Chicken pot pie is a classic comfort food that’s perfect for cooler weather. This homemade version is a bit more involved than popping a frozen pie in the oven, but the results are well worth the effort.
Start by making the crust from scratch using flour, butter, and ice water. Next, sauté some onion, garlic, carrots, and celery in a pan until they’re soft. Add in some flour to create a roux, then gradually stir in chicken broth and milk to make a creamy sauce. Finally, add in cooked chicken and frozen peas and cook until the filling is hot and bubbly.
Pour the filling into a prepared pie dish and top with the crust. Cut some slits in the crust to allow steam to escape, then bake the pie in the oven until the crust is golden brown and the filling is heated through.
Serve this homemade chicken pot pie hot out of the oven and enjoy the delicious, comforting flavors of this classic dish.
