Chicken Pot Pie

I made Chicken Pot Pie for the first time last week.  I have never made Chicken Pot Pie as my Husband does not like cooked carrots, celery, onion or peas.  I am sure you are wondering “Why did she make Pot Pie?”   You better sit down … the Hubby asked me to make it.  Yes, it was a request.  He is venturing out into the world of vegetables and trying things he typically does not eat.  Since I am a huge veggie eater, I think this is great.  Now we can share!

Stick with me as my method for this recipe is simple, but I may not make it sound that way.  I try not to have an excess of leftovers, as they don’t get eaten very well.  This recipe will fed a hungry Rancher and his wife with a small dish leftover.

2 – 3 Carrots

2 – 3 Celery Stalks

1 small Onion

1 clove of garlic

* Roast vegetables with EVOO, salt and pepper until crisp tender.

* Dice vegetables when cooled.

Chicken cooked – Use your personal preference or whatever you have in the fridge to use up.  I had leftovers from a chicken I roasted earlier in the week.

2 slices of Fried Bacon, crumbled

* Mix meats with diced vegetables.

1 – 14.5 oz can of Chicken Broth

3 T flour

*Make a gravy by bringing chicken broth to a boil and adding flour.  Stir until smooth and thickened.

Add 1/3 C Peas.

Sprinkled in some dried thyme.

*Add vegetable/ meat mixture to gravy.

*Place in an 8 X 8 greased casserole dish.

Like I said, this was my first attempt at Pot Pie and I didn’t know how much time it would take, so I bought a pie crust in town.

I cut the crust into strips and made a pretty lattice top.  I didn’t know how much I would like pie crust on a casserole type dish and thought the lattice top would give me a fair taste test.

*Bake Pot Pie in a 400* oven for 30-35 minutes until hot and bubbling and pie crust is lightly browned.

I was happy with the Chicken Pot Pie and liked the curst combination too!  The Rancher was also pleased; he even told his Mom how good it was.  She was impressed that he ate so many green vegetables!

Next time I make this recipe I am going to roast mushrooms with the vegetables and make a solid top crust vs. the lattice.

Are you a veggie eater?  Do you have a non-vegetable eater at your house?

      My guideline recipe called for puff pastry, but I could not find any around here. We went to the big city last weekend and I got puff pastry. I have never used it before and am excited about it. I also found a dessert recipe I want to try using puff pastry.

    Looks good and kudos to The Rancher for trying something new! I think adding mushrooms is a very good idea!
    We love veggies here, especially roasted! 🙂

  7. I like your version of pot pie- the roasted vegetables must give it some wonderful flavor! Can’t wait to try this. Your presentation of the lattice pie crust was clever, also. Kudos to you in making something your hubby likes w/veggies. I’m glad he is trying to expand his food palate 😉 It is interesting that pot pie is two different things depending on what part of the country you come from- I grew up eating ones like yours (more like a meat pie) and yet my husband grew up in Pa Dutch country eating a soup/thick gravy and chicken w/veggies with noodle-type squares in it.

      I am originally from Nebraska. The terminology from where I grew up vs. here is different. It can be somewhat entertaining what people call the same dish or object.

      I really like to roast veggies and am finding the Hubby likes roasted veggies too!

      Let me know what you think of this Pot Pie.

      I am jealous of those who have Husbands that will eat anything! I can’t even “hide” something in a dish without J asking me about it. On the flip side, he is a good recipe critic when I want a true opinion.
