Mom’s Chicken Pot Pie

Posted by on Feb 26, 2013 in Chicken, Cooking, Dinner

Chicken pot pie is one of the ultimate comfort foods.  Perfect for a cool fall evening and especially tasty the next day for lunch!  My Mom makes the most amazing chicken pot pie, and kindly gave me her recipe.  It is one of my favorite dishes to make for my family now.   It’s not quite as good as when Mom makes it, but it’s a close second. :)

Chicken Pot Pie

(serves 6)

1/2 cup of butter (1 stick)

1/2 cup of flour

2+ cups of chicken broth

1/2 cup of milk

2 cups of frozen mixed vegetables

2 cups of chopped chicken (about 2 breasts)

salt, pepper, onion powder, oregano to taste

pie crust (I usually use Trader Joe’s frozen one)

Preheat oven according to pie crust directions.  Melt butter in a large skillet over low heat.  Once melted stir in flour slowly.  Cook mixture whisking frequently to keep lumps from forming.  Cook for 5-10 minutes creating a roux.  Once it thickens pour in broth and milk.  Turn heat up to medium and stir in frozen vegetables and chicken.  Heat well and add spices to taste.  Pour mixture into prepared dish and cover with pie crust.  Cook for 20 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.  Let sit 10 minutes before serving.
