One of my most used favorites for adding flavor to savory dishes is Maille Dijon Originale Mustard. A creamy, robust dijon that enhances your dishes from soups and stews to appetizers and marinades.
When added to simple ingredients, Maille Dijon Originale Mustard takes your meal from not bad to moreish and amazing!
Just as with any regional cuisine, there is always going to be a long list of variations of one recipe. This time I’ve taken a southern favorite from my neck of the woods here in Georgia, and amped it up with the addition of Dijon, and voila, my variation is a family favorite!
Chicken pot pie is a classic, and here in the south, it’s more of a staple meal.
Typically though, chicken pot pie recipes can take a lengthy list and is more of a weekend meal, but with my recipe hacks, all you need is 5 easy to find ingredients to whip up a southern classic recipe.
Don’t be shy about sticking to the ingredients listed, feel free to make this your own by the addition of your favorite vegetables. Want it creamy? No problem. You can easily substitute the broth for the cream of mushroom, chicken, or asparagus soup and a splash of milk, or just add in a splash to the broth for a light creamy sauce.
If you open up my pantry, amongst the many spices and staple ingredients, sits my go-to favorite, Maille Dijon Originale Mustard. You can easily spruce up any dish with a simple dollop or two, making all the difference from boring to yum.

Make This 5 Ingredient Southern Chicken Pot Pie:
- 3 - 4 cups (1 whole chicken) rotisserie chicken
- 1 - 16 ounce frozen mixed vegetables
- 2 teaspoons Maille Dijon Originale Mustard
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 pie pastry sheet
- Preheat the oven to 375°F.
- Shred the whole rotisserie chicken, about 3 cups depending on the size of the bird.
- In a large bowl, mix together the shredded chicken, frozen mixed vegetables, Maille Dijon Originale Mustard, and chicken broth. Set aside.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry sheet to be about 1 inch larger than the skillet or pie dish you're baking in.
- Put the chicken mixture into the skillet(s) or pie dish that you're baking in, top with the pastry sheet, tucking the pastry into the edges, and crimp the edges to seal, and brush with an egg wash (1 egg whisked with a splash of water). Cut a few slits into the top of the pastry.
- Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 - 30 minutes or until the pastry is just golden (ovens vary, so start checking at 20 minutes and add 5 minutes at a time until the desired doneness is reached).
- Carefully remove from oven and serve.
You can substitute the pie pastry with puff pastry if desired, simply roll out and bake per the instructions above.
You can use any mixed vegetables you'd like, frozen or fresh. The amount diced should equal about 2 cups.
You can make 1 large 8 - 9-inch dish or make the pot pies personal size. With this recipe, I was able to make 2 - 6 1/2-inch personal pot pies, plus 1 large 9-inch pot pie in my cast iron skillets that went straight from the oven to table.
