How to make Mom’s Chicken Pot Pie
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 425 degrees F or 220 degrees C.
Step 2: In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir the onion, flour, salt, and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the onion is translucent.
Step 3: Once done, remove the skillet from the heat. Then, pour in the chicken broth and milk. Bring the mixture into a boil and cook for about a minute until slightly thickened.
Step 4: Remove from the heat and stir in the chicken, peas, carrots, then the potatoes into the broth mixture.
Step 5: Into the bottom of a deep-dish pie pan, press one pie pastry, and pour the broth mixture.
Step 6: Place the remaining pastry over the mixture and press the edges to seal. Then, cut some slits into the top of the pastry and place the pie plate on a baking sheet.
Step 6: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
Step 7: Once done, remove from the oven and let the pie cool for about 15 to 20 minutes at room temperature so the filling will thicken. Slice and serve. Enjoy!
