Simple Chicken Pot Pie

It’s rainy here in Port Orange, Florida and that makes me want comfort food. Right now, comfort food sound like a nice chicken pot pie. I’ve shared a variation of a chicken pot pie before (here) on my kids belts blog, but I have another recipe that is really easy and more traditional. Besides pots and pans, all you need is what’s shown in the pic above.

Chicken Pot Pie

2 Chicken Breasts (Boneless)
1 Bag Frozen Mixed Veggies
Self Rising Flour
Chicken Broth
Refrigerated Pie Crust
Salt & Pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 350. In a large pot, fill halfway with chicken broth and salt & pepper to taste. Then place the chicken breasts in the pot. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium and boil until the chicken is cooked thoroughly. remove the chicken and add the mixed veggies. Cook on a low boil until veggies get tender. While they are cooking, take a fork and shred the chicken into small pieces.  Add the chicken back into the pot with the veggies. Now, in a small cup, add 2 tbsp of flour and add water and mix to make a slurry (looks like milk) and then add to the pot. Let it boil for a bit to thicken. Repeat the process until the sauce is as thick as you’d like it. Take a nine in pie pan and place one of the pie crusts on the bottom and trim the excess off the edges. After the chicken mixture has cooled a little, begin spooning it into the crust. Don’t overfill it. Then add the other pie crust to the top and seal the edges and trim excess. Place in the oven and bake until crust browns. Enjoy! (you may have enough mixture to make 2 pies, just freeze the extra one)

These taste great and are perfect for freezing if you want to make it ahead. You can also make them up, freeze them and bring them to a sick friend. They travel well when frozen. I hope you like it!
