Note 1: If you like your meat with more flavor add more seasoning (garlic pepper, garlic powder, poultry seasoning) to the sauce and to the chicken mixture before cooking.

Note 2: Cook the chicken and vegetables in chicken stock instead of water, that adds flavor too.

Note 3: Pre-bake the bottom crust for 6 minutes, for a firmer base.
