Comforting Chicken Pot Pie


I have been craving comfort food lately. With the weather changing to cool mornings and breezy evenings, all I have wanted to do is warm up!! I found this recipe on allrecipes.com and it is truly delicious! My husband wanted to eat the whole pie by himself!

*Cooks note-instead of covering the chicken and veggie mix with water I covered with chicken stock- As noted I strained the stick into a bowl and then measured it out when it is called for later in the recipe. This gives it a little more favor. I also added dried herbs and garlic powder to the chicken and veggie mix while it was boiling.

Ingredients



1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cubed
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup frozen green peas
1/2 cup sliced celery
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1 3/4 cups chicken broth
2/3 cup milk
2 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts


Directions


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C.)


In a saucepan, combine chicken, carrots, peas, and celery. Add water to cover and boil for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, drain and set aside.


In the saucepan over medium heat, cook onions in butter until soft and translucent. Stir in flour, salt, pepper, and celery seed. Slowly stir in chicken broth and milk. Simmer over medium-low heat until thick. Remove from heat and set aside.


Place the chicken mixture in bottom pie crust. Pour hot liquid mixture over. Cover with top crust, seal edges, and cut away excess dough. Make several small slits in the top to allow steam to escape.


Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.
