If you’re looking for a fast and easy way to make yummy Chicken Pot Pie you are in the right place.  I recently started using Pacific Foods Organic Chicken Simply Stock in any of my recipes that calls for chicken broth.  Why?

I recently started to use cartons rather than cans..  If you have read one of my other posts you already know I’m excited to be sharing products packaged in Tetra Pak cartons with you.  If I can do my part to help make the world a cleaner and better place for us to enjoy while we are here, and eventually leave behind to our children, I am going to do what I can.

I recently started substituting Pacific Foods Organic Chicken Simply Stock or the traditional canned chicken broth, and I have been pleasantly surprised with the results.  Not only am I helping do my part, these cartons have several other great benefits, such as:

  • 70% Paper
  • Renewable Resource
  • Harvested from regrown trees
  • 1/3 less than cans.
  • Space savers
  • Look nice
  • Unique packaging process helps to preserver that flavor & nutrients without all those preservatives.
  • And more, learn more, and Be Carton Smart

I have already substituted Pacific Foods Organic Chicken Simply Stock in my chicken noodles soup, and I recently decided to give it a whirl in my super-duper easy chicken pot pie recipe, and it turned out fabulous!  If you love chicken pot pie here is a recipe worth trying.

I have to try it. I love that their unique packaging process helps to preserver that flavor & nutrients without all those preservatives. Thank you for your review and sharing your recipe.

I think I'm going to try out their pumpkin puree the next time I make a pumpkin pie!

Wow so glad you did the homework for me. I have often wondered about using the carton version of items. I am so not used to all this new stuff. I normally send the hubby to kfc if the have the chicken pot pies but, if I win a new appliance no matter what it is my very first meal will be using your recipes from above. I have been eating chicken and turkey pot pies for over 40 years now but they weren't the healthy ones I'm sure. Thanks

thank u I cant wait to make this I appreciate all your hard work

I had never heard of being carton smart!! Thanks for teaching me another way to do our part and much easier to recycle. Can tetra paks be put in the normal cardboard recycling?
Deborah D January 9, 2014 - 9:21 am
This looks so good!!! I am going to make this!!! I agree with you about recycling and leaving the world a healthier place for the next generation.

So weird - I jut picked up some Pacific broths at my grocery store yesterday. I LOVE them, not only what is inside but the packaging - so much better in so many ways than cans. I didn't know they have other products, though - I'll have to look for them.
lisa January 9, 2014 - 11:37 am
I prefer cartons over cans myself. We have been recycling for years. Even down to the paper towel roll.
rebeka deleon January 9, 2014 - 1:26 pm
I have always wanted to make chicken pot pie! we haven't even eaten the frozen ones in so long but I bet fresh is so much better! We always have so much chicken.
M.Clark January 9, 2014 - 8:03 pm
The cartons that Pacific Foods use to package their products are better for the environment than cans. Yet another reason to switch to Pacific Foods. Thank you!!
Shannon January 9, 2014 - 9:24 pm
This sounds really good and you are right, food from a carton always tastes better than out of a can..thanks for posting!!!
ANN*H January 9, 2014 - 11:09 pm
We love chicken pot pie at our house and this recipe sounds so simple and easy. I will make them here at home. Much cheaper than buying the expensive ones from the store. thanks for the recipe -but you didnt tell when to put in the veggies in
Stephen January 10, 2014 - 5:19 am
I like the recipe and my wife loves pot pies. So I sent it to her!
neenz87 January 10, 2014 - 6:22 am
You know, chicken stock is not available in my country!. It comes in cubes but not in tetra pack..
Mary Rogers January 10, 2014 - 10:16 am
I make a similar recipe but I just use the pillsbury pie shells instead of doing it with the biscuit mix. is theere a certain brand you use?
Sally January 10, 2014 - 5:05 pm
This sounds really quick,easy and tasty! I like the whole idea of using cartons it's awesome to use the least amount possible! Thanks Jenn!!

I'm all for not buying things in cans, or plastic for that matter. And I want to preserve flavor & nutrients without all the preservatives. So thank you for the information about Pacific Organic packaging.
sandy weinstein January 11, 2014 - 5:51 pm

I have never used the cartons I always freeze my broth from cooking a chickden on the rotisery or bowling chicken BUT I think I should try the carton
Carol S. January 13, 2014 - 1:23 pm
Ooh interesting. Wish you had a picture of what the dish looks like after cooking. Recipes are always great along with visuals :)
Shelly Johnson January 14, 2014 - 9:09 am
We tried a chicken pot pie recipe a few weeks ago and it was great except my kids weren't fans of the frozen veggies. It gave it a weird taste. I'm thinking about trying out some fresh steamed veggies next time. Worried they might get mushy, so I'll have to play around with it a bit, but I'm going to do this one instead.
Jo-Ann Brightman January 14, 2014 - 10:07 am
I have tried to use more cartons lately in order to be more ecofriendly. I have found that the ingredients taste better , but I don;t know if it is the company or the packaging, perhaps a combination of both. I like easy pot pie recipes like this one.
Kendra C January 14, 2014 - 10:19 am
Thanks for the review and the recipe! I will definitely have to try it. I've always used pie crusts for our Chicken Pot Pies and I'm intrigued to try one made w/ bisquick. I also am intrigued to research more on cartons vs cans. I'm ashamed to admit I'm not too informed on these issues/movements and need to research more.
lisa January 14, 2014 - 11:24 am
I have never tried a home cooked pot pie. All I've had are those frozen boxed things that taste like cardboard.
stephanie January 14, 2014 - 12:59 pm
You have my mouth watering! I never have tried making chicken pot pie as I always thought it was harder than that to make! Now I think I know what I'm going to try and do later this week!
Lisa R January 14, 2014 - 4:37 pm

I love Chicken Pot Pie and always use organic chicken broth, but haven't tried this brand before. I will be looking for it on my grocer's shelves.
Jeri Accardo January 18, 2014 - 11:42 am
i like the cartons a lot better, i think you can actually taste the can on canned goods!!
Chrissy Dear January 18, 2014 - 10:40 pm

tamra64 January 19, 2014 - 7:58 pm
Girl Every time I read this I am dying for a Chicken Pot Pie from KFC. I would love to try the recipe above when I have all the stuff I need. Seems to me you are an awesome cook and I believe you really do make all these recipes. It's a shame you couldn't have a menu on your blog and I could place an order with you and maybe #WhirlpoolUsa could find a way to get it to me-lol
T.E. Lawrence January 20, 2014 - 2:54 am

Angela January 21, 2014 - 12:32 pm
What a good idea for another small way we can be a little greener. Switching from cans to cartons is a small thing, easily done that can have a big impact. Who would've thought. And thanks for the chicken pot pie recipe.. can't wait to try this.
Jody Arbogast January 22, 2014 - 4:11 pm
I love this recipe. I have my own and it's a can of Dinty more Beef Stew and a pie crust...lol
Sandra Crispo January 23, 2014 - 1:02 am
My husband loves chicken pot pies and even though, as all the kids are gone, and I do not cook as much as I used to might try this and helping the environment is always a good idea, thanks!
cats_2_catsjl January 24, 2014 - 12:36 pm

Chicken Pot Pie has always been my favorite.
Sandra Beeman January 27, 2014 - 2:05 pm
I very much like the idea of using Pacific Chicken Broth in a carton. I'm not sure we have this here in the northeast. I love chicken soup but what really caught my ete was the pumpkin carton.
thomas ticknor January 28, 2014 - 7:57 pm
Loving all the carton smart recipes, especially this one. I just love chicken pot pies.
lisa January 29, 2014 - 12:09 pm

This sound super easy and yummy - just my kind of recipe!
melisa January 30, 2014 - 1:38 am
We actually tried this, the change from the leading brand of non-organic stock to the organic is a little different at first, but you quickly get used to it.
Chrystal Thurston January 31, 2014 - 8:52 am
This one sounds great, I love trying new recipes! I made one pot pie recipe using refrigerated pie crust would that be ok?
M.Clark February 15, 2014 - 9:06 pm
Chicken pot pie is a great comfort food, I enjoy the chicken pot pie that KFC makes.
lisa February 26, 2014 - 5:38 pm
I like chicken and dumplings. My husband made a home made pot pie. It was okay but a bit heavy. These are great products and work well in any dish.
lisa April 2, 2014 - 11:09 am
I've tried this brand to make chicken and dumplings. It has a good flavor.
BILL HOFF June 10, 2015 - 11:16 pm
We are always looking for different ways to prepare chicken!
Heather Pfingsten June 11, 2015 - 12:37 am
I need to work on a roundup of chicken recipes. My freezer is stuffed full of chicken and I am always looking for new ways to prepare it too!
Linda Manns Linneman July 19, 2015 - 8:45 am
