Homemade Chicken Pot Pie

ust had to share this one with you.  I found a terrific homemade Chicken Pot pie recipe in that Southern Favorites magazine I told you about.  And it’s definitely a keeper.  My hubby was purring after eating this stuff.  Putty in my hands. :) Maybe.

I baked mine in a large oval French white Corning ware dish and it was perfect for us.  So, I’m going to tell you how I made mine, not the exact recipe from the magazine.  I cut a few corners and skipped a few steps (as per my usual), but it really turned out fab.

Company Chicken Pot Pie

1 medium potato, diced

2 celery stalks, chopped

1/2 onion, diced

2 tbl. vegetable oil

4 TBL butter

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1  cup milk

1 1/2 cups chicken broth ( I used a whole can of chicken broth &  less milk)

1 tsp. dried thyme

1/2 tsp. garlic powder (I used garlic salt)

1/2 tsp. ground white pepper.

2 cups cooked chicken (leftover turkey is great too)

1 bag mixed veggies (green beans, lima beans, carrots, peas, corn) from Publix

1 premade flat pie crust from the dairy case. (I have never made my own, with the great piecrusts at the grocery store all ready to go. Shortcuts, I’m all about ‘em)

In skillet, heat the oil and put in the celery and onions and potato, cooking til tender (the potato will not be completely cooked through).  Add to baking dish and set aside.

Add the butter in the same skillet and melt, then add the flour and stir, making a paste.  Stir in the chicken broth, keep whisking until it starts to thicken, turn it up and it will start to boil.  Keep whisking.  Add the milk . Whisk until it is thickened sufficiently. This part takes about 10 min. or so.

Preheat oven to 400*.

Place the chopped chicken (or turkey) in with the sauteed onion and celery in the baking dish.  Add the frozen bag of mixed veggies.  Mix all of that up well.  Pour the thickened broth, making sure it seeps down in the veggies and chicken.IMG_8048

Fold out the  piecrust, stretching it from side to side and crimp down on the edges so it covers the entire dish.  You can make it all fancy with a fork.  :) Cut a couple of slits in the crust.

Bake for about 40-45 minutes until the top is golden brown.

Eat and enjoy!!  We sure did, this one will be going into the permanent rotation here at our casa.  Hubby raved about it and said it’s MUCH better than Marie Callender’s ever thought about being. :)

I’m joining Jen’s Tasty Tuesday a little late!

  3. Merry Christmas Rhoda! This sounds wonderful! I love Chicken Pot Pie!

  4. I made one almost identical to this last week with stuff I had on hand. The only thing I didn’t like about it was I used canned mixed vegetables, but next time I’ll use frozen for a fresher flavor. As cousin Eddie says on “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” “It was gu-ood!”

  5. Mmmm.. That looks so yummy! Thanks so much for sharing. i hope you and your family have a very Merry CHRISTmas!

  6. Not only yummy, but there is something very ‘pretty’ about a chicken pot pie….the warmth oozing out and all the good flavors assaulting you before that first bite….thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Rhoda,
    Chicken Pot Pie is in the oven, love your blog, I’ve been following your blog awhile now, it’s time to introduce myself, I’m Michelle from Iowa. I’m not sure if I found your site while searching for BM paint colors, that’s a good chance. Whatever you like, I seem to have a passion for too!! We visited SanDestin last year to celebrate my daughters birthday engagement and we will return in June for her “Destin” ation wedding. I considered staying at the condo you stayed at, but we chose condos for a large group , with a great rate, at Sanctuary at Red Fish. I also stay at home, I’ve sewn custom window treatments in the past, small home business. and occasionally sell a blind or two . You have a super blog site!! KUDOS Consider me another fan, and FRIEND…Michelle

  19. It is in the oven now! It smells SOOOOO GOOOD. But where is the thyme in the recipie part?
