Chicken Pot Pie

Posted on 07/14/2013 by jewelparadise

This was my first time making chicken pot pie, and also my first time making any kind of pie crust from scratch! I can certainly understand now why the process of crust-making is so notorious for being frightening, but I encourage just diving in... The results might not be beautiful the first time, but having homemade pie crust is worth it :)
Making the crust:

The filling:

The filled pie with sauce:

The finished pie:

Recipe (adapted from this version)

2 9-inch pie crusts
1 lb cubed chicken
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup frozen peas
1 potato, diced
1/2 cup diced celery
1/3 cup butter
3/4 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup flour
Salt, pepper, and other seasonings as desired to taste
3 cups chicken broth
1 cup milk
Egg wash (1 egg mixed with 2 tbsp water)

1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
2. In a saucepan with some water, boil the vegetables and chicken (if yours is uncooked. I started the potato first, then added the carrots, and a few minutes later the celery and peas. I added the chicken at the end.) Drain if excess water remains; set aside.
3. In a pan over medium heat, cook onions in butter until soft and translucent. Add in flour and seasonings, then slowly mix in the broth and milk. Simmer the mixture on medium-low until thick, stirring occasionally.
4. Brush the bottom crust with some egg wash and bake it for about 5 minutes. After removing it from the oven, place the chicken and vegetable mixture in, and then pour the sauce mixture over it.
5. Cover the pie with the top crust, seal the edges, and make a few slits in the top crust.
6. Bake the pie in the oven for 45-60 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly. Cool before serving.

Home-made pies are not meant to be perfectly beautiful, they're meant to be rustic and friendly; yours looks delicious!

I'm firmly in the "who cares what it looks like if it's delicious" camp, and that goes double for pie crust. (Primarily because I truly, truly suck at them.) Not that yours looks bad; I think it looks fab, myself.

Also, yum. Chicken pot, chicken pot, chicken pot piiiiie!

It looks amazing and I agree with everyone else - it's the taste that matters. Now, my husband likes to tease me because I have been known to make some ugly cookies in my time. That said, he won't eat them if they're *too pretty* because he swears the ugly ones taste better. Hahaha.

Haha! Well, the recipe is definitely delicious :)

That looks delicious! I have bought frozen chicken pot pies but never made my own. This makes me want to do it! (But probably not until the weather gets colder.)

It would certainly make a fantastic winter meal! I hope you give it a try :)

I love a pie when the weather is colder. I wonder if this would taste good with tofu substituted for chicken?
