Chicken pot pie is the kind of meal a lot of us crave when it's cold, wintry, and our outsides are shivering. We need that injection of comfort food that warms us up like nothing else can. A bone-chilling rain that seems to freeze our inner soul is no match for a great chicken pot pie! Serve with a crisp green salad and baked cinnamon apple slices for a meal that everyone will show up at the table for, possibly an hour in advance.

 

Chicken Pot Pie

Ingredients:

2 pie crusts - unbaked (Pillsbury ready to bake or homemade (pie crust recipe)
1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
3 medium carrots, peeled and sliced (1/4 inch thick)
2 stalks celery, sliced 1/4 inch thick
4 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon ground dried thyme
3 Tablespoons dry sherry
1/4 cup frozen peas, thawed
3 Tablespoons minced parsley (fresh)

 

Directions:

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F, place oven rack in middle position.

2. Place chicken and broth in a stock pot over medium heat. Cover, bring to a simmer and simmer until the chicken is done (about 10 min.)

3. Transfer the chicken to a large bowl; reserve the broth in a separate cup or small bowl.

4. Place oil in the stock pot, turn heat to medium high.

5. Add the carrots, onion and celery. Sauté until just tender (about 5 min.). Season to taste with salt and pepper.

6. Shred the chicken meat into bit-sized pieces, then place the vegetables into the bowl with the chicken and set aside.

7. Heat the butter in the now empty stock pot over medium heat. Once melted, add the flour and cook 1 minute.

8. Whisk in the chicken broth, milk and thyme. Bring to a simmer, continuing to simmer until sauce thickens (about 1 min.). Season with salt and pepper, stir in the sherry.

9. Pour the sauce over the chicken-vegetables mixture, stir well. Stir in the peas and parsley.

10. Line a 9x13 inch pan with one of the pie crusts. If using ready to bake pie crusts, roll the dough to fit the pan.

11. Pour the chicken mixture into the pan and top with second crust.

12. Bake in preheated oven until pie crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly, about 30 minutes.
