Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie 1

This is the chicken pot pie for Thanksgiving dinner that the older '88 wanted me to make in exchange for her pumpkin crunch.  

Chicken Pot Pie

For one pie, you'll need:
1 pie crust per my recipe for cherry pie or store-bought pie crust
2 potatoes, cubed, and steamed or microwaved so they'll cook faster
2 stalks celery, diced
1 carrot, diced
1 onion, diced
1 or 2 boneless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into 1/2-inch chunks 
1 8-oz can cream of mushroom soup or 8 oz of mushrooms, sliced and 1/2 to 1 cup milk and 2 tblsp corn starch
Salt and pepper to taste

On medium-high heat, saute diced onion, celery, and carrots until softened. Add diced chicken and stir until almost cooked through. Then add diced potatoes and mushrooms. Dissolve 2 tblsp of cornstarch into 1/2 cup of milk. Add milk to mixture and stir to combine. (If you're using canned cream of mushroom soup, omit the mushrooms and milk and just add the can instead.) Add salt and pepper to taste.

Pour mixture into a pie plate with bottom crust. Form the top crust, tucking in any extra bits of crust.

Bake at 350 degrees for half an hour to 45 minutes until crust turns golden.

  1. Oh man, I can't believe this post doesn't have any comments and it's already two years old! I made this recipe yesterday and it was so delicious. It was the first time I'd made a pie crust with butter (my usual is oil-based, which is less flaky) and I was shocked at how well it turned out. Thanks a lot!

    I did cheat and use the cream of mushroom soup, but next time I'll try with the milk or cream. I did add more mushrooms though. Yum!

  2. Dragonkiri,
    I guess it was too ordinary for people? Or it got lost amidst holiday posts? Personally, it's one of my favorite recipes. Thanks so much for trying my recipe and letting me know how it turned out! I cheat with cream of mushroom soup too. Nothing wrong with that!
