Chicken Pot Pie

I have been making Chicken Pot Pie for the past 15 years and it is definitely a family favorite. I decided to put small pieces of broccoli and guess what, it is now a favorite vegetable for my kids!


One double pie crust of your choice–(see recipe)

1 Chicken breast cut into small chunks, boil until done and drain water, set aside.

2 carrots, peeled and sliced.

1 bunch broccoli cut into chunks

1 Potato, peeled and cubed

1 small onion chopped

1 stalk celery, sliced

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup flour a little less not level

1/4 tsp. basil

1 tsp. salt (estimate)

dash of black pepper

1 1/2 cups water mixed in pan on stove with bouillon to make broth

1 1/2 cups milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Wash, peel and cut all vegetables, boil them or cook in the way you desire, set aside.

Melt butter in large pan, add onion and celery, saute until soft.


Add flour and whisk well making a roux. Let it bubble.


Add milk and broth mixture. Cook this mixture whisking continually until it boils, continue cooking an additional 2-3 minutes, add basil and salt. salt is an estimate.


Add all of your vegetables and chicken, mix well. Season for taste.

Roll out crust and place on the bottom of baking pan, pour chicken pot pie mixture on crust.


Roll out second half of dough and make a top for the pie. Place on top of pie and seal.


Bake in oven for 50 minutes or until done. Remove from oven and let set a few minutes, pie will be very hot!

  18. Reblogged this on Sarah's Attic Of Treasures and commented:
    Oh does this recipe look spectacular. Check out the homemade pie crust. The only thing I would add is corn. I love corn in pot pies. Comfort food at it’s best.

  23. Lyn, I used to make pot pies with store bought Pillsbury pie crust. I think this recipe sounds yummy! I like adding a pinch of cumin or sage to make the chicken flavor come out. I like the idea of basil, so good in Italian foods snd had not considered this before. ๐Ÿ™‚
