Chicken Pot Pie

New Year….new challenges……. new recipe!

Today’s big challenge is baking my first Chicken Pot Pie. My friend Kaitlin told me that her mom makes the best chicken pot pie, so I begged her for the recipe.

There’s nothing like eating a flaky pie crust with creamy chicken pot pie filling. It is the perfect comfort food for a cold winter day.

Cooking is Love made edible

Kaitlin gave me a copy of her mom’s recipe, and I bought all the ingredients last Thursday. There’s a winter storm right now in New York, and my hubby and I planned to just stay home this weekend. So, here I am… ready to surprise my sweetheart with a delicious homemade chicken pot pie!

Chicken Pot Pie

by Patricia

Ingredients:

  • 3 boneless chicken breast, cubed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped coarsely
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 stalks celery, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 carrots, chopped coarsely
  • 3 potatoes, cubed
  • 1 cup peas
  • 5 tbsp. butter
  • 4 tbsp. flour
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 pie crust
  • salt & pepper
  • garlic powder

Instructions:

1. Place onion, celery, potatoes, peas, and carrots in a large pot and add just enough water to cover; season with salt and pepper.

2. Bring to a boil over medium heat, simmer for 25 minutes, drain and set aside.

3. Heat a large skillet with 1 tbsp. of butter. Add chicken and garlic; saute until cooked through, then removed from the pan.

4. In the same skillet, melt 4 tbsp. butter, then add 4 tbsp. of flour. Stir constantly to make a roux.

5. Add 3 cups of chicken broth and 1/2 cup heavy cream; stir until thickened.

6. Toss vegetables, chicken, and broth together in a bowl; season to taste.

7. Pour mixture into pie crust.

8. Place the top crust over the filling. Make sure you have nice fluted edges to prevent leaking. Using a knife, cut 5 slits on the top of the crust.

9. Rub softened butter on the top crust. Sprinkle lightly with garlic powder

10. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until golden brown.

How to Make Chicken Pot Pie

It’s not only my first time making this pie, but it’s also the first time I made a two-crust-filled pie. I don’t know how to flute or crimp the pie crust. Thus, I watched a few videos on YouTube and decided to follow the simplest one – using a fork to crimp the edge. I guess, I still need a little bit more practice on how to crimp and create patterns to make this a more “beautiful” pie (haha😊).

Kaitlin wasn’t kidding when she said it’s the best chicken pot pie. My hubby and I love it so much – we already ate half of the pie.

And yes… I want more!

  1. I am not a chicken pot pie fan but I have found that the best chicken pot pie’s are homemade. There is a place out here in Southern California that makes them from scratch and they are the best thing ever. It’s just like apple pie store-bought is OK but hole made is delicious.
