Classic pot pie


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.





I'm Erin, a busy mom of three, chauffeur, cook, housekeeper, and wanna be decorator. I love old movies, good books, and a daily trip to Lowes. We have recently bought a new we are fixing up and changing everything. This blog is to record our renovating journey. This is not the first house we have done. Actually, it is our third. My husband and I love a project. Any project. We both love working on our home, have the same taste, (which is great), and love working and re purposing things on our budget. We can show you how to put together a high end and creative look without breaking the bank. Taking something old and recreating it into something new and exciting for any room is my passion. Hope you enjoy this decorating journey with us!
