Step by step how to make chicken pot pie with this amazing recipe!


1 1/2 Tb butter
1/2 Tb olive oil
1/2 small onion, diced
1 small celery stalk, diced
1 carrot, diced
1/2 large potato, diced
3/4 C diced mushroom
salt and pepper
1/2 C frozen peas
1 1/2 C cooked chicken breasts, diced
1/4 C butter
1/4 C flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 C chicken broth
1/4 cup cream
1 single layer pie crust – store bought or homemade
1 beaten egg


1.  In a large skillet over high heat, melt 1 1/2 Tb of butter and olive oil together.  Add onions, carrots and celery to the pan and cook until beginning to soften.  Add potato, mushroom, salt and pepper.  Continue to cook until potato begins to soften.  Add peas and chicken breast.  Pour all ingredients into a separate bowl and return pan to the heat.
2.  To make gravy, add 1/4 C butter and allow to melt.  Add seasonings and whisk in the flour slowly as you sprinkle it over the top of the butter.  Allow the flour to cook for a few minutes, then slowly pour in your chicken broth while whisking.  Continue to whisk and cook your gravy to remove any lumps and allow it to thicken.  Pour over your veggies and chicken.  Mix to combine.
3.  Pour the mixture into a greased pie plate. Brush the edges of the plate with the beaten egg and then place the pie crust over the top. crimp the crust onto the edge of the plate then brush with a beaten egg.  Bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees.


You can freeze your pot pie after assembling and before baking. When you do, just bake it at 375 degrees for 90 minutes.

If you want to make individual pot pies, just use 6 ramekins instead and divide the filling evenly into them. You will need two pie crusts for this instead of one so plan accordingly! Bake them for about 20-25 minutes.
