Brrrr…it is a cold and windy fall day at my house. One of my favorite things to do on a cold fall day is to make something warm and comforting for dinner. This is one of my families all time favorites. It is a classic pot pie I created years ago, and it never gets old to make or eat. Here is the recipe.
Classic Pot pie
Dice 4 large carrots
Dice 3 stalks of celery
Place them in a pot, fill with water, and cook until tender.
Brown 2 ½ cups diced chicken making sure to season the chicken with salt and pepper.
1/3 cup butter
½ an onion chopped
Sautee the onion in the butter until tender then add
1/3 cup flour to create a roux
1 ½ cup chicken broth
2/3 cup milk
½ tsp salt
¼ – ½ tsp pepper
When the sauce is thickened add the cooked chicken, carrots, celery, ½ cup frozen potato cubes, and ½ cup peas.
Take your refrigerated pie crust and line the bottom of the pie plate. Fill the plate with your filling and top with the other crust.
Bake at 425 degrees for 40 minutes. Let the pie sit for ten to fifteen minutes before cutting.
