Honestly, anything that you want! If you want to add in mushrooms, sweet potatoes, and even some yummy red onions, make it happen. The whole point of a pot pie is to be hearty and delicious so it just makes sense to pack it full of amazing flavors and ingredients.
How do I know when the chicken pot pie is done cooking?
You’re going to have to pay attention to the crust on this one. Once it starts getting golden-brown, it’s time to pull it from the oven. You can tell visually that it’s ready that way.

Tips: I make the homemade crust in my food processor, that’s why the edges never look amazing! But, you can easily buy a pre-made pastry crust. Put aluminum foil under your pan in the oven. Mine always runs over!
