Chicken Pot Pie


If you ask my hubby what his favorite dinner I make is, his answer would be my Chicken Pot Pie. I have used several variations of this recipe over the past few years, but have finally found a way to make it that we love! I hate using "cream of" soups, so I found a way to make my own, pretty easily! I'm happy to share this recipe with you and I hope you love it as much as we do!

The first thing you need is an adorable little helper like this one! She is an essential ingredient :)

Check out those perfect little chub hands. I can't handle the cuteness! 

Ok, I'm really going to give you the recipe now!

Chicken Pot Pie
-1 bag (about 12 oz) of frozen peas, carrots, beans...whatever frozen veggies you like.
-1/3 cup coconut oil or butter
-1/3 cup flour
-1/4 cup chopped onion
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
-1 3/4 cups of chicken broth 
-2/3 cup milk
-2-3 cups of chicken (depending on how meaty you like it)
1 refrigerated pie crust

In a saucepan melt the coconut oil or butter. Then stir in the onions to saute them for like a minute. Add the flour, salt and pepper and stir until the mixture is bubbley. Then stir in the broth and the milk. 
Heat the mixture until it has been boiling for at least one minute then remove it from the heat and add the veggies and chicken.
I just use the refrigerated pie crust. I would make my own crust, but let's be honest, ain't nobody got time for that right?
I place one of the crusts on the bottom and the other on the top. I know you already knew that, but somebody out there didn't, so that was for them! I like to sprinkle a little cracked pepper over the sauce and veggies just for some pzazz.
Cut slits in the top for ventilation and bake at 425 for about 30 minutes or until top is browned!
Yum! There's not much better than a freshly baked pot pie!
If you try this recipe out and love it as much as we do, let me know. And then bring me the leftovers so I can enjoy it with you:)
