Want to be a “supper”star? Whip this dish up!

Welcome to good ol’ fashioned supper time!

This brings back memories of eating Banquet Pot Pies when I was a kid. My favorite was the beef and the best part to me was the crust. (Still is!)

How long has it been since you’ve crafted a chicken pot pie?

Or, have you ever?

It really IS easy!

To feed 4 human beings (and a bite or two for the dog), you will need:

  1. 1-lb of chicken breasts, cubed
  2. 16 oz of frozen veggies (I used about 8 oz each of corn and peas) I also added some sliced baby carrots for more color
  3. Minced or clove garlic and chopped red onion, whatever amount you like
  4. A healthy fat to cook garlic, onion, carrots, and chicken in (I used approximately a tablespoon of organic ghee)
  5. One 14-0z can of chicken broth, plus a little water
  6. Cornstarch (sorry I didn’t measure how much I used!)
  7. 2 pie crusts, I used ready-made
  8. Shredded cheese, optional
  9. I used the following seasonings: pink sea salt, pepper, Mrs. Dash Lemon Pepper, thyme, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder

Pie crust

If this were my daughter, Lacey, the crust would be homemade. I don’t have time for such nonsense!  Just kidding!  😉

Alright, let’s get started.

  • Have your crusts ready–on the counter warming to room temperature.
  • In a chili-sized pan, melt the ghee over low-to-medium heat and add garlic and onion. Cook for a few minutes, until garlic just starts to turn golden and then add chicken and raw carrots, if you are using them. Add your choice of seasonings.
  • When chicken is no longer pink, add broth and frozen veggies. Cook about 15 minutes.
  • Place a teaspoon (or so) of cornstarch in a small cup and add some water. Stir until dissolved.
  • Slowly pour the mixture into your pot of deliciousness while stirring. If after a few minutes, your concoction is not thick enough make another batch of the water and cornstarch, but probably use less this time.
  • When it is the right thickness, add cheese, if desired
  • Place and position the bottom crust in your pie plate. Pour the deliciousness into the crust.
  • Position and seal the top crust. Poke a few air holes with a fork. Sprinkle some cheese on top, if you fancy that.
  • I forgot to, but brushing the top crust with a beaten egg makes it look even more appealing.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 25-35 minutes, depending on your oven. I did 25 ish.
  • Let set a few minutes and dish up.
  • Enjoy!

Hey, welcome back. I haven’t done a meal post for a long while. I hope you try this one out.

If you have a different recipe, share it!

Next blog series will be about a quick (only 3 days!) adventure to my favorite place…Colorado.

I REALLY got some stunning photos. This was our first fall trip, so there are lots of quaking golden aspens to share.  🙂
