I grew up eating chicken pot pies. Twice a week my mother would drive to a local university to take night classes in order to finish her doctorate. My dad can fry a mean egg and make rice, sort of, but that was the end of his culinary talents. Anyway, he'd heat us up chicken pot pies and we'd sit in the den (ooh, don't tell my momma) and eat them while we watched TV. Tonight I made my first attempt at a homemade chicken pot pie and all I have to say is Marie Callendar watch out!
Here's how I did it.
While I was boiling the chicken in one pot, I diced potatoes and carrots.
Then I sauteed them in butter with some garlic, salt, and pepper.
I added chicken broth and let it cook down until it was tender.
about a 1/2 cup of milk, and some English peas.
After mixing well, I poured into a store bought pie shell and covered with the extra shell.
I just baked it at 400 for about 30 minutes.
I think they liked it.
