- 3 skinless chicken breasts - bone in
- 1 14.5 oz. can chicken broth, organic
- 2 small largely chopped russet potatoes
- 1 medium largely chopped yellow onion
- 3 largely chopped celery stalks
- 2 Tbsp. vegetable/canola oil
- 2 Tbsp. all purpose flour
- 2 cup(s) frozen mixed vegetables *
- salt & pepper (to taste)
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 9 inch thawed frozen prepared pie crust
Notes* or use 2 cups of your favorite fresh veggies (steam al dente first) like mushrooms, brocolli, carrot slices, etc.
- Wash chicken breasts in water and then place in a pot with water just to cover the chicken add some salt and pepper, and garlic powder. Bring to a boil, turn off heat and cover. Let cool in the pot.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Wash and cut potatoes (you can peel if you want to, but it isn't necessary) into bite size pieces and boil until almost fork tender. Drain and set aside.
- Wash and largely chop celery and onion into bite-size pieces.
- In a large heavy skillet, over medium heat, saute celery and onion with the oil for 5 to 8 minutes. Add the frozen vegetables (or gently steamed al dente fresh veggies) and cook another 5 minutes. Add flour and cook about 30 seconds.
- Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. After it has become thick, add potatoes.
- Remove chicken from pot, toss bones, and cut into bite-size pieces and add to vegetable mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Pour mixture into a 9 inch deep dish pie plate and cover with pie shell. Make sure you crimp the edges of the pie shell to the dish so no juices spill in oven.
- Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes or until pie shell is cooked and golden brown.

Really yummy. Took about 30 for prep. I would use a deep dish pie crust. Also, you need 2 premade pie dishes so that you can use one for the top crust. Saved time by using precooked chicken and home style hash brown for the potatoes. 2 year old ate it all up.

This recipe came together in about an hour and a half.(Not bad for Homemade Chicken Pot Pie) Both of my boys (9 and 11) really like it. I reccomend putting a pie crust on the bottom as well as on the top. (More pastry is always better for a pot pie!) I also added some Chicken Flavoring Seasoning found at my local fresh market. This was a yummy recipe and I do recommend it for sure!

Very good! I usually only eat mrs. calendars frozen pot pie. I used 2 pie crusts, one for the top and one for the bbottom. I also used boneless skinless chicken breasts.
