Chicken Pot Pie


This Chicken Pot Pie recipe is savory and rich.
Warms your soul on a cold night.  It’s easy and can be frozen for a quick work night meal.
Using packaged pie crust makes this ready to bake in minutes.
But the best is to make my “Perfect Pie Crust” recipe if you have the time.

1 cup carrots, diced
1 cup frozen pearl onions
1/2 cup frozen petite peas
1 TSP parsely
32oz low sodium chicken stock
3 cups cooked chicken, white or dark meat or mixed
2 TBLS heavy cream
2 TBLS butter
3 TBLS flour
1 egg, beaten
1 pkg prepared pie crust (my preferred brand is “Immaculate”)
Salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375.
In a frying pan saute the carrots with the butter for 5 minutes then add the onions and peas. Heat for another 5 minutes.
In a  large pot heat all but 1 cup of the stock. Add the chicken, parsley and veggies. Simmer covered for 5 minutes.  Stir the flour into the reserved cup of stock at room temperature. Add the stock and flour mixture to the pot. Add the cream and simmer for a few minutes until the sauce begins to thicken.
Roll the dough out and cut to the size you like.  Pictured I made a single crust on a 5″ corning bakeware and a double crust in a 5″ tin pie pan. Fill the pie/bakeware and top with the crust. Trim the side and cut a square in the top of the crust.  Brush with the beaten egg.
You can also make this in a casserole dish for a shared pot pie.
Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes.
Makes four 5″  pie/bakeware pies or one 10×10 casserole.
