Chicken Pot Pie Squares

Quick and easy week night dinner ideas are a must around here once school starts. With two teens and a fifth grader, after school schedules are hectic, but we still try to sit down to a satisfying dinner together. If I can whip up a tasty meal and help my kid’s schools at the same time, it’s a win-win situation, and the Campbell’s Labels for Education Program helps me do just that!

There are so many Labels for Education participating products that my family uses every day, including the Campbell’s Soup and Pepperidge Farm puff pastry in these easy Chicken Pot Pie Squares.

It’s as simple as clipping UPC codes from brands you’re probably already using. All those UPC codes add up to points that your child’s school can redeem for art, athletic and academic supplies. There are even coupons available on the Labels for Education website, so you can save money and help your child’s school at the same time!

Campbell's Soup and Puff Pastry

You can find out if your school participates at the Find My School page. If not, help them enroll by contacting your school principal and asking them to appoint a coordinator. Or you could even volunteer to coordinate the program yourself. You definitely want your child’s school to participate though, because right now 1,000 schools will be eligible to win $1,000 each by entering the Labels for Education Sweepstakes. How awesome would that be?!!

Campbell's-Collage

I try to volunteer at my youngest’s elementary school at least once a week. It’s a great way to be involved and get to know his friends and teachers. And since his school is just a few minutes from our local King Sooper’s (Kroger) grocery store, I usually make a quick pit-stop there on my way home from the school to pick up anything that didn’t make it onto my weekly grocery list–in this case, some Campbell’s Cream of Chicken Soup and a rotisserie chicken.

Once you have all of your ingredients for this pot pie assembled, it comes together so quickly. While the puff pastry bakes, you can boil your potatoes and start the filling simmering on the stove-top. When I’m really in a pinch for time, I even skip the potatoes and just add frozen mixed vegetables. Feel free to adapt the fillings to use whatever veggies you have on had. You could even do a beef or pork version.

This is such a great way to enjoy chicken pot pie, and so much faster to put together than the traditional version with a crust–but you still end up with some delicious comfort food on your plate. Plus, everyone gets their own individual serving , which is always fun!  I hope your family enjoys this quick and easy weeknight meal as much as mine does!

    I love chicken pot pie with puff pastry!

  2. I just pinned this because I know my family would love this meal. Like you said, easy weeknight meals that help collect points for the school is a win-win. 😉 #client

  3. I saw this on G+ and came to pin it. This is perfect for the cooler temps Fall brings.

  4. Love the twist on a tried and true fav! I’ve got a recipe for homemade cream of chicken soup. So when I make a batch I freeze it in can-size servings. I used it for these pot pie squares and it was SO good. Now, if I could just quit eating the puff pasrty as soon as it comes outta the oven I might be able to share with my family.
