Default Good Chicken Pot Pie

A good staple of mine. Feeds a bunch. Modified from a Rachael Rae recipe (for the better)

1˝ - 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breast
3 tbsp. butter
2 ribs celery, chopped
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
1 cup frozen peas
2 tbsp. poultry seasoning
4 tbsp. flour
1 pint half & half or cream
1 quart chicken stock
2 pinches nutmeg
Salt and pepper
2 pie crusts

1. Cut chicken into small bite-size pieces. In a large sauté pan over medium heat, cook chicken in butter for 2 minutes. Add veggies and season with salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning. Cook 5 minutes more, add flour and cook another minute or until mixture becomes lumpy and dry.
3. Slowly stir in cream and chicken stock. Bring to a boil by raising the heat, then turn the heat back to a simmer and cook for another 10 minutes.
4. In a round casserole dish with 1-2 inch sides, place one pie crust on the bottom and secure to the sides of the dish. Poke holes with a fork throughout crust. Bake at 425 degrees for 5-10 minutes until lightly brown and crusty.
5. Adjust filling seasonings. Add nutmeg and peas and stir to combine. Pour filling into the dish. Cover with the second pie crust. Poke holes in the top crust. Brush with oil or butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Return to the oven for 20-25 minutes or until brown on the top.
6. The pie crust can be substituted with flaky biscuits or filo dough, served along side the filling.

I prefer puff pastry for ours. Buy the frozen sheet stuff. It's soooo good with pot pie. I also have a super kick @ss recipe for this. Mmmm. Got me wanting it tonight.

Here is the recipe I use. 5/5 with 2000 plus votes. Not mine, but it's good. And pretty easy too. Nutmeg...hmmm. Wonder how that works. Always worth a try!

I could give you about 10 or 20 ones from that site that you'd shoot your mother for. Just look at the top 10 list. They are all amazing. At least the ones I've tried. I have some really good spaghetti's from there, a lasagna that is amazing, and a chicken parm that is fantastic, even an apple pie. Really can't go wrong. Even made some grilled lobster the other day that was awesome.

As for the chicken pot pie....it's really good. Really easy. Seems odd boiling the chicken and such, but it's a winner every time. Wife, kids and me all like it. Enough that we've made it a bunch of times. The celery seed is a must. Oh mama. Only thing I do is add a bit extra carrot because the kids love them and make a little extra sauce by adding more creme or milk (I forget what it takes) and perhaps a bit more broth as well as a bit more flour for thickness.

Whichever recipe you guys try. Be sure to try puff pastry. This is the stuff I use. It's in the frozen food isle at the grocery store.

Kids favorite here: I exclude the dijon and use heavy cream instead of evap milk. Still is good.

I made Alton Brown's Curry Chicken Pot Pie last night for dinner, and it was easily the best I've ever made.

Seriously, Alton Brown can do no wrong.
