Friday Recipes: Chicken Pot Pie!

I am all about comfort food.

Chicken pot pie is all-american wonderful comfort food. This week I made one for the first time in a long while and it was sooooo good!!


2 9-inch unbaked pie crusts
1lb thawed cubed chicken breast
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
2-3 medium red potatoes chopped into 1" cubes
1 cup chopped carrots
2/3 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup flour
1 tsp celery seed
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
2/3 cups milk


Preheat Oven to 425

In a large saucepan, combine 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, chicken, potatoes, carrots, and celery. Boil for 15 minutes, drain and set aside.

In the saucepan over medium heat cook onions in butter until soft and transluscent. Mix in celery seed, salt, pepper and flour. Slowly add 1 1/2 cups chicken broth and milk. Simmer until thick.

Place chicken mixture in bottom pie crust. Pour hot liquid mixture over top. Cover with top crust and seal edges. Cut several small slits in top.

Bake in preheated oven 30-35 minutes or until crust is golden. Cool 5-10 minutes before serving.
