Pot pie is a culinary term that typically refers to a type of meat pie with top crust generally made from flaky pastry. Some pot pie variations do not require a bottom crust and thus are similar to a baked casserole rather than a traditional pie.
To celebrate the National Great American Pot Pie Day, treat yourself to a delicious pot pie. You can either buy it or cook yourself. Here is an easy chicken pot pie recipe for you.
In a saucepan, combine 1 pound cubed chicken breasts, 1 cup frozen green peas, 1 cup sliced carrots, and 1/2 cup sliced celery. Add water to cover and boil for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and drain.
In another saucepan, melt 1/3 cup butter, add 1/3 cup chopped onion and cook until onion is soft. Stir in 1/3 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and 1/4 tsp celery seed. Slowly stir in 1 3/4 cups chicken broth and 2/3 cup milk. Simmer over medium-low heat until thick.
Put chicken mixture in 9-inch unbaked pie crust. Pour hot liquid mixture over and cover with another 9-inch unbaked pie crust. Seal edges, cut away excess dough and make some small slits in the top. Bake at 425 °F for about half an hour.Remind me with Google Calendar
