Chicken Pot Pie, Oh My!

Hello my friends and thanks for coming back today to see what I have for you. Yes, it is homemade chicken pot pie. Who doesn't love chicken pot pie?! It is so good for the fall and such a comfort food. It just warms the soul!

Here is what you will need:

1/3 cup of onion
1/3 cup of butter
1/3 cup of flour
1/2 tsp. of salt
1/4 tsp. of pepper

Saute onions in the butter until translucent. Then add the flour in cooking until thickened. Add the salt and pepper.

When it is thicker add:

1 3/4 cups of chicken broth - I use reduce sodium broth or you can use homemade broth
1/2 cup of milk

Keep cooking and stirring until nice and thick. Next you will add the following:

1 cup of diced potatoes - depending on how many potatoes you like in your pie
2 cups of mixed vegies - I use frozen ones
2 1/2 cups of cubed or shredded cooked chicken

Mix well and place in your pie shell. Top with with top crust placing slits for steam to escape. Bake for one hour at 350 degrees. Let sit for about 10-15 minutes then enjoy!

My husband like to have extra gravy on the side to pour onto his chunk of pot pie. I don't need the extra gravy and love the pie the way it is. lol He just grew up with the extra gravy.

Oh've whetted my appetite with these delicious photos of your amazing chicken pot pie! Divine! Even though I can't eat something so delicious (milk intolerance, amongst other things), I'm eye-balling that recipe closely to see where I can be innovative. I can imagine the aroma in your house as this is baking...yummmmm...
