Easy and Simple Chicken Pot Pies

I have always wanted to try my hand at making homemade pot pies. When I asked Papa Bear what he would like me to make for him last Saturday, he said pot pies.
I used Mom's recipe for home made pie crust. She was given this recipe by her former father in law.
 Step 1: Chop 1/2 onion and saute with about 1/3 cup of butter.
Add in 1/3 cup of flour with salt (1/2 tsp + 1 pinch) and pepper (1/4 tsp) until blended well.
 Step 2: Gradually add in 2 cups of chicken broth (canned, boxed or season cube)
and 1/2 cups of milk.
Continue stirring until thick and bubbly.
 Step 3: Str in 2 1/2 cups of chicken or turkey (I used canned chicken)
and 2 cups of frozen mixed vegetables.
Spoon chicken mixture into a crust lined pie pan.
Top with the second crust. I just doubled Mom's recipe.
Seal the edges and cut slits in several places in the top crust.

 Step 4: Bake 30-40 minutes on 425 degrees.
There are so many variations you could do with this.
I want to try one with turkey, wild rice and mushrooms.
It was a perfect dinner for a stay at home, watching football Saturday!



Hi April

It was so great to hear from you! This pot pie looks wonderful - I'm adding it to my menu this month!
