Freezing Chicken Pot Pie?

Katie Nell | Dec 7, 200606:01 PM

For my best friend's Christmas present, I'm giving her at least 5 casserole/ soup type dishes and snacks that will be frozen for her to bake off whenever she's ready for them. (She has an 18-month old and one on the way in early January, hence the need for the meals!) One of her favorite comfort foods is chicken pot pie so I was hoping to make this for her. I'm pretty clueless when it comes to freezing anything. I think I could probably make the filling without a bottom crust, freeze that, and then add the top crust and freeze again. My concern is that the crust will get soggy once I have her defrost it in the fridge. Can I or should I just tell her to bake from frozen or do you think it will work to defrost overnight in the fridge and then bake it? I have to provide her very specific instructions because she's a very basic cook. Thanks for any help or advice!
