Equipment

  • 12" pie pan
  • oven adjusted to the center rack position
  • 5-quart stock pot
  • large skillet
  • wooden spoon
  • Measuring cups & spoons 
  • cutting board & knife

Ingredients

  • 1 pound white meat chicken cubed
  • 19 ounces frozen mixed vegetables
  • ½ cup yellow onion diced
  • 3 tablespoons butter divided
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper divided
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • cups chicken stock warmed to remove the chill
  • cup whole milk warmed to remove the chill
  • 14.1 ounces pie crust (2 discs, refrigerated)

Instructions

  • In a small skillet, heat one tablespoon of butter and add the seasoned white meat chicken chunks. Personally I prefer the classic salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder (but you can cater to your liking). After the chicken is cooked, set it aside. 
  • Add onion and frozen vegetables to a stock pot with 1/4 cup of water and add 2 tablespoons of butter. Let the veggies cook while stirring constantly for about 5 minutes over med-high heat. 
  • After veggies are fork-tender, add your flour to the mixture, and coat all veggies. Then, whisk in the warmed milk, and broth to create a roux. To warm your milk and broth, simply pop them in the microwave in microwave-safe containers for 90 seconds. This allows them to mix in with the flour easier.
  • Add chicken to the pot, and additional black pepper; stir until thick and uniformly creamy over high heat. This will take about 20 minutes to thicken and cook off some of the liquid.
  • Heat oven to 425°F. and line a large pie plate with one pie crust-prick holes in the bottom using a fork; set aside.
  • Once mixture is ready, add it to the pie, and then cover the top of the pie, and crimp edges. Be sure to add holes, and slits to allow the pie to vent. 
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until the pie is a golden brown color.
  • Allow pie to rest for 15 minutes before slicing.

Notes

Nutritional values may vary and are meant to be a guide.
Freezing Chicken Pot Pie
You can freeze these pies either assembled and raw, or fully baked. Wrap cooked and cooled pie in multiple layers of plastic wrap and foil to prevent freezer burn. To freeze a raw pie(s), place assembled pie on a baking dish in the freezer and allow the pie to fully freeze. Wrap pie in multiple layers of plastic wrap and foil to prevent freezer burn.
To bake from raw, heat oven to 400 degrees F. covered for 30 minutes, and then 30 minutes uncovered or until warmed throughout.
To bake a fully cooked pie, bake at 400 degrees F. for 30 minutes or until warmed throughout.
Thickening the Filling -  You can also use a cornstarch slurry to thicken this filling. Simply mix 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with 1/4 cup of water and whisk. Add this in-place of the flour, or in addition if you want to cut the cooking time down.
