Easy, beginner pot pie that your family will love.
Yield: 1 deep-dish pie
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 3/4 cups chicken broth
2/3 cup milk
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
1 (14.5 ounces) can peas and carrots
1/2 (15 ounces) can whole new potatoes, drained
1 (15 ounces) package prepared double-crust pie pastry
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion, flour, salt, and pepper in melted butter until the onion is translucent about 5 minutes.
Remove skillet from heat and pour chicken broth and milk into the skillet; bring the mixture to a boil and cook to thicken slightly about 1 minute.
Remove skillet from heat and stir chicken, peas and carrots, and potatoes into the broth mixture.
Press one pie pastry into the bottom of a deep-dish pie pan. Pour the broth mixture into the pie pastry. Top with remaining pastry and press edges together to form a seal. Cut several slits into the top pastry. Place the pie plate on a baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven until the crust is golden brown, about 30 minutes. Let pie cool and filling thicken at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes before cutting.
