Directions

  1. In a large saucepan over medium high heat, combine the chicken meat, chicken broth, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Cover and let simmer for 30 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear.
  2. Remove the chicken and let cool. Pour the remaining chicken broth mixture into a measuring cup. Let stand; spoon off fat. Add enough milk to the broth mixture to equal 2 1/2 cups. Cut chicken into 1/2 inch pieces.
  3. In the same pan, melt butter or margarine over medium heat. Add the onion and celery. Saute, stirring, for 3 minutes. Stir in flour until well blended. Gradually stir in broth mixture. Simmer, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens and boils. Add the chicken, vegetables, parsley and thyme. Pour mixture into a 1 1/2 quart deep casserole dish.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  5. Roll out pastry 1 inch larger than the diameter of the casserole dish on a lightly floured surface. Cut slits in the pastry for venting air. Place pastry on top of casserole. Roll edges and cut away extra pastry; flute edges by pinching together. Reroll scraps to cut into decorative designs. Place on top of pastry. Brush pastry with beaten egg and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Let cool for 10 minutes and serve.

I made this in a pinch, not having any creamed soup for the chicken pot pie I normally make. This has replaced the old recipe I used. It isn't as easy as the one with the cream of chicken soup but the flavor greatly surpasses the "easy" one. (not that this is difficult at all, it just takes a few more minutes to prepare.) Very tasty, VERY creamy! My husband, who loves chicken pot pie said this was the best he had tasted. I agree. Thank you for your recipe. NOTE: I use two crusts: one on top, one on the bottom. It does increase the fat and calories but the taste is worth the extra time on the treadmill!!! You may have to add to the cooking time with two crusts. I just judge by the appearance of the top and the bottom is always done.

10+++Stars. Restaurant quality and better. First I baked two pie crusts(Pillsbury-ready crusts..much easier) in 9 inch pie plates. Then I made the filling. I used 1 can chicken broth w/roasted veg flavoring to cook chicken. I added more like 5 tbs of butter to cook the onion/celery-I used a heaping 1/3 cup flour and added the whole can of broth and like 3 cups of milk/heavy cream mixture. I wanted alot of sauce to make sure it was plenty of liquid. I used corn, peas, cooked cut up carrots and potatoes(microwave cooks potatoes in no time), and salt and pepper to taste. I then poured my pot pie filling in the pie plates and topped with bisquick mixture(makes a great thick top crust-1 cup bisquick, 1/2 milk and 1 egg mix and pour on top) then cooked for 30 minutes. OH MY!!! DELICIOUS. I think the flavored chicken broth added such wonderful flavors. I've found a keeper with this recipe!

This was one of the most delicious recipes for Chicken Pot Pie-worth the work. I served this to my mother in law and husband and they both loved it. It takes a little bit extra work, but it's well worth it!
