I love chicken pot pie.  It is definitely a comfort food.  This recipe is my favorite and it is easily altered to whatever veggies you have available.

Chicken Pot Pie
Serves: 2
 
makes 1 9 inch pie
Ingredients
Buttery Pie Crust
  • 1¼ cup of all purpose flour
  • 1 stick of butter, chilled and diced
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup ice cold water
Filling
  • 1 Tbsp of butter
  • 1 cup of frozen carrots, celery, onion (or any other vegetable blend of your choice)
  • 1 small potato, diced and cooked (optional)
  • ¾ cup of cooked chicken, shredded
  • 2 Tbsp of flour
  • salt
  • poultry seasoning (you could make this yourself, it is a combination of black pepper, thyme, sage, rosemary, and nutmeg)
  • ¾ cup of chicken broth
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the flour and salt in a food processor. Slowly pulse in the butter.
  3. Add the water slowly, until the dough forms into a ball (I didn’t need all of the water).
  4. Wrap the ball of dough in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 30 minutes or in the fridge for 4 hours or even overnight.
  5. Divide the dough into two pieces. Roll out each ball of dough to fit a 9 inch pie plate.
  6. Place crust into pie plate and press evenly across bottom and sides of pie plate.
  7. Bake bottom crust for about 10 minutes.
  8. In a skillet saute the frozen vegetables in butter, about 1-2 minutes.
  9. Add the cooked chicken and sprinkle the flour and seasonings across the top. Stir until the flour is incorporated
  10. Pour in the chicken broth. Simmer uncovered, until the mixture begins to thicken.
  11. Add the cooked potatoes and pour the filling into the prepared pie crust.
  12. Fold remaining pie crust over the top.
  13. Place pie on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees until the crust is golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.
Notes
If you like a thicker crust you may need to double the pie crust recipe.

 I often double the pie crust recipe and save any remaining dough in the freezer for a future project.

I love the smell of sauteing vegetables, especially if butter and onion are involved.

I think we could have eaten the entire pie ourselves.
