Savory Classic Chicken Pot Pie

Growing up one of my favorite foods ever was chicken pot pie. Not the store bought stuff, no no. My stepmom is an excellent cook and chicken pot pie was made from scratch and that’s the way it should be. Don’t let the prep work scared you from making this fabulous meal at home!

  • 1 cup onions, chopped 
  • 1 cup celery, chopped 
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped 
  • 1 cup broccoli, chopped 
  • 1/2 cup green beans, chopped 
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 5 large garlic cloves, minced 
  • 4 tbs oil
  • 3 chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces 
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup coffee cream 
  • 5 tbs butter 
  • 5 tbs flour
  • 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning 
  • 1 tsp oregano 
  • Salt & Pepper to taste 
  • Extra Flaky Vodka Pie Crust <- click for recipe
  1. In a large pot heat half the oil over medium-high heat. 
  2. Saute all veggies until tender. Remove and set aside.
  3. Heat the other half of the oil and cook chicken until cooked through. Remove and mix into the veggies.
  4. Time for the white sauce.  Lower heat to medium and melted butter and garlic together. Once the butter starts to sizzle around the garlic whisk in the oregano, poultry seasoning and flour until well combined.  
  5. Immediately add all the liquid and whisk together until well blended. 
  6. Raise the heat a little, continuously whisking until thick.
  7. Pour the veggies and chicken into the white sauce and mix until everything is evenly coated. 
  8. Season with salt and pepper to taste. I would recommend 1/2 tsp of seasoning salt to start with. 
  9. From here you can pour the filling into a pie crust and I have to recommend my Vodka Pie Crust. A good flaky crust goes magnificently with the creamy richness of this pie. ❤😍
  10. Baker until the pie crust is golden brown or according to instructions. 
  11. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before cutting. 
  12. Enjoy!
