Chicken pot pie is simple.

Because it’s so good, chicken pot pie is a traditional comfort dish. But for a while, I avoided preparing chicken pot pies because I thought it would be too difficult and instead bought frozen or prefabricated versions. Not to discount those pies, but the tastiest chicken pot pie is always handmade. 

Other than chicken, there is no set formula for the ingredients that go into chicken pot pie filling. In contrast to my typical practice, I added corn and potatoes to this dish in addition to the customary celery, onion, carrot, and peas. I’ve seen various recipes that call for pearl onions, mushrooms, or even turkey in place of the chicken. A fantastic opportunity to use up any leftover vegetables in your refrigerator, in my opinion.

My pot pies tend to be a little bit more liquidy, which is typical. If you like a gravy-like consistency, though, either use a little less liquid (the veggies will release enough as they boil) or add more flour to the mixture before placing it into the pie. If mine is a little more liquidy, I personally use dinner rolls to absorb the extra moisture, which is a tasty method to accomplish it.

For a reason, homemade chicken pot pie is a classic. I like cooking it because it’s one of those dinners that makes my partner feel full after eating it, it allows me to eat a lot of vegetables, and it uses up leftovers from the fridge.  Using turkey, sliced beef, ground beef, fish, etc. would be simple to modify. If you’re creating a variant, I recommend switching up the stock or broth you use in order to maximize the taste of the protein.

INGREDIENTS

two ready-made pie crusts
1/3 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup sliced celery
1/3 cup butter and 1/3 cup flour
3/4 cups of chicken broth and 1/2 cup of heavy cream
2 teaspoons of pepper and thyme
Cut into bite-sized pieces,

2 1/2 cups cooked chicken
Peas, 1/2 cup
sliced potatoes and half a cup of corn

INSTRUCTIONS

Set oven temperature to 425 degrees.
Butter, celery, and onions should be added to a large pan and cooked on medium-high until tender. Flour should be added and mixed thoroughly.
Add heavy cream and chicken broth. Seasonings are stirred in, and the dish is simmered until it thickens.
Chicken and veggie fillings should be added. Toss in sauce to coat.

One pie crust should be placed into a pie dish, and it should be pressed down to mold to the dish’s edges. Put some filler in there. Affix the pie’s top crust, flute the edges, and seal the seams. On the top, make incisions in several locations.
30 to 40 minutes of baking. Cover the pie’s edges with aluminum foil for the final 15 minutes to prevent burning. Before serving, let stand for 5 to 10 minutes.
