EASY Chicken Pot Pie



When I think of a typical New England winter day, cold-snowy weather, football in front of the fire, and enjoying home-cooked comfort food all come to mind. In fact, without good food and football, winters in Massachusetts would be a hard sell. I mean, I like to ski...but not in sub zero weather. Cooking in the winter gives me great pleasure...it's therapeutic for me, and it really helps me get through the frigid, gray days that stick around for a good five plus months. I love discovering new hearty meals that everyone will enjoy, and I'm going to share my chicken pot pie recipe, which is not only a crowd pleaser but also a real gem. #keeper #familydinner #newengland #Massachusetts #coldweather #eatingin #delish #comfortfoods #chickenpotpie #easydinner


Ingredients:


olive oil

3 carrots, peeled and diced into small pieces

3 celery stalks, diced into small pieces\

1 onion, chopped into small pieces

salt & pepper to taste

1/2 cup of flour

2 cups of lower sodium chicken broth

1 cup of 2% milk (do not use light cream/heavy cream - it will be too thick)

1 cup of frozen peas

3 medium potatoes, cooked in microwave & cut into 1" pieces - skin left on

garlic powder, onion powder, more salt & pepper to taste

2-3 chicken boneless/skinless breasts, cooked and cut into small pieces

1 puff pastry sheet

1 egg mixed with 1 tablespoon water (for pastry topping)


4 Servings


Preheat over to 350 degrees. In a large frying pan, sauté your carrots, celery, and onion on medium flame in olive oil. Add salt & pepper to taste. I drizzle olive oil to coat pan..and add more if needed.


** I only use Extra Virgin Olive Oil First Cold Pressed


When veggies are cooked, mix in the flour and coat all the veggies. Add in the chicken broth and milk and stir. When sauce has thickened (3 minutes), add your frozen peas, potatoes, and chicken. Mix well and add to an over proof baking/casserole dish. #corningware



Place your puff pastry sheet on top of your dish, crimp the edges, and brush egg mixture on top. Poke a few holes into your crust with toothpick or fork and put foil on edges of crust (I didn't do this and mine was overcooked) and bake for 40 minutes. #stilldelicious #puffpastry


I rolled out the puff pastry on a floured surface, just a bit, and used scissors to cut excess and make heart cut outs (and a bad attempt at a center tulip).


Yummmy!
