For green beans, I would steam them for a bit to help with the cooking process. That way when you slice and serve you have tender green beans waiting for you along with other veggies.
What Sides Go With Chicken Pot Pie
- Chopped salad or tossed salad
- Fruit salad
- Steamed vegetables or roasted

What If I Don’t Have A Cast Iron Skillet
If you don’t have a skillet feel free to use a pie pan to bake your pot pie. Or even use another shaped pan if you prefer. This recipe doesn’t have to be cooked in a skillet then baked. You can always transfer to a baking dish.
How to Store Leftover Pot Pie
Place leftover pot pie in the fridge for up to three days. You will want to cover your chicken pot pie with a lid or even aluminum foil to protect it.
Then reheat as you would like in microwave or oven. If you heat up in the over cover the pan with aluminum foil to prevent it from drying out as if reheats.
